      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.

(Waivers) Multiple players on waivers

Recommended Posts

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:


Sedin Sedin Burrows

Higgins Lapierre Hansen

Raymond Malhotra Weise

Maroon Schroeder Kassian

Haha cringeworthy forward lineup without Kes and Booth

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.
