      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] Panthers can't afford Weiss, looking to trade him

Recommended Posts

Maybe the reason they can't afford him is because they will be getting an expensive goalie sometime soon

Please MG no, just no......you have gone to the high priced Florida yard sale a couple of times now and for whatever reason those guys just don't seem to bring their same game here. Ballard, Booth, Garrison, etc.

That link also speculates that the Panthers could be for sale again.

I don't know if that eliminates the possibility of Luongo deal - he could help sell tickets.

But with Philly and Washington on the hotseat, things are looking good for MG.

Garrison leads the Canucks right now with a +3.

I have no problem with the deals the Canucks have cut with the Panthers.

Luongol, Jovanovski, Higgins, Garrison...

I think people over-state what was given up for Ballard and Booth. Those deals are nowhere near as bad as many people on CDC suggest.

As for Booth, he has not played up to expectations at all and looks pretty average with Kesler.

When Booth plays like he can he is worth close to his salary, he has the ability to take over games. To bad he keeps getting injured. Ballard has looked great this year (Better than Bieska). The Tanev-Ballard tandem is one of the best third pairing in the league. Garrison still looks uncomfortable in our system but it is easy to see how he was so good last year. I wouldn't mind getting Weiss along with a prospect for Lu. They may just not be able to pay Weiss the amount of money he wants. Maybe with a contender Weiss would re sign for less with us.

Weiss would be a great aquisition, but Fla would want too much for him. Don't want the Nucks to give up players/draft picks/good prospects for an UFA.

Garrison looks fine :picard:

Booth also hasn't played yet this season, and he could get more comfortable as time goes on.

Booth scored at a 23 goal pace with Vancouver. Not bad for a second line player coming to a new team in a new conference, battling two separate injuries, has teammates who don't know how to pass and limited pp time.

Put Booth with the Sedins and give him 3 minutes of pp time per game and he scores 35-40. Kesler was awful last season. He had 28 ESP in in 1,123 minutes. Booth had 22 ESP in 814 minutes. This means Kesler got an ESP for every 41 minutes of ice time, whereas Booth had one for every 37 minutes of ice time. Booth's number also includes his 1 point in 6 games with Florida, so it would likely be around 1 point in every 35 minutes with Vancouver.

What this means is, they wont be able to afford what he's going to want as a UFA.
