Hey CDC,

I feel like a newborn, not knowing what to expect. I've been reading posts on here for a very long time now. Why I never signed up is beyond me. Im also new to twitter. To be honest, the only reason Im on it is to find hockey players, hockey analysts, rumor-millers, etc. If you guys could post those who you follow I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks for your time and Im looking forward to some quality (and sometimes heated) conversation and opinion.

Cheers.

But seriously, no, don't follow those two as they aren't reliable at all (the first one is listed as an invalid source for rumours on here).

Well, I know that and you know that, but does the OP know that? It's CDC, prepare to be surprised.

And I'd blame you when the OP posts a rumour thread with @HockeyyInsiderr as the source. ;)

As annoying as hockeyinsiderr is he actually does get some stuff right. It's sounding more and more that Gomez will sign in San Jose. He called this right after Redden signed in St.Louis.

Yeah, cause no one else has ever been reporting that. Clearly he's the one that broke the news and he never picked it up as his own from someone else.

He's also been reporting the Canucks were front runners when we denied we were even looking at him, said the Ducks have increased their offer to Gomez and the Kings are VERY INTERESTED. I can't even find his tweet talking about the Sharks, but he did mention Calgary - is that what you meant?

The rumoured deal with San Jose is only around $700K if it goes through. So the Ducks increased it to, $700,001? And LA is ready with a bold move of $700,500?

He was the first person that I saw who reported it. Other people were saying other teams and SJ wasn't included. I know he isn't going to get everything right, but like Eklund they report everything they hear and lots of times they are going to be wrong. I wouldn't mind him if he wasn't such an annoying b*%^%.

Feel free to share when he reported it, with what he said and time and date. Just because he was the first person you saw do it, doesn't mean he was the first to report it.

Then there's all the other reports he made that I did see that have nothing to do with anything anyone more reputable has reported.

The problem I have with @HI, is he takes everything like it's his sources and no one else can obtain it when it's really just info he's pulling from other people's twitter, like local reporters and the like. He doesn't give credit and instead calls them anonymous sources.

#BREAKINGNEWS: Gomez in San Jose visiting #SJSharks facilities. 1 year deal could be announced today per prev #HIINFO https://t.co/Dg4r43wk

That was on Friday at 9:30am. Sure it's possible someone else reported first that I don't follow, but he was the first on my timeline to report.

Gotta give him credit where credit is due.

It says 12:47pm (PT) Jan 18 when I open the tweet. Then there was @fearthefin at 10:46am, @SJSharkNews at 11:24am, @JPMONEY82 at 12:21pm and @ForcaPorkChop at 12:07pm (all PT and on Jan 18). All just some random people and bloggers who follow hockey and have tweeted about it, but how about this:


Bruce Garrioch@SunGarrioch

11:37 AM - 18 Jan 13

Not sure how many teams are in on UFA Scott Gomez but Sharks have tendered an offer.


So a full hour before @HI. Where do you think @HI got the info from? One of his unnamed source he can't reveal for fear of their jobs? It's one thing to recognize @HI as an aggregator of other people's information, as well as someone who produces unfounded rumours to generate attention for his website, but to say people should give him credit for breaking anything is just wrong.


I'd be less offended if he gave credit to his 'sources' when he does get something right. Otherwise it'd be like me getting credit for breaking something if all I did was reword another person's tweet rather than just retweet it. I don't have any sources anyone else doesn't.


OP, sorry for the sidetrack, but I don't want you to think that someone like @HI is a valid source.
