      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.

He might as well just go year-to-year in Phoenix. What's the point of waiting for the Coyotes ownership to resolve something permanently now when we've all been waiting for an eternity already?

Pure lies from a liar. Or, can you show me how I'm a 'known Luongo hater'...

So then why would you say we need to trade Lu before signing Doan when you already found a solution. We can easily trade Raymond, Ballard, or Malhotra to clear up cap space.

You're kind of contradicting yourself there. If we sign Doan we can waive a player (cough..Raymond) and still be under cap, so that doesn't make Gillis any more desperate to trade Luongo. Depending on what happens w/ the CBA the cap will probably be higher anyway.

Some interesting connections I haven't seen yet. Probably meaningless.

Doan is an Alberta native, but Calgary lacks cap space and Edmonton is hardly a contender despite its collection of potential young stars. Doan does have ties to British Columbia as well though, having played for Kamloops in the Western Hockey League in his junior days and now being a part-owner of that Blazers franchise. His wife is also from Kamloops, making a return to British Columbia with a Canucks a possibility.

That

possibility was confirmed on Monday when Doan's agent Terry Bross told CKWX AM-1130 in Vancouver that the Canucks "are very much in the mix for his client." It doesn't hurt that Vancouver assistant general manager Laurence Gilman was with Winnipeg during Doan's days there.

Doan's Kamloops connections open up other possibilities as well. The ownership group is led by Tom Gaglardi, who just happens to also own the Dallas Stars. The Stars also happen to have just signed Doan's Phoenix teammate Ray Whitney to a two-year, $9 million deal.

Former Bruin Mark Recchi is part of the Kamloops ownership group as well, and could try to steer his buddy to Boston. Despite their close ties, which include co-hosting the annual Recchi-Doan Charity Classic, it's unlikely that Doan will venture this far East.

1. Lu's been a prima donna since day one (remember all the hoops he used to make management jump through - well, I shouldn't say 'used to', he's still doing it to this day?).

6. Would you want a player (signed for another decade) whose production declined dramatically and almost immediately after he signed that contract?...

He had the statistically best season of his career in the first year of the new contract and was one win away from winning the Stanley Cup.

The longer Doan holds out, the more I think he will stay a Coyote.

I think the longer Doan holds out, the chances of him leaving the coyotes rises, he's seems to be getting frustrated from the interviews I've read & seen, hope we find out by next week.

The fact management and the new owner are not sharing much info with him should be an indication that there are risks and uncertainties associated with the franchise and the deal.

Doan is just an asset to the league and proposed owner. He should take a hard look at the teams that have courted him and who really have a space for him in their plans and make a move.

To Phoenix, he is just a marquis player to fill seats (not many, unfortunately) and perhaps make money or reduce losses for Jamison (or the NHL).

He deserves better than to end his career struggling in a market that never should have been and which Bettman refuses to acknowledge. Staying only helps Bettman avoid more embarrassment but Shane will never get a sniff at a cup there.

You just picked the three guys on our team that wouldn't be easy to move.

I agree. Doan isn't trying to wait to make a decision, he's got family and children who are waiting for possibly their new city. It is the management and ownership that have been making Doan wait, the longer he waits, the more impatient he'll get.

A voice of reason! It was getting lonely in here (funny you should mention it, but I'm actually an atheist too, so I'm used to being violently attacked for being right when everyone else is wrong)!

And, yes, I am condescending. Unlike the competition, I'm intellectually-honest and will admit when I'm wrong. I have about 50 IQ points on most of these guys, so when dumb people call me stupid - I like to show them that I'm WAY smarter than they are (so, if I'm stupid - what the hell does that make them)!...
