      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.

[Rumor] - Loui Eriksson available?

Recommended Posts

As per TSN TradeCentre:

Star Search

After dealing captain Brenden Morrow, the Stars could soon be hanging the “For Sale” sign according to the New York Post's Larry Brooks.

While rental players such as Jaromir Jagr, Derek Roy and Eric Nystrom could likely be had, Brooks wonders if the Stars might truly start a rebuild by fielding offers on forward Loui Eriksson.

The 27-year-old Swede has proven he can produce - netting 25-plus in each of his last four seasons - and would net a tidy return by virtue of the three years remaining on his contract beyond 2013 at an affordable $4.25 million.

Perhaps the most underrated player in the league, I would love to see him play with the Sedins. Plus, his salary is the same as Booth's, I think he's a player that the Canucks should definitely go after.

He is part of the rebuild there, not the piece they would sacrifice. Larry Brooks pipe dream.

Morrow, Jagr, Robidas, Roy would net them enough return for a good rebuild there. They'll focus their rebuild on the 2 pieces they have which is Eriksson and Benn.

Always liked the way he played.. He would be a great addition at this point for sure, but Stars would probably ask a lot for him, like one our roster players we can't live without...

Wow, thats unreal that they would even allow a rumour like that get out.

Thats the kind of player you trade the farm for. If he moves, he'll be in Detroit.

If MG still thinks this team is a contender i would open with:

Raymond

Connauton

1st in '13

Then work from there. He instantly solidifies the 2nd line and can play wing or centre.

He's not going to move (as mentioned, part of the future in Dallas or should be) but I would easily do Booth, Raymond and Rodin for Eriksson and a 2nd. Great player.

I would send Nicklas Jensen for him. No joke. this is the moves you make to bring your team over the top. He also benefit playing with Kesler so win win. But we not looking for wingers so moot point.

Booth Rodin Raymond? Raymond, Connauton, 1st? LOL

How about Edler, Jensen and a 1st to start and maybe Dallas get's interested. Loui Ericksson with the Sedins = 40 goals minimum. He's been a near PPG player in Dallas, in Vancouver with the Sedins and on the PP he easily has 100pt potential.

I'd still be comfortable going into next season with a Juice-Hammer-Garr-Tanev top 4. Perhaps get a veteran D and 3rd line C in a goalie trade:

Luongo + 2nd for Goc, Kuba and Bjugstad. If it's feasible perhaps the Canucks keep some of Luongo's salary cap hit.

Don't see it happening.

He's only 27, consistent 60-70 points, amazing defensively for a winger (like Jere Lehtinen), and for 3 more years at $4.25 million? It'd take a lot to pry him out of Dallas. A lot.

Remember what we (CDC) were saying about James Neal a few seasons ago? Wasn't Neal virtually untouchable? A young rugged winger who could snipe? Didn't he and Matt Niskanen go for Alex Goligoski alone? If anything, I think Eriksson could be had for Edler.

THe thing is , our defence takes a huge hit, if we actually trade Edler. no joke. I'm not sure why the hate round Edler. At times hes a liablity, but most of the time he's actually not a liability. If you look at Drew Doughty, he is not doing any better then someone like Edler,
