      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.

8.3 in goalies is too much IMO. Such a waste of an asset.

I guess the best way to counter that for Gillis is to tell his agent, negotiate, or your ass is traded out of town. Gillis is just as comfortable keeping Lu and trading Schneids

If the alternative is paying to dump Lou's contract then I'll take the 8.3 in cap every time. Like he was saying this allows us time and better bartering position, don't see how we lose because I don't think MG was planning to go crazy in free agency or anything.

Lou is not coming back. There is no way that he can save face with the fans. I would almost be more willing to deal both than bring back Lou. The fact is that if MG gets the feeling that neither player wants to cooperate, the possibility does exist that both could be gone. MG has to do what's in the Canucks best interests, not in the players.

This being said, he's really created one hell of a mess. I'm wondering if he's regretting not dealing Lou at the draft.

Exactly. I can't see Schneider not wanting to cooperate, however.

And more than not dealing Lou at the draft, I'm wondering how much he's regretting signing Lou to the deal he signed him to in the first place. He could have signed him to the same per year salary at a shorter term and we wouldn't be having this conversation, as Schneider could be signed by now to a reasonable contract that got him through to the end of Lou's contract, at which time MG could offer him a true number one deal to take over. A reasonable length contract for Lou in the first place puts his current cotract at pretty much two to three years from bewing expired; the length contract that Schneider will most likely be signed to. And MG wouldn't be forced to pay a premium to extend Schneider through a reasonable Lou contract, either.

Coulda, woulda, shoulda.

His cap hit would be much higher if it was a shorter term...you know there is a benefit to the long term contract. It gives the Canucks an opportunity to add more depth to the line up without going over the cap. MG would make the same deal today if given the opportunity.

Hey guys, kind of unrelated to all the rumors, but just something I've been thinking about. If a trade was to go down with TOR, whats with all the hate towards Mike Komisarek? I just remember him being a fan fav in MTL and the dude is a 240 lb 6'4" hard hitting stay at home defenseman, wouldn't that be a good fit for us? At this point, I wouldn't be opposed to almost switching Ballard with Komisarek in a potential Lu deal, as I think Ballards smooth skating skill game is better suited on the east coast, and Komisareks big body might be better suited for the west coast type of play. Basically, what has Komisarek done in TOR to warrant all this displeasure with him?
