      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.

Dig a bit deeper.

Landing this guy would mean that the team could dump one or two of Gagner and Brum. Cap problems are fluid pretty easily moved around. Pick up The Cracken. Whatever. 

 

Overpayment. Yes, agreed, but required to get a proven young, stud out of a rebuilding team. Also, the mediocracy going the other way is no big deal. Gaudette has a slim chance of ever becoming an impact player in the NHL anyways. 

 

I do this Trade no problem. Like I said, cap space isn't going to be a problem as soon as a trade makes some room. It's a hockey trade. Not going to happen, though. 

Speaking of needing to dig deeper, like most of the time you're way off on this one, to the point where it seems you do not even know who he is aside from being a late pick.

I should just wait for you to speak for me. That way, I'd post things you agree with and you'd never be forced into throwing insults around.

Simply a conclusion drawn from your comments.  Do you know anything at all about Gaudette and his development?  Ever seen him play?

And every other prospect that never made an impact.

"prospect" 

You do realize everyone in the league once started out as prospect?

I think Gaudette will turn out to be a better player than Goldobin. If we're comparing prospects...

Agreed. While I'm not sure if Goldy's game will translate to the NHL level, I really don't have much doubt that Gaudette's will.

Trading Joulevi for Duchene would be a horrible move...Personally,I think Benning would be crucified for making that trade...and rightfully so.

I agree. Duchene does not fit in with the rebuilding plan. We need young players that will reach their peak at the same time, Duchene will be out of his prime. Also, we have no blue chip defence prospect in the system aside from Juolevi. Up front, we have Pettersson who will come up in about 2 years along with few others but none on defence.

Way too much speculation swirling around for this to be just smoke.

 

IMO, it would be a huge mistake. Duchene is turning 27 in January. By the time our next core starts playing together in the NHL, he'll be just over/under 30. It would show that Benning still wants to just "retool on the fly" when this team just needs to undergo a typical rebuild.
