But I love the irony of them calling out Eklund the other day for making stuff up then posting this.
I think you're being a little harsh. All he said was that Buffalo and Boston had scouts at the WBS playoff games. It doesn't mean a trade is imminient. What it could mean is that Buffalo and Boston are looking at their competition and scouting for the future... If they know the Pens will have several puck-moving defensemen, Buffalo and Boston may design their defensive squad accordingly... or have a catalog of Goligoski's weaknesses in their back pocket ready to exploit.
Making the connection that Goligoski for Afinganov or Kessel was a thread strung by people on this board not by Buzz on the Turd.
If by people you mean me then you are correct, in my defense, Max A. to the Pens is something heard for seasons now, and Boston is, in fact, interested in moving Kessel. From those organizations and considering what the Pens have as needs, I put those 2 names out there. I also, before putting those names out there asked who people thought we could get for them.
From that point I remove myself from ALL responsibility for others input.
