    HockeyInsiders or Eklund alikes and their SOURCES !

    Thanks to this forum on warning me what a fraud "the HockeyInsider " is .  Now I just follow him/her on twitter to get laughs but never bring up any of the rumors this twit tweets.

    Look at this one and the LAKings answered back. Made me laugh.

    Wow, I love it.

    Does anyone still believe any info from these guys?

    If so, I would be happy to channel them with their dead relatives from the spirit world for $100 a session.

    Your grandmother loved....dooogggsss...no cats?  Yes, cats, that's what I'm getting.  She loved cats.  And the LA Kings are nearing a transaction of some sorts...a key move...it appears to be a player changing locations in some way...yeah...sign up to be an insider...

    The ones that are just teams make absolutely no sense to me.  At all.  #LA close to something big...  Yeah, the Pacific.  The Eklund-types that propose names get hits because it is (I imagine) the hockey version of watching "the bachelor" - e-harmony taken to a whole different level.  I can picture whitewings sitting there going "sacre bleu!  ze Shabs err geddig CorEE PerEE!  Zut!" and then coming to this board to gloat (incidentally, kudos to all for ignoring three separate threads that idiot tried to start after the Pens game...Kudos).

    They might be right, but that does not mean they have a reliable inside source.  

    As we get closer to the trade deadline, saying that team X is close to making a move is more likely to be right than wrong.  And you can take a look at standings and injuries to predict which 10 teams are most likely to make moves.  This has been Eklund's MO -- do a little research, take the opinions of team beat writers, make some slightly informed guesses, and call yourself an insider.

    Exactly,  this moron calling himself the "Insider" has about 20 tweets per day mentioning everyone and his grandmother . He's bound to get 1 out 500 and that's when we see the Tweet " Thanks to my source "

    oh and BTW the Habs have finalized a trade that we will hear about today.  75% done

    I forget the specifics because it was years ago, but I remember see a trade anounced by some local paper and then seeing that trade published as a 'rumor' on Eklund's page.  So it looked like he knew about it before it became official.

    I wonder if he still has his rating system of e4 and so on which rated how 'strong' the rumor was.

    I hear it's inching towards 80%...this week or next expect to see something done*.

    Hey, I work at T. Anthony on the weekends and some B's occasionally eat there, so I guess I'm an insider too. Byfuglien coming to the Bruins. I've heard from my source that the deal is 61-62% done.

    In 'fairness' to rumor mongers who has a friend of a friend or whoever or whatever, I would guess that some very high percentage of deals get a lot of talk and then fall through.

    That's just a guess as I said I imagine the GMs talk on a fairly regular basis.

    On second thought, cut back on that. I understand he needs to lose a few...

    Perhaps his sources also say the Leafs are looking to win more than they lose.

    I stumbled across this article during the lockout, where Eklund was getting some Twitter recognition from actual hockey reporters; Dreger, LeBrun and our own Haggs. 

    Author rightly pans those guys for doing so under the blind-squirrel finds nut banner.

    Bourque...so far.  Chara leads this team to another Cup and I might have to reconsider.

    Good point. However, Bourque never had the team Chara has to play with...

    Bourque had some great teams.  It just turns out that Gretzky/Messier/Lemieux had better ones.

    Yeah, with Colorado. The present Bruins team is much moredeep and  well rounded than any team Ray had in Boston. Just my opinion, though.
