      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.

"Doesn't have ideal size, doesn't play a physical game and isn't strong enough to handle big NHL fowards" - Scouting report off of BR.

Can never get enough depth on D though.

These guys will never make it on our team, regardless of injuries. A couple plugs for the Wolves, nothing more

Why you getting personal bud. I want to win a cup. Signing a couple plugs for the AHL doesn't make the canucks better nor do I care if the Wolves come in last or in first. But that's just me. If you care about the Wolves success, then more power to you. Just don't drag me down to your level of mediocrity.

They're just idiots, don't even bother with them....think this is NHL 12 where the farm team will be filled with players automatically....

I don't understand this. So you want us to just have NHL roster players, no players who can potentially surprise people later on? I guess there's no such thing as a cap in today's NHL then?

Getting these kind of players, one could almost think of them as prospects. They may stay in the AHL, they might crack a roster spot. Just look at Ebbett, Pinizotto, Bitz, Rome.... who would have thought Rome would have made it?

Your comment is bold and easily fallible as soon as one of these two makes a roster spot. lol

You cared enough to bitch about me bitchin about an AHL signing. You're just as bitchy as me. What's your point? - just sayin'.

I contributed towards the thread by saying he's not a bad pickup. What have you done in this thread besides being an attention whore? Yeah, just sayin'.

You have no idea how the league runs do you? Without the AHL the NHL wouldn't function. 95% of players spend their time developing there, and without it, there would be no process for entering the NHL.

If MG doesn't care for our farm team, (much like a real farm) our prospects won't properly develop into the players they are supposed to be. The better the coaching, the team, and the opportunities they have, the better probability of them turning into successful NHL players for OUR team (or at least trade bait).

So unless you don't care about the success of our prospects (which you are probably one of those complainers who complain about our weak prospect pool), you should care about whether they find success in the AHL.

But I guess MG is the mediocre one for bettering both franchises by ensuring the success of the farm, and you are the genius on the internet who says just ignore the prospects, they can develop themselves. That will work.

Iv'e expressed my opinion that I don't think MG should be wasting his time signing plugs. Disagreeing with you doesn't make me an attention whore. If everyone all agreed with each other there would be no point in forums or conversation. - just sayin'

Hopefully they never play an NHL game next season. I really hope these guys aren't supposed to replace Rome, and that they're just here for the Wolves.

No, you are more or less stating that AHL players are useless and that nobody cares about them and the league. That is your opinion.

You've also been flamed by users all over this thread so I don't see why you're even bothering to respond.

It's not the fact that you disagree with me that you look foolish in this thread.

You are not even commenting on the fact that his stats SEEM to show that he has room to grow - I never said he'll be the next Brett Hull. Maybe he'll pan out, maybe he won't. What does AHL bashing have anything to do with it? Newsflash - A LOT of players go through the AHL, especially defenseman.
