      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.

[Signing] Canucks Sign Santorelli

276 posts in this topic

I like the pickups so far by Gillis,they all have potential to do more than the value.

The fact this guy played with Booth and played well with him is enough for me to give him a shot.

Should be a interesting training camp.

I wish people would just stop putting Kassian on the first line, he won't be there for long. Ya, I know, he did OK there for a few games, but we've seen this before, there was a platoon of players who did well with the twins for a few games when Nonis was here.

?? Kassian was a monster. Didn't he score 5 goals in 5 games or something?

Canucks Mafia strikes again!

Too bad we didn't give Ribeiro an offer he couldn't refuse.

And then what did he do after that?? We've seen players have short term success with the twins before.

The fourth line is where there was the greatest need to upgrade, and that is what Gillis is doing.

I would have loved to see a veteran two way 3rd line center who is a dynamo in the faceoff circle, but Boyd Gordon commanded 3yrs and 9 million - and that just didn't make sense with Gaunce, Schroeder, and Horvat in the system.

A pair of speedy depth centers, one of whom can step up onto the third line if Schroeder or Gaunce don't command that position, is a perfectly reasonable choice of acquisitions - and both of these guys have upside.

This franchise has a lot of significant players already - and some quality prospects - what it needs are a few players like it just added. I'd love to see another depth defenseman like Blum signed, and another depth center who can win faceoffs (perhaps Halpern or Steckel) to add to the mix, and will consider the free agency efforts a job well done.

I think Gillis has made some smart moves during FA so far.

Santorelli, Weber, and Richardson have all been cheap but good signings. Santorelli will probably be the 13th forward on most nights but I think both him and Richardson or good signings as they can move up and down our lineup quite easily. There were better options out there but the Canucks couldn't afford those.

starting to get excited about next season and watching how the Canucks will do, hopefully there is not that big of a set back, if any at all.

I love how when the Canucks sign some player I have barely heard of I come to these boards and see unbridled enthusiasm.

I'm sure I won't be the only one who wants to see

Sedin Sedin Kassian

Burrows Kesler (Schroeder/Shinkaruk/Jensen)

Booth Santorelli Higgins

Richardson (Lain/Gaunce/Horvat) Hansen

With Hansen on 4th line, I feel more comfortable surrounding 1 rookie with Richardson and Hansen as oppose to Hansen on second line and surround Richardson with 2 rookies

Plus that third line, we can just call it the Panther line xD
