      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors 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. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      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 items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. 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
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

I'm really getting tired of telling you to stop posting that source, you're really pushing my buttons here.

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.

That's going to be hard to prove against Eklund...

Just to put the final nail in the coffin, Bob McKenzie is calling out NHLSourcesSay on twitter as not being credible.

Is Vanstrom_BC a reliable source? he was the first to report the signing of alex sulzer

Absolutely NOT. Vanstrom is just some kid re-posting stuff he sees other people reporting. Plus, Canucks facebook page broke the news before he did

Vanstrom

Canucks announce the signing of defenseman Alexander Sulzer. Alex’s cousin, Christian Ehrhoff, had a hand in his decision. Ehrhoff only had good things to say about the organization, including “Alex won’t regret signing in Vancouver, it’s a classy organization."

Probably a fake account.

Probably a fake account.

He doesn't appear on the Globe & Mail's hockey twitter page or website, so I'd tend to agree. That information was just recently added to his account too.

Ehrhoff and Sulzer are cousins?

If he's really a Globe & Mail writer, why wouldn't he go buy his name?

How's HHR_Hockey an invalid source? He called the Bitz signing a week before. He also mentioned Propsal possibly signing in CBJ which was 10 days before, called the Conklin signing a few days before, The Wisnewski signing 3 days before, Bieksa signing 1 day before and the Ehrhoff signing as well. That seems like a legit source if you ask me. Oh and those were just some of them, I could probably find more but I'm not up for the effort.

I Agree. Can't call HHR an invalid source hes been the best this offseason rumor wise. Has hit on most of them
