      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.

64 posts in this topic

College Hockey Players Available to Sign With Canucks?

1) Andrej Sustr Third-year D, Nebraska-Omaha

Age: 22. Height: 6-8. Weight: 225. Hometown: Plzen, Czech Rep.

The skinny: He has Zdeno Chara-type size, but is considered a project ... Came over to North America in 2009 to play for the Youngstown Phantoms of the USHL and also suited up for the Czech Republic at the 2010 world junior ... His offensive stats have improved every year at Nebraska-Omaha ... He attended prospect camps for both the Pittsburgh Penguins and Tampa Bay Lightning last summer ... Plenty of NHL teams will be in the mix this time around


2) Rylan Schwartz Fourth-year F, Colorado College

Age: 23. Height: 5-10. Weight: 205. Hometown: Wilcox, Sask.

The skinny: He's the older brother of St. Louis Blues 20-year-old rookie Jaden Schwartz ... Whispers a year go had the Blues and Calgary Flames interested in signing Rylan, but he decided to return for his senior season ... He attended prospects camps in St. Louis and with the San Jose Sharks last summer ... Without his brother for the first time in two seasons, Rylan already has checked in with a career-high 42 points in 33 games this year ... Although last season, he scored 23 goals in 35 games, he's more of a playmaker than goal scorer.

3) Antoine Laganiere Fourth-year F, Yale

Age: 22. Height: 6-4. Weight: 215. Hometown: Ile-Cadieux, Que.

The skinny: Plenty of NHL scouts have visited Yale's Ingalls Rink this season and have come away impressed with his "pro-type body" and how much his skating has improved during his time at Yale... He attended prospect camps for the Edmonton Oilers and Penguins last summer and with the Vancouver Canucks in 2011 ... He helped the Chateauguay Patriots Midget AAA win the 2005-06 provincial Quebec title and the Patriots finished third at the Telus Cup national championship.

4) Ryan Walters Third-year F, Nebraska-Omaha

Age: 21. Height: 6-0. Weight: 196. Hometown: Rosemount, Minn.

The skinny: He is a candidate for the Hobey Baker Award, which is presented to the top player in NCAA hockey ... He has scored as many goals (21) and more points (49) this season than his first two years of U.S. college hockey combined ... He credits his vast improvement to a new off-season training regimen in the gym and on-ice sessions with a skating coach ... He is considered an intelligent player who performs well in all three zones of the rink.
