      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.

Oh boy, Wild are stacking their team. Going to be an epic playoff series if we play against them

Or they are done in one while they gave up a boatload for a soft top 6 player making 5. mil?

Whereas we gave up less than 1/3 of that for a comparable player

The Wild & Canucks are tied and the Canucks have faced a super high amount of injuries all year.

Roy >>>> Pominville. Any reason somebody thinks otherwise is because of height.

The fact that the Canucks will also be adding some healthy bodies: Kesler, Kassian, and eventually Ballard and the fact that they added Roy and not too long ago Nicklas Jensen came over, tells me that Vancouver is STILL the better team. Add that to the fact that Minnesota hasn't had much playoff success in a while and Yeo has never head coached a single NHL playoff game, then AV & The Canucks are anything but the underdogs in a playoff series between the two.

As far as the race for the division title goes, it'll be tight, but I think the Canucks will win it. Adding a playmaking center to a team that needed a playmaking center badly and was still tied for the division lead is a good sign - Roy has put up 40+ assists 4 times, not incl. a 25 assist in 35 game season or this year, where he'd be on pace for 49 over 82 games.

Everyone hold yer horses.

2 solid prospects and 2 picks (1st and 2nd) for Pomminville and a pick (4th).

I would have loved to get Pomminville, but there's no way in hell he's worth that much. Thank god Gillis didn't go after him.

Pretty steep price - but he's not a rental (one more year left on his deal).

Still - a 1st, 2nd, and two decent prospects for Pomminville? I think Buffalo wins this deal.

Nucks pick up Roy. Wild pick up Pominville.

I don't see much of a edge, they both produce at the same rate.

Anyone know how Minny isn't over the cap?

Hopefully someone can answer that
