      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.

Trade
Lightning trade for G Lindback of Preds

87 posts in this topic

Good, one less goalie on the market. From the sounds of it, Yzerman had no intention of trading for Luongo or Schneider anyways.

All this does is drive up the value for Luongo or Schneider for teams that are still desperate for a goaltender.

Yzerman says "Bernier, Harding, Gustavsson, etc. on the Market cost less than Schneider, take it or leave it".

Did you major in "stupid" at university?

Lindback is just 24 and has only been in North America for 2 seasons. He's looked quite solid in his NHL play so far. He's got great potential to be a starter.

Schneider and Luongo are still the best goalies available by far.

If teams wanna cheap out and gamble on unproven players, that's their choice. You gotta believe that at least one team will pay big for a more proven goaltender.

Eddie Lack is probably as good as Lindback, and Lindback had Suter and Weber and a trap system in front of him, yet still had below average numbers.

Lindback has adult-onset Still's disease. That may equate him to being kept in backup role indefinitely.

You can keep imflammation down with drugs, but that unfortunate diagnosis is what caused him to drop so far in his draft year, regardless of his excellence, in the first place.

Not many goalies are 100% bulletproof. Luongo has groin issues now. Schneider suffers through cramps. Thomas is insane. etc.

We knew Yzerman didn't want Luongo for weeks, he said so himself. People here just chose to ignore it.

The pucker factor will start to set in fairly soon for teams that really need an upgrade. Good time to put out news that Schneider has re-signed to an extension to get the idea of offer sheets off the table.

Things like this tend to get the ball rolling, lots of teams are in on the same players... so once those start becoming unavailable, the rest of the plans crystallize faster as there are fewer options to explore.

Short term, the looming lockout means that a high-games starting goaltender may not even be required to win a cup.

Try that again when you can form a proper sentence...

Lindback has done nothing to point to him being a career backup. This is a case of you thinking your opinion (and more specifically, your uninformed opinion) is a reality. Lindback's development in NA has been far better than Gustavsson's. The only comparison there is that they are both Swedish. Lindback's GAA was virtually the same as Rinne's was, and while his sv% wasn't as good, it was still solid. He's barely gotten his feet wet at the NHL level but his first taste of the NHL was far better than Schneider's was - he's 2 years younger than Schneider, and Schneider didn't look nearly as NHL ready a few years ago.

It's KYLE Wilson, not Colin.

The preds got some good value, Lindback is a career backup.
