Regarding the Filppula for Yandle rumor

Posted By Chris Neubacher On Jul 31 2012 @ 5:19 am In Detroit Red Wings | No Comments

HockeyInsiderr (Yes, I spelled that right) [1] is back at it again with another crazy rumor that he claims to be true. According to multiple tweets by him, the Red Wings have a deal on the table with the Phoenix Coyotes regarding defenseman Keith Yandle.

According to his tweets, the deal would send Filppula + Nyquist + 2013 first round draft pick to Phoenix in exchange for Keith Yandle.

When I heard about this I laughed. I mean that is the most crazy offer ever to get Yandle. I wouldn’t even trade Filppula straight up for Yandle and throwing in Nyquist and a first is just ridiculous. Doing that trade would give Detroit one of the worst forward cores in the league while our defense would marginally improve. Which is not worth it.

Obviously this rumor isn’t true and you shouldn’t believe a word that HockeyInsiderr says. [2] He is a fraud and shouldn’t be given any credit.

Malik made a good post regarding HockeyInsiderr and the Yandle situation.  [3]

Even CBS has made their opinion about HockeyInsiderr known [4].

Honestly, this guy just has to stop.


My message to HockeyInsiderr


In other news, head over to Wingingitinmotow [6]n and check out their post about if their was the ability to dump one contract in the new CBA who should the Wings cut if they even use it at all.

I put Todd Bertuzzi as I believe that his two-year extension was useless, however,  I do see why people have good cases for Cleary and Franzen.
