      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.

[Signing] Filatov Signs With Salavat Yulaev Ufa

That ranks up there with who gives a sh*t! Sorry but anymore than one Russian on a team is simply trouble.

This is why, unless you do your homework, and the Russian you draft is committed to playing in North America you're taking a major risk in drafting Russian players.

For every Ovechkin there's 5-6 Filatov's.

not sure why he would be missed (bottom-feeders Columbus surely didn't miss him), after only playing nine (early-season) games with the playoff-bound Sens, who have

Michalek, Alfie, Foligno, Neil, Greening, Condra, Butler, etc. on the wings

The guy just fell apart. I remember he was a dominant player at the Wjc one year then spent some time in the NHL. Went back to the Wjc a year older and completely sucked. I blame the Cbj for his development.

This is why Columbus is so awful.

See

Filatov - Going to Russia

Zherdev - Russia or somewhere

Klesla (still playing but a disappointment for being 4th overall)

Leclaire - Washed up

Picard - Awful

Brule - Rushed and never panned out

Brassard - Not bad of a pick

Voracek - Traded who became Carter who became Johnson

Moore - We will see

Johansen - We will see

Nash - Still there but wants out

Awful drafting

I wanted to see him and try and make something of himself in North America. Guess I'll never see that.

Watch Edmonton give the russians the cold shoulder and draft Ryan Murray 1st overall, then with the second pick Columbus takes Yakupov..... who then turns into an nhl bust and bolts back to Russia :lol::lol:

IN his defence, (Filatov) I truly believe he wanted to play in the NHL. Columbus screwed up his developement, also doesn't help when HItchcock is going haywire on the young kid. I didn't think this will really happy. I really thought he was going to be an offensive player in the NHL. OH well.

Rick Dudley will be the next General Manager in Columbus once Howson goes. He was starting to turn Atlanta into a playoff contender. Gary Roberts should also be a candidate for a GM role somewhere because of his talent evaluation and skill in player development.
