      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.

[OLD TRADE] Cory Schneider for Gilbert Brule

Recommended Posts

Doug MacLean on Hockeycentral today said he got a call from Dave Nonis back when Nonis took over the GM role with the Canucks and Dave offered Schneider straight up for Brule.

How different would our organization look of that had happened eh?

Hindsight guys, Brule was supposed to be huge and may very well have been a star if he hadn't been developed by Columbus. At the time that it would have happened you all would have been peeing yourselves with excitement.

It should also be noted, Schneider would not have had all this time for development in Manitoba and back-up.

Brule probably would of developed better in Vancouver versus Columbus, the same could not be said for Schneider

Dave Nonis lowballed Doug McLean. The Canucks would have run away with this trade.

if this was at all around the time when we had gotten luongo, this deal makes total sense.

1. you are about to trade/have traded for an elite goaltender in roberto who will be the face of the franchise.

2. you have a spare rather blue chip goalie in schneider in the minors

3. you need forwards - please remember, at the time Brule was highly sought after/top prospect that was supposed to become a superstar

see: http://forecaster.th...?CBJ&DraftID=10

heinsight is 20/20. cbj rushed his development (see turris in phx).

edit: i cant believe the ignorance by some on this board is unbelievable. please do research or go back to 2005 when brule was drafted. there was even talk of him going 2nd overall. I also remember a lot of people wanting Nonis to trade down for Brule.

I didn't see the show, did MacLean say at all why he passed up on the deal?

I don't think we need MacLean to tell us why? :huh:

It was a clear lowball from Nonis. Brule was one of the top-rated prospects at the time and Schneider was a guy who played high school hockey in his draft year.

Is that sweet offer still on the table? We could make that trade and maybe convice Fabian Brunnstrom to sign with us = Cup!
