      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.

Terrible deal. Leafs $&!# the bed on this one. Old man Plekanac for the playoff run? lol.. 

They add Plekanec. They keep JVR and Bozak.  Yet their fans refuse to add to the one area they need the most.  Defense.  A shot suppression Defensemen at that.   Who has the best available shot suppression D man... hmmm..

Toronto sure is fortunate to have Babcock putting lipstick on the work of that management group.

LouLam had some pieces to work with when he arrived, won a lottery, otherwise has done a really unimpressive job in Toronto.

Hmm..TBay must have something planned, with the 2 div-rivals making moves?

 

Also, Philly seems quiet..but with their overachieving yr, perhaps they make a big move(Simmonds out too)?

 

Just awoke here(Asia time) to all these moves occurring..gotta play catch-up!

Markov could have still contributed this year considering the tire fire Montreal’s defence has been. But yeah. you have the move Plekanec and get those assets.  There’s still a chance Plekanec plays his 1000 game as a Hab if they bring him back (at a greatly reduced salary) via free agency 

Sounds like a high price for a guy that has agreed to sign back with Montreal if true. As for Plekanec's career, it will forever be stained with Leaf colours. Thank goodness the Sedins won't have that on their record.

not sure why TB would be too concerned

both their 'rivals' overspent on declining rentals.

TB on the other hand is still better than eiither of them and is relatively stinking asset wealthy - whereas Toronto is spending their future - the second year runnng they spent 2nd round picks - this time on a 35 year old.  At least he'll fit right in i with Hainsey, Marleau, Moore.  #proper-rebuild.

Still could see them adding..with how much Pitt has awoken. Bet they'd like CT, quite a bit.

What the hell is Benning doing right now? He better get some draft picks out of this deadline, if he does not then it would be a total failure for the Canucks. I was disappointed that they signed Gudbranson instead of trading him for something, anything. All I saw was Benning trying to cover up his mistake but it only made it worst in the end. I just hope he doesn't sign the Sedins again.

basically Nash has 28 points this season , Plekanek has 24 points.

Vaenk has 41 points.

 

Looks like Vancouver will get a pretty good bounty for trading Vanek before the deadline 

I'd take Vanek over Nash who is useless in big games and old man turtleneck wearing Plekanek. At least Vanek shows emotions unlike those 2.

Plekanec is a great addition for a team looking to go deep in the playoffs, but is Toronto really that team? They have to get past Boston and Tampa Bay just to get out of the 2nd round.

 

Good return for Montreal, surprising to see them add a defenseman this time :P
