      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.

[Signing] Looks like Matt Carle to Tampa

So a 40-point defenceman now costs 5+ million?

I was upset at Bieksa for 4.6 million but that has turned out to be one of the biggest steals on the blueline. MG is slowly starting to look like a genius again. Getting defencemen in the 4 million range is getting tougher and tougher, and he has 4 of them down for a long time. In 3 or 4 seasons 4 million will be insignificant compared to the ever increasing cap.

MG is a mastermind.

Defense and goaltending were their primary issues now. I think they've addressed their needs quite adequately this off-season.

Malone-Stamkos-St. Louis

Pouliot-Lecavalier-Purcell

Tyrell-Thompson-Connolly

Pyatt-Hall-Brown

Ohlund-Hedman

Carle-Brewer

Salo-Lee

Lindback

Garon

Because no one wants Ballard or his terrible contract?

On another note: Crazy money being thrown around. Canucks are going to get buried when the next round of D-Man Contracts are up.

please explain to me how a defensive core of salo, hedman, carle, ohlund, brewer, lee and an offensive core of stamkos, lecavalier, st.louis, malone, and purcell do not equal a stanley cup contender.

Terrible, terrible overpayment for Carle. All I can say.

That is a lot of money for Carle - makes the Garrison signing that much better. Really have to appreciate the way MG runs this franchise.

I have to add though, except for being good at moving the puck and put up points, Carle is a really good shotblocker too. 15th in the league in that category actually
