      BOARD SPECIFIC RULES   02/05/2016

      These are board specific rules, meant to try to make the Trades and Free Agent Signings forum better for everyone. YOU MUST READ AND ABIDE BY THESE FORUM RULES.

      1. If an event happens, wait a few minutes before posting, in all likelihood, someone has already posted it. We don't want numerous threads on the same event, so please search before posting.

      2. Please provide a clearly identifiable topic title for your thread so that user's can search for and find the appropriate thread easily. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate. This is to help avoid duplicate threads and to make searching easier. For any and all comments, please use the Topic Description box instead of the title.

      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 that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriately label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].

      3. All trades, signings, rumours 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.

      The following are NOT considered valid sources: 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
      Hockeybuzz, Spector's Hockey and The Fourth Period are currently acceptable sources.

      The NHL Line, Brochu is Hockey and NHL Hockey News by saint Pako are currently invalid sources.

      4. Clearly misrepresenting the contents of your thread or posting false Trades/Signings/Acquisitions to send the forum into a frenzy will be taken very seriously and will result in an automatic suspension.

      5. Please put all proposals into the proposals forum and NOT this forum. Proposals found in this forum will be moved or deleted without warning.

      6. Please report any threads or messages that violate these or other board rules to the administrators or moderators() Do not respond by posting spammy messages such as 'IBTL', and 'LOCK AND BAN', or by attacking other users. The report button is located to the bottom left of every post.

      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM one of the Moderators or Administrators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Report] Boston Globe's Dupont on the Canucks

41 posts in this topic

Why do you call for the mods when someone posts an article? get a life...

Now for the article at hand, the writer is clearly an idiot. The contract would be a 35+ contract and they would not add "extra" years to it to reduce the salary cap because it would be stuck on the books after doan retires. The suggested 30 million over 4 years is bull, it has been reiterated by idiots across the land and has ultimately been refuted by doans agent multiple times.

Still obsessing in Boston over what the Canucks are doing?

Shouldn't they be more concerned about replacing Thomas, Turco (and Rolston)? I heard Hasek and Theo Fleury are available...

Ridiculous concept of what a Doan contract will look like. Perhaps if Philly or Minnesota were in the running...

Anyway, meh, regurgitated rumours - pretty much old news...

I think the idea is that if Doan really did want 30 million, the Canucks would have to do it over more than 4 years in order to lower the cap hit.  Precisely because, as a 35+ year player, his cap hit would remain for the duration of the contract.  Front loading it would mean he would get most of his money, and then decide if the last few years were worth playing.

Thankfully the 30million, 4-year rumours are probably false.

12.2 mill for guys that combined could rack up 200PTS. Not bad at all. Better than this Crosby, Parise, Suter type of money which is what, 9mill at least for one player?

Sedins are easily the best players for the best price in the league.

Lol

"One player stuffed into to suits for 12.2 million"

Have fun with Thomas's contract while he's not playing, fans of other teams (and ours) just can appreciate the Sedins, but I guess that's to be expected.

Unfortunately this Boston writer is on to something. Since we can't split our superstars apart, it's like they are only one reallly good player.

Yeah but it lowers the cap hit from 7.5 to 5 mill per year.

I think they can still be great players apart, they are better together but they can still produce apart

Could they produce apart as well as together? I guess its a loaded question, we would have to know who their linemates would be.
