      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.

If Shane Doan wanted to play with the Canucks SO BAD he'd be signed already.

If his priority is to win now, he'll choose the Rangers because they have a better chance of winning in the next 4 years than the Canucks do.

Don't hold your breath folks. We have a shot, but it would take Doan choosing BC over chance to win IMO. Canucks are a great team, but the Rangers I think are better positioned over the next 4 years.

We did this in the massive Luongo thread predicting what page it will be at when he's traded. What page do you think Doan will be signed by? I'm gonna say 43.

Starting next year in big chunks almost all of their players are becoming Rfa/ufa over the next three years. If that isn't uncertainty I don't know what is.

How can you say that the Rangers have a better chance of winning when the Canucks have, arguably, been the most consistent team over the five seasons or so?

'Cause they are stacked whereas we have no second line.

That's how.

Not sure why you think the rangers have such a big chance to win the cup over us, maybe because of Nash?

Canucks IMO have just a good a chance or even better chance than the rangers and i just find it hilarious that because of 1 good season(finally) by the rangers they are considered the top team in the NHL. Sure they have some good players, chemistry, great goalie etc. Thing is we have players that we have watched over the last 5 years have a bit of a down year this last season and it doesnt all mean they wont bounce right back and have good years again. Dammit we still won the damn presidents trophy lol with most of our players haveing down years lmfao.

We have all the tools to win the cup i have no doubt about that, i just think the rangers need to put up some more good years and be in more playoff series for me to consider them a favorite over the nucks.

With the addition of doan i dont see how we are not the clear cut favorites to win the cup this season.

If we get him then we get him, and that is great, but if we don't which is more likely, just remember everyone he is 36 and he scored 78 points in 07-08...now at 50 points in 11-12 and looking most likely to dwindle more the coming year. 45 maybe? The year after 40 and so on and so on.

Just sayin: Doan is not the single most important answer to our teams question of trying to solve the cup. If we get him, good, if we don't then that is okay too, he is in his retirement slump off in points, as the facts bear out, and he is 36....I wouldn't like to give a roster spot to anyone over the age of 33 who isn't already a canuck player, but that is just me. The league is going younger, so lets not hinge our hopes on gramps over there.

Look who the Canucks have to resign over the next 3 years as well. What certainty does Van have? Can Gillis go another round of 'home town' discounts? Adding Nash is a big deal for the NYR. Who would blame Doan for wanting a chance to join that lineup. He has earned the opportunity.

Van's roster doesn't have the depth or outright talent that the NYR have. On the defensive side Van might be a little stronger but their offence comes nowhere close to the Ranger potential. I highly doubt Gaborik has another poor year. Who does Doan know on the Rangers vs the Canucks. He played with Nash on Team Canada a number of times, people say they are friends. He knows Garrison but who else?

If it all about a CUP then how Doan rates the players on the two rosters also plays a big part in his decision no matter if they are friends or not. Doan also realizes that the Luongo trade will bring additional talent back to the roster. One could also argue that getting to the CUP final might be easier for a western Conference team this coming season. There is also the idea that he wants to expose his kids to Canadian schools for awhile as well.

Funny thing is doan is still hoping somehow Phoenix will sign him. If this guy that wants to buy the Phoenix club is short 20 million how's he going to pay all his players if he's short cash period. It goes beyond the purchase of a club. The longer this goes the less chance Doan is going to sign in Phoenix.

The sad thing about this situation is I really think the longer it goes on he just signs a big one year deal in Phoenix and we have to go through this all again next year if the sale doesnt happen.

The whole Phoenix ordeal just seems to go on and on and nothing ever changes and nothing gets resolved.
