Sure we do.

My dog told me that the Flyers are going to trade Riley Cote for Carey Price. So now that's a rumor too, and about equally as credible as the garbage that Eklund posts.

Anyone can start a rumor, and if you're gonna start one as delusional as the one Eklund spit out, then you're gonna get ridiculed.

Kovalchuk would consider staying if the Devils would go out and get Semin to play with him.
So Kovalchuk would re-sign with the Devils if they acquired Semin, even if it meant Brodeur was leaving? WHAT?

Quote:
Semin is a great player, but the Caps are not opposed to moving him for Brodeur. Interestingly, the Caps signed him to a very short deal.
Oh, okay, they're not opposed to moving Semin for Brodeur. That's good to know. Because conventional wisdom says you'd never trade Semin to acquire Brodeur, but Eklund knows that the Caps aren't opposed to it.

The only movement being made is Eklund's bowels on his website.

I'm willing to bet Marty retires a Devil.

I love how no one in this thread is discussing the rumor, they are just calling eklund out.

I'd understand allowing Eklund rumors if they started discussions, but all it does it piss people off because they are so ridiculous an obviously baseless, seriously, it should be banned. How he has a prefix is beyond me.

If Brodeur is traded to the Caps, I'll buy a Brodeur jersey and walk to a game at the Verizon Center.

And I'm a Penguins fan.

Wasn't there an Eklund rumor generator somewhere? It was fun to play with you could make your own Eklund posts like:

Kings trade Drew Doughty for Thrashers 7th round pick

Coming from an NYR (read: anti-NJD) perspective, you forgot to mention one other minor detail:

Conventional wisdom says you'd never trade Brodeur to acquire Semin.

I dunno what's funnier. The rumor itself or the people that are getting so worked up over eklund.

I can't believe Eklund actually posted this. Out of all the things he's posted, this has to be one of the most hilarious 'rumours,' and outrageous ones.

Eklund is living the dream. He pretty much says whatever he wants and keeps making money with no negative consequences. He could post "marshmallows #1 cause of AIDS" and someone would still go "Jeez guys, he only claims to post rumors!"

Im gonna save the bashing cause its just too easy I thought a rumor was different then just pulling something out of thin air but here it goes...

Why would Brodeur leave the devils? For a cup? ********. The fans would be pissed and the orginization IMO would never trade him unless he requested one.

Why would the Caps trade Semin for a goalie who has seen MUCH better days? It doesnt make sense for either team. I just wasted 2 minutes of my life lol

Look, what none of us realize is that the key to victory is having a minimum of a half dozen LWs on a team.

The Pens fans that swore Jagr would never be a Cap are STILL making that long walk.

Right....so given that you know it's unlikely....

IE the term RUMOR:

1 : talk or opinion widely disseminated with no discernible source
2 : a statement or report current without known authority for its truth


Why does everyone get all bent out of shape about the guy? It's such a waste of time and energy. The guy is a rumor monger....he talks to people who may or may not have credible info and he reports them. Simple concept, he doesn't state things as fact, so everyone stop getting all riled up about it. He's here to stay, like it or not.

lol


You are clueless aren't you? Try reading a few posts and then tell me he is 'credible on this site'
