      BOARD SPECIFIC RULES   02/05/2016

      These are board specific rules, meant to try to make the Trades and Free Agent Signings forum better for everyone. YOU MUST READ AND ABIDE BY THESE FORUM RULES.

      1. If an event happens, wait a few minutes before posting, in all likelihood, someone has already posted it. We don't want numerous threads on the same event, so please search before posting.

      2. Please provide a clearly identifiable topic title for your thread so that user's can search for and find the appropriate thread easily. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate. This is to help avoid duplicate threads and to make searching easier. For any and all comments, please use the Topic Description box instead of the title.

      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 that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriately label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].

      3. All trades, signings, rumours 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.

      The NHL Line, Brochu is Hockey and NHL Hockey News by saint Pako are currently invalid sources.

      4. Clearly misrepresenting the contents of your thread or posting false Trades/Signings/Acquisitions to send the forum into a frenzy will be taken very seriously and will result in an automatic suspension.

      5. Please put all proposals into the proposals forum and NOT this forum. Proposals found in this forum will be moved or deleted without warning.

      6. Please report any threads or messages that violate these or other board rules to the administrators or moderators() Do not respond by posting spammy messages such as 'IBTL', and 'LOCK AND BAN', or by attacking other users. The report button is located to the bottom left of every post.

      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM one of the Moderators or Administrators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

Iggy only wanted to go to the Pens.... nothing else could've been done

the Boston deal was pretty much done as Feaster & Weisbrod left the pressbox as soon as the Boston game ended, but Jarome said no

We keep trading picks away and we will be watching Gillis doing this same thing with the Sedins

So TSN panel just said Pitts realizes they won't be able to re-sign Iggy this summer due to their cap. Crazy. So Iggy likely becomes a free agent this summer. Where does he go?

Calgary really blew this trade. This was their big asset that they were going to use to catapult them into future success.....and then they get 2 college players who aren't even top 10 prospects for the Penguins and a late 1st. Common sense suggests that maybe if they would have waited a week a team would have gotten more desperate and made a move. Maybe, god forbid, they could have had a bidding war between PItt and Boston.

Man that Iginla is such a nice guy. As if the Linden thing wasn't enough, he goes and makes a fool out of Boston so we can all laugh at them. If he keeps this up he may get a spot in the Canucks Ring of Honor lol.

Oh gosh, its funny how everyone one of us were probably googling those 2 players.

So this is how it ended up...

Calgary trades their heart and soul for a 1st round pick, a prospect draftd in the 5th round 3 years ago, and a prospect that was drafted in round 3 4 years ago?????

What's Vancouver equivalent....

Prospect drafted in the 3rd round in 2009.... Kevin Connauton, since he was drafted after him, Anton Rodin, so Anton Rodin

Prosptect drafted in 5th round in 2010. Adam Polasek

So in Vancouver's equivlanet is our 1st round pick, Plus Anton Rodin and Polasek for Jarome Iginla?

Lets put this way, Calgary got screwed in the Phaneuf trade, they got screwed big time in the Iginla trade.

Basically the Penguins are trying to emulate the dynasty era Oilers and outscore all their problems.

I'm not confident in their defense or goaltending.

Any team that gets that lit up in a playoff series against a weaker opponent has some issues.

After Orpik and Letang it gets mighty thin.

Douglas Murray is a pylon.

I have unfollowed Aaron Ward. This has to be embarrassing for him. He was first to report Iginla to Boston 'done deal'. He has lost all credibility with that one.

no salary cap for the penguins? Afford both Morrow and Iginla? Jesus Christ, this is getting dramatic.

Iginla at the airport: Which flight should I take? Boston or Pittsburgh?
