      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] Canucks claimed Tom Sestito

Recommended Posts

(From the Volpatti thread...)

Tom Sestito is on waivers. Would be nice if the Canucks picked him up. Looks like a good replacement for Volpatti.

watching his "highlights" on youtube. i am starting to think he needs to work to 3 things:

1: cleaner hits

2:Fighting

3:trash talking

Maybe kass can teach the fighting bit, Lappy teach the hitting and Burr and KJes teach the talking bit.... let tom do it and they con concentrate on scoring

not a big sestito fan... seems like the same kind of player like oreskevich and volpatti, except a lot of people are saying he usually loses his fights.

I'm content with this pick-up, had 4 points in 9 games with a team like CBJ in a season. Although that isn't his main role, I'd be glad if he is able to chip in.

I don't get it; why would you swap a guy who knows the system (the players, etc.) for one who doesn't?

OK. We're good for size. We need a center, a RH D and maybe a sharpshooter (if Jensen doesn't come/live up to the hype).

This guy will quickly become a fan favourite i assure you. Hes still young and a lot of the great fighters come into there own in there late twenties ect. He is a legit big body who can fight. Kassian got lucky in that fight if you watch it closely

so kesler gets hurts, meaning the canucks recall ebbett, then have to send volpatti down for a roster spot, gets claimed. we claim sestito. and then send ebbett back down.......???????????? makes little sense.

Hope Kass can teach him some fighting technique. He's big but doesn't have the same mean streak as some guys. Pretty decent hands though.

Always suspicious of a player put on waivers, but Tom Sestito looks capable of the role. have to see if he can keep up, but only 25 yrs old
