      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.

[Report] - Schroeder sent down

Recommended Posts

I hope Vandermeer is the guy getting put on waivers. Volpatti is a solid role player and I want to see what Barker can do when given a chance.

I doubt anyone will pick up Vandermeer.

I entirely disagree... the best time to put guys on waivers (if you don't want them claimed) is today. There will be dozens of other players on the wire at the same time as every team has to drop to the 23 man roster and it would be much less likely that it would be your guy picked up.

Putting someone on waivers a couple of days from now (or even tomorrow) risks other teams finding out a player on their roster sucks or someone gets hurt (expect a dozen groin pulls over the weekend) and they don't have the depth on their own farm teams.

I think this is a reasonable roster:

Sedin-Sedin-Burrows

Raymond-Ebbett-Kassian

Higgins-Lapierre-Hansen

Volpatti-Malhotra-Vandermeer

Weise

Bieksa-Hamhuis

Edler-Garrison

Ballard-Tanev

Barker-Alberts

You guys realize he can't be plucked off of waivers? It's the only move that makes sense. Ebbett would probably be scooped up. Send him down, and then call him back up shortly after.

This is what some of us have been trying to say. Waivers are the only reason Jordan was sent down. Any of the other bubble players would have been claimed.

This thread is so full of fail.

To the people freaking out about this and calling the move stupid, you need to relax. It has been said already in this thread but some people don't seem to read. This was entirely a move about getting down to 23 players. Very little doubt in my mind that Shroeder is back up with the big club sooner than later.

Schroeder came up and played well so he is ready so he will be slowly brought in to play at the pro level.

He is going to get his playing time and will be in the Canucks line up this season,probably much sooner than later.

However,with Manny,Lappy,Hank,Ebbett and Kes all ahead of Jordan it is tough for him to get quality minutes on the big club and that is not good for anybody.

I would rather see him get bigger and stronger down on the farm and then come up and play a full season next year.

I could see him come in with limited minutes ,playing second unit PP time.I am sure the club will not hurt his mental or physical development in this manner.

My guess is he will be a tweener this season.

Why send down Schroeder? we couldnt send down one of Volpatti/Weise/Malhotra and make room for him when we NEED secondary scoring? Dafuq is that?

I know its just a scrimmage last night, be he really had some chemisty with Kas and Mayray. We find a temporary 2nd line and then he gets sent down..

I thought the training camp is where players get to earn their spots, as far as im concerned, he has done enough to earn a spot on the starting lineup.

What has Malhotra, Volpatti done again? this is ridiculous.

WOW this is RIDICULOUS, Vancouver is such a dead zone for prospect. Really useless. Play the kid already.

Why on earth do we need so many d-men at the beginning of the year. One of Barker or Vandemeer should have gone down.

Bunch of idiots.

Just another reactionary response from someone looking to have their anti-AV bias confirmed for them without actually understanding the larger issues and reasons for sending Schroeder down.

Why do so many people post the first drivel that pops into their head without bothering to give the issues a moment of consideration?

I'm not going to tell you what to do, but you should probably feel very silly for making this post.

There's a 23 man roster limit and Schroeder is the only one not eligible for waivers. He will be back, you just need to go take a deep breath.

AV lovers are the worst. He's a failure of coach and can't develop prospects. How much more evidence do you need? How many more years of failure do you need to see? AV is a joke of a coach and should be canned ASAP!

Schroeder >>>>>>> Malhotra,Weise,Volpatti.

Those 3 make up up our 4th line. Thats not even in the top 6 of an AHL lineup let alone be on a team thats contending for the cup.

It will be comical watching that 4th line, disaster waiting to happen.
