      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.

Good price if true. I'll wait for something more official though.

Higgs is a great team guy and a very versatile heart and sole player. Best player on the ice tonight.

Part of me feels like the team had to make a choice between Raymond and Higgins with the cap going down, just my personal thought. If this is true, I think this season is the last we see of Raymond.

Solid deal, but I think the term is a bit too long. 2-3 years would be better

Guys, cut Samir some slack. He messed up calling the trade for Luongo like twice. If you had a connection, wouldn't you like to be the first to break the news? He did break the Booth and Hodgson trades, so he obviously isn't sourceless.

Time and place, folks. Time and place.

ANOTHER no trade clause and too much term is brutal. Higgins is a decent role player but honestly 4 years is way too long.

Good player but man Gillis sure loves throwing around NTCs.

Believe he's the one who said Higgy had an infection last yr as well - well before the public knew.

I don't like the term or limited NTC, but like the cap hit. 4 yrs for another 30 yr old is not my idea of a great contract. He's a great versatile player, but his underlying numbers have fallen through the floor this yr. They're really bad.

Great deal if true. Higgins deserves it. I loved watching him play for this team. He busts his ass out there. I hope this is an attempt to secure a solid third line that features Higgins, who can also slot up to the second if need be.

I also wonder what becomes of Raymond if this is true. I mean, with the emrgence of Hansen, Raymond seems like the odd man out here.
