      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

I'm getting tired of the Coilers - how many first overall picks is that? They just keep expecting to be rewarded for losing.

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie Free agent defenceman Justin Schultz will decide tomorrow where he's signing.

Anyone know what time TSN will be live-streaming his decision :D

It's amazing how a player that has had no previous NHL experience is getting the amount of interest that he is from NHL teams and fans.

He won't sign here.

The Oilers have likely guaranteed him a top 4 spot to start the season, treated him like a king, got Gretzky and Coffey to kiss his arse and tell him how great he'll be in Edmonton.

He might have wanted to play for the Canucks, and the Canucks might have given him a nice pitch, but at the end of the day the Oilers are saying "sign with us, and you'll be a top 4 d-man in the NHL next season" while the Canucks are saying "sign with us and maybe you can work your way into our starting line up"

Career always trumps sentimentality. He might be a huge Canucks fan, but he's being faced with the choice between a team that will guarantee him ice time in the NHL as soon as next season, and a team that most certainly will not make such a promise. The Oilers smelt blood, that's why they got Gretz to call. That call probably sealed the deal. Could you imagine being a 22 year old and getting that call?

Bill Sweatt is nothing spectacular, and he did get a call up last season. Although it wasn't much of one.

I definitely wish we still had Lee in our system. What's the deal there? We traded his rights to Ottawa and then he "retired" to pursue a business endeavor? I was in the Canucks Outlet Store the other day and they had one of his away Game Worn jerseys there for sale. I was tempted to pick it up, it had some pretty decent wear on it.

If he signs with Edmonton, it will also be why he likely ends up on the LTIR within the first 2 months. They have no depth and he is not a big body. They will expcet him to be their Shea Weber and the kid has never played against grown men in an 82 game schedule.

Both Hall and RNH have seen some pretty serious injuries because they are thrust into leading roles on the Oilers before they are mature and strong enough to handle the size and speed of the league.

I see the same scenario for Schultz if he chooses guaranteed top 4 minutes over the opportunity to work his way into that position.

HIs agent will likely urge him to go where he gets the most exposure as that will mean a bigger contract when he becomes a UFA in 3 years.

IF he's as good as everyone seems to think, he should show some humility and sign with the team that will best prepare him for a long and successful career. Not a cheap and easy ride to the top where he may succeed but he also may fail.
