      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.

[Discussion] The Doan Meta-Thread v2.0

Recommended Posts

Tomorrow if Doan signs with Canucks you're going to boast "See! I told you he's right all the time" Where he is just making guesses on the most likely scenario.

Its a damn game to build web traffic to his site.

you're a fool to believe it.

end of story.

the problem with anonymous insiders like eklund and hockeyyinsiderr is that even if they do have legitimate sources, they still aren't credible or reputable because they have no journalistic integrity. they report rumors and hearsay as facts in the vain hope of being the first to break the story knowing full well that because they don't reveal their identities, and because they aren't credentialed members of the professional media, there will be no negative consequences for being wrong and teenagers all over the continent will continue to gobble up their garbage information.

If you guys pay any attention to him without having this "let's hate hockey insiderr" bandwagon, bias and group mentality, you'd see he actually does get a lot of stuff right. Whether he's just guessing, has a crystal ball or actually has inside sources, his credibility is definitely growing, the guy has released signing and trades long before they've occurred and backs it up by showing his original tweets from weeks before. He does sound like a dramatic Dbag on twitter sometimes, but his stuff is pretty legit, just seems like people are hating on him cause it's the popular thing to do.

Will be hilarious if he signs.....can't wait to quote the people that said it'd be impossible to get him in proposals section and the forum in general.....starting off with TOMPL and the numerous others.....but on the other hand, if he doesn't, guess they were right...

If u actually followed him and read his tweets you'd know that he stated that it was down to Phoenix and Vancouver probably 2 weeks ago. In fact I think I posted his tweets in this very thread stating this very fact and I was ridiculed for doing so. Go back and read it for yourself.

Say what u want about HockeyyInsiderr but this guy knows his stuff and is right more often than not. No one is right about this stuff 100% of the time. Mackenzie and Dregger aren't the only people with sources in the NHL. Those 2 make predictions that turn out to be wrong as well. The problem is with people like you who read something that states team "x" is talking with team "y" regarding a trade for player "z" and if the trade doesn't happen, u quickly jump all over whoever made the statement saying "see he's full of sh!t" 2 teams talking doesn't guarantee that the trade will be made. It simply means they are talking. He's simply just passing along that info.

So u can go ahead and keep dismissing his credibility, and putting him in no-win situations like you did your post I quoted if it makes you feel smart and noble.

I just disagree with you

Not very excited to sign a soon to be 36 year old to a possibly big contract. By the time next year, he'll be 37 at the start of the season, is he really going to be a 50 point player at that time still? Sorry, but I have my doubts. Doan plays a hard, grinding game, and quite frankly I don't see him playing like that at 37 years old. By this time, Jensen/Schroeder/Kassian could very well be a top 6 calibre player and with that being said, Doan is a high paid 3rd liner.

I'm scared we may have a contract we're going to regret, have the cap possibly go down in the new CBA, and have to try and fit Edler/Burrows under it too.
