This is a small sample size and Rodriguez offense is boosted by his high rate of scoring through 22 games - it's not sustainable and he likely won't stay in a top 6 role. There are players with great micro stats who are average players at best - for example Nick Leddy and Seth Jones. They are great passers and elite in transition but their overall impact isn't close to being elite.

random question: does anyone know how insiders get their info (or a rough idea, because im fairly sure no one here is elliotte friedman i think)? bc its very likely they dont talk to gms or anything asking "hey are you gonna trade this guy i need to send it on twitter"

Don’t think Toronto will move Topi; he’s got a lot of value and if he performs at the WJ (I assume he’s on their team) his stock will rise.

You’d probably have to offer cost controlled D and a top 6 winger + to make it worth it for them. Because he’s a solid D prospect. Which offering a cost controlled 3rd-4th D, top 6 winger ++ for a prospect is kinda ludicrous.


Lol, imagine leaving the guy who won best Dman of the tournament last year off the roster

Establishing relationships with people in the front office (scouts, executives, etc.). I don't imagine they reveal the info with nothing in return though, have to think insiders help out team personnel by reporting stuff that goes along with the teams agenda.

Relationships and trust.

Basically teams helping out good guys and building rapport with said teams by the insider.

So like Elliotte is tenured and seems like a great guy and so he only puts out info that’s given to him and likely won’t over step because he has such a high reputation.

So putting out; (just a random example, idk if Elliotte broke Debrusk, I think TSN did)
Debrusk wants a new team, helps the Bruins because it helps open the market - and also even fan reaction (hey DeBrusk is on the market, a ton of fans want my team (xyz, ex: Flames) to get Debrusk so maybe myself as a GM says hey I want Debrusk and so does my fans) and also puts out info like “these teams are reportedly interested” to further help the Bruins build the “bidding”. And even more; teams probably ask Elliotte who’s on the market so he’s like a broker and then the teams knows out there and gauge the market. That way they may know who’s a waste of time and who isn’t before even trying to build a trade. Elliotte has an inside scoop that Debrusk is on the block and may even let some teams know before he breaks it that way they get a head start.

Elliotte isn’t hurting the Flames, Nucks, blah blah whoever; because the Bruins gave him this info and who’s interested.

And in turn he does the same for every other team that feeds him info. The circle goes round.

Not a job you get into easily.

I honestly thought he would pull a Williams in which a competitive team would bring him in mid way through the season. Man thats sucks as last season he looked good then got hurt before the wings could get something for him at the deadline.

☝️Pretty much this

They establish relationships with executives, scouts, coaches, players, owners, agents, and NHL employees. In addition to this, also realize that executives, agents, players, etc. will use journalists to further their own agenda. True insiders are on good terms with people in management. They probably bend over backwards for these people so they can be on good enough terms to get the information first.

Not lost on me with all the goals tonight was Joey Anderson had a pretty good debut tonight. Tough on winning puck battles, skates hard and has had a few shots on net. He can absolutely hang in the NHL.
