      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.

Plus the cap just went up to 70, and there shouldn't be any significant changes in the new CBA, so spending 15 to 20 million on these stars wont be that big of a deal.

It would be fine if there was only 3 players getting around 5 million, but it won't be - which was my point. Horcoff and Hemsky are getting 5 million right now, Whitney is getting 4 million. Hall, Eberle, RHN, Shultz and Yakupov (assuming he plays to potential) will ALL be able to get far more than Hemsky...so we're talking 6-8 million realistically. So, it's more like 30-40 million on those 5 in a couple years, and sorry - but they won't be able to keep doing that. At some point one or more are going to have to move just to be able to keep the 'core' that they choose on. Mind you, it's a good problem to have. But it's also why we won't see dynasty's built strictly from drafts.

Canucks are cursed. Guess how many first overall picks we've had in our entire history. Zero that's right and No cups. The Oilers well they have 5 cups and have have how many first over all picks? And then they land the best young defencman available. Not all organizations were created equal.

Hemsky and Horcoff wont be there when those players are making 6-8 if they ever do.

Who cares. I remember all the hubbub about Schultz's agent Ray Staszak too. Once he got to the show he didn't even come close to cutting it. This kid could have the same thing happen.

We pick our team on character and ability. Personally if I had spent my entire life the fan of a team and had the opportunity to go there I would. His choice speaks to selfishness in my opinion. He'll be booed in his home Province every time he touches the puck.

My final rant is to you people that keep talking about AV and how he treats our younger players. He has had so many develop well underneath him but he doesn't just hand them minutes. Big Deal, earn your ice. You clearly have no clue how a hockey team operates.

OHH NO, how could we miss out on signing a completely unproven and zero experience young D man for an overpriced salary!

Pretty much...

Overpriced? He'd come in at under a million. Only if he hits his bonuses would it be more. And if he's hitting his bonuses he's worth the money.

And to think at one point Anaheim had Jake Gardiner and Justin Schultz in their system..

In my opinion Schultz should have waited it out until December to make a decision.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

HOW COULD HE????

Shultz has officially chosen the Oilers.... this tells me that he would rather be a star player on a last place team rather than a solid contributor on a first place team. I wonder why this sounds familiar? Oh ya, Hodgson did the same thing.

So, Mr. Schultz, go have fun finishing last with Edmonton.... We can sign Ryan Suter or Jason Garrison or Matt Carle and move on just fine without his services.

Mike Gillis always says that when the Canucks are looking at aquiring a player one of the most important things they look for is personality. If Schultz made the decision to be a star player on a bad team, then I'd say he is an example of the self-centered player that MG is not interested in aquiring.

But having said all this..... I am still really really really mad that Schultz didn't sign with us!!!

My rant is done :towel:

Oilers cup window is going to open in the next few years.

Canucks cup window is arguably closed.

Smart move by Justin. He's going to excel in Edmonton.

What a buncha losers you all are, we lost out bigtime suck it up.

Boooo to all of you crybabies.

And for all you that think the oil are contenders now or anytime soon you are forgetting one thing, they have 0 goaltending and all the scoring in the world can't fix that

What painful words to read. True, but painful nonetheless.

We never found a replacment for Ehrhoff, J.S. could have been that. The sedins would have made him into that. The smooth skating defencman that our pp was missing all season long. well i hope Kassian can play like a stud this year and i hope tanev is good enough to take a top 4 spot, Getting Garrison and Trading Luongo is where MG focus should be, hopfully we can get a strong 2 way 3rd line stud center for Luongo. Make it happen MG.

He made a career decision. HOpe it works out for him. Didn't know he was really going to take the easy way to the NHL. MIke Gillis doesn't like making promises. But true, bunch of you canucks fans making yourself look very stupid now, just like the rioters. In the end of the day, he chose a rising team.

Signing Tootoo and Garrison at reasonable prices and getting something substantial back for Luongo are what his focuses should be in my opinion.
