I think he means because the names were leaked by our management as opposed to wild press speculation

Negatory. This has already been confirmed for me as I looked to the actual source. Just waiting for you guys to catch up.

Recchi on fire with 4 points tonight for Boston. If Thomas can hold up, that's a cup team up there.

So you are saying what? That they went on to some third-party website and blindly pulled the status from there instead of relying on the team's word? It would seem to be that the team would be the...

I don't have anything against the beat writers, really. They get the info from the team and run with it, because it's the best source they have.

The problem is, all the sources you cite are...

There is one original source, and that source is the CBA. How much more authoritative can you get? DC didn't read it, and is simply parroting what he's been told (he also said via email that the...

You may be right that he wasn't pursued hard enough. Even if he was, though, it may have still benefited him to head to Russia. If he's making ~900k in the NHL (and that is a big assumption with...

If you have an RFA and you want him back, you got him. He can't just bolt for another team. Any UFA can. That simple.

Whether you agree or not, the point is that the beat writers (at least...

RFAs always easier to sign than UFAs. Eminger was more expensive, not harder to sign. None of that takes into account that they were incorrect about his status.

Because the beat writers get their info from the team. For example, for the blog post that started this thread, do you think DC went back and read the CBA? He didn't.
