      BOARD SPECIFIC RULES   02/05/2016

      These are board specific rules, meant to try to make the Trades and Free Agent Signings forum better for everyone. YOU MUST READ AND ABIDE BY THESE FORUM RULES.

      1. If an event happens, wait a few minutes before posting, in all likelihood, someone has already posted it. We don't want numerous threads on the same event, so please search before posting.

      2. Please provide a clearly identifiable topic title for your thread so that user's can search for and find the appropriate thread easily. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate. This is to help avoid duplicate threads and to make searching easier. For any and all comments, please use the Topic Description box instead of the title.

      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 that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriately label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].

      3. All trades, signings, rumours 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.

      The following are NOT considered valid sources: 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
      Hockeybuzz, Spector's Hockey and The Fourth Period are currently acceptable sources.

      The NHL Line, Brochu is Hockey and NHL Hockey News by saint Pako are currently invalid sources.

      4. Clearly misrepresenting the contents of your thread or posting false Trades/Signings/Acquisitions to send the forum into a frenzy will be taken very seriously and will result in an automatic suspension.

      5. Please put all proposals into the proposals forum and NOT this forum. Proposals found in this forum will be moved or deleted without warning.

      6. Please report any threads or messages that violate these or other board rules to the administrators or moderators() Do not respond by posting spammy messages such as 'IBTL', and 'LOCK AND BAN', or by attacking other users. The report button is located to the bottom left of every post.

      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM one of the Moderators or Administrators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

This is the definition of an unrealistic lowball offer from a position of weakness - a prospect that isn't panning out on a team that needs a veteran/legitimate starting goaltender for a franchise goaltender on an elite team that doesn't need to make a move to remain a contender - it doesn't work that way. Sorry Leafs.

I think a deal with the Leafs is already in place. Both GM's, especially MG, are very patient.

1, If Burke doesn't want Luongo at all, we would all know about it by now. He says he is comfortable with Reimer and Scrivens, only if he wants another high 1st round pick comes 2013. The haven't made the playoffs for 7 years or something. They need an elite and reliable starter. They can only get that with Luongo.

2, I believe we are getting Luke Schenn in return. Burke drafted Morgan Reilly. With the depth on D they have they had no need to spend their 5th overall on a defenceman. This may suggest they are parting ways with one of their young D's.

3, Out of 5 choices we only drafted 1 D, in the 5th round. Yes we have some depth on the D in our prospect pool but lets face it we do not have top end D prospects.

4, The reason why the trade has not been pulled yet is because Gillis wants to do some shopping first (Burke doesn't have any options if he wants to upgrade), which means the deal we are getting from Toronto isn't great. So don't be surprised to see Lu and Schenn straight up.

Typical conversations between key players in the Luongo trade:

****

Burke to Gillis: "Dude, when can we get this deal done?? The media and Dave Nonis, who I secretly thinks has a lifelong man crush on Luongo, are driving me crazy!"

Gillis: "Sorry buddy, gotta sign Schneider first."

****

Schneider's agent to Schneider: "We should wait as long as we can before signing with the Canucks. If we wait til they trade Luongo, we can probably squeeze another half mil out of them. And then there are potential offer sheets. Some teams are willing to go as far as 4.5 mil for ya!"

****

Gillis to Schneider's agent: "We are prepared to offer 5 years, $17.5 million."

Schneider's agent's phone's automatic response to Gillis' calls from his cellphone: "Thank you for your call. I'm on vacation."

****

James Duthie to Gillis: "Any news with the Luongo trade?"

Gillis: "We are fielding more calls..."

People have to be open to the idea that Burke may be too stubborn to ever offer us good value.

If that's the case, then expect Luongo to be the starter again next season. Gillis will not give him away for nothing.

The market for goalies may be better at the deadline or next offseason.

We need a RIGHT-SIDED D-man, not a right-handed D-man.

Right handed players usually shoot left and play on the right side, this is because all the accuracy and "skill" comes from the hand holding the top of the stick to articulate it in certain ways. The power behind the stick isnt as justifiable as the control and accuracy.

Haha ... classic. You show a real deep understanding, were you a player's agent in your previous life?

It's true. Ever notice how many more left-shooters there are than right-shooters? (Obviously there are more right-handed people than lefties.)

I however, am an anomaly. I'm right handed but shoot right. Left feels wrong.

I just hope wherever he ends up whether it be here (not looking likely) or on another team, that he wins the cup.

^How? I support the Canucks always. Unless they have a falling out with the organization or chase money elsewhere, I cheer for Canucks that are on other teams.

Here is something interesting.

@anguscertified The #canucks really like Nikolai Kulemin.
