      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.

[Re-Signing] Jamie Benn re-signs in Dallas for 5-year contract

Recommended Posts

Another player better than Lupul, cost less than Lupul... sighs.... I feel bad for the Leafs sometimes, I want to see them do well but every time something good happens they just have to screw it up.

Isn't the tax rate far lower in Texas than almost anywhere else in North America? That could certainly factor into Benn's decision to sign at that amount.

Surprised with the value, it's a great signing for Dallas. I thought for sure he'd get 6M/year

He was never going anywhere.

Surprised it wasn't 6 - both salary and years.

We really should try and make a move for O'Reilly now. He'd be the ideal replacement for Kesler - essentially a Kesler 2.0. Trade Ballard for picks, sign this guy for around the same amount as Ballard and suddenly:

Sedin - Sedin - Kassian

Burrows - O'Reilly - Higgins

Hansen - Schroeder - Raymond

Weise - Malhotra - Lapierre

Edler - Garrison

Hamhuis - Bieksa

Tanev - Vandermeer

Barker

Alberts

Deep offence, deep centers and deep defence = cup
