      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.

Sauve has been passed by Polasek, Andersson, Connauton and Tanev in the depth chart; he will be passed by Corrado. With Price and Tommernes as being probably signed (as they will lose their rights) - that puts Sauve against ALL those players for depth positions behind Bieksa, Hamhuis, Garrison and Edler (PLUS the possibility of Sustr and Dekayser)

Sauve is doing much better in Kalamazoo, and getting his confidence back. I can see him having a bounce back year in Chicago next season, but he'll never be more than a 5/6 pairing. Sustr has far more potential than any of the guys you mentioned mainly due to his size and reach. Guys like Polasek, Andersson, Price, and Tommernes come along every year. 6'8 guys that can skate and score do not.

Like I said, even a goal like that needs luck in the form of the defenders not getting a stick on the puck, and the goalie biting on the play.

The Sedins don't score a goal like that 9 times out of 10 in practice, let alone in a game situation. So I really don't see the difference.

You act like the only difference between a skilled goal and a lucky goal is the manner in which it's scored. If that were true, you could replace Stamkos with any player in that situation and they should score. But I think we both know that's not true.

Lucky or not, highlight reel goals like all 3 of these need a highly skilled player involved.

I don't believe that he has been passed by Polasek and Connuaton. I think they just want him to get his confidence back in the ECHL after struggling with an injury early on. And he's now starting to develop his offensive game, which scouts had always hoped would happen.

Connauton hasn't really made any progress this year. From the games I've watched, his defensive game is still lacking, and may keep him from ever being a full time NHLer. And now his offensive game seems to be drying up too.

Polasek more or less brings what Sauve brings, except Sauve is a much smoother skater, and is better in his own end.

With the lack of depth we have for D-prospects, there's no way we let go of one we drafted only 4 years ago. Alot of these guys are not gonna pan out, so the more we have, the higher the odds are that we have at least one stud in the group.

As a generalized statement we have skilled guys on D.

With all that skill we still lack any strong puck rushing defender with speed and puck handling skills. (Our skill is making the first pass, but teams are stacking the neutral zone because they know the pass is coming...).Someone who can break pressure blowing past a fore-check; busting into the offensive zone on the power play. (I hate relying on that stupid srop back pass).

I suppose its too much to expect that guy as a college free agent?

We have skilled guys, what we need is role players. This guy will fill a role for us in the near future.

And he does have skill. His skill is roughing up guys, winning faceoffs, and playing sound defensive hockey.

the more college FAs GMMG can attract, the more willing he will be to trade draft picks.

I like it, but am really hoping this team doesnt follow the footsteps of the Calgary Flames, and cuts bait before its too late.
