Great job bieksa3-, I always wanted a thread for reliable and not reliable NHL sources. I'll try to find some more reliable sources If I can so you could add them up.

List sucks, Eklund is a fraud. Sportsnet hiring him just means Sportsnet is retarded.

Andy Strickland is a reputable beat writer who writes for Hockeybuzz, but outside of Strickland there's nothing of value on that site.

No matter how badly you try to justify it, having Eklund as a valid source on CDC is a complete joke and makes this board look terrible. As of right now he says the Canucks are trying to get Marc Savard and Steven Weiss. Why the hell would we want either one of them when Hank and Kesler are both locked up long term? This is just one of the many ridiculous and fabricated "rumours" that Eklund makes up in his little fantasy land. The same land that you are condoning as a "valid source" basically because he has his own website (GIMME A BREAK!)

Did you not read any of the justifications for why Eklund is still considered a valid source? It's very well explained and outlined in the OP.

"fabricated rumours" Eklund's already admitted that he doesn't have any sort of filter, he just gets told stuff and passes everything along, this is why we get a bunch of crazy sounding ideas, I have no doubt that Vancouver briefly enquired about Savard and Weiss, NHL clubs talk all the time and 99% of it comes to nothing,

So, what you're saying is, that allowing Eklund rumours will somehow tarnish the reputation of this world-class institution known as CDC?

Go spend a few minutes in Canucks Talk. You'll quickly realize that the standards are already pretty low and there's nothing to defend.

Besides, why get so upset when you can easily avoid Eklund threads? I'm not a fan of Eklund rumours either, but unlike you, I just avoid them, instead of spending my Saturday night whining about it on CDC.

What about quoting other forum posters, who have a reputation for being credible? For example, (she's on another message board, but we all know topics get around), Hockey Widow is a poster who has had insider connections within the Canucks organization and has posted information (not always trade or signing information though) about the team. Would she be considered a credible source for discussion? I'm sure there are others too...

I believe that rumours from other sources should be allowed to be posted as long as i says in the title *invalid source*. Some of the nhlsourcesay rumours can be interesting. This way people who don't want to read their rumours don't have to as they can see it is an invalid source. In the sumer months this gives people something to talk about.

Thank you Brunners, you actually read the post. It's not like we just made that post a few days ago, that post has been used for a few years. So you think some people would be used to it now. frantics.gif
