      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.

Rumor: Edler for Benn? Boucher for backup?

Recommended Posts

Grossman doesn't replace the giant hole that Edler would leave. This deal doesn't make sense at all.

Grossman is a shut down Dman, doesn't score many points. Garrison is the one who would get the PP time with Sedins and expected to contribute offense.

Grossman will not replace Edler in the slightest. You're either overrating Grossman, or underrating Edler.

Grossman is a bottom pairing defenseman not a top 4.

And if Garrison doesn't have a repeat season at least, the loss of Salo and then Edler would be devastating to our powerplay. The Sedins points would drop, and our offense would dry up. Don't underestimate the value that Edler's puck moving ability brings to the Sedins game.

Did you read my post before quoting it and responding? I'll repeat.

Grossman is a shut down Dman, he is not expected to replace Edler and his 49 pts.

As I said Garrison is the one who would get PP time and contribute offense.

Yes I did. And I responded by saying Grossman is not a top 4.

And again I said, if Garrison shows that last season was just a blip, then we're going to be in big trouble trying to create offense from the back end.

Yeah but your post which I quoted to start this converstation said that Grossman will not replace Edler. That's why I quoted it and said Grossman is a shut down D which means he will not be expected to replace Edler. This is the reason I brought up Garrison and his offense + potential offense with PP time with Sedins.

How am I overrating Grossman or underrating Edler when I don't even compare the two. Grossman is not supposed to replace Edler.

Why would you repeat your post when I already said Grossman is a shut down D hence he isn't supposed to replace Edler?

Ya I guess Ballard and Grossman split time as 4D depending on who the competition is and what kind of lineup is needed.

I don't think there is a big point in worrying about Edler leaving, Dallas wouldn't trade Benn for a pending UFA anyways.

Grossman would be coming in a potential Luongo trade. Not Edler trade.

Uh not to be a dick but.....read your post to yourself a few times and maybe the contradiction will set in :blink: Why would they waste time on changing Grossman`s skill set to one he clearly is not.

If we're doing a Luongo trade with Philly for a D-man, I would be alot more comfortable with Schenn as the return. i think he could have a breakout year now that he's out of Toronto.

Then we could do:

Edler

Raymond

for

Benn

Luongo

Schroeder

for

L.Schenn

Couturier

Sedin Sedin Burrows

Benn Kesler Booth

Higgins Couturier Kassian

Lapierre Malhotra Hansen

Hamhuis Bieksa

Garrison Schenn

Ballard Tanev

(this is a baseless speculation rumour deal, but...) I read it as two separate deals. The Edler/Benn deal makes more sense if Lu goes to TO as opposed to Philly. Gardiner takes Edler's spot, plus Kadri.

As BS as all this BS is....

I would trade any single player on this team outside of the Twins for Benn. This guy is gonna be something awesome.

Ah so it all makes sense now..

Luongo to Toronto for Frattin + Bozak + 1st

Edler and Raymond to Dallas for Benn

Malhotra to Philly for Grossman

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows

Booth - Kesler - Benn

Higgins - Bozak - Hansen

Frattin - Lappiere - Kassian

Hamhuis - Bieksa

Grossman - Garrison

Ballard - Tanev

That top 9 forwards is probably the best in the leauge. Screw defence, we'll out score our problems!

:bigblush:

Ah its great to dream eh.

^^ I would put Benn on 1st line with Twins after Kesler returns. Until then Benn would be 2nd line C.

I like to enlighten this thread by making my own rumor. What will happen is that I will post a potential trade that it will be shockingly genius that scums will run to Gillis and report this rumor to him, and he will mind blow and the deal will be created, thus it will be factual making this rumor legit and validates my credibility.

Edler to St.Louis for Tarasenko, Steen and Roman Polak.

Luongo and PK Subban to Edmonton in a three way trade that sends Yakupov, Pitlick to Montreal and Ladislav Smid, Magnus ParJarvi-Svensson and 1st Rounder from the Habs. With the 1st Rounder from the Habs, I will trade it and Connauton to Dallas for Jamie Benn. Then i will use a conditional draft choice to acquire Wade Redden and a 1st round draft pick from the Rangers, that also agree to take half of his salary. While, you were reading this, I have created a time machine to take us back to the time when players made 400k and it was a big deal. Assembling the greatest team in history.

The End.

While Benn would be nice to have, especially since he's from Victoria -- I think this is pure dreaming/BS. Dallas and Vancouver don't exactly have a peachy relationship at the top, and while you'd hope the owners would allow their GMs to do what they need to if it makes their teams better -- I still don't think Tom Gaglardi wants any part of helping Aquilini or his club after their legal battle a few years back.

No team is going to want to trade for Edler without seeing how he is recovering from his surgery unless they trade for him at a major discount.

Benn = Edler, 1st, Gaunce minimum

9^(*@&@($ If we get Benn I'll go nuts! One of my favourite players in the league and a local Victoria boy! Also I think he would be a PERFECT winger for the Sedins', he has great size, soft hands, and a rocket of a shot. And he's only 23! If theres anyone who I woud accept in a trade with Edler leaving it would be Benn.
