      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] Islanders Place Dipietro on Waivers

Is there really any point in turning a DiPietro thread into another "Luongo is amazing"... "No Luongo Sucks" argument?

There are a lot of different places to post that which are a little more on topic.

I think if Dipetro hadn't gotten those injuries, he could have been a pretty good deal at a 4.5M cap hit.

Can't believe how many brutal mistakes have been made to my favourite franchise. Always wanted Dipietro to work out, but always knew he wouldn't when his injuries took over. Due to cap reasons, they probably won't buy him out. Hopefully things will somehow turn around for them when they move to Brooklyn.

i feel very sorry for him - yes he is going to make money, but at the end of the day, he doesnt get to do what he loves...play hockey

if he wasnt so injured, that contract would have looked genius

Looks like you're the one who's trying to spin things. Luongo bringing us to game seven is a fact not a spin. Now putting the entire blame on him for the meltdown and not on anyone else on the 'team'. Well that's the biggest spin going on here to me.

Lol DiPietro will be the albatross around that franchise's neck until he ends his career. No one is going to take him. I feel bad for the guy...

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.

I remember turning to my Dad and saying how Lu could end up like Dipietro and he was like "no because we're saving money"

I'd say the contract didn't pan out for us :lol:
