      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.

A couple things.

lol at people handing the cup to Pitt, I highly doubt they win. They have the same problems as last year. Goal scoring was never a problem and their defence and goaltending hasn't really improved.

Secondly they can fit it under the cap because it only costs $2 million to rent Iggy for the rest of year.

I'll laugh when they are out. Not enough time for this team to get IMO.

Wow! I go to bed and Iggy is a hated Bruin, I wake up and he's a much loved Penguin! This is great news. I don't know about others on this board, but there are only a few teams I like in this league: Nucks, Habs, and Penguins. Grew up in Van, live in Montreal, and common, Sid the Kid!

Iggy was the only good thing going with the Flambays. I have hated for years what they have done to him with not making a team a contender for him. He is one of, if not THE classiest guys in the NHL and to know that he has the best chance now to win a cup just like Bourque did with Colorado is awesome. What a lineup the Penguins have now!!!!

And to Aaron Ward... ROFL LMAO LOL OMG you're an idiot!

Class act, lot of leadership in that dressing room right now, nice to see Iggy getting a shot with a legit contender.

Shero has the pills to go all in, no guarantees though Ray, but bringing in the right pieces to beat the Bruins.

Aaron Ward: And the award for best General Manager of the Year goes to.... Jay Feaster! Oh... haha very funny [looks around the stage smiling to see who played the joke on him, as the crowd laughs histerically]

[A young man walks out onto the stage smiling towards the audience and hands Aaron Ward another envelope]

[With a beet red face and an embarrassed looking smile, Aaron Ward opens the second envelop]

Aaron Ward: and the award goes to... Peter Chiarelli! Ok, COMMON! You guys told me before I came out here that the award is going to Ray Shero, this isn't funny anymore!

[says quietly to himself] Why do I always read whatever is written? Idiot, Wardsy!

[With a booming, and clearly irritated, voice into the microphone]

The award goes to Ray Shero.

[He walks off the stage with his head down and then stops at the edge of the stage and yells]

THEY TOLD ME IT WAS A DONE DEAL!

So, the Penguins have acquired three serious deadline pieces and given up one of their top 10 prospects?

How is this possible? Shero must be really convincing at selling his prospects. Can't believe the Flames could not pry even one of the Pens touted defense prospects in a deal for their hall of fame captain.

Flames fans have a right to be upset with this return.

haha good job Pits! Must have outbid Boston at the last minute when the original trade leaked? Anyway I would like to congratulate the Penguins first hand on their 2013 Stanley Cup.

wow the Pens sure our gambling on a deep run this year (although they really didn't give up too much other than Morrow and a few high draft picks) with a lineup like:

Kunitz- Corsby- Ignila

Neal-Malkin-Dupuis

Morrow-Sutter-Bennett

Cooke-Kennedy-Adams

Glass

LeTang-Martin

Niskanen-Orpik

Murray-Despres

They are on paper pretty hard to beat but we'll see what happens in the playoffs. Part of me thinks the players may get over confident and be set up to fail.
