      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.

MG will have to make some sneaky trades if he wants the Canucks to win a Cup this season. When you look back at Cup winners, the majority of them make a move that pays off big for them in the playoffs. Recchi and Richards/Carter are two great recent examples.

We have a unique opportunity where we can put Booth on LTIR so his cap doesn't count, and along with Malhotra that's 6-7 million off the books to play with. MG can throw around picks for an expensive player in that case, and come Game 1, both Booth (and maybe even Malhotra) can hit the ice and it won't affect our team.

Chicago blasted the NHL 3 years ago when they won this way - they were well over the cap come playoff time and they absolutely dominated the playoffs. Despite the fire sale at the end of the year, they had a cup. That was genius management by their GM.

Also, there is no way Malhotra plays for us again, and players coming back might affect the team in chemistry, just as the player in trade could, and that's a little more disruptive in a compressed season like this with much less time between the deadline and the playoffs.

Could the Pen's trade be a smart ploy by the Pens to up the Market for stud pickups? If the Pen's trade makes sellers demand high prices, other Cup contenders will either have to overpay for them, or not acquire them. I doubt the Pens would trade one of their better prospects, but you never know...

I have been saying this all along.

this will be the slowest trade deadline in the history of any sport.

I cannot think of a more unfavourable environment for trading.

Some of the big UFA's might go

But

It is going to be hard for any team to give up a 1st this year with how deep the draft is.

I like it when big deals get done a day or two before deadline day. It's a big screw you to tsn and sportsnet.

Chicago, Boston, and Ducks are probably the next to make a trade deadline acquisition........both Chicago and ducks need a number 2 center

Usually when they say it will be busy it's a stinker, but when they think it'll be quiet some deals are made... Hope the latter is the case!
