      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.

I am not sold that the Sharks are a very long term option to win, Big Joe is just old, Burns is what 33.  I see them really a lot like we were coming off our finals visit, they have had their shot and missed and are on downward trend. 

 

Sharks are my front runner for landing tavares. One JT out another JT in. 

Sharks have plenty of cap to do it and they could still have some left over to land kane if they move some pieces around. Now that would be scary.

I am not sold that the Sharks are a very long term option to win, Big Joe is just old, Burns is what 33.  I see them really a lot like we were coming off our finals visit, they have had their shot and missed and are on downward trend.  From a lifestyle factor, not sure what Vancouver is offering over the Bay area.  Certainly the fact that Canada is a much nicer place to live than the US is somewhat mitigated by the fact that he is rich.  Money, Vancouver could probably offer the most but really shouldn't, it will just cripple the cap that will be spending a lot at the least important position for winning, the wing.

 

I think he is something we could use.  It would help us be more competitive and give a big nasty winger to ride shotgun with EP.  I don't think he would be the kind of mistake that Lucic and Loui were though if things go the wrong way signing him could blow up big time.

 

He is big, young, fast and nasty at times and scores.  He is everything you want in a player on the ice, everything you hoped to see from Jake and from Guddy and haven't got yet.  

You have some good points. Many people have said that wingers don't influence the game quite as much as a centre, but Ovechkin and to a lesser extent Boeser has proven that they can. Eriksson is not a plug. Prior to signing Vancouver, he has had three 30 goal seasons. Is he worth the 6 mill? Probably not; however, we haven't had the type of talent that could play with his style (Sedins worked well with Eriksson on the international stage, but that never translated to the same extent in the NHL).  Eriksson's a hard worker though.

 

Kane could still help Vancouver, but I think Tavares would be a better fit for the team. That being said, he probably won't sign with us. There are more attractive teams out there that want his services.

I would agree with that Dazzle and absolutely I will take JT over him as would anyone.  Well Eriksson is not a plug, he has struggled in the past with transitions to new teams and systems and is just getting older.  While he was brought in as the final third Sedin it just never meshed.  The issue is still though that he represent $6M in cap spent on the wing and Boesser will soon be 8+.  To add another lets be conservative and say $7M winger in Kane would be tough.  Ovechkin is a generational winger and has done some mazing things but win in the playoffs is not one of them.  Who was the last Stanley cup winner that was carried by a winger, maybe Patrick Kane though can't separate him from  the significance contributions Toews and Keith.

 

Just don't see us being contender for JT though he just happens to fit a gaping hole in the organization.  And hey as per Forsberg, if the Sharks land JT then sure I would look at them differently.

OV's team is 7 wins from hoisting the Stanley Cup.

No it wouldn't. They will overpay Kane and he will disappear again.

I agree.  Any team, hopefully it’s the Sharks, that signs Evander is making a mistake.

I don't know that you can call a likely 20+ goal scorer a "mistake" but it sounds like SJS liked what they saw:

 

“He’s difference-maker,” Sharks GM Doug Wilson said. “He had a clean slate. He wants to be a great player, we did our research, he came in here and he’s judged by his actions and his experiences here. He played through a couple of injuries. I think he fit in very well with this group, not only as a player but as a person.”

I envision Kane playing on a line with Pettersson and Eriksson.  Kane will provide the protection and physicality for Pettersson and hopefully Eriksson can get some new life in his legs playing with his young Swedish countryman.  That could be a great second line in behind the Baertschi, Horvat and Boeser line.
