      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.

[Speculation] Possibility Of Justin Schultz Signing With Vancouver

Recommended Posts

Yeah I think Gilman is still there working on the contract. MG making magic happen again. I knew he had an off year due to the short off-season prep. MG with the huge announcement with Schneids. MAN refreshing every so often was WELL WORTH IT!

If he chooses the NYR it will be because of more than one reason, not the least of which are:

1. Tortorella's willingness to give 20-year old rookie defencemen major responsibilities (Staal, MacDonagh, Del Zotto, Sauer)

2. the NYR young core

3. their recent playoff growth

4. ex-Wisconsin teammates MacDonagh & Stepan (who can personally attest to, and sell him on, Tortorella's coaching)

5. Brad Richards, Marian Gaborik and the rumours of Nash to NY

6. the NYR need for a RH PP QBing defenceman

7. the city of NY

Off the top of my head, those are 7 very good reasons for him to sign in NY (much like there are very good reasons to sign in Vancouver) which is why the NYR appear to be one of the 5 teams still in the running for his services.

Miller- You make excellent points as always. However...it has been said he wants to play in a hockey crazy market and while the Rangers are big in NY they are clearly behind the Yankees, Giants, Jets and Knicks in terms of importance and popularity in the city.

Clearly the positives outweigh the point Iade but just sayin'.

I, personally, think the reason Schultz wants to play in a "hockey crazy market" is because he knows that those markets are cap ceiling teams with fanbases that won't be satisfied with just squeezing into the playoffs. It's all about playing in a winning environment and that means teams with money, imo, and the Rags are loaded.

Guess we will see.

Off topic Miller...You have always stated that MG likes doing business in an under the table kinda way, with few rumors prior to things getting done. Any chance you see him going hard after Suter at 7 per and then looking at Edler as a pending UFA who with these absurd prices could fetch 6 per on the open market and moving him in a deal for a Ryan type top 6 forward?

That's an interesting thought.

I like Edler as much as the next guy, but if we could sign a Suter or a Weber, and then acquire a Ryan or a Nash type by packaging Edler, then it is worth the thought.

Yeah, it's not like anything we propose is very likely to happen, but it's fun to talk about all the options we have.

Word is out that Vigneault hate playing kids. Kids are his whipping target. If Justin is paying attention to how Vigneault treat young players, he'll probably not sign here
