It’s extremely mid-August for random Twitter accounts to pop up with supposed sourced reports of major transactions for your favourite hockey team.
A trade, contract extension, or an offer sheet — things that rarely happen this time of year but it makes perfect sense to just make something up and have the rest of the hockey world delve deep into what-ifs. “Per source” has become something that anyone can float around and it can get the public attention.
.@NYIslanders Per league source out of New York says the #Isles are getting ready to offer sheet @MapleLeafs RW Mitchell Marner. At 7 years/$91M….AAV of $13M. Marner camp wants to do a 5 year deal at $13M according to the league source. We shall see where this goes……..#NHL

Weeks since anyone has heard an update on where any restricted free agent is at for their new contract, Joshua Marshall, co-host of something called the Two Mutts Podcast, has decided to take it upon himself to give the information to the people.
Lou Lamoriello, the tightest-lipped GM in the history of the NHL, could surely just leak some of the biggest news this summer to “JMarshyBosco93” — totally believable.
