I would like to see a "Eklund" only rumours thread though if no ban.

But realisticly, I doubt he will ever have a spot on the unvalid sources list.

I propose that if you don't want to read something, don't.
Well to be honest I had to read your post first to see that it had no point.

Seriously? You post this in Canucks Talk? Your thread is more useless than the rumour threads (which are created in the Trades, Rumours and Signings forum, where this would be if it wasn't a bad idea in the first place). The mods have said it's alright, you can see for yourself in the invalid sources thread (again if you look in the right forum). Just don't read them if you don't want to.
I propose that all CDCer's forgo using Hockey Buzz as reference material for posts. Especially any post by Elkhound.
Who's with me?
From the Invalid sources thread, the second post in explains why Eklund is currently allowed:
We consider Hockeybuzz.com as a valid source, as Eklund has some credible writers on his site. These threads pop up every year, and they usually end in the same fashion.
Here is what Templeton Peck recently posted:
I'll try and answer as many of the questions regarding this as I can.
Eklund is consistently wrong...
I don't have the numbers on this, but I don't doubt your right.
I think people get confused by what "rumours" really are and what they aren't. Taking any rumour as being a 100% guarantee to happen is a mistake and I think where many people get confused. For the amount of talking that goes on between NHL clubs, I'd wager most doesn't materialize into anything.
So what's the point of having rumours posted here at all then, you might ask? It's something to start a legitimate conversation over, to speculate over and on occasion they may just happen. You just have to take it all in with a grain of salt.
everyone on here is sick and tired of reading an intriguing title only to go into the thread and see the source as Eklund.
It's simply not true. People in this thread have already posted that they don't mind it. People continue to post and view these threads on a consistent basis.
Those who are, however, can usually avoid those threads as they are often easily identified. Avoiding rumour threads altogether is the best approach to take at the moment.
And to my knowledge isn't using Eklund as a source against the forum rules anyway? Why isn't it enforced?
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.
The guy is a fraud and his sources are about as reliable as a drunk surgeon. And everyone KNOWS it.
If he was truly a fraud, it's unlikely Sportsnet would have hired him, Darren Dreger would give him props for reporting something first, or any sports radio show would have him on as a guest. It's also unlikely that the other reporters at Hockeybuzz, such as Andy Strickland would be working with him.
Yet for some reason, every day, new Eklund threads pop up and they seem to always run into 15+ pages of "omg another Eklund thread"
The users with something negative to say are usually the most vocal.
I do agree with everyone in this thread that the repetitive posts that add nothing to the discussion need to be eliminated. I've been trying to crack down on the users trolling these threads as best I can. If you see someone causing a problem, please report them to us.
In the end, You dislike reading Eklund posts as much as I dislike people creating stupid threads, yet at least most people are kind enough to label their rumour threads [EKLUND] and put them in the right forum. I might not like Eklund, but I do like the discussion that often comes up from those threads.

If you're not enjoying a thread LEAVE IT and go read another one.
