Wasn't Eklund on TSN once or Sportsnet?

chris tienery seems like the guy with tons of skill, but was put on the 4th line because london was stacked with talent.

id say he has 2nd line upside whens all said and done, he has probabaly the best junior coach and team to develop in.

Sportsnet at the trade deadline once. It was part of Sportsnet's gong show years, where they realized they couldn't compete with TSN in terms of professionalism or knowledge, so they went for "cool pizza party, internet generation target audience yay!"

Crowning moment was when eklund said that it was an E5 that Ryan Smyth would negotiate a new contract with the Oilers, and then he was traded to the Isles like 5 minutes later.

When Eklund decides to come up with a rumor, I imagine he buys a ton of peyote, and then tells his mother not to enter the basement, because he is about to go on a Native American styled spiritual vision.

Man, teams must be scared ****less of Slepyshev never leaving the KHL. He's really tumbling down the board.

Has anyone ever broken down Eklund's percentage of being correct when he rates things E5, E4, etc? It seems to me he's hardly ever right except for the cases where he posts "rumors" about stuff everyone is already thinking anyway.

Which is odd. Because in the 4th round, what is the conversion rate of a pick to the NHL? Seems like he's worth a chance at this stage, surely?

there's a website somewhere that does track his accuracy overall (not by grade, I don't think). Usually his E5s are "I'm going to post this a minute or two after the team tweets their press release and hope no one notices the timestamp"


Carolina drafts Erik Karlsson. Always great when you can add a Norris winner in the 4th round of the entry draft.

Still might be worth a risk unless the teams know for sure he doesn't ever want to come over considering the success rate of 4th rounders anyway
