GREAT tidbit of news that will make any Stars fan's day.




Ok so if any of you have read Eklund's trade rumors or anything he writes really you know that he is an idiot and a terrible reporter. The rumors he reports on are usually ridiculous trades that my 7 year old cousin would know not to make and he usually isn't even close in getting info on trades that do happen or that are probably going to happen. He has a ton of "sources" he quotes all the time but really he is extremely inaccurate and best for a good laugh if you're starving for hockey news/writing. 

ANYWAY he did have this one line in one of his recent blogs listing the top 5 UFAs this summer. Brad was number one, and after talking about the rumors and teams potentially interested, he said this( which by the way I do believe because it has nothing to do with an actual trade or sources telling him about deals that are about to happen): " but all indications are Richards loves the area and wants to remain a Star for life." 

This made my day. And do you think it's possible that Brad could go the Joe Thornton route and take a hometown discount at least for a couple years to stay with this team?
