      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.

[Rumor] The Isles offered every pick they had in the draft for the 2nd overall pick

Recommended Posts

How highly did the Blue Jackets value defenseman Ryan Murray before taking him with the No. 2 overall pick in Friday's first round of the NHL Draft? Enough to turn down an eye-opening offer from the New York Islanders, who, according to numerous NHL sources, offered all of their picks -- one in each round -- for the right to move up from No. 4 to No. 2 for Murray.

That's right, for the Jackets' No. 2 pick, the Islanders offered pick Nos. 4, 34, 65, 103, 125, 155 and 185. The bounty would have given the Jackets the following picks: 4, 31, 34, 62, 65, 95, 103, 125, 152, 155, 182 and 185. And if that weren't enough, the Jackets could have had the Kings' No. 30 if they wanted it.

Next week's development camp would have required two sheets of ice.

Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson offered a "no comment" when reached by The Dispatch late Sunday. After Friday's first round, he did mention a "very attractive" trade offer the Blue Jackets declined before selection Murray, a precocious prospect whom many think could play in the NHL this season.

The Islanders, unable to move up for Murray, drafted highly-touted defenseman Griffin Reinhart with the No. 4 pick. But they didn't stop there. The Islanders spent all seven of their picks on defensemen.

This is only something that would happen between the two worst franchises in the league :lol:

I saw that artical as well.. To be honest I hold Griffen just as high as Murray and for a rebuilding team like CBJ it was stupid to not accept.

Wow NYI was probs hoping they could get Murray in the lineup by next season. Griffin Reinhart may need a little more time

Columbus should have taken the deal. It's not like their cupboard of prospects is stocked full.

Drop two spots and get seven more draft picks. Sounds like a great deal.

Scott Howson is a fool for not taking that deal.

Ryan Murray isn't that special - yes, he's a boy that's already played against men, but how much is he going to improve ? Some players mature early but also plateau early. For example, Jay Bouwmeester was like that - amazing at first because he was so much more mature than anybody else, but didn't develop further.

I see Murray in the same fold. In my opinion, Griffin Reinhart has the potential to be better than Murray down the road and so does Morgan Rielly who went right after Reinhart.

Why didn't the Islanders draft Dougie Hamilton last year.

Hamilton - Reinhart

That could be one of the mose dominant pairings for years to come.

They put this on themselves, then they try to fix the mistake by trading all of their picks.

Howson should have been fired after that Nash fiasco. So I blame Ownership not Howson for this one. Columbus should have taken the deal, draft Reilly, Dumba, or Reinhart.

howson turning down that deal for a rebuilding franchise r u kidding me. Now does everybody understand the ridiculous demands Howson is most likely wanting in return for Rick Nash.

"Islanders offer Tavares, Moulson, Reinhart and Grabner for Rick Nash......Howson declines because he wants Charlie Wang to build Columbus a new arena too"

Reinhart should be pretty solid... plus I agree, I'm not sold that Murray's worth THAT much to deal all 7 picks just to move up 2 spots... still surprised it happened though :lol:

I can't believe this until it is confirmed.

1) There's no way that Islanders can give up their #4 and their entire drafts for Murray. That is just outrageous!

2)There's also no way that Columbus did not accept that kind of offer.
