Nope ,, Came out of nowhere

Reminds me of Hossa effort back in 2010

Hawks came out of nowhere and caught the hockey world by surprise

Been out all day, Saw Darren Dreger's tweet to Chris Therien at 2:27pm that said as of ten minutes ago Flyers still in on Parise and Suter. I'm still hopeful.

They are quite clearly made up. There is no doubt about it. Sure he hits a home-run from time to time, but someone did the maths on it and you have a better chance of randomly guessing that he does of reporting trades. While he might actually report "real rumours" from time to time, 90% of them involve the biggest teams with the largest fan bases.

How many times have we been told a player is going to Philly or Toronto.

He stole a trade rumour directly from me once. When I was talking about the flyers looking at Jaybo and what they would have to give up. Needless to say, the next day he reported that the flyers were in talks with the flames, and they were offering the exact same things. He also steals rumours directly from other beat writers and passes them off as his own, he was caught doing so.

He's not very intelligent, but he peddles rumours and people lap it up. It's incredible. How people can jusitfy paying for his stuff is crazy.
Not buying it, it happens. It's too easy to discredit him and say he makes it all up, but gets one right occasionally. He doesn't shy away from what he is, and the hockey community is a devoted and active one. We eat it up too.

I'll be shocked if either Parise or Suter decide to sign with the Flyers. Just don't see it happening. I don't really even want it to happen, honestly, especially not at the reported price tags.

I'm with you. Obviously, the instant gratification would be off the charts, but the repercussions would probably be staggering.

Interesting deal for the Flames--is Hudler a C or W? Might he be replacing Jokinen as Iginla's pivot?
He's a winger, Flames need centers. Beats me. I'm happy we aren't paying him 4 mill a year.

Just think about this, and obviously I understand one is on a RFA contract while the other is on a UFA contract, but Jiri Hudler now makes more than Claude Giroux.

i agree. these guys aren't even franchise players. its crazy that we'd throw those contracts around but i guess that's what we do. offer the world and snatch off the plate a year or two before the no trades kick in.

I really hope Parise plays for the Wild. I have a girlish soft spot for those hometown team stories.

Unfortunately, my one source tells me that he doesn't believe the Flyers will land either Suter or Parise.
