Eklund's (who's not the best source out there, but does get some of the Eastern deals right the past while) has posted 3 times about a 'massive/major' deal. See his latest quote:

"Also, regarding major rumored deal from before.. The deal involves a team out west and a team in the southeast..."

and

"A player once thought would NEVER be moved"

All 3 posts the past few days have been surrounding this claim. If all indications are right, rumors are the 'west' team is either San Jose or Vancouver and the Southeast team is TB or Washington, who are in need of some changes. Names in the mix are Luongo, Ballard, Kesler (VAN), Marleau, Niemi (SJ), Lecavalier, Connolly (TB), Green, and ...the 'Great 8' Ovechkin (WSH).

More details from Eklund to come as the trade deadline day looms...

I see about none of this happening.
But I would poop a lot if Lecavalier, Marleau, Green or Ovechkin were to end up here.

But that probably has more to do with the raisin bran and beans I eat than the trades that won't happen.

As HFBoard posters mention yesterday, It's Crosby for Bozak and a 2nd. There's only 3 NHL players with "worldwide" attention. Worldwide for Eklund could be anything, just Eklund pumping up the dead deadline as it and the NHL draft are suppose to be their "main" events.

I think this is nothing more than Eklund trying to create traffic for his site around the trade deadline. Who is going to visit a rumor site once the deadline passes?

Eklund seems to like to throw Vancouver into his "rumors" because the large number of canucks fans drive up his web hits so I wouldn't look into this too much

This week is Eklund's bread and butter to justify his existence for the rest of the year by pretending he has an inside scoop on things he can't possibly know about.

Don't visit his website. You'll be feeding the troll..

More fortune teller stuff. It's so vague that you could make it about anyone, and then when something happens that matches it he can say he was in the know.

At least some of his rumours have more substance than this one - I certainly won't get excited that we've acquired Bjugstad for Luongo or anything.

And who of those players was rumoured to "never be moved"? Kesler and Ovi maybe? Everyone else seems like they're fair game.

Actually, that wouldn't be the first time that has been suggested.

Maybe a St Louis, Thompson, Garon, Lee package for Lou ++?

Just to say there is any truth and reliability to this for the fun of it (which i highly doubt) 1. No chance it's with the Jets because they will be in our division next year with the re-alignment 2. Highly doubt its with the Panthers becasue well quit frankly we've made too many moves with them already. 3. Which leaves the Lightning, Canes, and Caps..2 of the 3 need a goalie long term...Canes need one now with Ward injury but wont move any major asset.

You cant deny he has some connections (albeit, to a much lessor extent than he makes himself to be)...he has been the first to announce in the past.

Eklund hasnt reported much of anything in months,so that last post was the last straw for me even entertaining his site.
SE is full of teams dumping players,so thats a easy cover. Saying its a Western team trading with them is even more easy to say since its obvious a Western team will make a trade with that division. I bet the next clue is going to be "Its the Panthers"!

Oh, if he puts something concrete out it's not so bad - certainly better than @HockeyyInsiderr. Eklund does put out some pure speculation just to drum up business as well though, which is what this appears to be.

I can actually.

When Eklund 'has been right in the past' he names exact players and teams a few hours before it is officially announced.

When he gives a line like the above he is fishing.
