Well, when someone does the whole "I have a source" thing they create a reputation for themselves. If they are consistently accurate, then more power to them. Those that are spewing bullsh!t eventually stop or are driven out. I don't remember any of smelly's previous inside info (if any), but why not give him the benefit of the doubt for now and see what happens?

allright, good point, smelly, i wont question you for now, im just a skeptical person in general but lets just wait and see..

I don't have a problem with "I have a source stories". I wait and see if they come to pass. If they do that poster gets more credibility to me. If they don't, I tend to be more skeptical of any "insider" information from that poster. I do have a problem with stories that seem to be made up and not backed up with any information in the media. Of course, the made up stories by the media is a different matter entirely. :P

Alright you can take your bows smelly but no need to be snitty toward the skeptics, there've been a bunch of rumors posted here that either haven't come true (the Gomez being traded this offseason one still hasn't :P) or we'll never know the truth (the supposed Burns/Stevens feud last year) so you HAD to expect some cynicism, even though you yourself didn't post those. And I thought Brylin would resign anyway, plus I had a little more faith in your rumor when you explained that Lou usually was pretty forthcoming to valued season ticket holders.

Now that your rumor was correct, people will believe you the next time. And I'll pin your thread, even though the official press release is in the other thread.

Fair enough. I promise that there won't be a next time unless I get some more solid info . . .

Dunno if it was mentioned, but NHLPA.com shows Brylin making $2M in the first year of the contract.

This is how big your signature should be. Any larger and you are compensating.
