A special Friday afternoon edition of TheThirdManIn~Radio today. Dieter Kurtenbach joins me to break down the Jack Skille-Michael Frolik trade piece by piece. We also have a long discussion and share our take on the process of how trade rumors take a life of their own, the true villains in the process and the relationship between main stream or professional reporters, amateurs, hobbyists, pretenders and the general audience. That and so much more.
