Last week a Swedish newspaper reported that the Colorado Avalanche had signed hockey agitator Per Ledin to a one-year, one-way contract.  But, six days later, no North American news outlet has confirmed this report, and there has been no mention whatsoever of Ledin in the Denver Post, the Rocky Mountain News, nor the official Avalanche site.

Nothing.  Not a peep.

Call me crazy, but I'm starting to think that Sweden's April Fool's Day falls on June 12th.

Until I read or hear otherwise, I'm going to declare this report to be complete bunk.  As to how or why a news outlet would report something like this, I have no clue. Granted, I'm no expert on journalism standards in Europe, but this seems really strange.  I mean, we have entire cable news networks devoted to promoting false information, but you'd think those elitist Europeans---what with their universal health care and month-long vacations---would be above something like this...
