Fingers crossed...yet it is Eklund so who knows
its Eklund.. no "c"
I prefer to refer to him now as "Kevin" ...
If "Kevin" says it then I believe it. Kevin is GOD
thanks for the heads up oil
eklund uses a fischler 'source' to backup what his 'sources' say.
now, i'm thinkin two more weeks.
If Eklund's world was reality:
Well not that it means much because Wednesday has been reported as the possible day for about a month now because of the no-sports gap but having more and more avenues saying this is it can't be a bad thing. Everyone seems to be saying Wednesday now and it isn't just a 2 more weeks type thing. The NHL is getting into crunch time on being able to start on time. Camp has to open up in September and if the deal isn't ratified by the end of next week you are already going into August before you can start any action in terms of free agency.
Oh, my God... Eklund must be...
Little Orphan Annie!
This is what, the fourtieth time that Eklund has reported that the deal is done?
I hope Kevin is right.,
Exactly what popped into my head
big difference this time...The Maven is backing him up
I'm getting the feeling that they will sign the deal tomorrow. I have no sources
But it just seems like the media is anticipating something. On SportsnetNews, they said they will have the breaking news, when it comes, almost as if they are certain it will happen very soon. Also, with leaks of the rule changes, the USA Today ad, and Babcock's hiring, I'm getting the strongest sense something is up.
I don't like Eklund, but I pray that he's right, and hope they hold a presser tomorrow too (I hate this ratification talk that will delay the "official" announcement. My dream, ,however unlikely it is, is that they have managed to keep this all a secret, and present a fully ratified deal tomrrow)
I'm guessing we'll hear a Press Release by the NHL early in the morning (Wednesday morning) from the media outlets (TSN).
I'm deffinately considering making my own blog and only charging $5 to read it. Sources? None needed.
I'm in an overly optimistic mood. I bet they sign on the dotted line today!
This proves it! EKLUND IS A FRUAD...how do I know that?..well, there is a 100% chance of RAIN and Cloudy skies tomorrow!
A fruad? Egads!
My sources say no announcement today. And you all owe me ten dollars.
Just call me Churla.
Meet Bure's elbow
Shane Churla is Eklund!
I was going to get him back, but I didn't want his, er, "connections" after me.
you know all the followers are going to say this is proof that he has inside knowledge when its finally done.
Well the more he reports the better his chance are of getting it right...
Ok.. today we have a deal...
how about today?
I thought his source was NHL 2005
