I'm skeptical of players knowing about trades months before they're going to happen, so I'm skeptical about your Bourdon anecdote. Not saying I don't trust you, but I don't trust the information you got. And that's why I don't like trafficking in rumors.
Let's look at these tweets. The guy has information about contract negotiations involving two players who almost certainly have two different agents. So he can't be getting it from the agents, he'd have to be getting it from the team. When have we ever seen that?
caron: Sorry, you're right. The original is definitely legitimate, or at least we have reason to believe it. Those new ones, I don't think so.
get my point here. I dont believe those tweets either. but i love talking hockey and love talking about the what if, all these reports are doing to me (and others here based on other posts) is that they bring a subject, i see them all as "what if this would really happen, what would we think about that?), all of them.
Now i get that some people can't stand that cause all they want is legit facts to discuss about. But still like i said it's a message board and everyone has different opinion, values etc etc so you always have to put water in your wine. Not calling out everyone not doing it the way you want.
now of course that being said its everyone's right to tell others that they don't like it, but to do it in a superior cocky way calling out the poster as if he's a clueless idiot. Not a fan of that, especially if the poster was just throwing that out there to bring discussion. there's way to tell people stuff, some people here are missing that way of doing it big time.
i hope this sounds fair
