Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Chris Zelkovich of the Toronto Star,
While TSN was reporting that Buffalo goaltender Martin Biron had been traded, the cast of dozens at Rogers Sportsnet were showing viewers live shots of some game-show eye candy getting their makeup, the Hanson brothers performing their 30-year-old shtick and the back of blogger Eklund’s head as he provided the first in a series of often obvious and even more often erroneous rumours….
In fact, the most entertaining part of Sportsnet’s ``deadline bash” wasn’t the balloons, the Hansons or the table hockey games. It was Eklund, who fell just short of naming every NHL player in trade rumours…
1:04 p.m. Eklund reports more rumours, this time citing ``really, really good sources.”
2:08 p.m. Eklund reports that Edmonton has signed Ryan Smyth to a long-term deal.
3 p.m. Eklund reports that L.A. has dealt Mattias Norstrom to Anaheim, ``but I may be wrong on that.” He was.
3:15 p.m. Eklund says rumour has Leafs trading Matt Stajan. They don’t.
more...The MSM is finally getting the picture that many of us have known all along…
