      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.

81 posts in this topic

This just recently RT by Canucks Army

Kevin Woodley ‏@KevinisInGoal

Huet tells L'Equipe talked w/ Kings + Canucks. No surprise on latter if/when trade Luongo. good history w/ Melanson: http://bit.ly/Oq3a7u

Not sure how I feel about this situation.

Maybe I just have a soft spot for Dan Ellis?

Sorry if this is already posted, didn't see it anywhere. Thought it's kinda interesting though. If/when we trade Lou, is the plan not to use Lack as backup?

Thoughts?

Lack's agent came out and said he thinks that Lack should get one more year in the AHL before being NHL ready in 2013.

No! No!

Don't want him.

We need YOUNGER players, and since thes "rumor" experts are saying we're after Arnot and Doan, we don't need another over-aged player!

For a reasonable price, I think Huet would be the perfect backup.

I can see it now. Boston vs Canucks. Huet in net. Brad Marchand on a breakaway, Huet charges at Marchand. Marchand does a front flip and lands on his head.

I think Id rather have Dan Ellis. Or Theodore in a Luongo deal.

One year too much. He's a big question mark, what if Schneider actually gets hurt, then what?

This guy hasn't played in NHL for a while now and we're not even sure if he can compete.

Assuming we don't receive a backup goaltender in the Luongo trade, and assuming that the Kings don't receive a backup goaltender in the Bernier trade, it makes sense for both teams to look at every available UFA backup.

However, not many teams run a 3-goalie system on purpose.

The question about Huet was never about his talent. He just got grossly overpaid by an idiotic Blackhawks GM.

Besides, aren't you that idiot who feels the need to go into every single thread about Luongo and/or Schneider and state that Schneider will never be as good as Luongo? Why should your opinion on goaltending even matter?
