      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.

Everybody Hates Raymond

[Signing] Samuel Pahlsson to MODO

Recommended Posts

I tend to agree. And if it fails, we will still be a competitive play off team and there will be another Pahlsson avail at the deadline.

Our real challenge is replacing Hodgson!

At least this will stop people from making roster proposals with Pahlsson....

No, we found, in a prospect, the long lost hope of replacing Bertuzzi.

Look, we were dreadfully thin at right wing, Hansen being our only natural right side guy in the top 9. And in size. So i can see the logic.

But it just created a different void at center. Kassian is a different hole completely. Its coincidence they were traded for each other, nothing more.

We did replace Hodgson. Hodgson's name is now Kassian.

I have a feeling people won't be complaining about losing Hodgson after next season.

Best of luck to the Bull. Thought he played very well for the Canucks down the stretch. Congrats Markus and good luck Modo.

For those who are calling this a failure on the part of Gillis, thanks for the drama - very entertaining as always - and still not missing Hodgson an iota.

By the way, we still have Henrik, Kesler, Lapierre, Malhotra, and Schroeder - and wouldn't be surprised if a young guy like Matthias or Bjugstad winds up coming this way, in addtion to the possibilities amongst the depth centres available on the UFA market...

the guy clearly never wanted to be here. Never heard such a dissapointed post trade interview to the canucks in their last few years of excellence.

lol, makes the CoHo trade look even better...

People saying Schroeder should play there. Right... a less defensive and smaller CoHo. This team definitely needed a downgrade for our third line center while costing us a couple thirds in the process...

you could tell from his interview when he was traded that he doesn't have the passion for the NHL anymore

We just wasted 2 4th round picks, that can turn out to be steals.

Hodgson for a winger.

Kesler injured.

Now this.

And Manny still has one eye.

Gone from ultra-deep up the middle to ultra-shallow in short order.

Good thing the season will be cut in half, because Hank will be our only legit center for it. Oh right... Schroeder...

He was scoring at a 10 goal, 30 point pace. We could do better at 3rd line center with Lapierre, but his experience is something we needed. This would have been an amazing 3rd line:

Jensen - Pahlsson - Hansen

Perfect mix of speed (Hansen), size (Jensen), toughness (Pahlsson), youth and experience and all 3 are skilled enough to score. You win cups these days with lines of a little bit of everything, and that line would have had it all.
