      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.

It was an interesting show.

But that said....I really like Schneider but nobody wants Lu's contract and you are not going to get much for him.

Wayy better off trading Schneids and getting an amazing return. Let Lu run the show.

Speculation. And obvious speculation at that.

It's clear we need a third line center. There's lots of cheaper options out there that will only cost us a pick. Gillis will find one.

Just finished watching TSN's Trade Deadline preview show and to recap:

Bob McKenzie:

There is no current market for goaltenders. Roberto Luongo, Ben Bishop, and Jonathan Bernier have been on the trade block since the start of the season and currently there are no teams showing significant interest in any of them. That may change based on indifferent play and injuries but it is unlikely.

Canucks are looking for a 3rd line centre with playoff experience who can provide an upgrade on Jordan Schroeder.

Potential Canucks trade bait suggested by Bob McKenzie include: Mason Raymond, David Booth, Keith Ballard, Cory Schneider, and Roberto Luongo.

It's unlikey the Canucks would find takers for Booth or Ballard since they have $4.2 Million cap hits with 2 years left on their contracts.

Canucks may have to get creative to find tradeable assests to fill their needs.

Darren Dreger:

Canucks are not 100% sold that Cory Schneider is ready to take over as the number one goaltender based on his play this season. Will likely keep both Luongo and Schneider until the summer and then reevaluate based on what happened in the playoffs.

Pierre LeBrun:

Canucks will not lower the asking price for Roberto Luongo between now and the deadline.

My personal take since the beginning is to keep both goalies.. See what happens in the playoffs and go from there..

Also, this should be AV's most telling season, if nothing works out, he's done.

So that means we are getting Ryan Johansen? I don't think he will get any cheaper. :emot-parrot:

Didnt we need a 3rd line centre last year at trade deadline? Gillis has had over a year to pick up a decent 3rd line centre and has failed to do so.

Canucks keep it up and they will be looking to unload contracts at the deadline for mild rebuild
