Reports are he has signed with the Pens.


Totally unconfirmed. It was mentioned on Sirius-XM Radio's NHL Home Ice, and now everyone is going nuts. I have yet to see any reliable report, however.

Show me 1 valid source or it isn't true

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

After looking around online, it looks like this guy is the source: @ManicsFromGAF

Apparently, this guy with 72 followers actually broke the Suter/Parise news first. That's what I see over on HFB, anyhow.

Not to say that news of the sort won't be announced tomorrow, but that profile says it is in "NO WAY" associated with TSN. It's also retweeting a profile called NHL Gossip Report.

If Semin only signs for a year, then I really have to wonder what Holland's intention is with all this cap space. I have a feeling the answer is nothing.

Ok now we should have a fire sell. Get rid of everybody of value now.
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

A quick glance at the Twitter description would have indicated to you the validity of the source:

Right and if you follow the link provided in that tweet (http://t.co/DQgpzCPh), the heading of the article does say "Unconfirmed Report"

I'd like to see what your reaction would have been if you were here yesterday when somebody bumped the "Wings Sign Jason Williams" thread from 2009.

Don't worry about not getting Semin. We are getting Doan, Nash or Ryan.

Nash and Ryan are a pipedream.

Doan is possible, but come on, how much value can an aging vet add to a team of aging players?

I agree with youth, however Doan will be fairly inexpensive, short term deal and will have significant impact in work ethic department.

We should be getting this guy for a good deal because on his reputation but we'll end up giving him a contract based on potential.

Getting Doan will make our team better in countless different ways...
What's your suggestions then? There's not many options out there. Doan makes our team better immediately without giving up anything. Every team needs veterans, especially if your veterans are one of your most effective players. Doan is a no brainer. Loyal, hard working, team guy and has a lot of skill

Why do people still use unreliable twitter sources, if you want to use that crap follow well respected guys such as Lebrun, McKenzie, Dreger or Button.

To be honest, if we are talking about one year I'd rather have Doan the guy has heart, leadership and grit. I find it hard to believe, that people are still dreaming about Ryan or Nash, I don't want to lose Smith or Nyquist and you can bet these two will have to go the other way for either one ++++

That's arbitrary. What information have you to back this claim up?
