      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.

Remember the last time we got hyped over a defenseman from Florida with a cap hit of 4m+ ?

This is a solid free agent deal, despite the term.

Garrison is a solid D-man who can help out the PP. He actually has been playing well for two seasons, his offensive production was just that much better last season.

If he can get 25+ points and keep the back end nice and tidy playing top 4 minutes, he's worth the money.

Sure he might not live up to his contract, but then again he could also continue improving and become a bargain stud defenseman.

I don't think it's fair when people compare J-Bo to Garrison in terms of FA money. J-Bo's cap hit would be like a $8 million contract in today's cap ceiling, with no playoff experience. At least Garrison has put up points in the playoffs for Florida and at $4.6 per year, he's the best value for a defenseman after July 1.

We now have 5 LH defensemen and 2 RH defensemen. Obviously, that means we will be trading Edler and acquiring Weber.

Why trade Edler and not Ballard? Because we could get A LOT in return for Edler, and we likely wouldn't be able to afford both Weber and Edler beyond this season. And plus, we might have to give up Edler in the Weber trade anyhow.

The market being the way it is now, Luongo's cap hit is below market value.

Let's put it this way - he has earned the extra 850k that he will make over Schultz next year.

I'm happy with this signing. A local guy who wanted to play for his home team.

Don't think Gillis is done yet though.

it's risky sure but he's proven to be a great shut down top 4 D man, he may not hit the point total again and that's fine we could use a more of a shut down guy on this D core. What's really interesting to me is Edler situation... see we need to re-sign him BUT Weber should be a UFA and is everything we need, Gillis won't sign a player then trade him so I'm betting Gillis is after Weber this offseason, Preds can't sign him they may be willing to trade him and Edler can help ease the loss for them as he's a young top 15/10 D man who can put up 50 points maybe add in Schroeder and it may make sense for both teams. Or if they're really hurting for D man we can send them Ballard and Edler ;)

Would have preferred Carle, but I appreciate Garrison taking a hometown discount. Welcome back, Garrison!

3.05 million now being one twentythird of the salary cap: 70.2 million divided by the 23 roster players...this deal is All Kinds OF Awesome. And frankly, as someone pointed out earlier, so is Luongo's. When you get players that are superior and well above average for not much above average salary cap hit per year, your winning. #winning.

Now all we need is a depth forward, 2nd line winger, and 3rd line centre.

I say we sign Bitz and Mueller and go for Chimera during a trade
