      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.

Fair enough. I've just been thinking for a while that it would be a good idea to re-unite that Torres - Lapierre - Hansen line that was amazing in 2011. And remember they were our third line then, now they would be our fourth line. Talk about depth.

Would be sweet, but not at the price of Ballard, having that Ballard - Tanev pair is more valuable than having a good line that won't play enough to be worth what we lose IMO.

Also on another note, I find it interesting. Reading a thread on HF (In the Panthers section) about Weiss, and the fans seem kind of split, some want him to stay badly, some don't see it as much of a loss. Kind of helps give some perspective.

I think the only way Florida trades Weiss is if they feel Huberdeau is ready for top line minutes and Bjugstad can play 2nd/3rd line minutes.

Back to Torres for a minute. I agree that breaking up the Ballard - Tanev pair would be a bad idea, would a couple of picks at the trade deadline (2nd/3rd and a conditional 3rd/4th) be enough for Raffi?

I don't know why the Leafs would not trade Jake Gardiner, and maybe Frattin, and 2nds, 3rds, and or B grade prospects. They like Gardiner, but He seems to be on the bubble there, and He is a smallish defencemen, which really detracts from Defencemen's value. Unless they are a Markov or Niedermayer. I don't know where Gardiner would fit here though. Maybe Keith Ballard's spot, but Keith is a better Player now,and more physical.

How do you know? That's been the obvious choice for years, but it didn't stop Burke.

Gardiner would be a great addition..

meh, I don't think so.......grossly, grossly over rated. Good skater, but small, soft and one dimensional. He'd get eaten alive in the West......not to mention, where is he going to play? The d-corp is pretty locked up atm.

This is set t be one of the deepest drafts in a long time........the Leafs are trying to rebuild, they'll keep their picks

TSN stats put Jake Gardiner a 6.0ft, 184 lbs, which is small. Maybe He is just a Lukas Krajicek? Anaheim didn't mind letting Him go.

I do think the M.G. likes Him though.

The guy is 6'2 and still has time to fill out his weight - Kevin Bieksa is an inch shorter, once Gardiner fills out he'll be solid.

The old 'west is tougher than the east' theory is definitely becoming more and more obsolete as cup-winning teams are more & and more often teams filled with strong players.

Gardiner put up 30 points as a rookie and was nearly a PPG in the AHL before getting hurt this year. Incl. 9 goals/23 games.

Gardiner - Tanev as a bottom pairing would give the Canucks great depth and a long-term plan on defense.

I dont think a luongo deal is as "imminent" as most think. The media puts words in MG's mouth.

This season will determine who gets dealt. Cory is the starter cause they want to see how he fairs with the pressure of a starting goalie. Dont get me wrong all signs point to a pending Lu deal but if Cory doesnt have a good season, it could be him on the block, for a bigger return too.

It always seems to be a shock in the end with situations like this..

I know but the media puts twists on it. If Cory bombs and Lu has a stellar season then what happens?
