      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.

[Waivers] 7 players including Canucks' Barker

Recommended Posts

At least one roster spot is going to Kesler. But there's definitely room for one or two deals here.

Barker is not only better than Alberts, he was better than both Bieksa and Edler last night too.

I didn't mind Barker at all, I thought he had a pretty good idea what his limits were, and stayed within that. But I still prefer having Alberts.

Couldn't care less. Hopefully this just means we've got another deal in the works.

Grab us Torres for a mid rounder, another 3rd paring RIGHT SHOT D man, and we would have done fairly well in my opinion.

It's just waivers guys, it's not like he's guaranteed to get claimed. People were complaining Gillis wasn't making moves, and now that he is preparing to, they complain about someone like Barker being sent down.

Hope no one picks up Barker.

I would be looking at Kurtis Foster. He right handed dman, which is what we need. 950k cap hit aren't bad.

We're not getting Clowe guys. He hates Vancouver and I can't see SJ dealing him here. What could we give them for Clowe?

Sometimes players need changes and Clowe is one of those players, I think he would be a pretty good fit here on the Nucks as long as he doesn't do any of that cheap stuff like pokechecking the puck while he is sitting on the bench.

That's funny cause Dan Murphy made a point during last night's game about how Clowe said he would love to play in Vancouver and under AV again... But I guess you have more insider insight than Murph does... So I guess we'll take your obvious expert opinion on how Clowe feels about anything in the future. :rolleyes:

Not sure why the douchie-ness. I remember last season in a post game interview Clowe was asked which team his disliked the most in the league and he said Vancouver. I didn't get to watch the game last night due to having to study.

Back to Cam Barker,he is a little soft clearing the crease from what I have seen.Prefer Alberts to him at this time,but if given the chance I see him learning the system better.

outside of 3-4 burnings this year (same as Edler/Bieksa in one game) i havent minded Barker, i hope he stays with us as a depth guy.

He's actually looked good moving the puck up at times, makes a good first pass out of the zone.
