      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.

Recommended Posts

Was just listening to sat and his crew of donkeys on 650 whining about signing EG. what a bunch of trolls, it’s as if they don’t even watch the games and just check stat lines after to draw their conclusions. “ news flash” haters he’s not here to score goals he’s here to clear the crease and make things easier for our goaltenders .

limited ntc are not an issue in my opinion. Its full on NMC or NTC for the entire deal that are the crippling ones.

 

Gudbranson 5yr 19m 10 team no trade list throughout the deal. 21 teams he can go team lots of room for a move down the road

I think Gudbranson would be a good guy to pair with Juolevi. Bigger stay at home physical D to watch out for our prized D prospect when he enters the league.

Totally. He’s going to provide much needed leadership back there especially when/if this team makes the playoffs in the next few years

What idiocy in the comments.  I just don't get it, it's like some sort of obsessive-compulsive group despair.  No, the (real) fans do not "want him out of here"; in fact, no doubt the ones that do say that are the same ones parroting Pratt and Botchford's whining about "no pushback."  It's 1984 doublethink and doublespeak.

 

As if a single defenceman making $4mil for a few years will completely destroy the team.  It's even worse than the obsessiveness over Sbisa.  Embarrassing, frankly.

Probably around the same percentage of 'real fans' that were upset about the Benning re-up. I believe they accounted for around 7-8% in the CDC poll :lol:

 

Sorry 'real fans', your a vocal but decided minority. Suck it.

 

As for your last paragraph, I had to laugh at 'Murph' on the 650 this morning parroting that nonsense as well. The Canucks have ZERO cap issues for whatever the term on Erik's contract is likely to be. I'm not saying we should pay him anything close to $6m but we likely 'could' and it wouldn't remotely effect our cap situation (short of perhaps setting a poor precedent).

 

He was also going on about 'if he's on your 3rd pairing...' nonsense. You pay the player for the player they are, not where he falls on your depth chart. Was he a '3rd pair D' a month ago? Is he a '1st pair D' now that he's playing on the 1st pair with Edler? Absolute stupidity :picard:

And to think, he was the "reasonable counter-balance" to Pratt when on 1040.  Maybe they told him, "Hey, now that you're here we need you to switch over to Vancouver Sports Media Mode and start the standard whinging and thrashing of the team and management.  Got it?"

Once the anti-Gudbranson crowd were challenged over their despising of him, they would settle into "better not overpay him", as if we have cap issues.  The comments today by Aynsley Scott exemplify that our cap is being handled beautifully.  We have TONNES of space coming up, and all the contracts that have been complained about (Sutter, Eriksson, and now Gudbranson) expire right at the time when our primary ELCs will need re-upping. 

 

I'd really like to hear what Gilman thinks of how they're structuring things.

 

Btw, he has a whole string of tweets today that are right on the money in regards to where this team is at and where it's going.

look for the canucks to resign Vanek before the deadline and for the twins to announce retirement.

Source?  Or wishful thinking ;)

 

Would rather they get an asset for Vanek regardless of what the Sedins do.  We need the roster spots, perhaps even all three, but can always re-sign him if the kids project to look ready.  Moving him now also gives us a spot to audition some kids, whether cycling them in from Utica or bringing in college FAs like Molino last year or perhaps even Gaudette if he's available.

I agree on the asset for Vanek but he has been a very good roll model for Virtanen from what some are saying and I think they are going to reward him as such.

Was listening to his assessment on where the Canucks are at and where this signing will fit in and be a non-factor in any other plans the team may or may not have in terms of negatively impacting cap. This guy knows his stuff!

Ugh not sure why I listen to any of them what a bunch of blow hards. You’re right about sat though he seemed decent on 1040. They must’ve told him       “ we need more drama and negativity towards the team if you want to make it in this biz”

He used to be one of the few voices of reason on 1040 :lol:

Considering the source... which isn't a source cuz he has none and nobody else reported such a thing.  Same with the Guddy 4x4, probably just guessing or going by what others think.

He was close on Guddy
