      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 would be 1st in the league for power plays if we occasionally sent out Burrow-Ribeiro-Lapierre. Probably the 3 most hated french players in the league.

I love how no one wants "soft" players, only goons, then whine when goons are useless. The Canucks are a team that gets by on talent, not on crashing around. Trying to force goons into the top six isn't going to magically fix the offense - good offensive players will.

He's on the downside of his career despite how he's playing right now.

I'd pass on him.

Not to mention he's soft as baby doo-doo.

Take his skillset and put him with kesler and that bolsters the top 6 greatly which is what we need. Teams going to win the cup will put aside his diving which im not sure if he still does.

Say a team like chicago gets him... That would make them that much harder to defeat, all depends on their goalies

Theres no harm in calling and seeing what the asking price is, if its a 1st rounder and a prospect that is steep, maybe a 2014 1st but doubt they bite on that

In the end, he is what we need but doubt we get him

At least he's a center...

In an ideal world, Kesler would accept this and become our 3rd line center. But Canucks World is usually not ideal.

Why is everyone opposed to Kelser moving to the wing? The way he's been playing since his 41 goal year is more suited for the wing anyway.

people seem to forget Ribeiro has a great shot and can pick corners. Haven't people on this board been whining about the Canucks having no snipers on the team?

I've got the guy in my hockey pool and even on a under-performing Capitals team he's producing. Well, the Canucks are under-performing too.

Kesler can still pop in goals on the powerplay with the twins.

Booth-Ribeiro-Kesler

If Kesler doesn't want to play wing, he can prove that he belongs at center

Keep in mind that he will be a UFA next year. If MG is going for this guy hope we don't give up too much. I had this guy in my hockey pool once and he was so streaky it aren't funny. When he is so bad and I decided to bench him he gets 3 points, that kind of thing.

Why rent a diver we have enough of them under contract now. I watched Ribero in a game this year and he got high sticked and proceeded to meltdown the whole game, friggin useless the whole game after that. How would he do on the Canucks being bullied around when the reffs put away their whistles, be floppin all over the ice.
