Ovechkin is the logical name to infer out of this, I could maybe see Malkin but not likely.

I love when Eklund does his month completely generic, mention no teams and no players rumor, and just floats it out there for traffic.

I'm sure if you polled most teams, about 20% of their players are thoroughly unavailable, so really he is covering any of about 150 players with that rumor.

Ovechkin?

It really fits Ovechkin, Iginla or Giroux?

This is like a ******* riddle

I can more than likely say the player he is talking about is in-fact Ovechkin, he was a phenom since entering the league, was the best player at one point in the NHL and was claimed to be the face of the Capitals for the next 2 decades. Yep, it makes too sense if this is major major deal in the mix that would shock the hockey world.

But once again, this Eklund, so who knows. It may or may not be true.

Not saying teams dont change their minds and bounce back, but as of now Panthers no longer interested in Luongo.

@Eklund. Sorry pal. Just talked to Dale Tallon and he says nothing has changed. Still talking with Van. Nothing imminent. High price.

If I had to guess, i'd say Ovi, or possibly St Louis.

I don't think you guys understand Eklund.

Just because he puts out a rumor doesn't mean the trade is going to happen, it just means there are talks going on and it could.

I still see him as a credible source in a way, it's ridiculous how people here bash him because trades don't always happen when he reports rumors.

Rumors ≠ Trade Will Happen. Doesn't make them lies.

Obviously Eklund is following up on his Miller to LA or Detroit rumor. Both teams desperately need a starting goaltender.

Nah, it's not being able to distinguish between pulling **** out of your ass and having actual sources.

The problem with "rumors" like this are they're so vague that it's easy to end up looking "right" when something big happens. Especially when it's this close to the trade deadline, it doesn't take a hockey insider to predict that a big move is very likely to occur soon.

Unless names are given, then this is no better than me simply stating "I can guarantee some of the contenders will improve their team by the deadline".
