      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] Brendan Smith, Marcus Kruger, Josh Jooris

Recommended Posts

Vancouver needs to sign Brendan Smith asap. Although I have no idea what is wrong with him considering he's been waived after signing a 4 year 17 mil contract . He always been a positive possesson and plus player. His corsi for has always been good too even this year. Easy decision imo, then you can trade edler or Hutton.

Peters went on a rant last week.  Talked of how there was complacency and guys not battling hard enough to win.  He pretty much demanded roster changes.  Looks like it's happening.

I wouldn't mind Brendan Smith, as long as we can trade Hutton.

Very surprised to see Smith getting waived. Kruger too to an extent.

Kruger maybe depending on how long Gagner is out?

Kruger is over 3M for 6 points so far this season (and a minus player). Doesn't surprise me that he would be in the first on the chopping block. 

 

Smith is a shocker for me though. What a sudden pivot on the team perception of him.

3.08M for another season.  How many players who can't produce should a team have on their roster.

He has a modified NTC - 7 teams where he can't get traded to.

Nobody is going to claim Smith with three more years at $4.35M per year. The Rangers are doing this so they can trade him with retained salary after he clears waivers.

Is Jooris a physical player? I don’t know anything about him really

Basically a typical 4th line grinder. Didn't do much when he was in Calgary either

Exactly this. That contract is going to make it hard to move him considering that he has been struggling this year.

 

At $3 million or less I would have taken a gamble on him but not a chance I want the Canucks to be stuck with that contract till 2021.

No thanks to all of them.  Smith would be fine if his contract was way lower, but he doesn't bring enough to the table to warrant that contract.

Smith was a head scratcher of a contract - not surprised to see Gorton wanting out of it.

Meh, we don't particularly need the $1m in cap space it would create and we do need warm bodies. He's also extremely solid defensively and on the PK which is better than nothing.
