    Interesting nugget from Pierre Lebrun in the The Athletic today:

    We heard the same denials from Bergevin right around the same time as well....

    How is this a rumour? All LeBrun said is that Poile denied it. He didn't add any additional colour.

    :laugh: Obviously he's being shopped. If he wasn't being shopped Poile wouldn't deny it. o_O

    This isn't a rumor and the answer is pretty clear

    If Lebrun had to ask Poile, that means Lebrun heard something... therefore... he heard a... wait for it... rumor.

    I've spotted a trend wherein hockey "journalists" start with a header saying a certain player is on the block. The only information in their following body paragraph is that the player has never been mentioned by anybody, the GM is denying it, and it wouldn't make sense for anybody cap-wise.

    Except LeBrun's article about this subject, in the Athletic, possesses this title:

    "LeBrun: Predators GM David Poile makes it very clear P.K. Subban will not be traded"

    So....what's your point?

    I didn't read the article, or look at the title.

    And now you've discovered why some journalists are increasingly moving towards clickbait garbage :thumbu:

    Lebrun wouldn't casually mention this rumor unless he had good insider information. He works for TSN and they just don't throw rumors out there like Eklund does.

    Subban makes plenty of sense for a team that has a player (a W or a C) with a big money contract going to NSH.

    It's an old cliche, but "where there's smoke there's fire" always.

    Just TSN fishing for stories, leading up to July 1st.

    No hint of the Preds shopping Subban, Preds' own GM saying he's not shopping Subban.

    TSN: "Preds might move Subban?! Stay tuned, guys, and check out our trade board while you're at it!" :scared:

    :laugh:

    So now when a GM says he's not shopping someone it actually means he is?

    This is some next level chess that I have to wrap my head around.

    LeBrun worked for CBC, The Score, and Sportsnet in the span of about two years. Then he went to TSN. He's been everywhere. He's be of the best.
