Make up your own NHL trade rumours

I touched upon this last week, but trade rumours should be left to the professionals.

And they don’t come any more unprofessional than Eklund.

The guy makes up NHL trade rumours left and right (he’s almost as bad as Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun).

It’s to the point that he could have a serious, plausible trade, and no one would believe him.

But there’s a great web site out there where you can be Eklund. It’s found here and is a great laugh.

Here are some example of trades:

“According to sources within the Boston Bruins organisation, the Toronto Maple Leafs are willing to part with LW Alexei Ponikarovsky, a 3rd round pick and D Tomas Kaberle to obtain the services of C Patrice Bergeron.”

“According to sources within the Minnesota Wild organisation, the Edmonton Oilers are willing to part with D Sheldon Souray, RW Ales Hemsky to obtain the services of C Mikko Koivu.”

“According to sources within the Detroit Red Wings organisation, the Tampa Bay Lightning are willing to part with C Vincent Lecavalier to obtain the services of C Henrik Zetterberg.”

“According to sources within the Calgary Flames organisation, the New York Islanders are willing to part with C Andy Hilbert and C Doug Weight to obtain the services of G Mikka Kiprusoff.”

“According to sources within the San Jose Sharks organisation, the New York Islanders are willing to part with G Rick DiPietro, C Doug Weight and RW Trent Hunter to obtain the services of C Joe Thornton.”

You get the idea. The players haven’t been updated, so you get some out of date “possible” trades, but it’s still a good laugh.
