You all can blow up at me about this, but it's worth mentioning regardless of the reaction I get. Now we all have strong feelings about Eklund (personally, I haven't found him to be very accurate) but yesterday he mentioned the Wings would be more active than anticipated at the deadline and said he had a call with a Wings source later in the day. So, I followed up on that with a question about what he'd learned, today. He claims the following:
"Any Luongo trade will be passed by Detroit first" and that "they are the market makers now."
I know...I know...no link...but you can't link to the chat sessions over there and I was forced to just copy it down. Get fired up and angry if you wish but I'm just telling you what he said.
Whether it happens or whether it's even remotely likely, it's still fun to think about.
