Sundin To Ranger Rumor Full of Crap!


1) This rumor at first sounded like the bullshit that Eklund would formulate. What we found surprising to see was that it came from not a hockey blogger (who has no credibility) but from an actual professional hockey writer (with no credibility) Larry Brooks. Now, don't get us wrong, we love Larry. We believe he is a very entertaining hockey writer, but his record for these kinds of stories are no better than that idiot charlatan from Philly eklund.


2) What amazes us as much if not more is the fact that this story has ZERO merit based upon any available facts. The most important one being that it makes ZERO sense for the Rangers to sign Sundin at this time. Brooks as much as anyone should know the Ranger salary cap issues. Right now they are at about 54.70 mil. Giving them a tad more than 2 million in space available. If the other stupid Vancouver rumors have any validity, Mats is asking upwards of 10 mil for a year of his service. For the sake of this argument, lets say Mats was willing to come down from that to his 07-08 salary of 7 million to play in the Big Apple. It would still require Sather to trim 5 mil in payroll to get the big Swede signed.


3) According to Brooks the Rangers would almost certainly have to move defenseman Michal Rozsival, who re-signed on July 1 for $5M per for four years. That sounds fine until you realize that the Rangers have only 6 NHL caliber defensemen on the roster. (Rozival, Redden, Mara, Kalinin, Girardi, Staal) Can they afford to trade a top 4 defensemen?(Even if that were possible at this late date for that big a contract!) Its so far out of the question that we wonder why Larry felt the need to even write/mention this? We all know why, to sell papers. Its a reason/illustration why there is considerable blurring between bloggers and the mainstream press. Many times both have similar motivations (money or fame) and don't bother to check facts before they write.


4) So where will Matts end up? At this point we could give a rats ass. FR did their own post on that subject last month. http://newfaux.blogspot.com/2008/07/matts-playing-cat-and-mouse-with-nhl.html#links. A few weeks have past and still no word. He might still actually play in the NHL at some point. If we were to be forced to say where, we'd place our money on a team north of the border. Whether it be Montreal, Vancouver or back to Toronto. However we feel its quite safe to say he's not going to be skating on Broadway any time soon

Do you have schizophrenia or is someone impersonating you guys? Its weird to come here some times and read bizare responses that look like you wrote that disapear later on.

By the way I agree that Sundin should make a decision soon. I'd love for him to go to NY and force them to shake up their roster to fit him in. I just don't see it happening

1) Sorry to you and the other readers who are fairly new to our site. We have received several e-mails over the past few weeks asking the same question as you.
2) Regular/long time readers already know the story. Our blog was hacked/stole in February 2007. Since then that person has shadowed our blog using the old one and commenting on here, impersonating FR, and most recently FR2. Even going as far as slandering FR2. (Our attorneys are working on that)
3) We have resisted 'moderating' comments unless we plan to be away from a computer for any length of time. We regularly have folks delete the offending/imposter comments, but occasionally they are seen by readers who if they are new to our site may not realize its this sick individual who appears to have no life. Sorry again folks.

Wow way to go out on a limb there moron! Big way to step up!

You wait until Sundin's agent comes out and denies anything with the Rangers is close then you slam Ek for it. At least the guy puts stuff out there. He doesnt call his site a rumor site then do nothing but pick apart others words.

You are a lousy piece of shit wannabee that is bitter because some guy from Jersey created a blog idea and is making millions while you are stuck asking if people want to supersize their fries!

Fuckhead!

czechmate said...

EkIsGod - Are you retarded or something? In one breath, you post the link to the agent of Sundin being quoted as denying there was any truth to Eklund's rumour, then you say that Eklund's great for "putting stuff out there". It's called MAKING SHIT UP!!! You tool...

czechmate said...

oops, forgot to say that Sundin isn't actually SEEKING $10M per season... That's just what idiot Mike Gillis OFFERED him... What I've heard and read indicates his asking price is about the same as the $7M he made last season...

EkIsGod said...

At least Ek reports what he hears or makes up. This crappy piece of shit blog posts news stories that are a day old and trys to put it out there as their own idea!

And why you so concerned?

czechmate said...

Who is forcing you to read this? YOU! So why post your inane vitriol about someone offering their opinion on a news story that clearly debunks YOUR GOD EKLUND?

Unless you've been living under a rock or something, you should know that Eklund is not highly thought of among most hockey people in the blogosphere because he simply makes things up or posts things from TSN.

He doesn't even really offer an opinion. At least this site does...

Plus, it's way more enjoyable to read than Ek's broken up grammar and poor spelling.

Why am I so concerned? I'm not. I just don't believe in people bashing shit they went out of their way to read... Like YOU.

EkIsGod said...

"Bashing shit they went out of their way to read"

Isn't that exactly what this Fauxrumors post is doing regarding Eklund?

Ek at least will go out on a limb and risk being wrong.

czechmate said...

Not hard to be wrong when you make shit up... Gee, way to go out on a limb and charge idiots $20 for supposed INSIDER INFORMATION that is nothing more than imagination...

Seriously, bashing Eklund on a different site, and giving reasons WHY you're bashing stuff, is a lot different than trolling on the comments...

Anyway, I have no vested interest in debating with anyone who believes Ek Is God...

Cheers,
Have a nice day.

czechmate said...

...and, if you actually READ the story, he slams Larry freakin Brooks, by comparing his story about Sundin to something Eklund would write... If yer gonna bitch, at least know what you're bitching about...

EkIsGod said...

And hence bashing Ek in a round about way.

As for charging $20...take your own advice...don't like what it says, don't read it, don't pay your $20!

As for Ek's part...quite brilliant actually...he has thousands of people pay him $20 per year to get access to an advertising driven website. Double dipping on the revenues! That is why he is so hated in the blogospeher...because while all the other punk ass losers type out worthless dribble on their computers hoping to get a click or two on their site, Ek has mastered turning that useless dribble into big bucks!

czechmate said...

And you wonder why people don't like him... Funny how you skirt every direct argument I've put forth, and rather tried to justify Eklund's "quite brilliant" marketing scheme... If I didn't know better, I'd say you might be him in one of his MANY pathetic attempts at subverting other blogs, especially with his recent decline in web site hits.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not stupid enough to pay any money to read his site. I actually read it for two particular bloggers, not his own fabricated crap...

As for you, if you, to quote the immortally cheezy Extreme: "If you don't like... What you see here... GET THE FUNK OUT!!!"

Cau, I've gotten enough tunnel-carpal from talking with your airy self...

EkIsGod said...

Funny! Yea I am him (Ek) trying to subvert this irrelevant blog. Yea, this site has fewer hits in its entire lifetime then Ek's site receives in a day. I think if I was Ek and trying to subvert a site I might actually pick a busy one!

And if you made any intelligent arguements, I would surely comment back on them!

FAUX RUMORS said...

1) Thanks Czech for defending our blog from this moron. He's either:
a) Eklund- we doubt it
b) An Eklund apostle. From (brief) experience commenting on his site 2 years ago (before being banned for disagreeing with the host), we were regularly blasted with similar comments like this guy. Its as if we were bashing his religion. They are that fanatic and devoted to what FR2 calls a charlatan.
c) Our hacker/imposter: This is the most likely reality. This guy as you have seen has little else to do but harass this blog for God knows what reason, but increasingly we think his mental health is the issue. Sad actually.
