      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

How is Eklund a valid source and not hockeyinsider? Doesn't make sense.

Well, reading the posts on the first page helps.

HockeyyInsiderr is a complete fraud. He has been caught lying several times and the 'proof' he shows is merely information available to anyone so motivated to find it. Consider him entertainment in a hockey news starved time. Anonymous 'insiders' are a dime a dozen. That said, HW has shown to be credible over the past decade from now defunct websites (CC).

I think his name is Alexandre Desautels, but I'm only basing this on the fact that an administrator with the same name is on vestiaire.ca, a website which he claimed he was a contributor for on his twitter biography for a while. The same Alexandre Desautels is following hockeyyinsiderr on twitter, so I think this could be the guy. I did a quick check on Facebook/LinkedIn and he appears to be an IT guy.. But he did answer a few hockey related questions on his Facebook.

Eklund and his sweet band of Buzzards get all the free beer they can drink from Moulson and is on the NHL's good side ..Curiously the lockout was a good thing for him..

Flame me if need be, but this is an HONEST question (really REALLY not trying to be a jerk)...

Why do we dictate what we can and can not post because they're from specific places?

Isnt this a message board, where people post things, then people talk about them?

I would think as long as you site the source, it shouldn't matter if its reputable or some new nobody.

You guys seem like taking two minutes to look at an non-reputable topic is a waste of your very existence (same with repeated threads). If youre spending all day on CDC anyway, what does it matter if you read something you dont believe?

Heck, you could still probably have a slightly meaningful conversation about "what-ifs", that is, if you weren't so busy brow beating people for posting something.

If it isnt cruel, harassment, inappropriate or offensive, why do we care what it is?

I guess i don't understand why were so strict about what we post. Is the internet going to run out of room or something? =P

Simple, here's an example; if an invalid source says the Sedins have been traded for Crosby and Malkin, and a legit source says the trade never happened, do you believe the invalid source is right, or the legit source? Common sense says believe the legit source is right.

After watching the video of the Mike Gillis media scrum on the first page and then reading the way that Jason Botchford and the Province tried to spin it into a negative 'ultimatum' melodrama-I'd like to nominate the Vancouver Province for the consideration of the editorial staff here for inclusion to the 'invalid sources' list.

I think they've earned their inclusion to the list the old fashioned way; through years of irresponsible and relentlessly negative and sensational team coverage.

I agree the province should not be above anyone on the boards here their articles are blatant trolling ala Jason BOTCHford.I mean frack I can go to McDonald's tomorrow and read their crappy sports section for free.......far from credible if you ask me.

Honestly I don't see why Eklund should be placed on the invalid list. He does link back to a member of the media so I can see why the mods have him on there. So I don't see any reason for you guys to have any problems with that and if you don't want to see Eklund rumors don't come here

Actually you are quite wrong. If you want Eklund's rumours, go to Eklund,
