Dreger vs. Eklund

LOL, Dreger calling out Eklund today on his B.S. has to be the best stuff I've ever seen on Twitter.

Eklund: Ws just told by a VERY good source that JVR may have been the last piece Leafs Needed to Make Run at Nash?Remember the Jackets wanted him.

Dreger reply: Not sure who's reporting...maybe @Eklund , but Brian Burke couldn't be more emphatic in saying Toronto is NOT in on Nash. As you were...


AND ANOTHER ONE.

Eklund: Was just told Florida is OUT on Luongo. They had interest but grew tired of the Canucks demands and are moving on. (e4)

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


Ek replies with some stumbling horsesh*t to paraphrase "Well I can only go by what I hear"

What a fraud, but hilarious.

Love it. I hope Eklund slowly loses every single follower. I can't believe he has over 126000. I unfollowed him a long time ago, even though I knew he was ******** way before.

I love that a source being used is himself.

Reminds me of a mindless HFboards debate - I'm surprised people don't approve of this.

Dreger is a "peon" as well. A bit higher than Eklund on the food chain.

I can't believe all of the Dreger hate. Sure he is annoying, but he is in a different league in comparison to Eklund.

Don't remember the last time Dreger came up with anything useful. Eklund seems more entertaining. Both lack factual content.

Since when does everyone have **** against Dreger? He is without question miles ahead of Eklund.

I'm not a Dreger fan either, but to compare to Eklund? Different levels here. Eklund actually spouts off about random crap that i think we all know never occurs, but we all want to believe and he gets hits. Some of the things he says are right out to lunch. Dreger just "hears rumblings" and "talk around the league" etc... He doesn't report much but still....

Dreger was first to report:

Rome
Tootoo
Armstrong
T.Mitchell
Konopka
J.Mitchell
Gustavsson
Smyth
Hudler - unconfirmed
Crabb
Brodeur - unconfirmed

I'd say he did pretty well. The three best imo are McKenzie, then Dreger, then LeBrun.

I agree, and would roll in Kypreos next. He was first on a few this weekend as well.

Dreger at least has something useful to say. Eklund just makes up crap.

Don't be fooled by Dreger's condescension, they're both idiots.

this is all fans.

Can you pick out anyone that can consistently give you "inside" info and reports about trades that actually happen hours or even minutes before the trade is announced to the general public?

Dregger reports on rumours and things he's hearing. Eklund seems to make most of his stuff up, but the bottom line is rumours are rumours. Take them for what they are worth. It almost NEVER means that a trade is imminent because if the two parties agreed on it the trade would already be done.

Dregger reports on real rumours. They just usually don't materialize into anything more than that. Sometimes they do though (JVR/Schenn), so just take them for what they are worth.

I don't actually follow Pierre, I suppose I should give it a try. I'm one of the few that actually likes his hockey analysis.

Edit: wtf Pierre hasn't tweeted since October

At least someone is finally calling Eklund out because he is wrong about 99% of the time with all his rumours from his so called sources which are never right, so I say it's great Dreger did that.

Dregger's analysis isn't always insightful but he is definitely better informed than Eklund who's just a rumor monger at best. Its great seeing Eklund get shut down like that.
