      BOARD SPECIFIC RULES   02/05/2016

      These are board specific rules, meant to try to make the Trades and Free Agent Signings forum better for everyone. YOU MUST READ AND ABIDE BY THESE FORUM RULES.

      1. If an event happens, wait a few minutes before posting, in all likelihood, someone has already posted it. We don't want numerous threads on the same event, so please search before posting.

      2. Please provide a clearly identifiable topic title for your thread so that user's can search for and find the appropriate thread easily. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate. This is to help avoid duplicate threads and to make searching easier. For any and all comments, please use the Topic Description box instead of the title.

      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 that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriately label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].

      3. All trades, signings, rumours 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.

      The following are NOT considered valid sources: 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
      Hockeybuzz, Spector's Hockey and The Fourth Period are currently acceptable sources.

      The NHL Line, Brochu is Hockey and NHL Hockey News by saint Pako are currently invalid sources.

      4. Clearly misrepresenting the contents of your thread or posting false Trades/Signings/Acquisitions to send the forum into a frenzy will be taken very seriously and will result in an automatic suspension.

      5. Please put all proposals into the proposals forum and NOT this forum. Proposals found in this forum will be moved or deleted without warning.

      6. Please report any threads or messages that violate these or other board rules to the administrators or moderators() Do not respond by posting spammy messages such as 'IBTL', and 'LOCK AND BAN', or by attacking other users. The report button is located to the bottom left of every post.

      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM one of the Moderators or Administrators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

(Waivers) Multiple players on waivers

70 posts in this topic

Wishart or Hickey might be worth a gamble for some team. Both are fairly young former 1st round pick D who have played alright in the AHL, with Wishart having some unspectacular time in the NHL.

I think both could develop a bit more and be bottom 6 guys.

Elliotte Friedman@FriedgeHNIC

Think Islanders claimed another D -- Thomas Hickey from LA

Good claim for them. He should help out nicely, and in a few years they could have a defense featuring:

Hamonic - de Haan

Reinhart - Hickey

Darren Dreger@DarrenDreger

Waivers: Nsh claimed Rich Clune from LA; NYI claimed Thomas Hickey from LA.

I wouldn't mind giving Pat Maroon a shot. 6'4, 225 lbs, physical, averaged a ppg in the AHL and is still fairly young at 24. The fact he has played 4 pro seasons and has only dressed for 2 NHL games is a bit discouraging, and I have heard he has issues with skating.

Here is a good article about Maroon:

Higgins Lapierre Hansen

Raymond Malhotra Weise

Maroon Schroeder Kassian

Haha cringeworthy forward lineup without Kes and Booth

I remember when people on here were really high on Brett Sonne.

How far he's fallen.

I'd like to see the Canucks go after Luke Gazdic. A young, big, tough kid who has some decent hockey skills and knows his role and will defend his teamates at all costs and who can be groomed to be a serviceable fourth line player. Doubt it will happen but I'd rather have a young guy like Gazdic around than a guy like Desbiens who's older and isn't going to get any better. Winnipeg just picked up a very similar player in Peluso and they lack team toughness just like the Canucks.
