      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 preparing for Rick Nash

I've never thought Nash would end up here......but now I am actually hoping for it just so when we play the oilers he parks his 6'4 230 in front of their net.j/k

I am a fan of the turkey ham and swiss with lettuce, thinly sliced tomato, thinly sliced red onion, a smattering of mayo and deli mustard on either soudough or multi-grain (depends on my mood, lol). I usually pour a big glass of cola over lots of ice and let it fizz out so it's a tad flat. I then take these two to the coffee table and turn the old flatscreen to Comcast 419, eat my sammy and sip my soda and watch as Eklund rumours are flatly rebuked by real experts, analysts, GMs, players, and agents. I then copy and paste Eklund's rumors to one big Word document, print it out on some nice soft paper, hit the head, drop a duece and wipe with Eklund's credibility. Very satisfying, all in all.

Never happening, but Schneider for Nash straight up would be sweet, but they'd have to throw in a lot more. Star goalie is far more important to a team's success than a 40 goal scorer. Make them throw in a defenceman for depth and then we're talking.

The problem isn't that he doesn't actually have all this information coming into him. He absolutely does get all this info he puts out. The problem is; and what people don't seem to understand, is that he puts out every little tidbit of information he gets regardless of how credible it may be. That wouldn't be a problem if he didn't have his rating system...but that's also what makes him so much more popular (read: irritating) than his counterparts.

He's probably accurate 100% of the time but only in that he received information from "inside sources." "Inside sources" however is a pretty relative term. The only reason he's able to do what he does though is because people pay attention. It's like the WWE. It's ridiculously stupid and moderately juvenile but it's pretty entertaining...even if only ironically.

Exactly. He just posts what he hears. Unfortunately, things can change very quick.

The onions have to be thinly sliced though; Red onions are usually overpowering.

It's funny. I vacillate on the sourdough. I mostly love it, but for some reason, there are the odd times when it doesn't sound appealing. Inexplicable. My go-to, when I can't decide on which bread, is multi-grain. I just love the crunch and texture of the seeds and grains. Almost like another topping.

I'm also fond of the "Day-After-Thanksgiving" Sammich. Turkey (I prefer dark meat), sourdough (again, your choice), cranberry sauce (or jelly), cream cheese, with just a smidge of mayo on each slice of bread. Simple, declicious. The key to this one is to pile on the toppings (except the mayo, very important to use only a small amount of mayo). Too light on the toppings and it loses its decadent, self-indulgent satisfaction. Have an afghan blanket at the ready because the onset of the nap is rapid, lol.
