      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.

[Speculation] Booth either getting bought out or traded

Recommended Posts

On TSN radio right now, Bob McKenzie talking about Booth. Suggesting he'll be traded so the Canucks will bring I'm Versteeg - if no one will take him he's apparently candidate for an amnesty buyout.

Update: Forgot one thing - Bobby Mac also said that the Canucks are willing to move any picks in the draft, and only the top prospects are untouchable

Will post a recording/source later if I can, but I'm not the only one who heard it - @Taj1944 is live tweeting it at the moment

If true we all know BMac is legit but even he makes speculations. I think a lot of teams are looking at Versteeg. But if I am not mistaken Versteeg is good friends with some players on Vancouver.

Ballard and Booth would be my 2 main guesses. We have too many left handed D and LW. Our only natural RW are Hansen and the plug Weise. (Although, Burrows has done well at RW).

Anaheim is loaded with RWs ahaha.

I really like the idea of getting Versteeg. However I do not want us to trade away our draft picks. We need to start building up our prospect pool and this draft is the ideal time to do that. This draft is INSANELY deep. So deep that I had to put insanely in caps. That's how deep it is.

I care infinately less about Booth "showing a good jump" than actually putting the fracking puck in the net even once in a while.

Sounds like all Bobby is doing is speculating as is the norm for him when it comes to the Nucks.

The buyout candidates haven't changed since the summer. It's always been Ballard or Booth or both, or whichever of the two they can't gift away.

Garrison at least gets minutes, GPG ain't too bad, +/- is nice, 2nd assists (a la Hamhuis) are wanting but that will come. A year behind him and a full training camp should clear up hiccups in his D zone breakout game.

Not sure about Versteeg. The guy has moved an awful lot for a relatively young player.
