Earlier this week, a rumor was circulated that Buffalo Sabres forward Jack Eichel planned to refuse a contract extension as long as head coach Dan Bylsma was still on board.
The rumor, of course, was quickly squashed by Eichel and his agent – but when the club went ahead and fired Bylsma (and general manager Tim Murray) just one day later, well… the internet couldn’t help themselves.

One of the best parts of Wikipedia is that, despite it generally serving as a valuable source of aggregated information, anyone in the world can edit a page. It doesn’t get taken down until a moderator finds the page and changes it back.
It took roughly 30 seconds for the mean moderators to restore this one, but the damage was done.
Rumors are just rumors… but we were all thinking it, right?
