      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.

More notes on him:

 

Strengths

  • Shot: especially heavy snapshot
  • Hockey IQ
  • Intelligence
  • Creativity
  • Consistency
  • Plays close to mistake-free
  • Work ethic
  • Agile skating ability

 

Under Construction (Improvements to Make)

  • Strength, physical play
  • Continued improvements to his defensive side of the game

NHL Potential

  • Top 6 Forward
  • His style is somewhat reminiscent of Jeff Skinner

Risk-Reward Analysis

Risk = 1.5/5   Reward = 4/5                     

 

Fantasy Hockey Potential

Offensive = 8/10   Defensive = 6.5/10

Dahlen was a solid second round pick who has continued to progress like a solid 2nd round pick. So getting him is pretty much the equivalent of getting a second round pick. That is a pretty good return for Burrows. Dahlen is a small high skill guy. Won't contribute to the physical game or the speed game, but he might be able to score. Would expect to see him in Utica next year.

Lol whens the last time we had a second round player that developed like that.

Is this now official? If so, what a great job by Benning. Here some of us thought Burr would get us a 4th or 5th. I'll bet the fact that Burr agreed to a 2-year extension, got the deal done. Thank you Burr and Benning.

Burrows will be a Canuck forever.  Broke in playing with Bertuzzi and Naslund, and gave some great memories.

 

He will always be THE DRAGON SLAYER

Bitter sweet for sure. One of my fav canucks ever, but we need to get younger and it sounds like a good trade. Now just strap the A on Horvat and we move on.

Why would Ottawa give up a pretty good prospect for a much older player? 

Because they have some dragons to slay in April?

Burrows + Hutton = Turris

One more year of contract after this one and then free agency = Turris :)

This is the closest Ottawa has been to having a legit "window". And Jim has hired a witch (I'm guessing).
