      BOARD SPECIFIC RULES   02/05/2016

      These are board specific rules, meant to try to make the Trades and Free Agent Signings forum better for everyone. YOU MUST READ AND ABIDE BY THESE FORUM RULES.

      1. If an event happens, wait a few minutes before posting, in all likelihood, someone has already posted it. We don't want numerous threads on the same event, so please search before posting.

      2. Please provide a clearly identifiable topic title for your thread so that user's can search for and find the appropriate thread easily. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate. This is to help avoid duplicate threads and to make searching easier. For any and all comments, please use the Topic Description box instead of the title.

      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 that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriately label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].

      3. All trades, signings, rumours 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.

      The following are NOT considered valid sources: 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
      Hockeybuzz, Spector's Hockey and The Fourth Period are currently acceptable sources.

      The NHL Line, Brochu is Hockey and NHL Hockey News by saint Pako are currently invalid sources.

      4. Clearly misrepresenting the contents of your thread or posting false Trades/Signings/Acquisitions to send the forum into a frenzy will be taken very seriously and will result in an automatic suspension.

      5. Please put all proposals into the proposals forum and NOT this forum. Proposals found in this forum will be moved or deleted without warning.

      6. Please report any threads or messages that violate these or other board rules to the administrators or moderators() Do not respond by posting spammy messages such as 'IBTL', and 'LOCK AND BAN', or by attacking other users. The report button is located to the bottom left of every post.

      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM one of the Moderators or Administrators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

Samjam99 has provided NO insight during this offseason whatsoever and appears to be a re-tweeter. That's it.

Eklund continues to throw out wild curveballs with the hope that something sticks. If he's right, he looks like a prophet. But he has NO insight whatsoever either.

Let's just wait for Bobby Mac saying that it's done. He and maybe Kyper now and then are the only guys worth paying attention to this time of year. Lebrun, Spector and Strickland aren't even good enough.

For laughable entertainment, see SamJam, Incarcerated Bob, Eklund and other blog-proclaimed 'insiders.' Regards.

In a way, i kinda feel sorry for Samir. He probably didn't expect this kind of backlash. But that's the risk you take when you have bloggers start claiming that you're some sortof prophet when in fact you got absolutely nothing.

I'd damn those silly bloggers first, then Samir. Well, both really. What a joke.

When will people stop thinking Eklund is actually a viable source?

The guy is a hackjob, and Dreger called him out. I'm sure Dreger had more "pleasant" things to say, but was professional enough not to.

Eklund is a joke, and anyone who actually thinks Eklund is legit needs to give their head a shake.

Eklund + samjam99 = why bother following on twitter?

Bobby Mac + Dregs = the best hockey experts to follow on twitter!

So on to more intelligent debate...

I feel like MG isn't necessarily waiting out Tallon or Burke. Do any of you think he may be waiting out Luongo? The closer the season gets, Luongo will understand that he doesn't want to be back up, and worse yet, get waived to the Wolves. He doesn't appear to be the guy (or doesn't want to be perceived as the guy) who's vetoing trades.

Don't get me wrong, I think he's earned his NMC and it's within his right to exercise what he bargained for, but it's becoming clear that if Luongo were to open up more teams he's willing to go, MG will instantly have more leverage.

Columbus (obviously), Chicago (Crawford meh), San Jose (Niemi meh), Ottawa (Anderson meh), Islanders, Anaheim (maybe) etc.

It's an Eklund/Samjam thread.

No room for 'intelligent debate' here.

I think once somesome posts 3 days ago that Luongo was traded and he actually wasn't then no need to really mention that person as a source no?

The Eklund formula:

Find a talented player that is:

1) Pending free agency.

2) Reported in the media as unhappy with the club.

3) Lacks a no movement clause (Sometimes you can get away with it if he has one)

4) Looks like a good fit in a trade capwise.

Then insert a team like Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, New York, Chicago, Boston, ect. so you get a lot of traffic with your website.

traffic= money from ads.

Example: Sources tell me Nash for Luongo a done deal...

Watch people flock to your website.
