      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.

That would be sick if he all the sudden figured it out and turned into that 3rd overall stud he was supposed to be haha

Hamhuis - Bieksa

Edler - Garrison

Ballard - Tanev

Alberts, Barker

Connauton, Mullen, Sauve and Joslin.

Good depth, but I still see one more tweak coming.

seems weird that he agreed to a pto and then signed on the first day of camp.

Hmmm, Interested to see how he works out. Not sure how effective he'll be but if he can stick as 7 or 8 D and provide depth it'll be alright. Other wise he's familiar with Chicago.

There's still one big trade likely coming with Luongo, so maybe Tanev is that young player needed to get a young player out of Nonis, who knows? Or maybe Ballard is going with Luongo and Canucks will take some of the cap?

If not, I see Barker starting off as a 7th or 8th guy, and playing an Alberts like role and if he make the best of it, moving up more often.

I think they saw what they needed to see from him already (player skate sessions and previous seasons). We did hear they've had their eyes on Cam Barker for a few seasons now.

Honestly, I think Gillis would rather prefer to keep Tanev and maybe ship out Ballard because of the cap.

@David_Strehle

VAN's signing of Cam Barker good sign for Flyers. Canucks had reportedly been requesting Dman for Luongo, should squelch rumors for good.

Another key is that it is a 48 game season in a very short period of time, he might get more games per capita than usual because of this.

Alberts - Barker would be a pretty huge bottom pairing!

Solid zero-risk signing that allows the Canucks to focus on bolstering their offense and future with any upcoming Luongo deal rather than trying to get back Dmen for depth.

Very good deal.

Vigneault on one-year Cam Barker deal: "Our guys felt he has a lot of potential. It reminds me of Chris Higgins going through four teams."

I'm confused. This guys is just a more skilled version of Alberts but prone to even more defensive lapses. Thought the farm would handle our 8-10 depth requirements.

Ballard going sooner than later?
