Nash is very close to being traded to the #Flyers. The story involves SEVERAL big name players. Will have names tonight. NOT a done deal YET

Yeah it's kinda hard to make a call on the source. He says he worked for 4 NHL teams, but there's nothing to back that up. If you decide to remain anonymous, no one can verify your credentials really until you appear as a source on a legit media site, not just Twitter.

Posts like this: "For the #Flyers reporters/fans that follow me: Heard anything about Jeff Carter affair with Hartnell's wife?? #Rumor" leave me skeptical for sure.

I think for now I'd say no to using it as a source. Not until we have something to back it up as legitimate.

I'd known her for years. We used to go to all the police functions together. Ah, how I loved her, but she had her music. I think she had her music. She'd hang out with the Chicago Male Chorus and Symphony. I don't recall her playing an instrument or being able to carry a tune. Yet she was on the road 300 days of the year. In fact, I bought her a harp for Christmas. She asked me what it was.

@HockeyyInsiderr Should be removed from the list, he has got alot of things right, I could go through credentials if you want, but since I've been following he has broke pretty much everything before TSN.

Agreed, he nailed Prust to Montreal and Penner to LA, among a few others. And if what he says about Parise is true, I don't see why he should still be kept on the invalid list.

Not sure who's reporting...maybe @Eklund , but Brian Burke couldn't be more emphatic in saying Toronto is NOT in on Nash. As you were...


@Eklund. Sorry pal. Just talked to Dale Tallon and he says nothing has changed. Still talking with Van. Nothing imminent. High price.

Not to beat a dead horse but can we use this as proof to remove Eklund as a reliable source?

Umm.......Eklund is anonymous, and btw no one seems to know his sources, strange.

Also Eklund has been brutal these last couple weeks. Infact DD from TSN kinda makes fun of him on tsn.ca

More, and more I think someone from the moderators team has ties to Ek. The way some mods defend him is just insane.

The problem is you aren't addressing what I said in it's entirety.

"Yeah it's kinda hard to make a call on the source. He says he worked for 4 NHL teams, but there's nothing to back that up. If you decide to remain anonymous, no one can verify your credentials really until you appear as a source on a legit media site, not just Twitter."


Like it or not Eklund has appeared on Sportsnet and on other Sports Radio shows and is working with other legitimate hockey guys like Andy Strickland. Darren Dreger in the past has praised Eklund and now he's going the other direction.

No mod has any ties to anyone from the media as far as I know.

With social media sites it's very difficult to know if someone is legitimate unless they have some tie to a legitimate media outlet.

I'd have to agree, the fact that he's still on the list is absurd imo. He's called so many trades...

@ hockeyyinsiderr makes up too much bull at times
he's been calling Parise to Pittsburgh for days and days saying he's going to decide today, today, by tonight.
if he nails it, he'll go nuts and brags and say oh thanks to my followers for believing me.
if he doesn't, he'll ignore it.
Pittsburgh probably has the higher chance than Minny of landing ZP
Of course I can keep on saying the same
Russo just blasted him, if you guys follow him go check it out
& I might agree with Russo. where suter signs, Parise will then sign. Suter signs in Minny, Parise goes to Minny. Suter goes to Detroit, ZP Pittsburgh. ZP did say that he wants to play with Suter if possible, but I don't see it happening.

With Parise and Suter both going to the Wild and Hockeyy Insiderr incorrectly predicting that Suter would go to the Wings and Parise to the Pens, Hockeyy Insiderr deserves to remain on the list for now at least.

I don't even care if mainstream media acknoledges me when Parise announces #Pens signing tomorrow. The important thing is my followers know.

Eklund should be an invalid source.

So he reports that the Canucks are interested in Brule.

Then later.......

@News1130Sports
Johansson says the rumour that the #Canucks are interested in Brule - NOT TRUE!!!

Source: "Crosby is RAGING right now. Said he'll never talk to Parise again. Lied to him and to organization and broke promise." #Pens

The fact he's trying to explain means he's trying to cover his ass.
