      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.

Glen Sather Considering Stepping Down?

Recommended Posts

Ok, in all fairness these guys have been spot on the ball about just about every rumour that's been broken lately, including Eakins signing in Edmonton. This is a literal RUMOUR at this time and nothing more but it does echo some serious rumblings from New York Media outlets, so until I do find the link or tweet do not jump on me. I am searching desperately for the link to this RUMOUR. But the RUMOUR from a fairly spot on group of guys who also run a sweet hockey pool are saying New York Media is reporting Glen Sather is considering stepping down as GM but retaining the position of President of Hockey Operations with the New York Rangers. He has battled cancer and recently had a surgery to remove a tumour from his colon and some call his health into question regarding this. This is the only place I have heard this but when I find the story I will post the link. https://www.facebook.com/HockeyRandT?fref=ts

Sound thinking would dictate either Messier and or Gretzky would be involved in some way moving forward wouldn't it?

To be fair..

He hasn't been a good GM at all.

Sound thinking would suggest that Messier or Gretzky are not qualified for the jobs.

Hey, I won't argue that at all. But it's Slats and his boys. We all know how he is.

Nothing has changed in two weeks since Sather announced intention to remain as GM during conference call with media.
