An Honest Mistake

By George James Malik
—of Snapshots at MLive

It was one of those 5 AM, running-on-no-sleep entries, where you’re actually surprised that nobody’s signed Marian Hossa at 3:30, so you go poking around the far corners of the internet, essentially shaking the tree to see if there are any nuts left.

Afternoon Line

From Mike Chen’s Hockey Blog,

I’m reserving comments on the whole free-agent idiocy until the second day finishes so that we get the remaining chips (hopefully) off the table. So far, though, what a bunch of freakin’ morons (the GMs, not the players).

Busy Day in Hockey

From Paul Kukla at NHL.com,

While many of you will be sitting back and keeping tabs on all of the UFA movement, some of us will be hard at work.  How hard will we be working, well I went to Lyle Richardson, aka Spector and asked him what his UFA days will consist of.

How busy will you be Lyle?

The NHL’s unrestricted free agency period is one of the busiest times of year for me, topping even the NHL trade deadline for sheer volume of traffic. It’s the first two days that are the most hectic as that’s when the bidding for, and the signing of, the top UFA players is at its most frenzied. I’m almost a shut-in during those two days, rarely venturing outside my home as I track the rumors and signings.

Dumb Hockey Rumors

From Puck Daddy at Yahoo! Sports,

The last two weeks have seen rumors surface just about every day about every single free agent, just like they have at every trade deadline and summer free-agent frenzy in recent memory. Here are some of the best of the worst rumors we, as hockey fans, have had to digest and regurgitate over the last several years:

read the list for some entertainingly-bogus rumors

Incidentally, that list reminded me of that “Ryan Smyth signs with Edmonton” deal erroneously reported on Sportsnet in 2007.  Quite the screw-up that was, so here’s a flashback of the day from Chris Zelkovich in the Toronto Star:

Those Vague Sources

from Greg Wyshynski at Yahoo,

Why is it so easy for Kevin Schultz of FanHouse to acknowledge that Strickland’s report appeared on HockeyBuzz.com, where he is a compensated blogger, but not for the mainstream media?

Look, we don’t consider that Web site to be a source of anything but rampant egomania; but like I wrote last week, this trend in which the MSM either fails to source or vaguely sources news broken by blogs is unreasonable and unprofessional….

That said: Andy, Andy, Andy ... you actually wrote in the Bowman piece that, “Word is Bowman is expected to accept the job. This would be huge news!” Haven’t you learned anything from your boss Dwayne Klessel, the musician currently playing the role of “Eklund” on your site? Never make a declarative statement like that, or else you’ll end up reporting that Ryan Smyth re-signed with Edmonton moments before he’s actually traded to the Islanders.

You would think Dwayne, with a journalism degree from McGill University in Montreal (yes, he told me that himself during a conversation I had with him at the SCF) would know better than that!

Blaming Hockey Bloggers

From Tom Benjamin at Canucks Corner:

Iain McIntyre tries to explain why so many stories printed in the run up to the draft turned out to be so much crap. Among other explanations - like the unsurprising revelation that general managers lie - we get this:

[T]he [Ryan Malone trade] story got ahead of the facts. That happens frequently in the Age of the Blogger, who has chewed down the standards of journalism the way the pine beetle has decimated B.C. forests.

I was one of only a few hockey bloggers when I first started with this hobby and I can say without any equivocation that the standards of hockey journalism had been decimated long before anybody considered us to be part of a new age. Bloggers haven’t really changed anything.
