      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.

[Signing] Justin Schultz to Oilers

Recommended Posts

He probably doesn't want to have fans like you guys. lol Plus Gretzky was in on it. But the positive is.. He can get NHL time there, and eventually become a free agent and move to Vancouver after he has proven himself. But we'll see how that goes.

Gotta say, I'm pretty disappointed about this and can't wait until tomorrow to see how Gillis reacts.

You can't blame the guy for making a decision that will affect his entire career which says a little something about our team and how we treat our young players.

I think AV is a good coach but MG made a mistake bringing him back.. we needed to move on and needed someone who's willing to make bolder moves and let the kids make some mistakes.

MG said that we're trying to emulate Detroit's organization but the entire vibe just feels different.. guys like helm and abdelkaeder got the chance to prove themselves while so many of our touted prospects didn't get anywhere.

I know AV has let a few guys grow like Burrows, Edler, Bieksa, Tanev.. but it seems like there are more instances where he possibly dropped the ball

Always bitching about AV, listen I dont like te guy either BUT Is this AV fault or is his MG fault? AV has not had a NEED to have our prospects prove themselves because MG is always filling holes with free agents.

Whatever you feel the problem may be, It is always more than one persons fault in an organization. And its not just MG an AV it comes down to our various coaching staff and iur amatuer AND pro scouts too.

Calm down. I don't get why the Canucks fan should be mad. It's not like he has a set spot on this roster anyways. Sure, it would be nice to have him but now he gets to develop in Edmonton. The Canucks need to win now, and already have Tanev playing the kid. We need a veteran defense man.

Him being a fan means nothing, and him wanting minutes is ideal. He's done nothing wrong here, folks. It's not his fault the media was all over his butt.

The voice of reason.

he should fit in nicely with Edmonton's young, finesse, undersized forwards....

Would have been great to have him but he made the decision that I would have made so I can't be mad at him. He wants to be the top guy and he's going to be that on the Oilers. Also I was worried about how Tanev would feel about us replacing him with Schultz, I would be pissed off.

We really need to win the Cup now before Edmonton goes on a roll. It sucks that we still need to bolster our defense and centre position but an unproven defensive rookie was not going to fix that.

Here's hoping to a Lu trade happening sometime at the deadline to bring in someone big or five.

Meh if he wants to suck, he can suck.

We don't need to lose to win. I thought he was an educated man, this seems like a stupid decision.

F**K schultz, his loss.

our lineup without any additions so far:

Hamhuis-Bieksa

Edler-Salo?

ballard-Tanev

still better than edmonton's crap defence. Edmonton's gonna get a cup in a few years, but after those elc's burn up, ohhh man its gonna bea garage sale up in there.

that's pretty much the same defense we had last season who were defenseless against the LA Kings.

Fans better get used to the fact no young player wants to play for the Canucks as long as AV is here.

Lol. Cause Edmonton has SO much depth on there team. They have half a second line, no third or fourth linr, no proven goaltending and no one on the backend that can shutdown any star players.

Edmonton as they are now are going to be President Trophy winners and that's it. They dont have the grit, size or defense to win any Cups.

I find it funny how some people are actually defending him. As if his career choices mean more to them than what the team wants. In reality he probably made a bad career choice, he'll probably be a minus player with the Oilers.

The fact that the Red Wings (the best organization in the NHL), were the first ones out on Schultz, should say it all. You don't guarantee ice-time to players who don't deserve it. That just sends a bad message to everyone on your team.

We haven't had highly touted prospects outside of Hodgson, and he was a prima donna. It's not AV's fault that the Canucks drafting up until recently has been pretty poor for the most part.

Schultz will sign 2-year deal for $925,000 per, with a signing bonus of $92,500. Bonuses $2.85 million, for an overall cap hit of $3.775.

A higher cap hit than Burrows for a player who has yet to play a single NHL game!? No thanks.
