Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Eklund

If you're a hockey fan and you have access to the internet, you no doubt know who I'm talking about. But how much do you actually know about Eklund? Greg Wyshynski over at the FanHouse has an intriguing profile of the controversial blogger.

Because as Eklund's popularity and influence have grown -- with surging Web traffic, high-profile radio gigs and an on-air role during an NHL trade deadline television special -- so have serious charges about a fraudulent biography, his lack of journalistic ethics and some online behavior that historically has gotten professional reporters fired. During our hour-long conversation, the "anonymous hockey blogger" finally began to answer to them -- with some startling revelations.

Read the whole thing here. You'll be glad you did.

Thanks, Tarik.

I got about half way through it and found it pretty interesting. Unfortunately, I am a hockey fan and it was a little long for my attention span.

A nobody who knows nothing and a Philly fan to boot? Shocker.

I hear that Eklund's info comes from a stolen blackberry that he found on a NY subway near the NHL offices. Unfortuantely, I found out about all of this the hard way as an unknown bystander to an NHL scandel worse than any NBA ref scandel. It all started with Eklund and Scott Niedermayer behind the dumpsters of the Anaheim Arena three hours before game two of the Stanley Cup Finlas . Scott Neidermayer has Eklund held at gunpoint. A car comes up over the hill and out runs Chris Pronger to see what is going on ... Scott is asking "what's on the blackberry, Dwayne?" and it being revealed to be an e-mail from Pronger's wife stating she really did like Edmonton. Scott goes ape**** and unloads six bullets into Dwayne's chest.

My question is did Dwayne have to die? On the security cameras at the parking lot if you listen carefully you can hear Giguere beep three times outside--is this a sign that they were succesful? I don't know ... maybe Dwayne just realized that nobody dies alone and he was ready to see what was next. ????? What was especially curious was that Dwayne's body didn't vanish like Yoda's or Obi Wan's after they died. I hope we get an explanation for this one day.

After all this happened Scott Niedermayer, Chris Pronger and Giguere decided that the contents of the blackberry were never to be seen. This way each paying hockeybuzz member would fill in the blank with their own ultimate rumor.
