      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.

I am a fan of Clowe, especially his playoff production. As we have seen San Jose has generally crumbled under the pressure of the playoffs. Stars like Marleau and Thornton and Heatley have seen their production slowed considerably after the reg season. Clowe however had 9 points in 13 games in 07-08. In 09-10 he had 10 points in 15 games and in 10-11 he had 15 points in 17 games. He is the type of guy that if we can acquire at a reasonable price can help push for a run. His goal scoring drought may be a blessing in disguise as his value may have dropped because of it.

It's a simple solution. Offer a conditional 1st.

If we don't re-sign him it becomes a 2nd. If we do then it is worth the 1st round pick.

Package in any one of our prospects other than Jensen, Gaunce, Corrado, and Lack to sweeten the deal.

^ A conditional first might be worth it, I guess. Conditional 1st rounder + Rodin/some other prospect I don't really care about.

Then go and get Torres. I bet you Torres would love to come back here.

I find it hard to believe at this point we are even thinking about moving Jordan Schroeder. He could turn into a 70 point playmaking center within 2 years.

42 to 65 pts in each of his past 4 seasons. 6'2 225. If we had a good shot at re-signing him I'd do it. How many of our first round picks actually play for us?

2003- Ryan Kesler

2004- Cory Schneider

2005 - Luc Bourdon played for us, and probably still would be right now, r.i.p

2006 - Michael Grabner played for us, and is still a legitimate sniper in the NHL

2007 -

2008 - Cody Hodgson

2009- Jordan Schroeder

2010 -

2011- Niklas Jensen, will definetly be on the team, even as early as next year

2012 - Brendan Gaunce, will be on the team in the next 2-3 years almost guaranteed

As far as Im concered thats 8 out of 10 every day nhler's we've drafted in the first round ( assuming Jensen/Gaunce in the future). You trade a first round pick for a guy like Bobby Ryan, not a soon to be UFA without a single goal this season.

Clowe would be nice but giving away Jensen, Gaunce, Corrado, Schroeder or Lack is a no. Maybe we can get Ott also and a have 3rd line of Clowe-Ott-Kassain. Legit 3rd line, hits, fights, energy and can score.

Maybe a 2nd and conditional 2nd plus a mid level prospect (Rodin) for Clowe?

Or acquire a first and a prospect from a goalie trade and trade our first (conditional) plus a prospect for Clowe?

Sedin-Sedin-Kassian

Clowe-Kesler-Burrows

Raymond-Schroeder-Hansen

Higgins-Lapierre-Weise(Booth)

I'd like Clowe on our team...But it's hard to understand how many peoples are on baord at this price.

Iginla was 1st and 2 prospects, right? That was the rumor.

Because it feels like people are far more on board with Clowe at 1st and prospect than Iginla at a first and 2. I realize Clowes five years younger...but even then Iggy had, I don't know, about 500 more points than clowe does at 30/31...and Iginla is 1 season removed from 86 pts, and had 67 last year. Clowe at most has ever had 62...

My point is neither to advocate for Iginla or against Clowe - it just seems odd how people are valuing players.

I think both would be good, but mortgaging anything worthwhile for either without getting them signed to something reasonable for a couple more years would be useless at this stage.
