Another signing that was broken by @NHLSourcessay today (Now made official on Sharks twitter)....people need to understand what rumors are....people expect every rumor to come true, its so sad.


Are you related to him or something you're taking this real personal. Any1 with any common sense can figure out this guys a bigger fraud than Eklund.

Well if he's really taking other peoples' reports and passing them off as his own AND blocking anybody who calls him on it as standard practice...

I think this was the last straw for a lot of people that were giving him the benefit of the doubt. He's getting torn apart on Twitter.

FYI - He also said Mitchell is close to signing, and Washington and San Jose are front runners. While that's not an outrageous claim, common sense will tell you that Vancouver has the advantage, all things being equal (salary, term, etc).

I think he's set himself up for another failure on this one.

He stole the Mitchell information from Murph. I've said all along this guys a joke and he showed that again today.

I wouldn't write off @nhlupdate as an invalid source.

He has been mentioned of breaking signings before, even by NHL.com. He also doesn't report rumours on that account, so if you
don't want any garbage and just want the news, then you can have it. @nhlrumor is an invalid source, but that doesn't mean @nhlupdate is invalid as well.
There is only proven news on that account. No reason it is not valid.

Just wanted to chime in.

Also, I would say another good valid account is Jay Gold, worth following for sure on twitter.

@NHLSourcesSay tweets that Ryan Malone does in fact have a no-trade clause...but Nick Kypreos, who he is following, beat him to it by 20 minutes. Lol, you guys were right, if you pay enough attention it's pretty obvious.

Just got word that the Kings are out of Mitchell sweeps, looks like the Capitals or Sharks...Canucks not out of it but its a long shot.

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?

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.;)

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.
