      BOARD SPECIFIC RULES   02/05/2016

      These are board specific rules, meant to try to make the Trades and Free Agent Signings forum better for everyone. YOU MUST READ AND ABIDE BY THESE FORUM RULES.

      1. If an event happens, wait a few minutes before posting, in all likelihood, someone has already posted it. We don't want numerous threads on the same event, so please search before posting.

      2. Please provide a clearly identifiable topic title for your thread so that user's can search for and find the appropriate thread easily. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate. This is to help avoid duplicate threads and to make searching easier. For any and all comments, please use the Topic Description box instead of the title.

      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 that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriately label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].

      3. All trades, signings, rumours 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.

      The following are NOT considered valid sources: 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
      Hockeybuzz, Spector's Hockey and The Fourth Period are currently acceptable sources.

      The NHL Line, Brochu is Hockey and NHL Hockey News by saint Pako are currently invalid sources.

      4. Clearly misrepresenting the contents of your thread or posting false Trades/Signings/Acquisitions to send the forum into a frenzy will be taken very seriously and will result in an automatic suspension.

      5. Please put all proposals into the proposals forum and NOT this forum. Proposals found in this forum will be moved or deleted without warning.

      6. Please report any threads or messages that violate these or other board rules to the administrators or moderators() Do not respond by posting spammy messages such as 'IBTL', and 'LOCK AND BAN', or by attacking other users. The report button is located to the bottom left of every post.

      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM one of the Moderators or Administrators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

Vancouver Canucks @VanCanucks

#Canucks have acquired defenceman Raphael Diaz from Montreal in exchange for Dale Weise. Formal announcement to follow.

Pierre LeBrun @Real_ESPNLeBrun

Habs and Canucks trade: Diaz for Weise. A little brawn for the Canadiens, while Van gets puck-moving D

Harrison Mooney @HarrisonMooney

Diaz is a righty, which solves a big problem for the Canucks right now.

Nice! Diaz on his game is a good puck-mover. Incredibly soft, but a much needed element on the back end.

Just wondering what Diaz brings to the table that Weber doesn't or didn't? Could this be the prelude to an Edler trade?

I like this trade at face value; Diaz is a better overall player than Weise, and we need good d-men badly what with the injuries.

Will have to see how it plays out.

I thought Dutch Gretzky would have been a good addition to a trade to acquire a forward.. Not sure how I feel about this one yet.

Good deal. Weise was redundant on this team and seemed to be sitting in the press box more often lately.

Decent deal. Could be a sign of things to come.

Also, I'll always be saying "Hey Diaz" because of this

If there isn't a bold move to make what do you expect Gillis to do? Weise was a redundant 4th liner. This might not be beneficial but it could help the pp.

At this point anything could help the PP, couldn't make it worse. Redundant or not Weise was still playing harder than most of our top six sadly.

I don't expect bold moves, never did. but this rabid fan base uses the "bold moves" comments constantly
