2 cents time.

 

I just read her Kovy retirement article. The entire thing stinks of her justifying her special relationship with Kovy.

It's not very factual, uses general references, and reads like a fictional story.

 

one of the comments describes it perfectly. needed more facts, could of been written shorter, and really was a waste of a read.

 

i still refuse to take any rumor or otherwise seriously until it either comes from TG, the Devils, or Bob McKenzie, and they're not repeating other bull**** rumors.

When did I say that, I said she pumps up her importance.   Which increases her "credibility".

 

What credible writer puts this sh!t out on their twitter.

 

 

 

 

And no, I doubt management knows who she is. The gameday staff does. You think Lou knows or gives two that Kovy was "talking" to an internet reporter? She's a writer at a site where half the articles don't even have a single comment on them.

 

This comment you quote...

 

 

 

 Michelle Kenneth ‏@MichelleKenneth

I am so furious at JJ right now...please...no, please...sign somewhere else. Let us hear who you're really signing with.

 

Comes from A) whatever it is she may have "Heard" and B) The fact that since these rumors started weeks ago she's been saying she doesn't want Jagr signing with the Devils as a "FAN OF HIS" nothing to do with journalism or reporting for the Devils themselves. You would know this if you would do what I said and go back a few years. She is very candid on twitter which I respect. Just because she speaks her mind on her own account makes her less credible? It's her twitter account...you're supposed to be able to speak your mind on twitter without people accusing you of being less of a person or less of who you are professionally. Her twitter account isn't "MichelleKennethProfessionalWriterForBlahBlahBlah" Its her PERSONAL account. Just sayin'

 

You think Lou doesn't know who TG is then either huh?

TG is a PROFESSIONAL writer assigned to the team by a PROFESSIONAL news organization.   Not an internet blogger.    That's the crux of this.   The lines get blurred too much.   No one is saying you can't take her 100% seriously, but you shouldn't be surprised when other people don't.    Is the fat guy from the Poitin Still a member of the media now because he has a youtube video?

Who is saying you need to take her 100% seriously?  But it seems to point out she actually has press credentials and player access, which is true, somehow needs to be rebutted because she's creepy.

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.

If she has player access and is getting on the record quotes, does she have attributed quotes?   Because the Kovy story was sort of a cross between a fanfic love letter and inaccurate info about the Sochi Olympic negotiations between the NHL and the IIHF and the status of the buildings on the Olympic site, when they have already had a tournament at the Ice Hockey venue MONTHS ago

She was also posting something that she had writing up a long time ago, at least that's the way I read it. I'll have to reread the article, I may be mistaken.

Ya, I've seen quotes she's gotten on twitter after press scrums that others then RT'ed.  I don't follow her on twitter because I don't consider her worth following or interesting.

I feel pretty good about this happening since Pierre LeBrun reported it and said nothing would be official until tomorrow. Lou denying/deflecting it seems normal.

Agreed, which also means he's trying to work on other things. No other reason they would delay the official announcement.

Yup I'm pretty excited for tomorrow in part because of Jagr and in part because I'm hoping for another surprise

If they signed Jagr 'and' Brunner they'd have to get rid of THREE forwards on one-ways, or two and Gionta.  I mean a lot of guys are expendable but still you have the 50-contract limit to worry about too, and what if teams don't want to take our garbage spare forwards?  Can't hide them all in Albany.

So some crazy blogger chick who thinks she has a relationship with Kovalchuk is a valid source? She said that he would sign with the Devils initially. No sh!t, there were two suitors and Lombardi was going cheap. The writing on the wall that it would be LA/NJ in the winter, you could go on capgeek and figure that out.

Honestly she reads like the social media version of Elias' stalker. And her Olympic article is all over the place and wrong. The hockey building is done and has been done, they played the WJC at it. And the NHL wasn't dragging their feet because of "shoddy" buildings, the Olympics has been accounted for in the schedule for months. Why does she think the outdoor games are framed around the Olympics? Total happenstance?


Agree 100%, there's no reason for us to believe her story, much of it can't be proven after the fact. Her story came off a bit creepy and we should take it with a grain of salt. How is she so "tuned in"? If this Jagr deal falls through, I'll instantly take this all back though.

Why?  It's not that she's incorrect.   It's not announced and it hasn't been posted.   It's not done until it's done.   It's the way she does it, puffing up her importance and dropping that stupid "they didn't like me talking to Kovy when they found out", as if that is at all relevant to the discussion.   She's just putting herself over.

Says who though? Says her.

By "story", I meant the Kovy story, not this Jagr rumor no one else is mentioning.

Well, I mean, then we're getting pretty philosophical, do you even know the game on your TV is truly happening or is it all an elaborate fake out to make you think it's being played? :lol:

Either she has press credentials or she's been able to fake it for years and even get credible guys at hockey events to claim she's there when she isn't.

 

I'm kind of amazed Nick Barlotta got defended by some when he has no credibility but she is getting hammered when she at least has some history with tri-state hockey. :lol:
