I think the point of the article is that she was privy to all that information but didn't come out with it till now to prove her legitimacy. Like I said, I have followed her for years and I have no reason to disclaim anything she says. Just my opinion though.
I haven't been following her for more than a week or two so I could totally be wrong and jumping the gun with my (unfair) judgment of her as a writer. But you didn't get the vibe from that Kovalchuk story that it was 99% something any blogger could've written after the fact and not be proven wrong or discredited? Like storytelling after the fact?
I'm just leery of anyone on Twitter who's not part of the major TSN/ESPN networks (or TG). I'm even skeptical of Rich Chere, just to give you an idea. Her Kovalchuk story just didn't sit with me well and even after, I gave her a chance on Twitter and her tweets just come off as cryptic, self-important, and name-droppish. I know "it's just Twitter", like some of you have said, but at the end of the day, bloggers are trying to get a career in writing, something seemed off. Like this:
A blogger with only 2000 followers on Twitter does not have that kind of info (or the supposed background info with Kovalchuk) and not report it. 2000 is relatively nothing for someone that has this super major connection with Kovalchuk or Jagr's camp (or Shane Doan, as she tweeted recently).. That's just madness.
