      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] Canucks interested in Brown, Kings made offer for Nash and Carter, Travis Moen unavailable

Recommended Posts

Brown is not equal to Schneider by any stretch. 2/3 RW does not equal a franchise goaltender.

yah im not sure about the bottom 6 defence but the top 4 are pretty good even if Doughty is playing poorly..

Either way their defensive game is insanely good, they mainly win 1 point games and Quick is a fantastic goaltender.

They got rid of Johnson because they aren't worried about their defence.. but we'll see how it pans out in the next couple days before the deadline

Raymond & a pick/picks for David Jones & Cody McLeod is about as good as it's gonna get for us. LA won't trade their captain to a conference rival.

Pittsburgh, Toronto, Rangers, Bruins...

If LA is tradeing Brown for cap reasons (as has been suggested) Raymond isn't really going to be of much value to them. Brown only makes $500 000 per year more than Raymond.

LA would expect an unrealistic return for Brown, he is their Captain, and his cap hit is only 3.175, he is basically in his prime at 27 years old. He has third most points on his team, tied for best +/- on his team, and tied for second in goals on his team. They are not going to do a "Schneider for Brown straight up" deal. They have a good starter in Quick, just as we have a good starter in Luongo. Guess what? We are trying to move Schneider for picks and/or reasonable depth. I am willing to bet they are looking to do the same with Bernier, trade him for picks and/or reasonable depth. These two teams really don't seem compatible for a trade.

You are contradicting yourself a bit. If LA wouldn't want to trade to a Conference rival, why would Avs want to trade to a division rival?

I still don't think we would get Dustin Brown, not because of us being conference rivals, just because we don't have any available players that LA would want.

Also, I think the Avs won't be sellers come trade deadline day. They have ALOT of players that they could have traded by now since about 90% of the team is UFA/RFA next season. It seems like they will be making a push for the playoffs.

I'm sorry, I forgot Canuck fans are so bias. How does Raymond and a 2nd for Brown sound for you? pretty fair right :picard:

Brown is a 2nd/3rd liner...please.

-Brown's last 4 seasons he has had 50 plus points

-Brown is practically always healthy

-Brown has been top 3 in hits for the last 6 seasons! (since 05-06)

-I guess that C on his chest is just a fashion statement

Get a reality check buddy. Brown is a top tier player who plays with heart and is the type of player that makes a difference in the playoffs, he's not just some 2nd/3rd liner.

And don't get me wrong, Schnieder is a great goalie who will backstop the team for many seasons that he lands on next season but don't you think if Schnieder's value really was that high, a trade of Schnieder for Nash or Schnieder for Perry would be fair? Too bad when the rumour of Perry for Schnieder Ballard and Raymond came up, the vibe around the league was what a joke because it was unfair for Anaheim. Also, even though Schnieder proved he has game, he has not proved himself as a starter because Luongo has been our number one. Thats why you can't start calling him a 'franchise goalie' after only 2 season of him being a solid backup.

So don't kid yourself. Maybe try and look at trades with a less bias perspective and you will understand what is fair and unfair.

The Avs don't really believe they're gonna make it, nor do they expect to go far (the Kings are a different story altogether). Downey was brought in because they are going to lose David Jones to unrestricted free agency:

Brown had 300 hits last year. Yes, Please!

But L.A wants a solid 2nd liner and quality young defenseman...Raymond isn't a 'solid' 2nd liner and I wonder how Tanev's value would be with other teams?

I just find it odd, here we are 3 days away for trade deadline and Avs are standing pat. Maybe they will have a large impact come TDD but for now there has been no indication of being sellers IMO

Ott would be a good fit, he has the same troll face as Torres. Hit's like him too and we could swing a deal Raymond and a 3rd for Ott.

Clearly I'd like to have Dustin brown on the team, but I really don't think GMMG is gunna make a big splash like that. He actually said on the video on the frontpage that he's just willing to add small pieces.

However, A line of booth - Kesler - brown... Holy hell

Right, because you have sources all around the league that made you aware of the 'vibe' right? Even though Pierre Mcguire was on Team1040 and said "I would be shocked if that happened. The Canucks can get even more for Schneider, especially with Raymond and Ballard involved in the deal." So you need to get YOUR facts straight.

Dustin Brown is a good hockey player but you say he's a 50 point player like we're all supposed to jump up and down and do the jig. 50 points makes him an AVERAGE 2nd line producer. Cory Schneider is the best back-up in this league and continues to prove just how good he is against any team he plays against.

And why doesn't the Nash thing happen? Don't make a doofus comment and claim it's because Schneider isn't good enough. It's because Rick Nash has a cap hit of almost 8 million dollars that we most certainly cannot have at the moment. Do I think Schneider for Nash is fair? Definitely not Nash is obviously worth more. But Schneider can definitely fetch more than Dustin Brown in a 1 for 1 deal.
