      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.

We took Pinizzotto from the caps so it's basically like we traded Volpatti for him I guess.... Wish we still had both doe...

Yup, too bad he got claimed. He and his agent noted he hadn't heard much interest from the Caps before but had heard interest from some other teams, so he was surprised they claimed him.

Source confirms Oilers were one of several teams who had a claim in on Volpatti. Caps lower in standings, they got him.

Caps only other established fighter currently playing is Erskine, so not too surprising.

This is going to come back and bite the Canucks in the butt. Horrible decision making by Gillis.

There's a reason they're 3rd down the line and Aaron Volpatti being seen as an improvement is that reason...

maybe Volpatti is included to a trade coming and the team that wants him cant clear roster for him at the moment, so if they were to acquire him from waiver, Volpatti goes straight to the minors.

i bet canucks make a trade with either columbus, buffalo, washington, or florida.

Now watch Vancouver make a trade with washington.

I bet original trade was Volpatti + Luongo for X but since washington wanted volpatti on their farm team , Van had to put him on waivers for them so when they pick him up he goes straight to the minors. It'll buy washington some time to make room for him

Nice pick up for the Caps. And this should help Gillis soften the team up for a brisk spring ass whupping!

Except that's not how it works. They claimed him to play with the big club, if they want him in the minors, they would have to waive him again.

:lol: Good one. Its pretty obvious you don't have a clue who Volpatti is. He was one of our best physical 4th liners who can chip in a goal here and there.
