A swirl of rumors, fake tweets and re-tweets led to the only moment of excitement in Canucks land so far today when TSN’s Gord Miller (who quickly turned out not to be TSN’s Gord Miller) posted this: “Can confirm Florida has traded Reasoner to #Canucks for 3rd in 2011” . This was quickly re-tweeted by numerous people, including members of the NHL’s media, but which obviously proved not to be true. Sportnet’s Dan Murphy:
Don’t believe the Reasoner rumour. Plenty of fake twitter accounts out there. Haven’t heard anything from Rogers Arena yet.
And beat writer Matthew Sekeres would agree: “Canucks have NOT acquired Marty Reasoner for a 3rd rd pick. False report.”
As for any upcoming Reasoner/Canucks speculation, don’t get your hopes up.
