This website keeps track of all of Eklund's blunders. Good thing they just started in January, or else they'd have bandwidth issues.

So far out of 108 rumors only 8 were correct. :lol:

Not sure which is worse. EK's percentage, or the fact that someone actually wastes the time to make a site about it and update it regularly...

The Panthers are a team to look closely at right now. As a source told me yesterday at the game, “Jay Bouwmeester could EASILY be traded in the next two weeks to Ottawa, Minnesota or Pittsburgh.”

A wonder if his source was the Cotton Candy guy?

Rumor is Boumeester to PIT. A couple of other teams in there. Basically the site is an archive of Eklund's predictions since January 2008. It's fun to go through the older entries and take a look at all of the stuff that never came true.

@ Sam's Drunk Dog

And don't forget the 8 he "predicted" after they had already been in the media. :lol:

I'd be more interested in a website that tracks all of the trade ideas floated on this board.
However, hopefully no one has that kind of free time in their life.

How can the site label the newer posts as incorrect? it's not like the players mentioned have been moved to another team already?

Sour grapes....I am not a fan of Ek or anything. But I give him credit. He built himself up pretty good, and I assume has made a couple dollars in the process...

I enjoy merely reading rumors, whether that's hockey, baseball, checkers, you name it....

Where Ek loses me is with his damn E-rating crap, along with the fact that he continues to call himself anonymous, even though everyone who knows how to do the Google knows who the hell he is....

I think part of the problem is that some of what Eklund says holds no merit, and is just downright hilarious. As most have pointed out, why would the Pens move for another d-man in Boumeester? Granted, Jay would be an okay pick-up for the right price, but unless we somehow pull off an Eaton for Boumeester, then we're just adding to our defensive corps, which definitely doesn't need added to at this time.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy rumors too (E-5). When they don't come from Eklund.

Eklund is ridiculous a lot of the times. But I am curious to see what a good rumor percentage would be to you guys?

75, 50?

If one defines a rumor as accurate as the transaction actually being completed, a 25% rumor to transaction ratio would be incredible.

More importantly, I think it should be noted that an "accurate rumor" would be one in which Player A was actually talking to Team B regardless of whether the two actually agree to anything. However, this is impossible to validate after the fact.

I think its a waste of time. Not making up rumors would be preferable to me. I am annoyed by Eklund, but more annoyed by the people that justify his job by paying any attention to him(whether to criticize him or not).

Does Eklund include the Penguins in every trade rumor he peddles?
