      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.

[Report] Shane Doan has begun to visit/meet with teams for his services

After the whistle stuff isn't what defines a power forward. It's what defines a goon. That said, the size that comes with being a power forward can often translate into post-whistle goonery. Powerforward stuff is using your size to protect the puck, drive the net, own the crease, and of course lay big hits.

Lol

How naive are you.

If his price tag exceeds 5.5 mil, Gillis just packs it in and leaves. If you would give a 35 year old as much or more money than Sedins when his production is trending downwards....

I'm just glad you arent the GM.

After the whistle stuff is one of the MANY things that defines a power forward. Along with playing big, and being a threat offensively.

Bertuzzi, Lucic, a prime Iginla, Nolan... Doan?

Doan would help us a lot. But he is not really a power forward. I'm just providing descriptions to help the... ignorant.

I doubt he could create any space out there, either.

He could mentor Kassian, no doubt. But IMO, Doan is not a true power forward. This is one of the many points I annoy people over.

IMO a real power forward looks for trouble in between the whistles. Always ready to fight. Like Lucic. Doan can fight--sometimes.

I'd say he is more of a big forward. That is also something this team could use in their top six. Someone who isn't just big, but plays big.

Mats Sundin could be held responsible for Daniel and Henrik's, and Kesler's, breakout seasons.

The funny thing is even without Doan,Weber,Schultz, whoever, the Canucks are still contenders. What we get back in the Luongo trade will solidify that even further, chill out people, support the team.

I'd honestly be happy with 3-4 years @ $16.5-21 million. $5.500 cap hit.

Doan's influence on Kassian could potentially be akin to Sundin's on Kesler. Get it done MG!

If shane wants 4 years...give him 4 years. If shane wants 20 - 24 Mill, give him the cash. A great mentor, and captain, could elevate damn near everyone on our team to another level.

Oh my, throws my words at me... so very damaging. :rolleyes: You haven't described anything. So what is it, specifically, that Shane Doan don't do that other powerforwards do?

Fight?

This guy steps up. Not sure what else you're looking for. Bodychecking the goalie? Slashing after the whistle?

Please enlighten us.
