Leak Source Within Dallas Stars Organization Revealed!

via cdn.picapp.com

Would you like to know the difference between the traditional, mainstream media and the fetid underworld of the internet when it comes to trade rumors? 

There is none.

Since Sheldon Souray agreed to waive his no-trade clause, there's been a running debate about his approved destinations.  As regular readers know, I'm a big fan of a Dallas swap.  Apparently, my unabashed hope for a trade between the Oilers and Stars has turned into actual interest by the Stars organization in Sheldon Souray.

"The other possible destination for Studley Wonderbomb is Dallas."

"I've lobbied for a Souray to Dallas trade twice before and I still believe that the Stars are the Oilers best trading partner at the deadline."

--Derek Zona, The Copper & Blue, Jan 22, 2010 2:00 PM EST

 

"The Stars are in desperate need of one more big defensemen and a goaltender; the supposed departure of Marty Turco will help free up finances as well.

If the Stars do indeed make some big trades at the deadline, including one that sends Turco elsewhere, the likelihood of a trade for a player of Souray's caliber increases."

--Brandon Worley, Defending Big D, Jan 23, 2010 3:40 PM EST

 

"The Dallas Stars are rumoured to be interested in Souray's services."

--Derek Van Diest, The Calgary Sun, January 25th, 2010 3:20 AM MST

 

One reason the Stars might want to deal 2005 first-round defenceman Matt Niskanen?

--Jim Matheson, The Edmonton Journal, January 24, 2010

 

"Dallas is a lot closer than anything out east. In all reality, there is only a handful of teams he would accept a trade."

--Hendricks Hockey's Rumors, January 25th, 2010

 

So, whether it's some guy making up trades on a blog, or established mainstream writers, walking into the world of hockey trade rumors usually requires some hip waders.
