      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.

[Report] Canucks to begin extension talks with Edler

Recommended Posts

We now need to trade Luongo for a top six forward no question. But we can also dump Ballard, Raymond, and Alberts as well (maybe let Higgins and Malhotra walk if necessary at the end of the year) which would free up close to $10 million. Say Luongo is traded for a top six winger with say, a $5 million cap hit. Top six solidified. Then we can trade Ballard and Raymond for an extra $6,475,000 of cap space. When that's all said and done we would have $9,239,999 in cap space. Plenty of room.

If Edler not signed to extension he'll be UFA next summer. Not good. He will get huge offers as one of the most if not the most coveted UFA next summer.

He doesnt want to sign here or he wants too much. If there is no season he is a UFA . However, I do think there will be a season so we can trade him to a team that wants to over pay him and he wants to go to.

This is not a problem I anticipated we'd be having, at all. Definitely don't like the sounds of all this, but hopefully it's nothing too serious and we can get him locked up.

Meaning trading them for picks, hence freeing up cap space. Thought you would've figured that out without me having to explain it to you.

Picks turn into players, players = salary.

Beyond that, who is going to trade for raymond? The answer being nobody of course.

Ballard is a good player, with a decent contract. Hes our only capable top4 that isnt in the top 4, meaning if one of our top 4 goes down to injury if ballard was not here, we would have andrew alberts playing top 4 minutes. Is that really something you want to see?

All I ask is that you think about the random useless crap you post before you post it. Proposal after proposal, lineups, coaches and strategies. You have an opinion on all of them, its unfortunate how uneducated your opinion can be.
