      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.

[Extension] Derek Dorsett and Luca Sbisa re-signed

Recommended Posts

3.6 is pushing it for Sbisa but here's to hoping he improves and makes the contract a steal. From the beginning of the season until now, Sbisa has steadily improved and his physicality has increased. Hope he realizes that this is what he needs to do to be a regular top 6. Was hoping anywhere between 3-3.5 mil but 3.6 is alright.

U mean top 4?

I think Dorsett is what he is, a tad bit overplayed, but he's earned it. Pizza on the other hand, he's still young and is still improving. I wouldn't play him that much right now, so he will have to show us he is worth the dough

In the next few years, guys like Corrado, Clendening, Pedan, Gaunce, Shinkaruk, Horvat, Cassels, Baertschi, McCann, Virtanen, Vey will be on ELC and RFA contracts, giving us room pay the vets.

Sbisa is our replacement for Hamhuis after next season, and with the way he's been improving over the course of the season, I don't doubt that he'll be a steady 2nd pairing defenceman in years 2 and 3 of that deal

Stanton/Pedan/Hutton will likely be knocking on the doors next year to compete for the 3rd pairing spot behind Sbisa in 2016-2017, and they'll be dirt cheap

This is a great signing IMO

Are you guys really complaining about Dorsett's contract?? The guy deserves every penny of that contract.

Couldn't have kept Dorsett for much less; he was unrestricted.

Sbisa is priced right for a young defenseman with his size, speed, physicality, development, and potential.

Jesus H Christ.

So Derek Dorsett making nearly $100,000 per point...

and Sbisa is making a helluva lot more than that.... Man.... These deals make me miss Gillis.

Since you put it that way this is better value than guys like toews, ovechkin

Dorsett is really our Prust/Thornton/Bickell and he's arguably better than all of them. Don't know why people are complaining. Not like we're paying the contracts anyways. Plus give or take $500K, fair deal.

The cap issues created here will create some brilliant off-season drama, that's for sure.

I don't mind Dorsett, but could do with the constant oversell on him being instrumental to whatever here.

As for Sbisa, m'kay. The days of Hammer and perhaps Bieksa being Canucks are coming to a close? We're going to need legit replacements asap.

Knock, knock... It's Jake!

Jake who?

Jake Muddatruckin CHYCHRUN, that's who!

Pretty much what I'm sensing too and said. Either Hammer/Juice replacement. If I had to pick one, would say Hammer just cause Juice brings and edge to his game like Dorsett which we need.

People need to stop being so close minded and look down the road a bit. Sbisa will eventually step into the top 4 and make for a good replacement. He's just 25 and just entering his prime.

Not a big fan of either deal. At least they didn't get NTCs
