      BOARD SPECIFIC RULES   02/05/2016

      These are board specific rules, meant to try to make the Trades and Free Agent Signings forum better for everyone. YOU MUST READ AND ABIDE BY THESE FORUM RULES.

      1. If an event happens, wait a few minutes before posting, in all likelihood, someone has already posted it. We don't want numerous threads on the same event, so please search before posting.

      2. Please provide a clearly identifiable topic title for your thread so that user's can search for and find the appropriate thread easily. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate. This is to help avoid duplicate threads and to make searching easier. For any and all comments, please use the Topic Description box instead of the title.

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriately label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].

      3. All trades, signings, rumours and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread.

      The following are NOT considered valid sources: Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Hockeybuzz, Spector's Hockey and The Fourth Period are currently acceptable sources.

      The NHL Line, Brochu is Hockey and NHL Hockey News by saint Pako are currently invalid sources.

      4. Clearly misrepresenting the contents of your thread or posting false Trades/Signings/Acquisitions to send the forum into a frenzy will be taken very seriously and will result in an automatic suspension.

      5. Please put all proposals into the proposals forum and NOT this forum. Proposals found in this forum will be moved or deleted without warning.

      6. Please report any threads or messages that violate these or other board rules to the administrators or moderators() Do not respond by posting spammy messages such as 'IBTL', and 'LOCK AND BAN', or by attacking other users. The report button is located to the bottom left of every post.

      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM one of the Moderators or Administrators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

Because they're as bad as Eklund. Has cdc banned Ek yet?

How come "NHLSourcesSay" is an Invalid Source.

It's been well documented in this thread.

Summarized version: Reposts other peoples things as his own. A user on here runs it; but accidentally proved it when he posted a tweet here.

Eklund should be nominated soon as being an invalid source.

He has sources, but his failure lately to call the numerous trades that took place these past few days indicates that he does not have enough sources to justify paying him money.

His rumors very rarely pan out. And unless he's purposefully avoiding the rumors that eventually lead to trades, he is not very reliable as a source whatsoever.

Yes he should. The Mods on cdc contradict themselves so badly when defending him too. The best 2 I've heard so far are:

1)He has well respected/connected writers on his site. Who? Andy Strikland, lol@him.

2)He is just reporting what he hears, don't you know what a rumour is? Oh o.k then why are any sites/writers banned mods? don't you know what a rumour is?

This video sums it up quite nicely.

NOTE: It has swearing.

I decided to change things up, I got rid of 'Valid Sources', and just going to stick with Invalid Sources from now on. The Valid Sources list seemed a tad unnecessary due to the Invalid Sources list.

Haha. Omg.

I don't understand the defenders of Eklund.

It's garbage.

Just because he CAN report some trades doesn't mean he's any good. People on these forums called Hamhuis being a Canuck, and turns out it was true.

Not to say that sources are easy to get, because they aren't.

It's just that the faster Eklund gets ruled out as a valid source, the sooner that this guy loses out on what was a niche market for him. This guy's a fraudster, making money from unsuspecting people.

You're right, he is a fraudster. But I don't think his customer's are "unsuspecting" anymore.

I think they enjoy paying the 20 dollars a year just to laugh at and make fun of him. well the majority of his customers anyhow. You should read some of the things on his message board, his fans/customers I think take great joy in teasing him. Yet here we sit and folks like KB3, StealthNuck and others continue to maintain he is a legit source.

Sometimes the mods on this site remind me of politicians with a hidden agenda.;)

Thanks for this thread.. some of these new thread creators should take a look at this before making new useless thread about what Eklund is saying.

Marek got ahead of himself there a few days ago tweeting about the White/Hansen "trade"

He's a pretty credible guy so no idea what he was doing going off of someone else's unsubstantiated rumour and throwing it back out there :rolleyes:

LOL.

It doesn't seem "unsubstantiated" at all.

There was a guy named "Dallas Dave", a guy that Opmac pointed out, that correctly predicted a trade before it happened, and he also was talking about White & Hansen.

Jeez I know you love Hansen to death, but you're gonna have to accept the fact that he was dangled in a trade. I don't get you - it's so easy for you to accept the Grabner trade, even the day when it happened, but it's so difficult for you to accept the Hansen trade.

I would be hard-pressed to accept both of those trades, since they've been on the Canucks property for so long.
