      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.

I think you are crazy if you think Tallon is trading Gudbranson for Luongo.

I think so and didn't Schenn spend time in the dog house this year too? I like his physical game but too much of a gamble for a straight up Luongo swap. I remember watching one Leaf game against Florida where Schenn whiffed on the puck and the Panthers scored 10 seconds in.

Edler and Schenn could be a nightmare in there own zone.

I think we saw an example of 2 classy GM's tonight doing the right thing for a player and still getting what they want, Shero and Rutherford for J. Staal. If Luongo really wants to be in Florida because of his family, Gillis should do the right thing and as a way of respect to Luongo and thanks to his years here, find a way to get it done and stop dragging this sh*t on for so long. Yes, even if Gudbranson isn't coming back this way and we get 2 players back in return named Sturm and Samuelson ... j/k about the last part. .

Good on Gillis for refusing the one for one Schenn for Luango offer (if reports are accurate). Given how long Schenn's name has been ought there its obvious he can make that deal anytime. Presently, it can only discourage Schultz from coming our way. On a related subject, I wonder if the Leaf's drafting the top rated offensive D man signals that they don't like their chances of securing the Anaheim dodger.

Based on what? I gave an analysis why I think it's possible based on reports from Friedman and history of Gillis. What's your rationale?

Gillis has a chance to screw this team royally if he waits too long and Cory gets an offer sheet thrown at him. Him playing hardball could cost this team as much as it could help them.

Just sayin'

Or the Schneider negotiations are simply being kept quiet so as not to tip his hand - start panicking on June 31st.

Since Gillis took Schneids to qualifying offer (whatever that means), how much time does this buy the Canucks. I know people can't throw offer sheets on Jul 1st.

Schenn is a defensive guy... Schenn got into trouble cause Leafs wanted him to get into the play more, Schenn is a defensive D man and he would work well with Edler and their both big guys who hit hard! Schenn can look after the defensive part and let Edler go with the offensive part. Schenn would be a great fit with this D core with how it's made up now.

Fine. I'm just a pessimist because of the well...let's see now...42 years of failure??!?

At least I've only been able to be a fan for a little over half of them.

He be more screwed if he makes a trade under pressure, and in the end, it's not a very good trade, Canucks fans like yourself me, everyone else will be pissed. no trade is better then a bad trade.

Just sayin'. You don't know what's going on. Obviously the offeres presented to him was not good enough. That's why no trade was made. He screw the team over if he makes a bad trade.

Just sayin.

Schenn is also their wipping boy. Despite being a young man, and making hits, tough as hell, he is at times very sluggish defensively, not the best skater, little to know offensive skills, the over loaded minutes is actually exposing his weakness. I'm glad we didn't trade Luongo for this guy.

I really disagree with you. Schenn was rushed and had the weight of a really bad Leafs team on his shoulders which was hyped up as a playoff team and Schenn as the next Weber, this is all asking for trouble from a young player. Schenn had a great rookie season but after it Leafs want Schenn to develop more of an offensive game and this is were the problems happened, Schenn should be focused on his game and he'll be fine, Schenn also never had the solid veteran leadership to help him and he'll get that here, I think Schenn coming to Vancouver would improve his game in a huge way. He brings everything we need on the blue line.
