      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.

If the Canucks did land Dubinsky, buyout time for Malhotra?

Huh? The Canucks have a $5.000 3C in Kesler but plays 2C because of a lack in that position. I'd rather go for something entirely different:

PIT

D. SEDIN

H. SEDIN

VAN

MALKIN

J. STAAL

We ALL know that fundamentally, this deal makes sense. Only emotional baggage prevents such a deal. Emotion and business don't mix.

Two Cup winning centers down the middle is exactly what is needed. We have enough to complement these two centers.

I doubt it.

IF Nucks get Dubinsky...I see Dubinsky slotting in 2nd line centre until Kesler gets back from injury. Lapierre moves up to 3rd while Malhotra takes 4th.

When Kelser gets back...then roll out Henrik, Kesler, Dubinsky, and Lapierre as the centres. Malhotra slots back as 4th LW and takes defensive faceoffs and PK.

When you say franchise, please remember you're talking about the Canucks; most records are easily breakable, unlike any of the original six and some.

When's the last time you saw a Sedin fight? Last time they played on the PK, the Internet was just becoming famous. They are indeed very soft and MUST play together. they also MUST have a defensively savvy player on their RW. Bertuzzi was the prototypical SEDIN complement. Didn't work. Naslund, one of the most exciting player to play the game, couldn't make it work with the Sedins either. They are babies and divers and don't fight back. Don't blame Lu for the inadequacies on the ice; blame the captain who might be an iron streak holder, but is as soft as cream puffs right out of the oven.

Mallon and Staal on the other hand, are the real deal. Mallon is 25 and Staal is 23.

They both fight when called upon, Malkin had 109 points in 75 games while Staal is ready for a bigger role that Pitsburgh will now afford him.

In the playoffs, both Malkin and Staal are absolute beasts.

The Canucks are not coming out of the West with the Sedins at the helm. The window of opportunity has come and gone for them and it is best to part ways.

Business wise, sell high.

If he plays the 3rd line center position I can see that. But at 4.2 mil he'll probably be unhappy with anything less than a top 6 role. And even with him on Kesler's line with Booth, I don't see how that will help that line produce. None of them could pass if their lives depended on it.

The only reason Dubinsky would be available was if the Rangers had a deal in place to get Nash, and needed cap room. So to the people making proposals with Booth, Ballard, or any other expensive players: stop.

Price will likely be one effective but cheap player (Lapierre, Hansen), plus a very good pick/prospect (or two good ones).

Wasn't Dubinsky struggling in NY and isnt really much of, if at all an upgrade to Booth. NY would have to add more to that IMO.

Not a big fan of Malhotra as our third line center. Great guy, good size, great on draws, strong skater, but does not have enough offensively to sustain 3rd line duties on a contender. Not to mention his tragic eye damage that has negatively effected his vision. Just 2 goals in 35 playoff games is not good enough.

Dubinsky would be a welcome addition IMO.

If Manny can make a recovery in form, a bottom 6 of:

Raymond Lapierre Kassian

Moen Malhotra Hansen ..............is ok with me

Well, Dubinsky & Hansen have played an entire season on a line together in 2005-2006...

This would hopefully create a third layer of offensive support behind the twins.

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows

Booth - Kesler - PA Parenteau

Higgins - Dubinsky - Hansen

That third line would be just an absolute counter attacking nightmare for other teams to deal with.

Well, who would you rather have at $4,2M? Ballard or Dubinsky.

Take your pic.
