      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.

It's funny how the story of Jamieson reportedly getting his financing together has somehow turned Shane Doan into a "prick" and this off season into "the worst in Canucks history", even though it's been reported all along that Doan preferred to re-sign in Phoenix and was going to give Jamieson every opportunity to get it done there.

Just shows the juvenille mindset of some of the people who post here. Expect the bile to flow freely once he officially re-signs with Phoenix

By making all these teams wait for him for nothing. Ridiculous hysterics? Give me a break, its been a terrible off season and I'm getting fed up of waiting for something to happen, and I assure you I'm not the only one who feels like this here.

Why would anybody be in such a rush to become and NHL team owner where the owners and NHLPA have a lot of negotiating to do. A partial season would be a nightmare for a new financially-challenged owner of a financially-challenged team. More importantly, how does Doan not see this as a red flag?

Except.. he's said all along he would wait to see what was happening w/ the Phoenix ownership, and that that was always his first choice to re-sign there all along.

I sitll think it'd be dumb for him to re-sign there, as there's still no stability there, seeing as Jamison couldn't even afford to buy the team, and it's running at a loss. Anyway, Doan is not the one who whipped up all this hysteria

Well, he's said signing with the Coyotes is his preferred choice. He's waiting for the PHX ownership deal to get completed so he can sign there. That way he knows the Coyotes are guaranteed to stay their for the immediate future.

Last week on TSN Doan said his first choice is to sign in PHX.

I have never read how many investors there actually are in his group. How would you like to be that 20% investor being responsible for 20% of the ongoing debt with potentially partners who don't really care about your concerns? I know Nashville has multiple owners as well. In the PHX situation trying to get agreement amongst ownership could be a real challenge. In the USA where litigation is the national sport (not hockey) it could be a free for all. I still think Bettmen will sweeten the pot to make it all work.

If someone offers you a job on the Alberta oil sands for $100k/year with tough working conditions, a crappy company, lower quality work mates, long cold winters and you have a wife and family... Are you going to take that over a $85k/year job in beautiful Vancouver for a better company, with more benefits, better coworkers, the office has a gym and spa, has more opportunity to advance and is a better environment for your wife and kids...?

The problem with your thought is your thinking in fractions. he's not taking a 15 thousand dollar paycut he's taking a $2 million dollar pay cut.I don't know how you could possibly mix fractions with money up. It's not a math problem it's a pay cheque.

The problem is YOU are not thinking percentages. $85k is 85% of $100k (duh). $6m is 85% of $7m. I have no idea where you're even getting fractions from...?

And as I've said numerous times, he would EASILY make up the around $1m-$1.5m difference doing endorsements in a hockey market like Vancouver. What we can pay, plus endorsements, plus playing on a contender etc and all the other intangibles evens the playing field IMO.

Perhaps Jamison has been assured by the NHL that the new CBA will garner enough revenue at the expense of the players, lower the cap and re-distribute the profits in such a manner that Phoenix and other struggling teams will have a better chance at being profitable. It would explain the bizarre first offer by the owners to the NHLPA. If a 25% roll-back does happen on all contracts, it also explains why Philly, Minny and others were so willing to offer the mega-contracts in the knowledge they wouldn't have to pay them anyways.

That pisses me off, Shane Doan accepting offers from other teams just to drive an offer up from Phoenix... And Bettman the little weasel that he is is probably helping with the millions of dollars needed to salvage this Coyotes franchise. Good luck winning a cup with Phoenix! Hahaha. Loyalty is everything but saying you want to win a Stanley Cup with a cup contender which clearly isn't Phoenix, well then what was the point in saying that if it wasn't true, everyone knows in Doans tenure left in the league, if he stays with Phoenix he will never win a cup.
