      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.

[Rumor] Canucks shopping for top 9 forward

Recommended Posts

If you fast forward to about 3:10 in the video

 

Pierre Lebrun says Jim Benning in light of the injuries to Bo Horvat and Sven Baertschi, has been out looking for another top 9 scoring forward.  Has called most teams but hasn't found any traction as of yet.

 

Just thought I share this in case some might have not seen it.

Nah, that would be too easy and would make too much sense.  We must trade!

I could see us getting Pageau or Reinhart. Hoffman would be awesome if he became available, but the cost would be too much.

Something like Hutton & Scam Gagme to Mtl

 

for Andrew Shaw(lousy contract, but feisty) & Jordie Benn(or Schlemko)

I don't see how that trade would make the Canucks any better...

Sam Reinhart? He is going to cost quite a bit more than Pageau would. Hoffman would be a scoring winger option, I think if we went after a top 6 winger we would want some grit. Maybe Boone Jenner type?

The roster freeze is in a week - from the 19th to the 27th.  Players cannot be traded, waived or loaned during that time.

 

Once the freeze is lifted there will only be 3 games left until the 4 week mark for both Horvat and Baertschi.  

I think a decent GM would observe not trading anyone well before that cut off date... Hard to make a move in Dec I imagine. I'd be interested in whos been traded in December..

I love Andrew Shaw and would be all for this. His contract was perfectly fine for what he did on the Blackhawks. But take him away from that dynamic and it's lost. He is a bruiser.
