Maple Leafs Will Go "All in" on Nash and a UFA still playing. BOTH [Eklund.]

Now I never put a lot of faith in what he says but I found this to be an interesting read and thought I would bring it here to see what people thought. To make it easier on people I will post what he said. (As it is a short twitter like answer.)


Quote:
Just spoke to a source who met with the Leafs this last week and was told that not only are they prepared to go "All In" on Rick Nash, they are also planning to make a huge UFA signing as well. There are plans to bring "two stars in tandem" to the Leafs this summer. One via trade and one via signing.

"they are going to sell each player on the fact that they are bringing in both players..."

Honestly I found it to be an interesting idea I just don't know where all this cap space is coming from. Also this "UFA." he talks about I keep wondering if it is Suter or Parise.

Thoughts?

Site hits down?

Post a rumor involving the Leafs and high profile trade targets/free agents.

Glad to know Eklund confirming that Nash will NOT be a Leaf.

Eklund has less accuracy than blind guessing.

"Star players heading to the Leafs!!" equates to nothing more than: "Give me hits for my ********!!!"

Eklund doesn't know his head from his ass when it comes to hockey. The fact that he's actually been able to maintain his site for this long boggles the mind. The guy is as useless at **** on a bull.

A few years ago, the Sportsnet panel had Eklund on their trade deadline show. Kypreos made him out to be a complete fool.

Kyreos is awesome, don't know why he gets hated on so much. Better than Dreger or some of those fools who have never played hockey.

It's no one in particular. Now if the Leafs do go out and sign someone or word gets out that they were in the running for them, Eklund can come out and say, "See, that was the 'UFA' I was referring to way back in April".

Nope. Almost certain not happening. What kind of UFA wants to play with Toronto anyway, after this trainwreck of a season :/.

Exactly. No one backpedals more than Eklund.

I wouldn't mind Nash if he weakens CBJ's bargaining power by putting/keeping us on his short list of teams.

a) Eklund
b) Eklund
c) Eklund
d) Even if it were Burke himself saying this, I wouldn't believe it. Remember when we were apparently going to go hard after Tavares (before he was drafted)?

I agree with you, but who says he didn't? Yes he was clearly unsuccessful, but maybe the Isle's just refused to play ball or else demanded more than Burke was willing to pay.

The funny part is, that this thread has News Article tag on it.

"just spoke to a source who met with the Leafs"

So Burke is scheduling meetings with random people around the NHL to tell them about what he plans to do this summer? Does Eklund really think we are that stupid?

If he trades for Nash, you have to believe that Kadri is as good as gone if he's not parting with Gardiner. But, it's Eklund, so it could all be irrelevant.

I love how all the Eklund threads start with "not that I believe a word he says BUT". What a joke.
