Spector Breaks Down The Rumors

More than a few trade rumors floating around these days, maybe even more than usual for such an early stage of the season. Naturally, that has the trash-swilling rumor mongers (and the geniuses who pay to read them) firing on all cylinders. Thankfully, we have Spector at our disposal to separate the reasonable from the ludicrous. From his Prince of Pucks column on Fox,
The struggles of the Calgary Flames have caused the rebirth of an old rumor of Gagne being shipped to Calgary for Jarome Iginla, but such a move would make no sense for the Flames. They need a first-line center for Iginla's line, and swapping him for another winger does nothing to resolve the problem.
Much more from Spector. But before you go, speaking of rumor mongers, trash, and Eklund....a line you may have missed from the French-based article on hockey bloggers making its rounds today, courtesy of James Mirtle.
Richardson (Spector) devotes most of his blog to trade rumours. But the rumours he comments on are those that find their origin in newspapers and from specialized websites like tsn.ca — not those that emanate from oft-critiqued blogger eklund. "Anyone can hide behind anonymity and make allegations without base and without citing sources," Richardson says. " I think most hockey fans are smart enough to tell the charlatans from the legit sources.
