Because he's got a blog that said toronto at the draft will get Rick Nash, Joe Thorton, or Tavares. But those are his educated (Wild) guesse, but do you think that the leafs will actaully trade at the draft to get them?

big name FA or trade bait + big name market = lots of hits.



This formula's been in use for years.

basically this is what you need to know from eklund. you can even see the rumors he made about individual teams on the side. http://hockeybuzzhogwash.com/

Well just ask yourself what they could trade at the draft to get them. If their most valueable asset is Luke Schenn and he is a stay at home defenceman who may or may not turn out to be a full time top 4 defenceman and let's be honest is never going to be a number 1 guy, do you really think they can pull off a trade for a player who is going to be hyped as a superstar after the draft, a player who has won the Richard trophy or a centre who has put up the most points of any player since the lockout?

Eklund predicted that there'd be corn in my stool - and there was.

What's most amazing about that is I've eaten no corn in 32 years!

If Eklund says it, "the deal is 100% done and just has not been announced yet."

It depends on how he rates it. Usually his predictions are 'e' and some number. The number is the percentage chance that it will actually happen.

His method seems to be "If you're target is a barn door, eventually you'll hit"

Use words such as Probably/Likely and name several teams over the weeks when discussing potential trades.

Or, blatantly obvious. Vancouver looking at Sedins extension? No really, Kreskin? What bold prediction for end of next season, "Atlanta looking to either sign or trade Kovalchuk" and "Capitals trying to extend Backstrom"?

eklud doesnt predict. He just posts what he hears. Of course today was a speculative blog, but usually all he does is write wht he has been told by his sources

Usually people get prescribed medication so that they don't think they're being told things by their "sources."

That's Stefan's method too, but it hasn't worked out nearly as well

Eklund's source is very reliable - his dog goes at about 6:30AM every morning.

All he does is throw a bunch of crap on the wall and hopes that some of it sticks.

wow, that thing gave me about the only deal getting rid of arnason I wouldn't do

According to sources within the Colorado Avalanche organisation, the Calgary Flames are willing to part with LW Todd Bertuzzi to obtain the services of C Tyler Arnason. Remember, you heard it here first!
