      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.

He could, if squeezed, do exactly as you've suggested. I wonder how likely it would be, though.

I'm shocked to have found out the team with the worst goals against is the Sabres. 46 goals against. Wow!

After tonight the Capitals could be tied with them.

You really shouldn't be that shocked if you look at their centres. Ennis? Hodgson? Talk about nightmare matchups against centres like Malkin, Crosby, Giroux, Lecavalier, Stamkos, Bergeron, Krejci, B. Richards, E. Staal, J. Staal etc etc.

On top of that they have an over the hill Regher and four offensive defencemen (Myers, Ehrhoff, Leopold, Sulzer). Sekera is the only guy that can play a reliable two-way game. Miller has been left out to dry all year.

you look at o reillys stats, look identical to gaunce, and with his size im surprised we didnt take a chance on him drafting #22 overall, guess MG thought shredder was gonna be a st. louis type player or something

Gradin was apparently pushing Gillis to take Rodin in the first round, but Gillis couldn't pass on Schroeder because he was originally projected as a top 10-15 pick.

Gradin ended up getting Rodin in the second round anyways. And so far that pick isn't looking as promising as I once thought.

ya he sounded like he was gonna turn into something special.

also just noticed, brouwer drafted 7th round. i mean a whl guy with size 49 pts in 72gp. We dont take a flyer on someone with his size that late? instead in round 4 we take Andrew Sarauer, 5th round mike brown, 6th round Julien Ellis. Gee those guys sure turned into something, wish we never traded brown, but the other two lol great drafting i tell ya. The late rounds is where you have to find a gem if ur lucky like detroit or someone who can pan out like brouwer. instead we draft duds later on.

I truly feel our scouting staff needs to be overhauled

why did we use to have 9 rounds and now only 7 for drafting?

Another laugher for both WSH and FLA neither goalie could stop a puck-teams in denial about their goaltending or the importance of goaltending in winning in the NHL. Holtby, Clemmensen, Theodore would make great AHL tenders, Neuvirth is a solid back up

Well; Thanks for the response. My defence is I played several media interviews which referenced Lou clearly inferring he wanted out. Me, i thought / still think that a guy asking out, lets use not happy versus pouting, who just got a fat contract is putting us on the spot for his own agenda. I cut the slant on trash talk.

If u have a reference to this Galagher article, I'm out of the country, I would appreciate it? Your saying it will say Hodgson's agent planted it, not just that Galagher reported it and kept his source private?

Personally I heard lots of speculation he wanted out. But there were lots of concepts as to why...

Ok Surfer - you asked a question that I'll answer, but this is pretty much the last I care to engage on this.

I don't see what Gallagher wrote regarding demands to be traded (in December) as a result of conversations with Hodgson's agent to be "kept behind closed doors." That context was initiated entirely by the player's representation.

Luo was scrummed after the playoff loss and asked to waive in traditional Vancouver troll-media fashion - he answered diplomatically - and regardless, what has happened was simply in the cards; it's not of Luongo's doing. The Canucks have two starters - everyone knows this - to try to blame Luongo for 'handcuffing' the Canucks is slanted.

If you want to protest about eliciting the type of responses you have, perhaps you should avoid the kind of inflammatory comments regarding "challenged manhood", "pouting" etc that you persist with. You're trash-talking - it's a common thing in hockey - but in some people's eyes it's borderline trolling given you can't back any of it up with actual comments or context. I'm not going to protest that you aren't being polite enough, but you coming back and whining about the response is pretty weak.

beauty goaltending display by holtby- 1st, 3rd, 5th goals are not goals an NHL goaltender should give up...clemensen just wow, not sure why he got the full 60min...maybe because it is theodore on the bench.

This was just hysterical that both teams are moving forward with this goaltending mwahahahhahahahah

Mean while Luongo plays stellar in another Canucks victory.

I love it.

Now I'm by no means agreeing with Damien here, but I'm sorry, a CANUCKS fan is calling a fanbase a joke? You guys have the best goalie you've ever had and likely will ever have and you're constantly calling for his head and burned down your city after losing a game, but we're the joke?

Did you watch Afterhours? Luongo pretty clearly said that Schneider has made him better - that his calmness and poise has rubbed off. They've made each other better - simple as that. No need to keep beating this Schneider vs Luongo drum - they're team-mates, they both want to play and win, and they aren't small enough to envy each other's strengths.
