I'll take a stab here...

What if it's Phoenix/Quebec info? Ek said it's "affecting two major UFAs", who could be Whitney and Doan. He said he couldn't write a blog becuase they could be "heading out" and also that something was brewing in eastern Canada (i.e. Quebec).

Yotes to Quebec T6S(4)

Is that a direct copy-paste from the past 6 July 25ths??

I don't think he's too far off the truth with that.

From Eklund's blog, an hour before the JVR/Schenn trade: "Flyers and Leafs are reportedly in discussions.. I am told it is NOT JvR for Schenn."

I remember last summer when he broke the Mike Richards trade and everyone on HF went crazy calling him a hack. Then Mike Richards got traded like a half hour after that. Good times.

It is the offseason, which means the rights of some players will be obtained and some won't. Then there will be at least one trade, plus several players will sign with a team of their choice. I will have more after July 1! (e5)

Same ole Eklund jokes. Been going on for what, 3 or 4 years now? We get it he isn't credible. But i bet that doesn't stop 90% of you to log onto hockey buzz and make a thread huh?

The fact that his site is still so popular really lowers my confidence towards the hockey fan base as a whole. Luckily most of the young immature ones stay over there.

As much as I hate him, Dwayne has an easy life and he is good as what he does. Write 2 or 3 blogs a day that are sure to convince and entice many of the younger more gullible fans, make sure you include 1 or 2 key points that ensure they'll be back for the next article, like mentioning the Leafs/Habs or saying there's something big happening that you'll give an update on later.

He's the wrong kind of person, but he succeeds in life because of all the people that fall for it. People like him will always be around. Our population is so large that there will always be believers. It's sad.

I'm pretty sure that defeats the purpose of why we are telling ppl not to goto his site, cuz its ********, and there is no need to go there.

On Friday morning, he posted that the Staal deal was not going to happen.

On Friday afternoon, the trade happened.

If you consider that an example of accuracy, the laugh is on you.

Apparently you dont know the difference between "rumors" and "breaking trades".

I dont care what he said Friday morning, he broke the trade when it was done.

Eklund spews a lot of crap, but he's been right on a few things in the past, so at 50% accuracy...

He's wrong on the first part. It's probably minor. Chris Mason's rights traded, Jets sign Guatafsson.

Correct on major news from Eastern Canada. PKP has finalized a purchase of the Phoenix Coyotes.

You didn't prove anything. Unless you can confirm that no one else posted those rumours before him he's not correct about those.

The JStaal to Canes rumour has been floating before he even mentioned it. You just have no idea who else breaks them.

50%? Closer to .005% if you consider how much garbage rumours he spews out every day.
