      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.

[Rumour] Canucks to trade for Raffi Torres

213 posts in this topic

There were rumours that Higgins wouldn't re-sign if they re-signed Torres. I have no idea if that is true or not, but I remember reading that on hfboards awhile back.

Not the least bit interested in seeing Raffi in Vancouver again.

Except some legal but near career ending hits that look so damn bad the refs see no choice but to penalize him? I'll take a Torres any day. He puts fear in top players.

Gillis should have signed him 2 yrs ago when he walked as a UFA. How would it look if he gives up assets/picks to acquire him now? Not good I tell ya.

But I do really like ol' Raffi. He's very effective in little TOI. Plus, we need another red-head. After Sulzer left, Gillis never met the quota last summer.

Edit: I remember reading on the HF Boards that Higgy and Torres had a beef. Something about Higgy refusing to resign that summer if they signed Torres. Anyone remember reading that?

Just to twist things around and look at it from a different perspective: does anyone think that Torres might not want to come back to Vancouver?

regards,

G.

Yes Gillis, trade away more assets instead of paying the extra few hundred thousand...

What an idiot.

Yes please, he's been doing well in Phoenix. He's on the last year of his contract, which means no commitment needed which is what MG wanted. GITRDONE

You are all forgetting that we were over the cap that year (and had to do somersauts to get compliant, incl. using millions in LTIR space). So, by paying Torres just a few hundred thousand more - that basically means we would have had to lose another player somewhere...

It was TERMS. It was never about the money. Torres wanted long term security. Gillis only offered a one year deal...
