      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.

SHANE DOAN: Close to signing in Vancouver

Recommended Posts

***LET ME EMPHASIZE that these tweets are not from the "dregers" or "Mackenzie's" of twitter, so take them for what they are worth.

I've been scouring Twitter, and apparently, Shane Doan has met twice with the Vancouver Canucks, the only team he's met twice with.

Hockeyy Insiderr@HockeyyInsiderr

BREAKING NEWS: Shane Doan met w. #CANUCKS last night. This is the 2nd meeting he had with VAN management. Only team that he met twice so far

He has also narrowed his list down to four teams:





Will DePaoli@TIOPS_DePaoli

Shane Doan has trimmed his long list of suitors down to four teams this week. #NYR #Penguins #Canucks

Also, he had a private (until now) meeting tuesday night with management. He left BC with this:


**SHANE DOAN UPDATE** Told Doan has left BC with his mind "almost made up". Very impressed with #Canucks. Ultimatum given to Jamison. #DOAN

Other tweets throughout the feed saying a decision could be made by Friday:

James Zeit@Nyrjames

A decision from shane doan will be likely on friday

Brennan Klak@nhlspeculation

If you didn't know already, Shane Doan will not sign with Calgary or Edmonton. Friday is when we may see progress on his situation.

Edit: I know these tweets are not from those big names, but its funny how they all have the same message. If you go back to deals like the garrison one, they all were saying it before dregs and BMac...Of course its no confirmation, but these influx of tweets regarding Vancouver are recent. I think they may be on to something here. And Hockeyy Insiderr BTW has been tweeting more accurately than most on Twitter jic you didn't know.

idc, I trust this guy. Even if he just gets his info from multiple media outlets, at least its all in one place and fairly accurate.

Hockeyy_Insiderr should be made a source. He always breaks news before it happens and when "he's wrong" he isn't really. He said that Parise has a verbal agreement with the Pens they day before he signed with the wild, he did have a verbal agreement but he broke it after talking to suter about the wild

The guy also tweeted

As of right now Doan is STRONGLY leaning towards the#CANUCKS. Only team he met with TWICE. His family want him to sign in Vancouver also.

These are rumours, not every rumour happens. I really think HI should be valid and Eklund should be placed on the invalid list.

On topic: Since everybody is saying Doan has made up his mind, I don't think this rumour is invalid, even if Hockeyyinsiderr is saying this.

Wasn't there a report Doan was going to meet with Bergevin in Montreal this weekend?

Is he flying out there for a free lunch only to yell, "I've already signed in Vancouver as of last night... Psyche!" into Bergevin's face after he's done eating?
