      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.

Not sure why but it reminds me of this...

Unlikely to ever be an NHLer, but you never know.

Just to give some perspective, Ken Agostino was the best player on the team, and he was a 5th round pick. Not to say that means these undrafted guys won't make it, but the odds are low.

Gee!! Why is everyone so bent over and upset because we didn't sign these top college players?

Most of these guys are undrafted for a reason, and will never make an impact!

Remember all the hype about the so called "top college prospect" signing of Kellan Lain? Guess what? 10 GP, 0G, 0A, 0PTS, -3.

They are undrafted for a reason.

I hate to say it

But I'm saying it since we didn't sign him.

College FA's

Does anyone know what the FA stands for?

Freally Averated

Tanev is like winning the lottery off a free play.

Not bent out of shape just wondering why so many of these young guys are choosing to go there. Apparently there were 15 teams after this guy. Why choose the coldest city in the NHL that has shown the only thing it can do is play bad enough ot pick first at the draft.

It's not like he's a candidate to be a big force in protecting the talented players. He's 5'10" and 180. I woudl have thought he would be better off going where they have size and could accommodate his stature.

Every college free agent signing, I always thank GMMG for getting us Tanev.

I heard that the 'wine & cheese' parties they throw on arrival are legendary! Ask Schultz.

The only 2 free agents that made a significant impact on their teams, that was signed in the past 5 years, were......

Tyler Bozak

Chris Tanev.

Other then that, the others have sniffed some NHL games, but failed miserably to hang on to their roster spot. To be honest, I'm not expecting any of these (Recent college signing players) to make a significant impact in the NHL. History is not on their side.

They need a captain for the future. I don't see any of their top 4 making good captains.

Maybe they like his leadership qualities. I don't see him being better than any of the young players they have though.

In time, I think Hall would make a good captain. Definitely not Yakupov though.
