– Just wanted to point this out to all you hockey fans. Eklund, a supposed hockey genius, reports this: 6:08 p.m September 18 – “No Kessel deal with Toronto imminent”. Eklund then reports at 7:45 p.m September 18 – “TSN reporting Kessel to the Leafs”. What a champ. Keep an eye on your source, folks, make sure your sources are reliable and accurate.

If you have any doubts, you probably are, so save my delete key some wear-and-tear. In any event, check the FAQ before clicking send.
