Because it's not to determine the legitimacy of the rumor it's to discuss the idea within it. No one actually thinks Eklund is right but it leads to a good discussion on whether there would be interest from both teams.

falk and stoner aint exactly breaking the bank.

and the islanders are not below the salary floor. the league would not allow a transaction that puts a team below the salary floor.

I don't know why anyone tries to keep track. Most hockey rumors amount to nothing. They aren't predictions, which are judged by whether they come true or not. We're talking about feelings and interest. When someone like Eklund says that "Team X is interested in acquiring Player Y," that's not a prediction and an average person ought to understand that it has a very low probability of amounting to an actual trade.

That doesn't make any sense. If "no one actually thinks Eklund is right," then you're ruling out Minnesota being interested in Okposo (which is all that the rumor is), so how could you possibly have "a good discussion on whether there would be interest from both teams"?

Okposo must have horrible value around the league. Islanders are much better off keeping him instead of dumping him for nothing.

CREW- It's Arthur Staple, not Staples.
