Hah, it's somewhat of an amusing diversion but making any kind of statement about twitter and rumors is kind of dumb. Poor rumor mongering has been going on for a long time. Twitter allows it to spread marginally faster

e: he just posted a link to what I can only assume is goatse because Im' not clicking it

You'd think people would learn, but nope, I'm sure the next time Incarcerated Bob or whatever random idiot tweets a new unfounded rumor we'll have 10 more pages of discussion here.

Want a fun way to pass the time? Pretend to be a hockey insider on Twitter and people will eat it up. That’s exactly what happened last night, when a few friends and I were sitting around bored....


Yup, he's a fake.

Yup, guy is a fraud. Oh well, the Nash saga continues. It's too bad these writers feel like they can accomplish something by doing stuff like this. It's only going to make people hate him and think he's not credible in any sort of way.

Negative attention is not the way to go, not even in the world of twitter.

I thought it was hysterical. Good for someone just to completely own everyone who believes accounts like Hockeyy ********.

Edit - Apparently the insider part is blocked out lol

I am kind of happy he did it. Hopefully this will help start discrediting these other frauds.

Konopka vs Halpern

Anyone here rather have Knoopka over the older Halpern as the 4th line C.

Guy was pretty good on the face offs and of course he also likes to bust faces when needed.

I'm not against the Halpern signing... Just wondering if Konopka would have been a good fit here considering his dual roles.

If it's not coming from TSN, a beat writer, or a legitimate media outlet, it's usually a bad source. And it's really not so difficult to do a little internet research to check out these hacks' track records and whether they have been reliable in the past. Yet some people get fooled by it every time.

greg used to post on my old BB. He maintained then as he does now that he has connections. Mostly every "inside scoop" he got turned up zero. I recall only a few occasions where he was accurate.

Ironically, he fought constantly trying to prove his legitimacy, yet undermined it at the same time, all the time. I see nothing has changed. the kid has issues.

Every "insider" should just slap on a "Social Experiment" bit after each rumor. Seems like the best way to get respect.
