Lol he told her to print the article so other teams would try to "sway his mind" with money. Devils offered 10s of millions more than LA.

So full of herself, as if anyone reads her articles.    Let me get into the internet news business where I take a reality and exaggerate it.   

 

You see, Kovy left the NHL because he pulled a Pronger with this chick and his wife demanded he go back to Russia.

Not at all max, if you followed her you'd know why I trust her. You can't go by one article and say "Yes this person is credible", I know that. I've followed her for well over 3 years or so and she is correct on almost anything she says. She does not post anything, even on twitter, if she doesn't believe it. She says so in the article that it puts her own journalism on the line. 

 

I didn't post it to question her credibility or have yet another twitter discussion. She is a HUGE Jagr fan and reports for the local NHL teams. If she was saying something might be going bad because of what she just heard, I just wanted to throw it out there. That is...if that's what she meant by her post.

Yet one can say that if she was a reputable reporter, we wouldn't have to "guess" what she was meaning by her post.

There's no way this deal falls apart because of a leak.  I have read Lou used to nix trades and stuff back in the day because of a leak but that was before Twitter, it's near impossible even for Lou to keep things on lockdown forever.  Hell, Larry Brooks knew about the 100 million/lifetime deal a week plus before it actually came out and that didn't get pulled.

 

It does worry me a little Lou went out of his way to nix the speculation instead of just no commenting though.

You can say simple things that are obvious and be "credible".   I can go find my posts on HF and other places here that called the Kovy situation.   I didn't have a single damn source about it.

 

The problem with the "online sports media" is that the majority of it is so damn bad, that if you just go with simple/logical thing, you're "credible."

 

Frankly from glossing over her stuff, she sounds like a psycho, and her Kovy/Olympics/Nationalist article has errors all over the place.   If not errors, really bad editorializing.   The Olympics have been a fait accompli for months.

That's very true.  I hate these wanna-be insiders with their cryptic posts that can mean a thousand different things.  That Nick Barlotta guy does that too and he is coming across as a real schmuck.

Saying maybe also leaves a lot of wiggle room too.  Of course if the worst case does happen and she's right, she has a big scoop.  If the worst case doesn't happen, well she said maybe not definitely.

I will definitely agree with you on that 100%. She can be extremely freaky in some of the stuff she says. She has that either "medium" or "witchcraft" type of vibe to her.

Exactly, but Barlotta said the Brunner deal as "immenent."  I don't care who you are but I do not know a single person who would consider "immenent" as one week and counting.

It also seems a lot to me that once one "semi-reputable" online source even hints that Jagr is destined for New Jersey, a million morons behind keyboards are going to claim that their own sources have that too! E4! Jagr to devils! Oh I bet it's for one year! 1 year 3 millions! Because we haven't heard from Jagr it means it's definitely new jersey, because NO other teams want their secrets to stay away from the media!

Jagr very well may be headed to New Jersey, and I believe Lebrun. Past that, the other nonsense "reporters" with a business degree from a community college can spew their sh!t to someone else.

Will Lou let him wear #68?

 

Why wouldn't he?  He let Mogilny wear 89 and Gilmour 93.  Jagr's even a bigger star than those two, and Lou let those two guys keep their numbers because of their stature.

She also wasn't responding as in having a "scoop" so to speak. She was just responding to Zdenek directly, not to report something to the general public.

MIchelle Kenneth has been RT'ed by actual newspeople and she has been doing actual reporting on the local teams for years.  I'm not saying you should believe her but she isn't one of these guys that pop up as "Devilz_Insider_2themax" who is spouting off nonsense every other post that are obviously just making stuff up.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

No, but those are the kinds of "reporters" that make blah reporters "credible".    And honestly, if anyone came in here and posted "HOLD ON GUYS!  This isn't announced and it isn't registered and Lou was being Lou this morning".... would you call that reporting?

 

Actually, that's more in depth than her creepy mystery stuff.

With what we've come to know about the Russian merc this wouldn't surprise me either.  If it was such a fait accompli he was staying he wouldn't have squeezed us for a contract that cost us two picks and $3 million.

More or less reputable than Michael from NHLline.ca? He was quoted by some actual reporters too.
