OK, seriously I just saw this on my facebook feed. This page is normally decent to watch and there is some decent fan interaction. But one of their admins is posting a story that Clarkson is signing in Toronto it's a done deal based off of some story Chris Nilan said on a MTL radio show yesterday because he's tight with Clarkson. Here is the link to their page to go look. https://www.facebook...Updates?fref=ts OK, my issue with this kind of stuff is the same as everyone elses. This will catch fire and then everyone will lose their minds and so on and so forth up to and including major networks saying Iginla is signed in Boston...oh wait no sorry our bad Pittsburgh. Honestly does this just cheese anyone else off? We all do it, we all get our hopes up but come on....anyone else ever experience this and just want to slap a person for doing it?

Warhippy's Prediction for 2015/2016

 

Dallas 7th in the west

Vancouver 11th.

 

It's harder to make a statement and stand by your words than it is to simply dismiss a statement and refuse to make a one of your own.

That's why it's called a rumour, teams talk all the time, just because they talk doesn't means its going to happen.

Meh, this time of year EVERY half decent UFA is rumored to going to Toronto.

Edit: It's just to boost listenership/readership. Link everyone to the biggest media market in the country

or lu to the nyi...now everyone has everyone coming back this way,,,,that rumor came about because bob mckenzie said if a deal could be struck, the nyi might be interested....that could be said about several teams....
if canucks could set up a good enough deal, they could get the staal brothers......someone reads that and it some how takes on a life of it's own.

Bob McKenzie is the most credible guy out there IMO.

Well, the first step about trying to keep rumours from spreading and getting out of hand is to not share them on a highly populated message board and draw more attention to them.

If this team lets go of Sang he will burn this team next year.
