      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.

Updated - as per TSN - Mullen and Ebbett also on waiversWould make sense since these players are AHL bound to start the season anyways but the timing....perhaps open more salary for Doan???

It does make sense for bubble players to continue to develop in the AHL while the labour dispute drags on.

I heard somewhere that the NHL plans on relaxing the recall rule so teams can bring back those players without risking losing them.

I am certain this has nothing to do with Doan though.

'Proved himself' how? By being on the shelf for most of last season? By being used for zero minutes in the playoffs? Or by being a minor-league talent? Your 'sixth-sense' seems a bit off here.

Okay children relax...

Anyways, even though they were put on waivers they are allowed to be in Training Camp, right? (if, of course, it takes place)

Let's just say that Volpatti 'going to camp' doesn't make him a threat to be picked off of waivers, m'kay?

He is a scrub. A bottom-6 job for him is far from guaranteed. You don't need to be gm or coach to figure that out.

Extremely bored. Not looking forward to a lockout. If it is announced, the progression from 'nutty' to 'institutionalized' will begin. Yay?

I don't think Joslin, Mullen or Gordon would have made the team anyway. Desbiens was a long shot too. This is a better deal for the players as they can still rake in pay checks in the minors while players on one ways are out of work for as long as the lockout goes.
