On an almost daily basis, the Rumor Rundown looks at the biggest rumors in the NHL. Gathering buzz from some of the media's most trusted sources, the idea behind the series of speculative posts is to take a closer look at what's floating around the rumor mill, often leaving critiques for such gossip out of the equation. In the Rumor Shootdown, we'll take a look at a handful of the reports posted in the rundown articles, dissect them and give our best assessments as to why they're not just unlikely, but so improbable, those rumors will potentially fade away in short order. In the first edition of the Rumor Shootdown, the focus is on two rumors that made the rounds on Monday.

First, he said, "When you hear whispers about dealing Jonathan Quick, tonight’s performance by Cal Petersen is Exhibit A." Then he added, "For those who think Jake Muzzin isn’t worth a significant return from a contending team, tonight’s performance is Exhibit B." Quick did not get the start for the Kings versus the Sabres on Tuesday and Petersen played well despite the loss. Meanwhile, Muzzin scored on a nice one-timer and played over 30 minutes upping his value...

History Shows Oilers Just Can't Draft Goaltenders

This article was originally posted in July, 2016. The Edmonton Oilers aren't good at drafting, shocking.
