      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.

I have a feeling it`s gonna be New York for Doan now. After getting Nash and still having a huge amount of cap space, they can easily sign him.

They were the first team he visited too and apparently he was really impressed with the Rangers facilities.

His agent said that he also wanted to go to a team with a proud history and tradition, and one that had a chance to win. Pretty much the Rangers.

He's going to sign with Vancouver.

First line at the start of the season whenever that is:

Sedin-Sedin-Doan

Sweet..

Yah I don't trust his deadline, remember when he set a deadline for July 8th or something.

Ha! We're not getting

anything decent for Lu... The best we could possibly hope for is albatross for albatross (Luongo for Nash). Other than that, we're getting hosed...

And, not just for one or two reasons, we're getting hosed for just soooooo many:

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?).

2. Lu's treated management as bad as management treated Bure. Well, OK, maybe not quite that bad, but not good either. And, who has to make a massive gamble to acquire Lu?... Right, another team's management... They're like elephants, they don't forget.

3. If you were a coach or GM, would you want a player who asked out of a decade-long contract after three games on the bench??? Ever???

4. Lu is reportedly steering the trade towards one or two teams (who have nothing we want).

5. Lu never moved his family here. Despite signing a contract in the 2000's - that ran through the 2010's - and into the 2020's... Would you want a player who cared that much about your city?...

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

7. That contract.

8. Oh, and that contract was clearly designed so Lu could cheat the rules (and not play the last few years, yet still get paid the big bucks). Would you want a player who is OK with cheating?...

9. Luongo made his trade request public - thereby ensuring we don't get fair value. Again, would you want a player who did that to his last team on your team???

10. And, it's worth repeating... This isn't a long, drawn out thing or something that's been brewing forever. Lu is pissed that A BETTER PLAYER got to start THREE GAMES ahead of him. Three. Freaking. Games. And, he can't stand playing on this team anymore... Would you want a player like that on your team???

And, remember...

If you pick this player up - you are on the hook for like fifty million dollars - AND - you have to give up one or more decent players in exchange...

Oh yeah, and is this player famous for being a choker?...

The deadlines have all been "not before this date," so none of them have been broken or missed.

This is pretty harsh but there are some valid points, especially #10. How many here could have predicted Lou wanting out of Van when the series against L.A. started. I sure didn't.

i'm too lazy to find a picture of Garrison, but we got him.

Why are Canucks fans so pessimistic?

haha what?! Are you calling me pessimistic? I'm the furthest from pessimistic lol. I'm actually a realist, not a homer.

But while we're at it...

PS: I woudn't be surprised if Doan signed here though. I'm sure he wants to play for a Canadian team for once, but it's just whether he's willing to step out of the desert, take a bit of a paycut and determines we have the best chance to win it all.

I ran in to Shane Doan in Kamloops today at Save On Foods. Talked briefly, super nice guy. Didn't delve into his situation too much (although the conversation started like this- "are you Shane Doan?" yes , "You would look great in blue and green!"). Biggest thing I could take from my brief interlude is that his family is going to be a very big factor with where he plays. Gotta respect that.Didn't pester him beyond that except to say if he was in the line up in 10/11 the Canucks would have won. Nothing earth shattering but was pretty cool for me.
