      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.

[Rumour] Ryan O'Reilly still in Russia, available soon?

or Booth+Mallet+2014 2nd

O'Reilly is actually a top 6 player so getting the most out of him would mean playing him in a top 6 role, either him or Kesler on the wing. I have a sinking feeling about booth, injury prone, didnt play much hockey during the lockout-head does not seem to be in the game at times. Also Raymond is looking real good and seems to have a much better shot than booth does.

I'd do it, I'd feel bad doing it as he was just selected in the last draft, but O'Reilly is a fantastic player.

for me, hansen has been our least noticeable forward I am just tiered of watching him get chance after chance and him just shooting the puck straight into the goalie's chest or pads.

Hansen looked a bit lost in the first few games, but he was fantastic last night. I think he just needed a few games to get in the swing of things. That can happen.

I really don't know if there's a deal to be had with Vancouver. There are other teams without a Kesler who have a glaring need for a player like O'Reilly, and would throw a ton at the Avs to get him.

For those saying that we could or should get him, you guys are truly wrong. Would it be nice to have him and have 4 awesome centers, Sedin, Kesler, OReilly, Lapierre. YES it would be absolutely awesome! But if he comes here it'll be like a Cody Hodgson situation. O'Reilly is a 2nd line center for sure even 1st on some teams. If he comes to VAN, he will be 3rd line center at best when Kesler returns. I would think he would know that and would not come here because of this.

I could see the Avs trading Stastny first, then offering O'Reilly a real deal. As it stands, they have too much money tied up in 2 centers to break the bank for a 3rd.

Too many centers...nice problem to have!

No, that's not fair at all.

Ballard holds nearly no value right now, Malhotra has his strengths, but is not worth his cap hit/role since his injury and is an upcoming UFA anyway, plus he has a NTC. Gaunce is a few years way at the very least and the Avs probably want somebody a bit more proven for RO'R, although Gaunce might be PART of a better deal as, the Avs currently have his brother Cameron in their system.

I don't know why people say Ballard has no value........have people ever considered that maybe MG thinks differently and just doesn't WANT to trade him right now? Ballard sure looks like a top 4 dman this season and not many teams have the kind of defence the Canucks do. He would be a top 4 on almost every other team in the league I bet. Would the Avs want him? Despite the fact that they could really use him, probably not. They don't want to pony up the dough for their top center so they probably wont take on a 4.2 million cap hit to trade him to a division rival.

Why would the avalanche care if they traded with us? They write those games off each year before the season starts anyways. If anything, its good to trade w/ us, it wont affect their standings at all.

Who'd Stastny play with at the 2010 Olympics? I know Kane-Kesler-Brown was a line but I forget who Stastny was with Wasn't he the #1 centre?

If they did move him, I'd think they'd move him to the East. Lupul-Stastny-Kessel? Clarke MacArthur (JVR takes over his spot on the Grabovski-Kulemin line), Colborne (University of Denver) & a pick?

Apparently things have gotten ugly and it's likely that the Avalanche trade O'reilly.

The asking price is reportedly a roster player and a prospect.

So for us it would likely cost Ballard and Gaunce. Ballard because the Avs need D, and Gaunce because he has the potential to be an O'reilly type player in the future; plus they already have his brother in their system.
