      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.

COL should've let him go

When they say he has to be qualified at 6.5M does that mean a cap hit of 6.5M or can they give him a front loaded offer with the first year paying 6.5 and rest decreasing based on the max allowed in the new CBA giving a lower cap hit

I don't know what team is elite then.

By your description of "Elite" you just described the Carolina Hurricanes.

All of their wins are outside their division and they have won a cup.

Do you see the flaw in your logic?

On Avs matching O'Reilly offer, one industry source believes it's a given they'll trade him a year from now.

They were somewhat "elite" the year they won - but IMHO they were just lucky.

Agreed, they are not "elite" now.

Bruins and Hawks can be considered "elite" so far this year.

2011, the Canucks were somewhat "elite" - but not good enough - now if they had returned to the SCF the following year instead of losing in the first round - and won, then yes, I would consider them to be elite.

The Oilers in the 80's were Elite, the Islanders, the Canadians in the 70's...the Flyers for a couple of years...

Elite is a team that can repeat - repeat winning.

Yes, we won the "president's" trophy but not the ultimate prize.

Pretty obvious the Avs would match.

Does anyone still think MG should have done this? :lol:

I don't consider the Bruins elite at all. Put them in the West and they have a worse record.

They won 16 games, we won 15 games. It came down to a game 7 and they also lost in the 1st round last season.

You keep creating your own definition of "Elite".

How are the Hawks elite this year when they have lost to us in the 1st round and Phoenix in the 1st round last year.

By your latest definition that means they aren't elite, as they haven't repeated winning after 2010.

They haven't lost a game in regulation yet so they are the "elite" team so far.

My money is they lose in the first if not the 2nd round.

What have we done? Beat the Flames? We have only 4 wins against "playoff" teams at the moment - that is, teams that are currently in a playoff spot and 7 losses (I'm counting OT losses - cause they aren't wins).

Those "playoff teams have scored 42 goals against us out of the 52 we have let in.

We have only 32 against those teams.

We have out scored everyone else 22-10, but against other contenders, we are losing big time.

Do you see what I'm saying?

Not at all since you are contradicting yourself.

You said teams like the Oilers in the 80's and Islanders when they were piling up cups were elite because they repeatedly won.

Well Chicago hasn't done that, so they aren't elite. But you say they are because they are winning this year.

But the Canucks have won games this season against the Ducks and are 1-0-1 vs the Chicago Blackhawks. Those are the top 2 teams in the conference and the Canucks have a winning record against them.

I'll say this again, the Canucks are elite. Just like they were last year, the year before, and the year before that.

Avs got trolled. They had to match it.

Why isnt the Canucks doing something like this? Is MG still alive or on vacation?

We could've offersheeted Benn and erase any secondary scoring questions..

Dallas would've have matched but atleast its an attempt to make the team better, MG are you paying attention??

Still waiting on the 'bold moves' MG promised us when he was hired..

@SpectorsHockey

#Flames statement claims they tried to acquire O'Reilly via trade but Avs asking price was too steep.

lol..... ever heard of cap space?

And I hope you do realize that throwing offersheets at everyone very quickly sours relationships between GMs. I'm not sure you understand anything about what a general manager does.

Just doing what you did.

Anyone who thinks the Canucks have been an elite team the last 3 years and this one needs to go see a specialist...either that or they are just a bandwagon fan who doesn't know any different.

Reality check will come when the divisions change. Maybe that will force them to change.

What if the trade deadline falls before this time next year and they can't trade him for a calendar year? The trade deadline has been on the Feb. 27 before.
