Can we either close this or delete it until something official shows up? Otherwise it smacks of rumor-mongering and wild claims.

you guys can delete it if you like, just start another thread when it's on tsn or something but I just don't understand what the big hard on for an "actual link" is sometimes.


Don't you want to also get news before it hits the internet websites?

You know, in the real world sometimes things happen before it hits the web.

read the rules for the board
a rumor without a link isn't allowed
neither is a "transaction" without a link
*shrugs*
could be true, maybe not
like I said, I'll believe when I see it on TSN or something

True, sometime news does happen before it hits the Web, but if your going to state something as a fact you should have proof to back it up or just wait instead of being an attention ***** who just wants credit for breaking news.

Obviously you haven't been here long enough, or read the rules.

Some guy with ZERO credibility (19 BS posts) posted this rumor over on letsgokings.com and that is how all this started.

Well, the Kings could definitely use a center. And the Caps are trying to cut costs and lack depth at "Convict".

I have no problems with rumours being posted without a link - whatever the rules may state - but it should be written clearly in the post that it is a rumour - or that a deal was completed according to a listed source - (whether that's a radio station or local paper or whatever) and the link will be coming soon.

but there are way too many posts like this that end up not being true and probably why the strict rules on having to post a link.

Can we come up with a different word or phrase that's between "Proposals" and "Rumors (substantiated)" - like "Unsubstantiated Rumor" or something better than that?

I understand and agree with the rule about the link. It's necessary. But I'd like to hear what "a friend of the sister of the mistress of the GM's dog" has to say sometimes - it's fun. And I understand that poster not wanting to write it up as a proposal, because it isn't. That and the poster wants to inform in this case, not hear other people's alterations on his of her originally posted deal. I mean if someone posted the Pavel Bure trade from FLA to NYR accurately an hour or two before it was announced, they would've got flamed: "No deal's happening that doesn't include York!" And that's not even what the poster was getting at.

So, yes the rules are good, but there should be an added contingency for this scenario.

Adityase,

The only reason why I put 'rumour' there is because I've heard it as well. It's been bandied around on a few messageboards to boot. It sounds like it's a legitimate rumour. If it's a legitimate trade, that is to be seen. But this is a 'Trade *RUMOURS*' board.

Maybe "link or source" should be defined more clearly.Is Spectors a viable link or source.There are credible links and links that lack any reliability whatsoever.Ive seen links to sites and sources that seem much less credible than your average HF poster but because its on another site or the source isn't someone that posts here it instantly becomes credible!.It seems like every two-bit reporter is considered a viable link or source when most of them are in no more loops than the majority of us.

I'm not saying we shouldn't have any rules but maybe the rules need to be more clearly defined.

The rumour came from a radio station in LA, apperantly.

The Kings organization has denied this trade is in the works, but then again, it's not like they'd say 'Yes!'.

The rumour is: Joe Corvo + 3rd round pick for Robert Lang.

We'll see what happens today.

EDIT: Other news: Dave Taylor is in Europe, and Mike Cammelleri was sent down today (he is a centre/winger).

Perhaps a trade rumors board with source rules,
and a separate trade IDEAS board, which is what this board essentially is.

If it's a rumor, then you put "rumor" in the title, and give your source in the post. If it's an idea, you put "proposal" in the title. Not very hard to follow.
