      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.

[Rumour/Report/Speculation] The Official Rick Nash Thread (Keep it all here please)

Recommended Posts

Scott Howson is an awful general manager.

Tells everybody that Rick Nash that he requested to be traded after the fact that he couldn't a complete a deal. Now Nash is supposed to captain the Columbus Blue Jackets for the rest of the season.

And now, he really helped the organization get more for Rick Nash by declaring he wants out. Remember what happened with Dany Heatley? Teams gouged the Senators and the best they could get for a 40-50 goalscorer at the time was Milan Michalek.

Just awful. Awful.

please please make an exception and extend the trade deadline so we can air the last episode of this soap opera instead of bringing it's sorry storyline back for another season.

Honestly, I don't know much about him... never really noticed him much when we played against them. Seems like another "almost 2nd line" player like Raymond/Higgins/Hansen.

I would totally do Hodgson for Brown straight up (or for minor stuff going either way).

I think our team is better and deeper this year if we lost Hodgson instead of Schneider. Lapierre can fill Hodgon's 3rd line spot better than someone like Sanford (I assume he would come the other way in a potential Nash deal) can fill Schneider's.

I think Schneider is going to have ridiculous value at draft day. He also protects us against a troublesome problem is Luongo craps the bed in the playoffs this year... not only for the playoffs themselves, but going forward. If you thought it was bad this season with how folks were riding Luongo even though losing the SCF wasn't his fault. Imagine if he let in 7 goals a couple of games and we lost in the 2nd round this year.

He would almost have to be traded at that point as his stay would become untenable. In that case I would be very happy to have Schneider in the wings.

I'd be really excited if we can get Rick Nash on the team for some type of Schneider deal. His cap is pretty high, but there were a lot of average players that got outrageous contracts last summer (leino, etc.). Since the cap is going up a bit, I think it's worth it. Nash playing with the Sedins would be a dream come true.

I have to say... all the folks who told me it would have been stupid to trade Hodgson for Brown when Brown was made available earlier in the year.

Who would still argue that would have been a crappy trade?

Plus, an interesting bit of foreshadowing about the Luongo situation.

Paying 7.5 mil for Nash is way more of a risk than paying 7.5 mil for Suter.

We need defence! It's the number 1 reason we made it to the finals last year. Having 6 top 4 defenceman is the key.
