      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) Rick Nash to Vancouver?

346 posts in this topic

The most likely destination for Nash is the New York Rangers, who, like everyone else, covet pending unrestricted free agent Zach Parise but who were told earlier this week that Parise doesn't consider that a realistic move for him. The Rangers are still looking to get over the top after losing in the Eastern Conference finals to New Jersey, and need help up front, as it's expected star Marian Gaborik will be sidelined five to six months following shoulder surgery.

The other likely destination is Vancouver, where the Canucks are looking to unload Roberto Luongo and figure out a way to make good on years of unfulfilled playoff promise. The San Jose Sharks will be looking to make a move, too, after losing in the first round despite making a big splash at last year's draft by trading for defenseman Brent Burns.

On many fronts this makes sense for both teams, but no matter how much hockey sense it makes I can't get over a couple of things:

Why would Luongo waive his NTC to go to a perennial bottom-feeding team (a couple of playoff games the exception of course) when he was recently one win away from the holy-grail?

More importantly, if his wife didn't want to live in Vancouver (considered globally as one of the most desireable places in the entire world to live) what makes anyone think his wife would want to live in the CBJ (yes, I know it would be closer to her home in Fla, but let's be real, it's still CBJ)?

I don't care how much you hate Luongo..

If it's a deal for Nash, you trade Schneider. Not Luongo.

Taking back 13 odd million in cap space?

Give your head a shake. Then slam it off your desk.

No way Luongo waives his NTC.

Even sending Schneider there seems like a terrible thing to do to such a character guy. Poor Schneds, presumably, he would have to at least play there for a whole year, don't sign contract and the following year he becomes UFA.

Schneids, if you sign a contract with Van, make sure there is a NVM or else Gillis might sign and trade you to Columbus.

LOL... I wonder if his going to Columbus would remind him of his Florida days?

A mish-mash of players with little to no playoff aspirations, draft busts, and he'll have to stand on his head behind the young team... good times had by all :lol:

Luongo will not be goin to Columbus. The only deal here is centered around Schneider two top 9 forwards (now or future) and a defenseman.

Wouldn't Cory Schneider plus whatever else for Rick Nash make Us a better Team next Year. It's likely Luongo is leaving, but He did sign here two Years ago. Mike Gillis is responsible for the Goalie controversy by keeping Cory for so long. Teams have been asking about Cory for a while. Maybe, Mike G. is right in keeping Cory. If I'm the Canucks I'd want Rick Nash right now. The Canucks would have to shep some Salary though. That isn't easy.
