      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.

[Rumour] Canucks have attempted to acquire Brandon Dubinsky

Recommended Posts

I'd be happy if he were a 3rd line C on this team when Kesler is back:

We have so many options then, and our depth is off the hook! I think that if this happened though, send Booth the other way. Then look for a top 6 forward. Pipe dream would be Parise:

Sedin-Sedin-Burrows

Parise-Kesler-Jensen

Higgins-Dubinsky-Hansen

Weise-Lapierre-Kassian

Trade Booth, Malhotra for Duby and a 4th

If we were to acquire Brandon Dubinsky, they would not want salary back. They are in for Rick Nash real hard and are most probably looking to clear cap space, and Dubinsky could be the odd man out.

What NY could be looking for would be a 1st Round Pick, 2nd/3rd round pick, and a prospect most probably. Only things we could give them would be Raymond, 1st, 2nd, Gragnani, Sweatt, Oreskovich, or Parent. Teams like Toronto could easily beat a offer we would give them.

Then they'll use those assets to make a deal for Luongo. Dubinsky isn't going to lead Toronto into the playoffs and Burke doesn't have time.

Rangers aren't going to get that kind of return for him from the Leafs. It's going to be a similar type deal to the Booth one IMO only with less salary going the other way due to being in the off-season.

Well, that's assuming the Rangers aren't 'agressively' shopping him by asking for a lot back. If they are asking for less than his value of 2-3 years ago, it could be worthwhile, but we'd have to give them back some salary.

Would a Booth/Dubinsky swap be worthwhile to both teams, or even good value? I'm not sure I'd do that, but we could use a center in Kesler's absence that could shift to wing when he returns.

207 hits last season. and +16. Career 52% on faceoffs. Versitile C/LW, capable of 20 goals, 40-50 points. Salary is a bit high, but depending on what we'd give up, could be a very nice 2nd/3rd liner. Diddnt do much of anything in the postseason... But he's not a liability.

Basically a thicker and much more aggressive version of Raymond... given that NYR would need the cap room for Nash, and Raymond is a winger that could fill the void at a lower cost, I could see the 2 involved in the deal with a few minor peices or draft picks.

Everyone needs to realize that NY is going after Rick Nash and are not looking for salary back. Also the Canucks have up to 15 million in cap space.

And you idiots need to stop trading booth... he's a Canuck next season, and he should be. The Canucks are in NEED of secondary scoring, he was on pace for 24 with the big move and the knee injury.... Im betting that with a full healthy training camp and season, he'll be knocking on 30...
