What is reality though. I mean if you look at Dreger's record he is as full of crap as Ek.

If you're looking for reality in the "unofficial trade rumor/proposal" thread then you're in the wrong thread. This entire thread is foolishness, there's not a shred of reality in any of it.

Yours had humor to it when it is done 4/5 times after its redundant.

No one who reports rumours is going to have a very high batting average. Even Bob MacKenzie is almost always wrong and there is no doubt he is legit.

But when someone posts rumors about deals involving players that were not even on the appropriate team at the time the deal was suppose to have happened and then about contracts that are clearly illegal I'd say that it is pretty much time to stop giving any air space to the individual.

Really?
There's actually quite a difference between 2nd and 5th.

Hockey gods help Tambellini if Hemsky injures himself between now and the deadline.

I almost think if we can get a 1st for him now, do it and be done with it.

That clears the way for us to take Grigorenko with our 1st and then say a Pouliot with a second 1st.

BPA is the only way to go. Hopefully Grigerenko falls in our lap. Traditionally, the UFA market holds some pretty good defenseman. When we have 4-5 top end forwards in their prime, I'd like to think the better crop of UFA's would have Edmonton on their short lists.

Belanger will not net blum as a return.

Damn if I have that kind of value may as well send Horcoff the other way with me and tell Pittsburgh to keep their 5th. But that means that Horcoff is still on my team..........

NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think Blum's hugely overrated but your right. Nashville has enough center's, most (all?) better than Belanger.

Unless it's some geek fabricating rumors for his blog, rumors can't really be 'wrong'. Bob Mac reports on the trade talks based from legitimate sources. Probably <1% of discussions between GMs result in trades. It doesn't mean that Bob Mac is wrong in what he's hearing.

Not sure why all the complaining about the Treena rumours. I don't really care how legit or not. They are interesting. Something to file away. Something to ponder. And that last batch didn't seem totally out of left field. I found that they could be plausible. I spent some time thinking about them. More than I can say for a lot of posts I read. lol

This time of year its fun to take it all in and see what happens. What doesn't. The hints of what almost happened. It's all good. What the hell else we have to get excited about. Well, except for the top end of the draft every year. lol

Exactly. The hockey club ain't very entertaining to watch 80% of the time. Treena makes for interesting discussion atleast.

My favorite TreenasOil tweet was when she "reported" that Darryl Sutter was fired because he wanted to trade Iginla to NYR for a package including Wojtek Wolski.

I think he/she forgot that Sutter was fired about two weeks before Wolski was traded to NYR from PHX lol.

Since people want to have stuff to talk about, here's a trade idea to dissect.....

To Washington: Hemsky and Gagner

To Edmonton: Washington's and Colorado's 1st round picks and Johansson
