      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.

:lol:  Often true enough, but not in this case.  I would be shocked out of my fur if Bear was traded for anything of value.  I would like us to get this young guy in the OP, but don't see Baer as a player going back.

I would LOVE to be COMPLETELY wrong on this one, but I just don't see Baer as a valued commodity.

neither is athanasiou, really. it's not like he's a 19 year old with top line potential. he's 23 and just notched 17 goals in his best season. he's a guy the wings won't bend enough to pay $2 mil per year.

6'2 23 year old who has 18 goals in 64 games (so 23 in a full 82 game season). 

 

While 2 million isn't a bargain, its not a bad number. AA should just take what ever they are offering on a 1 year and put up another 20 goal season.

meaning you don't know the value of 33 goals in two x 68 and 69 game seasons.

 

Baertschi's cap hit is 1.85 million.

 

With better underlying numbers and in harder minutes than Athanasiou, he's produced a pair of seasons as good as AA's 'breakthrough' - arguably would be a good comparable for AA's agent to use in asking for a two year deal in that range.

 

Would also be a good hockey trade under the circumstances - Detroit might not even have the leverage to ask for a Baertschi wadr. ;)
