Do NHL GM's come to HF and look at the proposals ?

I've got two right in my life:

Schneider to the Habs for a pick

Rucinsky for Audette

I doubt Burke or Sutter read these boards but when Toronto & Calgary made the Phaneuf trade in Janurary 2010 the players involved sound like a type of deal someone would post on here because at that time no one thought a trade like with Phaneuf being the centre peace would happen, especially with the type of players the Leafs were giving up.

If they are smart, they would. No doubt that some of the posters here are smarter than some of these bonehead GMs.

Smarter in what way? Smarter in general? Probably. Smarter with regards to building and running an NHL hockey team? No.

Not the GM's themselves. I'd imagine that people working under the GM's though would check them. I can see a lot of interns being assigned social media duties (because of how big it's gotten) and using HF probably isn't outside the realm of possibility.

People should realize that with the vast amount of proposals made eventually a couple are bound to be clairvoyant.

Then what's the reason that the bonehead GMs are actually GMs with teams, and these posters are not?

HF is a resource. I would expect GMs to use every available resource, why not browse the boards? Wouldn't you?

Have you seen the **** posted on here? I'd only come here for comic value, like the Simpsons GDTs on the Devils board.

If these trade rumor boards are a resource then the NHL Gm's ought to be scouring the local elementary schools while they are at it.

Some of the best posts originate in the schoolyard.

General Managers only use HF to test a response to a potential trade by their hardcore-fanbase.
