Sort of off topic, but with the off season for 28 teams in full swing (Congrats to the Pens and Wings on making it to the Finals), the rumor mill will be ramping up regarding everyone and everything but the kitchen sink for most every team. Well, at least that's the way Hockey Buzz works. Hockey Buzz Hogwash tracks the rumors being spread on Hockey Buzz. Think of it as a Rotten Tomatoes site specifically dedicated to hockey and Eklund... But instead of tracking opinions of films, it tracks accuracy of rumor mongering originating from Hockey Buzz.

For all of you Lightning forwards out there, be prepared to have a very scary +/- that’s more than likely leaning towards the heavily minus side this season.

Damian Cristordero is reporting that left wing Radek Smolenak, who played six games this season with the Bolts, has signed a contract with the Russian Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). Our Lined-Up Update has been updated to reflect this.

While the Tampa Bay Lightning's defense reeked this past season, depth at the center position is also a concern going towards the 2009 NHL off-season.

Spector: NHL Sunday Rumor Roundup - May 24, 2009

Here is some speculation that Los Angeles - and not Montréal - are the real front runners in the Lecavalier trade sweepstakes. Of course, it is Al Strachan making the report, so it should be taken with a grain of salt. Many thanks to Whale4ever at the Florida Panthers' SB Nation blog for the tip off.

A fashionable statement

All right, I admit it, I think they proved to be better than expected.  It's traditional!  It's new!  It's hip!  It was a pleasant change that beats the heck out of the same-old, same-old doggone...
