Taking A Short Sabbatical.

I’ll be taking a few days off (April 5 to April 7), and will return with regular daily updates on Monday, April 8, 2013. I will be on Twitter occasionally (especially during Hockey Night in Canada on Saturday). In the meantime, I leave you with this study of the accuracy of NHL rumor sites, conducted by Stephen Stirling of the New Jersey Star-Ledger. Have a nice weekend, everyone. See you on Monday.


  1. Since there are no rumours we might as well make this a Leaf site today. lol

    All Leafs all day!!

    • How about talking about Lupul getting injured again.

      It seems like it is just part of how he plays. He saw he was going to get creamed by two Flyers but instead of pulling a Bozak/Kessel… sorry slip of the tongue I mean instead of turtling and coughing up the puck for fear of being hit he decided to sacrifice his body to try and make a pass out front.

      Now that’s the kind of leadership the Leafs need.

  2. Ya no. No leafs for 1 day. I doubt you guys could manage that.

    In other news (well not to some of us at least) good job on being such a reputable rumor site. Yours has been te only one that I’ve visited the last few years for this very reason, an now someone did the dirty work and showed it to anyone who will read it.

    Kudos Lyle, keep up the good work!

    • Oh and enjoy the time away!

  3. Thanks Lyle, enjoy your quick vacations from your blog.

    You do a great great job.

  4. Enjoy the time off!

  5. Thanks for the hard work Lyle. I really enjoy jumping on the site every morning regardless of whether I comment on or not. Enjoy your time off.

  6. Enjoy a well deserved break.

  7. Lyle,

    Sit back. Relax. Enjoy. You do good work.

  8. Lazy!

  9. The only reason I go to this page is because of Spector’s ability to make rational thoughts regarding trades and not the pin the puck on the donkey style that Eklund has.
    Well done and keep up the good work :)

    ps enjoy your break, I am going to have to find another site to keep me satiated in the mean time ~!

  10. Thank you very much for all the hard work you put in to give us updates on any trade rumors and you deserve a rest!

  11. Wow I didn’t even see all the drama from yesterday till today. Ha!

    Hey backchecking told you the penguins weren’t in trouble. You see fleury tonight? As I stated yesterday even the Blackhawks (6-1, and 6-5 losses back to back vs the oil and avs) did the same. Can’t wait for Crosby Martin and letang to get back. When healthy of course.

  12. Enjoy your break.

  13. Take an extra day or two. You’ve earned it!

  14. Thanks for the kind words, everyone! :)
