      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.

Deep breaths people.

Go meditate for awhile and all will be well.

He's huge, but he's not physical. Did you watch the Canucks when he was on this team? He doesn't hit a lot, he rarely fights (when he does, he gets worked), and he's about as slow as they get

Allen is a giant oaf

That's a great deal right there.. and a great player off the market. This guy blocks a hell lot of shots. Even if i like some things Gillis have done, you really start to question his work when you see a deal like this, and you lose a guy like Salo.

You people do realize we only have 10 million in cap space, and 8+ million of that is going to Weber.

All this hate on MG is unbelievable. Most of these signings will be regretted by their respective teams by the end of the year. PPL are being overpaid today. Some times the best move is the one you didn't make.

Parise and Suter are not coming here any ways. They will sign in the US.

Garrison is not going to take millions less to play for a team in his home province. I know some kids on these boards think money doesn't matter blah blah blah. I'm sorry to tell you guy this but that's not how real life works. Money talks.

Allen is exactly what the Canucks need. I'm not a big Gillis fan to begin with but this offseason is looking far worse than I could even imagine. As usual he's all talk no action.

What if he signs Suter and Parise? Would it be a big fail then? Or do you like Allen signing more?

I thought Allen would work if Van had signed Schultz or Salo but a Tanev spared off by Salo doesn't fly. If in fact MG thought he had Schultz then I think we would have seen a reaction today. Van's biggest needs are a top 6 LW and a right side top 4 dman. I have to believe that is what MG is focussed on whether that happens in FA or through a Lou deal.

You let Salo and Rome go, then miss your chance at Allen?! Gillis, you better sign both Parise and Suter! haha, at least Garrison

As good as Garrison is, we needed this guy too with Salo's loss. Now we have no experienced, veteran defenceman and our top-4 is lead by 4 guys in their prime who have been known to panic in the pressure situations.

Oh boy, MG better find us a #4/#5 defenceman who has 500+ games experience.
