      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.

but couldn't Subban do the same?

I know we are comparing apples to oranges...but you get my drift? Offensive defender that can't defend?

Despite the losses of Tryamkin and Sbisa, the left side is healthy enough with Edler, Hutton, Del Zotto, Holm and Juolevi on the way.

I think DZ will be a good fit.

Exact money and term I was thinking. Solid player and seems like a good fit for our team. Hopefully this pushes Hutton to the 3rd pairing (where he can just play his game). Happy with this! Good Day for Jim so far

Comes in on a great contract. Allows OJ to be sheltered and has shown flashes of being a 40 pt d man in the past. With Newell Brown and a few more options on the pp he could turn into a good player for Us, and an even better player when we trade him at next year's deadline when OJ and perhaps another of our d prospects are ready to step in. Benning is doing this right.

I loved him with the Rangers so I'm pretty stoked about this. I know he kinda fell off his game with the Flyers but I'm hoping he can find it back with us.

Worst signing of the day for Canucks, not a bad signing, but still the worst. Hopefuly he can have a good season, stay out of the negative personal stuff and be traded come the deadline.

Not keen on this player though the term and money is fine and it is an upgrade on Sbisa but don't like the way DZ plays on or off the ice.   Hopefully contract doesn't have a NM or similar clause that prevents TDL move for prospects should his old off-ice habits become an issue.

Also no issues with this.

 

Will be a great revenue generator for Brandis.

Is that place still around?

Would have rather us sign someone big and physical but the contract is decent.

I didn't realize how young he is.  He has shown flashes of real solid play and is just entering his prime now.  If nothing else, he is better than Larsen.

Love it. Jaybee identified the Powerplay as the major area of weakness and made moves today to fix it. Job's not done, but it's great to see the team moving in the right direction. Well Any direction really.

Is he an upgrade on pizza? How so?

Is he going to run the Ryan Reaves of the league better?

Fight Peluso? 

I'm not sure what kind of an upgrade this guy is in heart or toughness, something this D sorely lacks.

He can play actual D and makes less  money which is important in CAP era so I am told.    Apparently having someone who is better at their position (possession numbers, GA/TA etc.) and is paid less is apparently good asset management.   

 

Don't know about the heart thing as am not a cardiologist.

Somebody able to throw a bit of weight around, clear the net, and throw some fists if needed. Gudbranson is going to need a hand. Del Zotto may help the PP, and that does need help. I'm thinking half the value of Del Zotto is it will most likely keep Juolevi out of the NHL for one more season, perhaps playing over in Europe.
