      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 am 'meh' on Burmi.

I know he has potential and a good defensive game, I just don't see the huge offensive upside yet.

However, I do agree that he may not be easily replaced.

Assuming there's a lockout or what?

The Jets may have been aware of this development, on account of them loading up on a few similar-capability free agents.

That's what happens when you sign Olli Jokinen instead of giving him a chance...

* most players are in for the money...

Maybe some of you people will start to share my Russian hate. If they all left for the KHL, it would be a better league IMO. It would also be a nice surprise to see what we're up against in WC/Olympics.

As a Jets season ticket holder, I'm neither here nor there if this should come to play.

Burmistrov is still incredibly young, and might burst out with more talented players. Or, at best, he is a good 3rd line center with a great defensive game.

That said, wouldn't be too disappointed. Not as if Cheveldayoff is making of habit of drafting or signing Russian free agents. If it happens, ce la vie.

I am sorry to say that 80-90% of the Russian players are all selfish and all about money. That other 10% is Datsyuk.
