      BOARD SPECIFIC RULES   02/05/2016

      These are board specific rules, meant to try to make the Trades and Free Agent Signings forum better for everyone. YOU MUST READ AND ABIDE BY THESE FORUM RULES.

      1. If an event happens, wait a few minutes before posting, in all likelihood, someone has already posted it. We don't want numerous threads on the same event, so please search before posting.

      2. Please provide a clearly identifiable topic title for your thread so that user's can search for and find the appropriate thread easily. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate. This is to help avoid duplicate threads and to make searching easier. For any and all comments, please use the Topic Description box instead of the title.

      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 that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriately label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].

      3. All trades, signings, rumours 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.

      The following are NOT considered valid sources: 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
      Hockeybuzz, Spector's Hockey and The Fourth Period are currently acceptable sources.

      The NHL Line, Brochu is Hockey and NHL Hockey News by saint Pako are currently invalid sources.

      4. Clearly misrepresenting the contents of your thread or posting false Trades/Signings/Acquisitions to send the forum into a frenzy will be taken very seriously and will result in an automatic suspension.

      5. Please put all proposals into the proposals forum and NOT this forum. Proposals found in this forum will be moved or deleted without warning.

      6. Please report any threads or messages that violate these or other board rules to the administrators or moderators() Do not respond by posting spammy messages such as 'IBTL', and 'LOCK AND BAN', or by attacking other users. The report button is located to the bottom left of every post.

      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM one of the Moderators or Administrators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

The Pens have $8.5M in cap space as well but I doubt they do that straight up. They could use a good goaltending prospect though:

To Pitt - Ballard and Cannata

To Van - Despres and 2nd

I guess the Pens wouldn't mind trading one of their better D prospects and a solid pick in a deep draft for a vastly overpaid d-man and journeyman goaltender. Why not right?

I can see Despres getting dealt, but it sure as hell won't be for that package. He will probably be part of a package deal to get someone like Iginla.

If anything they should be looking to shore up on mobile defensive defensemen... they were lit up when they tried to gun with the Flyers last season whereas they were alright with their forward crop (though they had Sullivan)

Then again,

Kunitz - Crosby - Kessel

Neal - Malkin - Dupuis

would make for an epic match-up against the Rangers (which I'd say NY still has the upper hand with King Hank in net)

Nash - Richards - Gaborik

Hagelin - Stepan - Callahan

and don't forget about the Flyers' forwards, as well as the Bruins' overall depth. Boy the East will be tough to win.
