      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.

I kind of respect the deal the BJ's worked out here. They get some working above average guys on offense, a good dman and a pick for a captain that didn't wana be there anymore.

SOmetimes you just get dealth a deuce and a seven and you have to try to make a hand of it.

I bet Murray comes in sooner rather than later, and with Erixon and pals (*was looking at wrong player list) we could see an interesting Dee for a few years.

Team Canada this year, has the most depth out of all the countries competing in this years World Juniors. The highest drafted defencemen from the 2012 draft will not be playing, however we still have access to the next 2 Defencemens (Morgan Reily, Griffin Reinhard). We also have offensive beast Dougie Hamilton, Matty Dumba, the list goes on. Huge lost for the team, but we have monster depth. Team Canada also has Ryan Nugent Hopkins. So I think it will be fine. If he was American or Finnish, might be different. I have faith in team Canada.
