Yesterday LA and Habs were e4 and LA ended up trading Scrivens to Edmonton for a 3rd.

I'm gonna go with Volpatti to Vancouver for a 5th or something along those lines.

I agree it's fun to talk about but out of curiosity has eklund ever accurately predicted a trade? I'm honestly asking.

The Jeff Carter deal to Columbus he broke, there has been a few others, but they are few and far between.

He does have someone in philly sending him informations. I cannot recall him calling something right about other teams.

I find this rumor so weird it might be true... usually his rumors are either very logical or very vague.

Because having three goalies on the NHL roster clearly wasn't enough.

I'm not sure Halak can be traded. The Blues have their 2nd, but not Ryder.

Would love to see Jaro Halak in a Caps uniform! Holtby/Halak might be a nice tandem going forward. Both young goaltender who could play a 1A/1B type situation.

However, I don't think Halak is the answer to the Capitals problems.

Yes but from how many guesses? A still think that if put all the players who are available for trade speculation (contract ending,two good goalies, openly unsatisfied in the club) and randomly pick one of the team that can be interested in(everytime there are some logical choices like the team without chances of playoff will not bring a contract-ending player, team with solved goaltending will not bring another goalie etc.), i think i will have the same success rate as Eklund.

If the Flyers are mentioned, often times, there is some merit to what he's saying. If he says "E5", then it's generally true. The problem is that the guy makes a living off of rumors, so he makes crap up to help get views on his site. So really, anything under E5 is nothing, especially if it's under E4. The guy has contacts though, and he's been the first to report on several. Just gotta understand that it's how he makes his living.

You would be hard pressed to find a single Caps fan who supports ADDING another goalie. If Management goes this route, and continues to ignore the D, my head will explode.

Don't the Caps have plenty of average goaltenders? I don't really understand the interest from the Caps point of view.

lol...holtby sits 3 on the depth chart right now. so...rethink that.

as for this rumor. nobody in the nhl media gets info out of Washington. if bobby mac cant ever get a hint of action, ek aint getting it. because nobody every gets McPhee's movements from the other team involved, you would have to conclude that is required to do business with McPhee.

Standard GM practice with an asset yould love to move

This.

And consider the source, Eklund?

Also the Richards to LAK deal. There was one other that I can't remember. About 3% accuracy.

He's probably got a connect or two in the Philly org. But outside that it's sounds like mostly hot air.
