      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.

I love how it's "Filip Forsberg to Nashville" and not "Erat to Washington"

I'm conflicted big time on this one. On one hand, it was way too early for the Caps to trade away Forsberg. However, Erat is a very underrated player, who has been putting up decent points on a defensive minded Nashville team. Although I would rather have Forsberg (due to potential), Erat may be able to put up big points playing on a more offensive minded team.

A perenial 50-60 pt player on the Predators is not chopped liver folks. He's also a player with good underlying numbers (his -7 is misleading) - he's typically a guy who gets less than 50% ozone starts.

Odd deal - Nashville is tied for 8th and give up their top scorer. Yeah, great prospect, but their fans have got to wonder what this says about their management's perception of their potential this season.

Washington is only 3 points out, and buying.

Forsberg as the main piece going back for Pominville would have made more sense.

Seriously what was the Caps thinking. Do they really think they got a chance against the new Pens this year?

BAD EFFING MOVE.

Erat has been next to useless for a while now. And I used to be a big fan of him.

Wash shouldn't have gave up the future if they're not guaranteed a playoff spot

I was laughing so hard when I saw this trade. Washington got robbed so bad! And Nashville hasn't had much on the way of superstar forwards. If this guy turns into the player many expect him to be, Forsberg could be their new go-to guy for offense a few years from now.

A buddy of mine is always smack-talking the canucks, and as luck would have it, he's a caps fan.... Fantastic.

What's with the pronunciation aid on Erat, and Latta? If they were gonna do that, why not do it for Forsberg too?

Something fishy here. I get the feeling that McPhee might know something about the young Forsberg that precipitated this move...

From a conference rival perspective, go to straight to hell McPhee.

That didn't do us a bit of help down the line.
