Eklund Drums Up the Rumor Wheel For St. Louis Blues

Eklund is known for being a source of information that is often incorrect.

Few fans of the NHL take anything he says to heart and have known for years that his assumptions and insight are often far off base.

Luckily for St. Louis Blues fans, Eklund has typically avoided talking about the team given their lack of a superstar, but not this year.

Also, the talk on the inside is The Blues trade of David Perron to Oilers for Magnus Paajarvi and a 2014 second-round draft pick may be only the beginning of what may be a few busy trade days…  I am hearing the Oilers aren’t done and neither are the Blues..  A source texted me “this trade is all about Ryan Miller.”   The funny part of that is I have been hearing the Oilers may be in on Ryan Miller now and of course the Blues have been long linked to Miller so I responded to my source, “which team wants Miller?”  To which he responded…”no comment.”  So…….we keep digging.

I doubt that the Blues are looking to acquire Ryan Miller as they have more than enough depth in net and are looking to make salary room for Alex Pietrangelo and Chris Stewart, but we will stay on top of this one in case anything else develops.

More as we have it.
