      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.

The 15th.

At least there's a date now, people.

Is there no pleasing anybody in the offseason? Me thinks not.

An actual date for a possible trade is as good as it gets.

I'll take it.

There have been a number of different dates stated over the course of the offseason, so far they have all fallen apart. Oh well though. :P I hope we can somehow swing signing him.

The idea behind the September 15 date is that he won't be able to sign a contract after that unless the lockout is lifted. If he doesn't have a contract, he can't get paid anything - not any bonus money he might have had on a new contract nor any payouts from the union for revenues from the league and 'strike' pay. Of course, if the owners don't lockout or a new CBA is signed, that date could change, but as it is it's the most firm date of any this summer.

I think doan will meet with the 2 or 3 teams he wants to play with.I highly doubt that he will stay in phoenix.This will be his last contract and thats what he wants,so where ever he signs it will be before the lockout and we will know soon.

Those other dates were reverse deadlines, as in "Shane Doan won't make a decision before this date", etc.

This is the first actual deadline that I've seen so far....

Nope. It won't go through until at least late September. And we all know when Doan said he'd sign by

:bigblush:

The writing is on the wall, but we're not the only team with lines in the water. Let's just hope we're the one's to land this tuna.

Its either:

- "We've come up with the money to keep the team!" ~ Phoenix

- "We'll offer you more than anyone to play with us". ~ Buffalo

- "We have a good shot of winning, but we can only offer you two years". ~ NY Rangers

- "We'll offer you 4 years, playing time with the Sedins, closest to home and have a great shot at winning". ~ Vancouver

Hopefully number 4.

Not to sound like a homer but if I'm Doan the 4th option sounds very appetizing to me.
