"Marty Reasoner to Canucks" Mayhem

02/28/2011 at 4:48pm EST

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.

According to beat writer George Richards in Florida, a Reasoner trade is “100%” not happening.

Fake Twitter accounts… so annoying. But gotta love roller coaster ride of deadline day, right?

If you don’t laugh, you’ll just start beating your head against a wall…
