      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.

Laine looks like he could be of Targaryan blood line

I always said he and Shink look like the Night's King. Soooo pale.

I'm not too worried about this. There's a very strong chance that Willie will be relieved of his duties and then his precious Megna will end up playing where he belongs, 4th line or Comets.

If Willie stays though; well, he and his 'life partner' will be good for another tank, and that's a silver lining on this dark cloud.

... Tom Sestito or any goon could put up similar points with less ice time and provide toughness as well for the same price. 

 

JB not being so subtle with the tank anymore.

League probably wont let us put biega as a forward. Plus megna isnt that bad in a 4th line role... but we all know this won't happen.

i don't have a problem with this signing. I'd rather Megna sitting in the press box as the 13th forward than a prospect that could be playing good minutes in Utica.

What does this say about Willie's future in Vancouver? His favorite player resigned ergo he stays next year or is this some sort of April Fools joke where they fire Willie at the end of the year?

The only reason people are hatin is because Willie used Megna in situations where he didn't have the talent to be successful I think. He could have flown under the radar all season in the 12/13 spot. It isn't a good or a bad signing really, you need guys like that in your organization.

For all the hate Megna gets, he's out hustled a lot of promising players this year (Virtanen, Goldobin, etc) and I'd rather have a guy with a bottom six ceiling going all out than a top six project coasting around the ice. Nothing in this contract pencils him in for next year but if we run into the same injury woes next season I'll be more than happy to welcome him back into the lineup. For now though we did need one more forward to expose that's signed through 2017-2018 and Megna gives us that. Solid contract!

Pretty much this. It's not Megna's fault he gets so much ice time. The effort is definitely there. The talent, however, is not. But it's down to Willie to spot that and he seemingly can't.

Willie's got a fever, and there is only one cure........MORE MEGNA!  Thanks to JB for helping the poor guy out.   

 

 I don't have a problem, there isn't going to be a quick fix to this mess, and we're going to need a year or two more of solid failure before we have the prospects we need to start the upswing.  2020 is going to be our year.....I hope.  So sign the plugs and ride out our time in the basement till it is our time to ascend.

Megna is fine as a depth 3rd/4th line player

 

He has speed, smart defensively and plays hard. Just because willie rewards his EFFORT to send a signal to young talent that they have to work to get ice, doesn't mean he's a bad player-it means he's giving his all

 

Alot of comments here seem to ignore something willie has been trying to teach the young talented players and has even stated

 

Players with little offensive skill really only have on thing to go give, effort, but you need your skill guys to give the same kind of effort game in game out. When your skill guys give the same effort as your depth guys (ie Bo) you start seeing the team become competitive. People should not be ragging on Megna for giving it all, or willie for rewarding it - they should be asking, WHY aren't some of the skill guys 'earning' that ice?

 

Most here don't seem to understand this

I expect a break out season next year from McMegnid - 6 goals , 6 assists.

 

We prob have at least one more year of ugly hockey coming to us, at least the draft is stronger next year.

I don't see the problem, 1 year, 675k (basically minimum salary) for a depth player.  Probably will also be exposed to Vegas, saving a spot for someone else? 

 

Yes a prospect could have filled his spot, but you don't want a prospect playing 4th line minutes/healthy scratch, better to play singnificant in the AHL instead and leave the dirty work to players like Megna.
