How Hockey Rumor Misinformation Spreads

From James Duthie in yesterday’s post at The Good, The Bad and The Duthie:

At this time of year, the population of hockey “Insiders” explodes like rabbits on Cialis. 

Whenever trade deadline approaches, we suddenly become a nation of Bob McKenzie wannabes.  It’s like the old Flintstones episode when Fred gets cloned by aliens, and there are thousands of Freds running around Bedrock, robotically chanting, “Yabba…Dabba…Doo.”  Except here, they’re Bobs, not Freds, and it’s: “Yabba…Dabba…Deal.”

Every blogger living in his parents’ basement apparently knows exactly where Chris Pronger is going, and who is coming back the other way.  He knows this because this dude in his Psych class told him.  And the dude in his Psych class knows this because his roommate once dated this girl who moved to California and works at a Hooters near Anaheim, where the Ducks equipment manager’s cousin was having wings and beer last Tuesday, and told her the Pronger deal was done.  So she Twittered it.
