      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.

Nice, an All-Star signing for under 1.6 million per year. Now if only he could play like a legitimate all-star.

It's over $1 million per year.

He signed for 1.6 million per year, as for the second part of your post, it's sad but true... :lol:  To his credit though, he works his butt off on the ice each and every game.

He definitely does, I don't really remember why the fans in Buffalo chose him to vote him in as an all-star but I would assume that his work ethic makes him a fan favorite. That and the fact that he is part of the NHL all-name team.

The whole country of Latvia voted him in believe it or not.  Girgensons was huge that year because of how well he had done in the Olympics.

Makes me wish that the Canucks should have gave Arturs Irbe a better shot when we had him.

Irbe was a streaky goaltender year to year.  Can't blame the old guard for only holding onto him for a short time.

He was playing solid hockey until Disco Dan Bylsma came in. Can see him improve immensely this year.

Steal and probably one of the more underrated 3rd line centers out there in the Vermette/ Couturier mold--big, strong, defensively responsible, two-way guy and tough to play against with some offensive potential.  IF we didn't pick up guys during the summer I would've been down for Benning to try to bring someone like him in as he would've been a decent complementary player to acquire.  Oh well, good for Buffalo to have him hold things down behind ROR and Eich.

Show up for 2 years and he'll be set up for a big pay day if he can reach 35+ points.
