      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.

[Waivers] Zach Boychuck

55 posts in this topic

Placed On Waivers:

Zach Boychuk (CAR) Frazer McLaren (SJ) Cam Janssen (NJ)

per tsn icechips.

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/icechips/

boychuck has some good AHL numbers but hasnt been able to translate that over to the NHL yet. Would be surprised if clears. Can see a few teams taking a chance on a small 23 year old 1st round pick with good AHL numbers.

I doubt the canucks would look at another small player for the record.

He's going to get picked up way before the Canucks turn to decide....especially with a cap hit of 650K....

I bet he ends up with the Islanders or Columbus.

I remember the year he was drafted, some guy here was constantly pumping him up as a surefire star.

Then again, some guys use being on waivers as a motivating force to get their career on track. Daniel Briere is a good example. Or more recently, Grabner.

He won't fall through every single other team in the league to get to us. There are a number of teams that would take a flyer on him.

Pick him up, much better option than Ebbett. Doubt we get the chance though.

Boychuck is gone for sure, great job Carolina.

I think he's definitely getting picked up, great player, great potential. I wouldn't mind the Canucks snagging him.
