      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.

Probably grasping at the last straw before buyout. Doubt anyone takes him. we're having a tough enough time moving an all star thats playing some of his best hockey right now because of the length. Question mark goalie at 2.75?? would still be a bad move for any team.

I guess this might make them for from speculated possible player to a serious player in luongo/schneider discussions. Garth snow makes alot of head scratcher moves too, this is very good news for us haha. Being a former goalie you would think he might have a higher regard and appreciation for lou than most other gm's as well.

Probably one of the worst 1st overall picks of all time + worst contract of all time.

I'm surprised that they don't just send him home so that he doesn't get hurt again which would allow for a buyout in the summer.

My gut for a long time now was the Islanders trying trade Dipietro to make way for Luongo.

Niño coming back plus others?

Wasn't Thomas' contract $0 impact for NYI but helped with the cap floor?

Saving 33% on DiPetro is still saving 33% that can be spent elsewhere.

66% wasted is still bad.

More than any other team making a Luongo trade with NYI is exciting.

Snow and Wang are so unpredictable they might give us a dream trade.

With the new CBA, Islanders can park DiPietro in the AHL and still get most of his cap hit ($3.6M) applied to their books.

Also, when he's injured, his salary's covered by insurance. So there's no reason for the Isles to buy him out.

heh, I love that it's 'when' he's injured, not 'if'

This is the ridiculous contract that MG should have taken note of before signing Luongo to his absurdly large contract, IMO. This is an example of what happens when a player signs a massive deal and quite frankly busts, injuries notwithstanding.
