      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.

It was a hyperbole genius....he barely got any minutes which means he obviously sucks, just like how Volpatti does.

You know more than the Canucks than the management itself does...explains why your coach - oh yea...

I'll give you some advice for meds when it comes to that. EOTM will hook a brotha up.

On what basis do players get a vote on strike vs no strike? If Ebbett is playing in the AHL but got NHL time last year does he get a vote? Curious.

The only one I'm surprised about is Ebbett, what with Kesler not being ready for at least a month or two and no other centers signed. It made me wonder if a signing was in in the works for someone like Arnott or a trade was all but settled for someone in return for Luongo.

Perhaps it's just a chance for Schroeder and Gaunce to show off their skills when camp does start and Ebbett will get the option with the potential relaxed rules to come back up to the team for camp without passing waivers.

Regardless, it's just so these players can have some playing time in the AHL, as they'd have to clear waivers to be able to be sent to the Wolves where our other players wouldn't have to go through waivers or aren't expected to play in the AHL yet until final cuts are made once the season's under way.

Shouldn't Pinizzotto be on that list? He's on a two way isn't he?

Edit.

I didn't realise the players are actually exposed as per normal waivers, just earlier this year per NHL/PA agreement. I guess the Canucks didn't want to risk him being claimed.

You know for the Sedin's 6th Sense, calling a guy who has 21 sucks shows how you're not the 6th sense of the Sedins.

Players don't get to vote. Bettman decides when he wants to lock out and the board of governors either agree with it or not.

Except that Kassian did get playoff minutes because he is a far better player than Volpatti.

I wish Volpatti well, but c'mon... "Scruuuuub."
