      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.

[Report] Schneider for young Power Forward

Recommended Posts

Ian MacIntyre reports that Gillis was offered a power forward for Schneider at the trade deadline. He said Gillis turned the deal down.

I read in other blogs that apparently Gillis did not want to mess with the chemistry of the team at this time and the deal may be revisited in the summer. I am unable to find a Gillis interview where I can confirm that Gillis actually said those things.

Who do you think this "young power forward with impact potential" is?

"He said he turned the deal down"... Really..?

Kinda why it didn't happen?

In all seriousness, I would take Gillis' side on this.

Nothing is better then great offense already, and a phenomenal back-up goalie.

the only power forward i would even consider trading Schneider for right now is Milan Lucic :frantic:... but i guess we all know how thats impossible :P

Good. I'd rather have him until the very end where he can continue to prove himself which will make is value climb.

My speculation is it was Tomas Fleischmann and Craig Anderson

Colorado did make a move for a goalie, and gave a future UFA in return.

Colorado surely make an offer for schneider before they get Eliott.

So it make lot of sense.

Would you have done it ?

BTW i think you are dreaming if you think about Voracek or Kassian, Gillis wouldnt had walk away from these

As a montreal fan, i would consider giving carey price for voracek..Then sign one of the dozen solid UFA goalie this summer.

Does people still think we got rapped in the halak trade ? one blogger on hockeybuzz told after 10 game into the season that it was on of the most lopsided deal in the NHL history! (well, the comment didnt agreed with him!). I always tought we win this one as St-louis could have signed any UFA goalie this summer, get as good goaltending as halak, and keep eller, who play very well lately.

Well, im trying to find an offer than make sense, maybe hedjuk? even if he is not young.

Remember that we got Eller for Halak. After an incredible season as #01 and playoff by him.

so we have to think about a lot less impact player than eller! or a future UFA.

And remember...Gillis walked away while it make ton of sense to trade schneider since a long time.. so it surely wasnt an incredible offer!

The last time a player was ewwed, on the back of his jersey it said Lucic. My bet is it was Penner.

Not really. Halak had ONE good playoffs and suddenly he's among the elite?

He and Price were alternating starts pretty much the whole season.

People need to realize that.
