Major trade brewing, could happen today?

Quote:
Hockey Buzz Eklund ‏@Eklund 10h
Rumblings from a friend at nhl that they are hearing a major trade could be coming down the pipeline.next 24 hours. We will see...

Don't know how to judge this, Eklund said many things at the draft but either a) none occurred or b) he reported stuff after the media. I'm taking this with a grain of salt but thought I'd share it.

Wonder IF it does happen if the Oilers are involved..

Last Eklund thread on HF was over a week old. Needs more clicks.

There's a very small possibility that something might happen possibly in the future, but maybe not.

these guys like eklund are the ones that give the media a bad rap. no integrity at all. guessers that are bound to be right every once in a while when reporting every possible scenario repeatedly to info hungry fans.

I seriously think that some of his "sources" are just staff members trolling him by making random **** up and passing it on as pure gold. I mean, even if he just guessed by chance he couldn't be as wrong as often as he is, right?

Has Eklund ever been right? I mean, about something that wasn't obvious.

Many times, he has sources. He's typically good around Free Agency. But people don't understand, he purposely makes up stuff too to get hits. Other times stuff could fall through.

A couple of times, it usually has something to do with the Flyers...but his success rate is around 0.00000002

Eklunds Chick: "omfg man, the stuff is all gone, we need to get more, how much money do you have left?"

Eklund: "Damn girl you did all of that by yourself in one night? how are you still alive? Let me check my bank account.... Nope you cleaned me out AGAIN"

Eklunds Chick: "Well damn you better get some quick cash by the time i wake up or I'm outta here! and I'm taking the puppy!"

Eklund: "Noo not the puppy! Poor Mr. Cuddles! I better get some clicks ASAP.. hmm trade rumors... sponsors...clicks... HFBoards!!.. ahhh easy money to make her happy.. Let the good times roll"

sorry, but when he names a UFA followed by naming half the league is where he could go is not being good. he rarely names one team and ufa as a match--he names sometimes up to twenty teams where a uFA could go and you are giving him credit?

My prediction is that he thinks the Sam Gagner to the flyers rumour that started last week needs to be spread again

He's broke them before anyone else before, team and player. He's broke trades before at the Deadline. He's worked for the nhl before so I'm sure he has sources. He was on SN this year for Trade Deadline. But he bs's alot too and other times, could be right but it never happened in the end.

It's the kind of thing where if you throw enough crap against the wall, eventually something will stick. A generic rumor such as this makes it easy to hit. If any trade goes down in the next 3-4 days - he can say, see I told you so.
