      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.

Wow I remember when Canucks fans wanted him so bad, now they seem the opposite and believe he wont even make it.

You think Connauton or Joslin are going to beat him out?

I don't see that happening from what I've seen out of those two this season.

Edler, Ballard, Hamhuis, Bieksa, Tanev have all played in the SCF.

Is that not Veteran Experience? I honestly don't think 1 more win would give them more experience than they already have. They know what it takes to win.

Our "panicky" guys you have listed all have Game 7 of Stanley Cup Final experience.

He can have his tryout. But I don't want Barker. He just flat-out sucks. Minnesota and Edmonton have already tried the "reclamation" project with him. It didn't work.

Who knows. This could be a steal or a bust. No harm in bringing in a guy on a PTO. He's only 26, just entering his prime and maybe he'll be determined to prove the doubters wrong.

If this turns out to work for us it could be great, he could solidify our defense playing depth as a 6th or 7th man, he brings some size if we do decide to keep him, if he could put up the numbers he did back when he was in Chicago that would be more than enough for me. Especially if we get him for 1-1.5M it would be good. Not to mention if he just plain out sucks during the training we're not obligated to sign him.

Would rather Vandermeer. The guy brings more of what we need into our line up.

when he was with those teams they flat-out sucked. couldn't have been all his fault. No real excitement if he gets an invite officially, I doubt he will be the only d-man invited. also, did anyone think todd fedoruk would make the team last year? No, but there wasn't backlash like this about it.

I would be shocked if Barker made the Canucks. He's barely an AHL defenseman so how would he fit on one of the better teams in the Western Conference? Barker was a huge disappointment as a first round pick, especially 3rd overall. At least we (the Blackhawks) were able to turn Barker into Nick Leddy via trade.

@News1130Sports

#Canucks will have a new face at UBC this morning. Agent J. Barry tells us that defenseman Cam Barker will join the practice.

@News1130Sports

Barker hasn't signed with the Canucks, he just doesn't have anyone to work out with in Summerland.

@News1130Sports

Barry says he's still talking to several teams about Barker including the #Canucks.
