      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.

[Trade] Tim Thomas an Islander

Recommended Posts

Islanders traded a conditional 2nd rounder for either 2014 or 2015.

This move doesn't make any sense. Why would they give such a high pick for Thomas? Did he say he would play this year? I would think that if anything, Boston would have to give the NYI a 2nd pick just to get out from the cap hit.

Wtf? Why would the Islanders do that?

He's not playing this year, and I doubt he plays for the Islanders next year.

So what do they do with Dipietro now?

maybe the islanders wanted thomas's cap hit to reach the floor and then they can suspend him. or its a conditional based on him signing an extension.

An actual smart move by Garth Snow?

They don't have to pay him, the cap hit doesn't affect them, and they get a 2nd rounder out of it.

Nice one.

Edit - My mistake. They gave up a 2nd rounder.

wow a 2nd round pick just to reach the floor get rid of all the people running the islanders and get some people that actually give a crap about the hockey this is a complete joke unless they somehow get thomas to play next year which i highly doubt

also they should just get rid of the floor already

NY Islanders, home of the washed up, former elite goaltenders!

Featuring former Sharks star Evgeni Nabokov, Boston College alum and 1st overall draft pick Rick Dipietro, and now, the Conn Smythe winning, tea partying, Chick-Fil-A loving Tim Thomas!

And Boston gets out from under his 5 million dollar cap hit.

Meaning they can make their team even more dominant. :sadno:

That team has to be one of the luckiest teams in the league.

Since Thomas won't resign anyway it doesn't cost the Isles anything.

I can imagine the rest of the East is pissed though as Boston now has cap space to use at the deadline....as if their roster wasn't good enough already.
