BuzzOntheBurgh - Little Credibility

Postby EagleMorph on Sun Jul 01, 2007 11:55 pm

Folks, throughout the rest of the free agent period, please treat the Buzzontheburgh Blog as having only very marginal credibility.

I think it would keep everything less insane around here if we stick to the more credible sources at HockeysFuture, TSN, Sportsnet, and others.

No, the Pens deal was a done deal... except the St. Louis deal was... "Saved at the zero-hour by a koala-fish-mutant bird."

Name that quote. :)

I think "very marginal" is giving them way too much credit. :lol:

Little credibility? They have absolutely none. They've been wrong about everything, even embarrassingly so at times. They just make stuff up but people are dumb enough to continue going there.

I just hate dumping on another website. It's just become very apparent that this place will riot if posters accept everything from this particular one.

Is this JD's way of spitting water in the face of the Penguins?


If I see him again, I'll break his f-ing head open. :)

From the Buzz

12:05: Once the Blues missed out on Jason Blake, they came out of nowhere and pursued Paul Kariya to sign in St.Louis. The Penguins offer was substantially less than St.Louis. The Blues are believed to have offered Kariya a 3 yr deal worth over 5 million. The Penguins had a 3 - 12 million deal on the table. Vancouver was also a finalist.

Whats funny is Tkachuk said like at 1 oclock he was tryin to talk Kariya into signing with STL..Jason Blake wasnt off the market till 732..I love how they Came out of nowhere and swooped in and signed him away..Bottom line its all crap on that blog

EVERY rumor sight has no credibility. Seriously. Unless these guys have taps on the GM's phones or someone actually works in the office and is helping work on deals and then jumping on the web to "leak" the info... It's all 100% pure speculation and bull-poo. ALL...

Several other sites, especially the ones I mentioned, are far more accurate. Yes, rumors don't always come true, but the sites mentioned are pretty accurate.

Tribune Review reported this.

And wasn't BuzzOnTheBurgh just taking Eklund's rumors? I think it's either that or they had the same sources. Because Eklund also confirmed the Kariya rumors.

He was only covering Penguins' rumors. Maybe if he had been covering the whole league he would have gotten a few of them right.

It says in the Tribune Review that the Pens offered Kariya $4 million/year. So he wasn't wrong, really.

I don't trust the Trib, either.

They've been just as wrong over many things in the past.

Buzzontheburgh reported that the Pens signing Kariya was a lock, a done deal. You can't get much more wrong than that...

Rumors should be taken with a grain of salt no matter where they come from.

I think everyone just got spoiled when PSI turned out to be a reliable rumor site. It's obvious buzzontheburgh isn't.

PSI reported last year Pitt and Penn State were renewing their rivalry. They alsio switched back and forths between Pitt and Penn State over where McCoy was going to go.

That site is just as bad.


Well, I only go to them for Penguin rumors and they've been much more reliable than BOTB.
