      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.

Gino!

But as others have said, Flames have traded for his rights but that's no guarantee they sign him. If it was, then people should give more credit to Gillis for getting Hamhuis after his rights were traded to other teams (twice!) before he decided to go to free agency and then signing with the Canucks.

Until I hear he's reached an agreement in principle (to be finalized on July 5) then it's possible he doesn't sign with Calgary.

Why are people suggesting he has to wait until July 5th to sign his deal? That would be only if he was a FA.

Since he was just acquired by the Flames he's their property and they can sign him anytime, no?

He's a bust if he signs with Calgary.

Why does everyone think he's a lock for Calgary? They traded for his rights, doesn't mean he'll sign. If you think about it leaving Florida for Calgary is a lateral move in terms of terribad. It could rather be the case that he's walking away from Florida in order to join a competitive team, regardless where he slots in.

Edmonton really shouldn't bother with him, they've got enough young forwards - this kid isn't going to have any room to develop on that team. Calgary seems perfect - Alberta kid going to a team with essentially no depth at center.

Of course he'd fit well into our development here. Although he has the same niche as Gaunce, the two of them would make a great 2nd/3rd line center or even higher. You need big physical defensive centers in today's NHL, Boston are proving that with Krejci and Bergeron.

Looks like it's really all but done, so we can lock this up or change it to a "Flames sign" thread:

#Flames C Corban Knight: “Calgary had the needs that I could bring to the table. And then it was close to home, so that was a bonus.”

Raised a Canucks fan, Corban Knight now a 'diehard #Flames fan.' My story on the 22-year-old trade acquisition — http://bit.ly/1bSHeh5

Maybe Gillis gets his rights thrown in on a Luongo draft day deal?

Edit: Going to last page before posting helps.
