      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.

[Confirmed] Gilbert Brule released from contract with Zurich

NEWS: Gilbert Brulé as expected released from his contract with Zurich. The former 1st rounder had no goals since start of season.

News1130 Sports@News1130Sports

Gilbert Brule 1st over-all pick in WHL draft - 6th over-all in NHL draft and it could be all over at age 25.

News1130 Sports@News1130Sports

In 14 games with the ZSC Lions in the Swiss league, Brule had no goals and 6 assists before Marc Crawford cut him.

Such a shame Gilbert Brule was rushed to the NHL by Columbus. Same goes for Oscar Moller in LA. Two of my favorite WHL prospects.

Wonder what is next for him. Such a promising young prospect.

If he values his hockey career, he'll train harder than he's ever trained before.

Train his ass off, shift his attitude from being a goal scorer to more of a utility player, and he just might be a viable piece for any NHL team.

He isn't a bad player, I just don't think he knows what his role is anymore..

That's really too bad.

I think he could re-tool his game and be a very effective bottom-six player.

Maclean ruined his career in Columbus by rushing him.

I heard MaC say once that Brule was his son's top choice for the draft. His son really wanted Mac to take Brule with the 6th overall. I think his son was around 10. Not sure but i remember something like 10 or 12.

I recall Brule playing well for the Phoenix Coyotes during their extended playoff run last postseason. I think some general managers would still give him an opportunity to play in the NHL.

I think he can still be a useful player for the right team. I think he'd fit in well on Nashville or on Phoenix again.

There's still time for him to turn it around.

He's a good player, and like many have said: If he trains like he's never trained before, and realizes he isn't a prominent goal scorer in the NHL, he'll be back in a utility role.

He's got the skill, he just doesn't have an abundance of it.

You're not insinuating that Doug MacLean made the wrong pick by listening to his teenaged son, are you? :unsure: Or just as a FYI?

He couldn't cut it in the biggs, don't mean to pour salt on a wound but he's Daigle 2.0.

I hope he rebounds from this somehow even if that means AHL contract and working his way up. It's all about confidence when you have a guy with this much talent.

God, I remember watching him play as the rookie of the year on the Giants and thinking he had an incredible future in front of him. Was really pulling for him too...sad that he's lost a few steps along the way.
