      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 following are NOT considered valid sources: 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
      Hockeybuzz, Spector's Hockey and The Fourth Period are currently acceptable sources.

      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.

If this happens it would tick me off more than anything that could possibly happen... Have wanted Frans for years. If he is now in play for the right price, Move Lu for him and Nabokov, maybe a few odd pieces being included. Because...

Saad-Toews-Kane

Sharp-Nielsen-Hossa

Bickel-Bolland-Shaw

That isn't even a fair top 9.

It's going to take a sever overpayment to get the Islanders to move Nielson, so meh.

Dafuq is with the overhype of Frans effing Nielsen on these boards? He's a below average centre on a remarkably bad NYI team.

You sound like they are acquiring Gretzky in his prime. Big whoop if they land Nielsen, because he isn't gonna put them over the top.

I think people think that he's younger than he actually is (29 in April), but he is probably one of the best 3rd line two way centers in the league with a lot of offensive upside (think Brandon Sutter, but better offense).

Also he is the best shootout guy in the league.

It could happen. NYI has Tavares and Bailey down the middle, and Casey Cizikas emerging this season... Although I'd imagine Chicago's offer would have to be substantial to pry Nielsen out of there. His cap hit is solid, he's signed for 3 more years, and he does it all for them... there's no pressing need to move him.
