      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.

Alexei Kovalev's one-year contract with FLA is worth $1M plus some GP bonuses. Signing today, will be on 23-man roster.

Awesome. Glad the guy is still in the league and not with the Canucks. Love watching him play when he feels like it, but would get to frustrated when he didn't feel like it if he was a Nuck.

As a Jets fan, I actually get excited when Washington, Carolina, Florida, and Tampa Bay improve their rosters. This is the time for the Jets to tank and stock up on draft picks. They are guaranteed sellouts for the first 3-5 years, so finishing last in their division is a good idea; and although Kovalev is only a shadow of his former self, he is still someone to keep your eye on. With the additions that Carolina made this season, as well as the Caps with Robiero, I see the Jets fighting it out for last place in their conference with the Lightning. Their goaltending is a huge question mark. They will either destroy teams with their offense, or tank because of questionable goaltending.

In before "LUONGO, RAYMOND FOR KOVALEV, GUDBRANSON AT THE DEADLINE"!!!

Lol he would be a good rental player for the playoffs though, good motivation for him, one last crack at the cup... Lol

Edit: never mind, just read that he won the cup before... 94, on the rangers :(

Not a fan of the move for Florida. 1 goal in 22 KHL games last year, 2 goals in 20 games with the Pens the year before. Not to mention his lazy reputation.

3 points in his first game. Already showing chemistry with Huberdeau.

So far, so good for Florida!

I would really have enjoyed Kovalev had we had the foresight (and ability, maybe he has a partner in S Beach?) to give him a shot.

Could have really made a difference as a passer for either a Kesler line or as an option with the Sedin's!
