      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.

Expecting to see some quality names hit the wire in the next 48 hours as teams finalize their cuts and rosters.

 

Will be interesting to see if benning does anything

for sure. Most interesting waiver time in a while. 

 

I wonder if Boucher put in less of an effort hoping to go on waivers again?

 I honestly just think he's not a committed athlete.

the reason I had the suspicion is a couple of teams might pick him up - FLA e.g., only has 11 Fs on the main roster right now. 

 

But you're probably right, I guess its always a surprise to me when guys are this close and just don't put in the extra effort. The son of one of my wife's friends is a similar kind of guy, has had plenty of chances and was even a C one year on his minor team but is just lazy on conditioning.

That didn't stop them from waiving Grenier. They should just re-sign Jagr.

Lets Ryan White get un jersey'd mid fight here before launching more bombs.

He said he was working hard on his cardio all summer. 

 

Personally, I liked what I saw out of him last year. He has potential and isn't that far off from reaching it IMO. It's hard to draw much of a conclusion off of 2 preseasons games. I think Boucher is just a victim of the numbers game. Sure, it would have helped his cause if he potted a couple but he's still a guy I want in the organization. So I really hope he clears and goes down to Utica.

I took something totally different out of his game this preseason but I will agree that I hope he makes it to Utica. He would be phenomenal for their top six.

I just don't think there was room for Boeser, Rodin, and Boucher. With the way Boeser and Rodin have played, not surprised Boucher got put on waivers.

Boucher is pretty expendable IMO not the type of depth player the Canucks need. Hope he goes to Utica but I wonder if he would even crack their top 6 this year. So Meh!.. Boeser Rodin Goldobin Virtanen OR Boucher? Pretty easy choice. Honestly I think all 4 start in Utica. Rodin on a conditioning stint if they can....

Cannata, I remember when he was one of our hopefuls before. Too bad he's not turning out.

I remember him giving up a cheesy goal in preseason a year or 2 ago. I said canata will never be an nhl goalie. Some poster reamed me out. 

 

I'm still winning lol.

I have not seen Curtis Valk hit the waiver wire yet in Florida?

 

For those who deride Benning, Florida, for example, does not enjoy the depth we do at this point? (They are better, the depth.)

 

I actually think he will make the Panthers.

Once Vanek was signed; this was destined unless he came in remarkably good form and fitness. And fair enough to risk losing our (then) 23rd man on the depth chart for a guy who will be 7th or 10th.

 

And I believe Boucher will clear.  Then it will be an issue of whether he gets the memo? That he has to add some pace, and compete to his skill game.

 

He should make the Comets pretty dangerous though.

They still have 20 Fs at camp eg McCann finished the year in the AHL so he is not on the main roster on CapFriendly but he is expected to make the team - they have apparently been really impressed with him so far.

Doubt it!! He already got tough decisions to make keeping Rodin or Biega.... Virtanen or Dorsett...
