      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.

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.

Once again LOL to all the people saying players of this ilk aren't wanted anymore.

Third team down the line grabbed him.

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.
