      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.

[Eklund] Canucks interested in SEMIN

241 posts in this topic

So by Eklund being the source it then means that we have no interest in Semin right?

He doesnt fit in the VAN system

Semin could do well here, we would have to toughen him up a tad for western hockey.

Semin is by far the best offensive player available on market.

He just won gold with Russia and was with Malkin their best player. He has a wrist shot that most players can only dream about. He is a sniper! Something that is unknown to Canucks (except Bure & Naslund).

Maybe his attitude is not on Linden's level but that is why coaches & team are around.

He had an off year but I’m sure he’ll bounce back and score more than one 40+ goal season. Just imagine him on a line with Sedins. For 6M I would sign him anytime!

What do people have against signing Semin?? He has he best shot in the league, and with guys like the Sedins, or even Kesler/Booth, you know he could contribute. He's a right handed shot as well, imagine that with the Sedins.

i honestly wouldn't mind him, if we don't have a shot with any other soon to be overpayed UFAs,he might be our best bet. I'm sure our dressing room and coaching staff could keep him in line!

I'm probably the only one that want's a flashy, pure goal-scorer on our team?

worst case scenario: we sign him and he bolt for the KHL. then jensen, kassian or someone to replaces him.

best case scenario: he plays with the sedins and gets 40+ goals and we have a deadly sniper to play with the best passer in the league

if ou watched him in the playoffs you can tell he was trying his best he just didnt catch a break. maybe for a few years maybe 2 year deal he can be good for us

he's got the potential to be a 60 goal scorer. He will go wherever he gets the biggest pay cheque

No, rather see Jensen get his shot than Semin taking that roster spot.

No thanks. He might be among the best when it comes to his wrist-shot, but he chokes when it matters. He'll probably demand huge money, so he's not worth the risk. Also can't see him fit in great on either of our top-lines.
