      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.

They haven't had a legit goalie in quite some time. I have a feeling they would get over it quickly when he churns out 35+ wins.

Guys I know things can change but yesterday TSN reported that the only team Canucks are talking back and forth to is Florida currently, no talk right now with Toronto and Chicago was not even mentioned.

That DM conversation would be easy to fake, he could make a twitter account with Gervais' name and avatar and DM himself. As for the news, I don't see how any of that proves he has inside info. Some of it is convincing, but when you consider the volume of information he's putting out there he's bound to get some right.

With regards to Parise and Suter, he said many, many times before they signed that signings were imminent with Pitt and Det, the popular speculated destinations for them. It wasn't until he had a twitter fight with Wild beat writer Michael Russo that he covered his tracks.

I'll ask you this: Why would some insider do this? What does he have to gain? Why would he risk his contacts and current and future job opportunities for this?

The only thing Marty Turco ever did that I respected was as a Blackhawk...

Its only a matter of time before we see Luongo being traded to Florida. However we're not getting Gudbranson.

Versteeg, Ellerby and Upshall are all realistic options. Theodore too if he decides to waive his NTC to come to Vancouver.

These are the trades I am hoping for:

With Florida: Luongo+ for Matthias, Versteeg, Bjugstad and/or 1st

With Toronto: Luongo+ for Lupul, Colborne & 2nd / 1st & 3rd

With Chicago: Luongo+ for Hjalmarsson, Stalberg & 1st / 2nd & 3rd

Believe me, I was skeptical at first too, but the evidence is too overwhelming for it to be complete fluke.

Regarding Gervais, I suspected that too, or that perhaps it was photoshopped, but Bruno Gervais is following him, that cannot be pure coincidence.

Yes he did speculate Parise and Suter had interest in Pitts and DET respectively, and I believe that was the case. According to Pierre Lebrun Detroit thought they had Suter, so I think this is a case of a last day decision by both those guys.

And regards to simply getting some things right due to the volume of rumors, that just doesn`t seem to be the formula for this guy. How does one predict Jagr to Dallas or Burish to SJ. These came out of absolute left field, and the guy only mentioned 1 or 2 other teams with interest.

And if that still is not enough to convince you, how do you explain him calling Steve Ott to Buffalo for Derek Roy days before the trade. Out of the 600+ players in the league he gets that one 100%, the odds of randomly selecting two players and having them traded for one another in the next few days are astronomical.

Honestly, I have no clue why the hell he is doing this. Perhaps he simply enjoys being the bearer of news? But for me, the evidence is just too consistent to be chance.
