      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.

Annoying move tbh - Ellerby isn't a "cap dump" - he's an ELC making 700k. Can't see Tallon's angle here at all - and hate to see giveaways going to the SC Champs. bleck.

With 1m sunk in Santo in the minors, this is essentially a dump. Not all dumps are huge

Ellerby is LH, so is not going to bump out the guys we have on that side.... but he could bump Alberts and Barker if we could have found homes for them.

I guess we just don't need any more LH D and it was bad timing.

contrary to popular belief, mike gillis isn't all that interested in acquiring scraps from the leagues bottom-feeders.

the same reason he doesn't put in a waiver claim on every player whose name you recognize, or give up assets for failed prospects that people here are convinced have upside just because pierre mcguire raved about them during tsn's draft day coverage.

What's with all these 5th rounder's being dealt?

You'd think Ellerby could fetch more than that..

basically a 3 way trade.

NJ- loktionov

LAK- ellerby

FLA- 5th

florida kinda gets the shaft here. both those guys will probably help their teams more than that 5th rounder

He was taken 10th overall in 2007. People were saying the same things about Coburn when Philly acquired him back in the day. High pick, not performing to expectations, etc. Not saying that he'll turn out as good as Coburn, but I could easily foresee a Bryan Allen-esque career for Ellerby.

As for the Canucks, they wouldn't have any interest in him anyway. He's a WHL product.

I do not understand this.

Do you mean ready to play for Florida or ready to be traded (please)?

Hmmm... you might want to reconsider acting like such an arrogant dog-doodie. The facts actually suggest the opposite. He has made a career by picking up guys from the bottom of the heap where other teams haven't had interest.

Some scraps that Gillis picked up who are currently on our roster:

Tanev

Lapierre

Higgins

Volpatti

Weise

I don't understand what the hell Tallon is doing. A 5th round pick? Great trade for LA.

Low-risk, possible high-reward move for the Kings.

I guess it is basically a 3 way trade. LA just turned the 5th they got for Loktionov into a big, young defenseman. Nothing lost here, and lots of possibilities to gain.

You guys can rag on Ellerby all you want, but he's a steady D-man with the ability to physically punish opponents. He was a reliable defender on a team that featured offensive first defensemen such as: Campbell, Jovanovski, Kulikov and Kuba.

tanev isn't scraps, he was a late bloomer that other teams also would have found.

weise was the last roster cut made by one of the leagues best teams and they were really hoping he'd clear waivers.

volpatti is a depth forward signed out of college. not scraps at all.

higgins and lapierre are scraps, and also huge flukes that they panned out.

Can't believe Ellerby went for a 5th round pick.

What's Tallon thinking? LOL. He got ripped off.

Florida was probably going to waive Ellerby anyways. It's better to just trade the kid, so he can get a get a desperately needed change of scenery. 5th seems to be undervalue, but they are trading for potential. Still a big kid that can skate. Could very well end up on waivers later this year.
