      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors 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. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. 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
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Rumour] Eklund Speculates on a 'Major Deal' ...Canucks?

Recommended Posts

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?

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.

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.

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"!

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.
