      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.

Jason Arnott has recieved interest from a few clubs...will decide over next few days. Told hes fit and ready to go.

Doesn't appear he's coming to us, or I'd think we would have brought him to camp. It seems more likely we'll look to upgrade through trade, if we feel an upgrade is necessary. Might depend on Booth's MRI.

As a fan I'd like to see Arnott play a John Madden circa 2010-2011 for the Wild type season. Slightly less defensive ability, slightly more offense and a bigger body.

Interesting how after finishing with 31 points he earned a 2,000,000+ contract and now after a 34 point one, he is one of the last decent UFAs left.

Edit: The playoffs play a big influence, but still.. in a shortened season?

I'm not sold on Arnott. I think his numbers were 'opportune' in St Louis last year playing against weaker competition and getting a very high rate of offensive zone starts.

I would have rather signed Hecht, who's now off the market.

I think it's either the Luongo trade or Schroeder, Lappy, Malhotra, Ebbett, (Higgins) for now...

I would rather we gave up Booth+ for Ryane Clowe. A proven points scorer who has pummelled just about everyone in the league. In fact his first fight in the NHL as a rookie was a draw with Vandermeer.

Clowe would slot right into Booth's spot and could change places with Daniel when the going got physical for our top line. At 30 he is probably ready to come to a team like the Canucks who have a better shot at the SC than the Sharks.

Yeah, but would Booth+ be enough for San Jose? Assuming that plus isn't much to give up since Clowe is a pending UFA but means a lot to San Jose, I'd consider it. San Jose might look to start a rebuild at some point around Couture and Burns, but they have a weak prospect pool.

And would he stick around for a reasonable price, or would he be just a rental? He does play well and would fit in our lineup, but Booth is two years younger and has 2 more years on his deal.

Would Pavelski be a better option for us?

EDIT: D-Money and I had the same idea, but the UFA status does make a difference to the deal since we're still offering a comparable return on a longer deal.
