      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.

Recommended Posts

I am a hockey fan and i appreciate reading these sorts of things but i dont think you had to post all of them. Because apparently most people on this board dont know who most of them are. Sorry

Was deadline day the last day you can sign prospects to contracts or something? That's why you see a flurry of these I assume.

for those of you who say you have never heard of these guys, guess you are newbies to hockey. Drew McIntyre was a Canucks prospect not too long ago. He is 29 now so chances are he won't accomplish much in the NHL, but nobody knew who Tim Thomas was when he was 29.

Wow, people come in here to complain... He clearly stated "under the radar" in the title. These were signings that happened that not many people know about. He could have made each one an individual thread, but decided to make it into one clean list. Thanks OP.

In my opinion a defenseman that will be better than any other on your current list was also signed to a 3 year entry level contract by the Winnipeg Jets on April 2nd Jacob Trouba!!!!

A lot of other big names on that list as well. Wotherspoon looks to have top pairing potential for Calgary. I'd say that at this point him and Baertschi are the centrepieces of that "retool".

Strome will possibly give the Islanders the best 1-2 center punch in the league along with Tavares if they both stay long term (Besides the Penguins of course).

The Red Wings need Ryan Sproul to be a top 4 defenseman down the road and possibly even this season if they want to remain competitive.

Danny Kristo has all the tools to be a really good top 6 winger for years to come in Montreal. All of the sudden that team has one of the best systems in the league with a lot of young talent.

Dmitrij Jaskin tore up the QMJHL this season and is one of the best Czech born prospects in the game. Another great looking draft pick by Jarmo Kekalainen when he was with the Blues organization. I'm very excited to see what he does with the Blue Jackets in his first stint as an NHL General Manager.

Because some of those players are nobodies. I understand including the bigger name players but were the rookie signings necessary? Whatever though, good thread otherwise

Pretty interested to see how Jaskin pans out personally.

Actually, I like this thread. It points out that some more players I rooted for during Canada's World Junior dominance have marched another step towards the NHL.

It also points out who the redundant, internet, weiner-whiners are although, I would rather they stay silent.

Minister, do you really think all of Calgary's 2011 picks will play for them in the NHL? I might be able to say they did "really well" in 5 or 6 years. I admit though, I don't see these plays play enough so all I can go off of is stats.

Agreed.

Brossoit - don't know too much can't comment

Wotherspoon - 2nd pair upside, very solid defensive dman

Granlund - skilled guy, has 2nd line upside if all things go well

Baertschi - gem of the group, has star upside IMO

Gaudreau - tiny but ultra skilled, for where he was picked it will likely be one of the biggest steals in that draft, with Calgary's lack of depth he should get an opportunity to be a real good player

Haha, it's ridculous for me, a person who is big on prospects and one of my favorite things about hockey is checking out prospects to see all these people going OMG WHO THE HELL ARE THESE PEOPLE.........

But seriously, how do you not know who Strome is.....who Wotherspoon is......who Brossoit is....

I can't believe how many people are making "who cares" posts in this thread. I'll tell you who cares: Those of us with more than just a passing interest in the game and like to know what's on the horizon as far a up-and-coming players go...

If you honestly don't care, then prove it by taking you snide remarks somewhere else.

Minister: Thanks for the effort. Believe it or not, some people around here appreciate it.
