      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.

[Waivers] 18 players - Sept. 23, 2017 (All cleared)

Recommended Posts

Anders Lindback would be an interesting claim to make - could try to rehabilitate him in ECHL.   It would be unique for Vancouver to have a 6'6" Swedish goalie in the system :P

Another shot at Granberg, but Edler won't be here much longer.  Rather keep McEneny.  Granberg could become the D version of Boucher -- bandied about over the waiver wire.

Looks like a lot of journeymen and goalies but none really seem to have a wow factor to make me think that they are a huge improvement over what the Canucks are currently working with.

I think there will be a lot of better players still to come when teams have to make the hard decisions and the Canucks are one of those teams

With McEneny being assigned to Utica doesn't he now have to clear waivers?

I think he will be put on waivers tomorrow as the Canucks announced the cuts after 9:00 am PT.

ya i dont really wanna lose this kid  mind boggling we  get prospects a d throw them away like corrado weird 

to be brutally honest tho Frankie wasn't very good. We may see him on the wire again this year from the Pens. Losing some guys to waivers sucks, but its also a sign of growing depth of talent (usually anyway).

 ya but why develop a good prospect  so you  can throw them away it isnt good asset management. Plus keeping vets that arent doing the job their salary pays them isnt good asset managment sutter at 4.5 mill or gaunce and burmistrov combined 1.7 mill contracts   youngsters win in my book  benning needs to trim the fat (sutter, eriksson, tanev, edler) should all be traded  sedins def shouldnot be resigned until end of yr and no more than 2 m each otherwise let them sign somewhere else

because you have to develop them for a while before you know if they are any good. Thats why so many picks never make it, even 1/2 of 1st round picks don't end up having long careers. 

 

you can only be a seller if there's a buyer, and I'm sure Jim would have loved to have gotten anything for Frank. I guess Jim figured Clendenning was the better bet and thats probably going to turn out to be true. 

 

Sutter might be a bit overpaid compared to his peers but he is the only shut down 3C we have right now. I think in 2 seasons all the veteran guys you mentioned could be gone.

Funny how he always gets overlooked... but when it comes to Virtanen (because he's a Canuck), the whole league laughs at us for picking him at 6

yes he has to clear waivers as does Pedan, both guys would be claimed.....Pedan is interesting as he has paid 750,000 salary in minors or NHL.. Might stop teams that are close to cap from claiming him..Benning did same style of contract with Boucher..

Really need to move Sutter,  Edler would be a good player for a contender as #3 D man on most teams..Trade Sutter for young prospect as we can replace him...

Sorry I was wrong thinking McEneny had to clear waivers... This is his third pro season so I thought he had to clear waivers..

 

That is so awesome as I am a fan of McEneny, He will be top 2 guy on defence with Utica..
