      BOARD SPECIFIC RULES   02/05/2016

      These are board specific rules, meant to try to make the Trades and Free Agent Signings forum better for everyone. YOU MUST READ AND ABIDE BY THESE FORUM RULES.

      1. If an event happens, wait a few minutes before posting, in all likelihood, someone has already posted it. We don't want numerous threads on the same event, so please search before posting.

      2. Please provide a clearly identifiable topic title for your thread so that user's can search for and find the appropriate thread easily. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate. This is to help avoid duplicate threads and to make searching easier. For any and all comments, please use the Topic Description box instead of the title.

      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 that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriately label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].

      3. All trades, signings, rumours 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.

      The following are NOT considered valid sources: 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
      Hockeybuzz, Spector's Hockey and The Fourth Period are currently acceptable sources.

      The NHL Line, Brochu is Hockey and NHL Hockey News by saint Pako are currently invalid sources.

      4. Clearly misrepresenting the contents of your thread or posting false Trades/Signings/Acquisitions to send the forum into a frenzy will be taken very seriously and will result in an automatic suspension.

      5. Please put all proposals into the proposals forum and NOT this forum. Proposals found in this forum will be moved or deleted without warning.

      6. Please report any threads or messages that violate these or other board rules to the administrators or moderators() Do not respond by posting spammy messages such as 'IBTL', and 'LOCK AND BAN', or by attacking other users. The report button is located to the bottom left of every post.

      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM one of the Moderators or Administrators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

@NHLSourcesSay breaks yet another signing.....Mods should honestly give this guy a chance.

No, he doesn't deserve a chance. He reported that GM Place had been renamed Telus Place was absolutely done and certain because the domain had been bought by the Canucks. News breaks that it would actually be renamed Rogers Arena, and the tweet mysteriously disappears.

And $800,000? Yeah, anyone that has a frickin' brain wouldn't pull that number out of their donkey. He was the second overall pick, he isn't going to make anything less than the maximum allowed under the CBA which is $900,000.

He also says he's been told Mitchell narrowed his teams down from 12 to 4. Again he portrays it as his news when Murph first reported it.

Indeed.

I just realized he blocked me on Twitter. sad.gif

I thought he went into hiding after getting exposed over the Telus Place thing.

He blocks anyone that calls him out on his BS. He blocked me when I called him out on him reporting Spezza got traded to Columbus. He then deleted the tweet and blamed the false report on a blog. You know if the report was correct he would take credit for it.

I think I did that too. laugh.gif

It's amazing how doing a search on Twitter, so many people treat him as a real insider and ask him for information on things. Come on, it's just some guy on Twitter.

This guy seems to get more respect from people than Eklund. Although Eklund epic failed on Sportsnet, we at least know he's not a 12 year old kid posting crap on Twitter.

Eklund and him are both jokes but Eklund is 10 times more reliable than him.

Well if he's really taking other peoples' reports and passing them off as his own AND blocking anybody who calls him on it as standard practice...

I think this was the last straw for a lot of people that were giving him the benefit of the doubt. He's getting torn apart on Twitter.

FYI - He also said Mitchell is close to signing, and Washington and San Jose are front runners. While that's not an outrageous claim, common sense will tell you that Vancouver has the advantage, all things being equal (salary, term, etc).

I think he's set himself up for another failure on this one.

He stole the Mitchell information from Murph. I've said all along this guys a joke and he showed that again today.

I wouldn't write off @nhlupdate as an invalid source.

He has been mentioned of breaking signings before, even by NHL.com. He also doesn't report rumours on that account, so if you

don't want any garbage and just want the news, then you can have it. @nhlrumor is an invalid source, but that doesn't mean @nhlupdate is invalid as well.

There is only proven news on that account. No reason it is not valid.

Just wanted to chime in.

Also, I would say another good valid account is Jay Gold, worth following for sure on twitter.

@NHLSourcesSay tweets that Ryan Malone does in fact have a no-trade clause...but Nick Kypreos, who he is following, beat him to it by 20 minutes. Lol, you guys were right, if you pay enough attention it's pretty obvious.

And @NHLSourcesSay fails again.

Just got word that the Kings are out of Mitchell sweeps, looks like the Capitals or Sharks...Canucks not out of it but its a long shot.
