      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.

[Rumour] Nick Kypreos says Canucks have had interest in Mike Hoffman

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

 

Make of it what you will. Kypreos was on Sportsnet 650 about 20 minutes chatting. I didn't hear the radio discussion myself but I did run into this tweet.  I'm not sure if the team would still remain interested, given how young and impressionable the locker room is. Perhaps, if the rumours are true it could be a rallying and educational point for the kids. I cant imagine the Canucks want the drama now though.

Red flags all around, absolutely not interested.

"Have had interest"

 

I'm sure that was before this news broke. Do you really think that he's the kind of leadership and character they wanna bring in?

 

Not worth the risk.

I think your right.  It would be a big risk bringing him into a young and impressionable dressing room. Even if the stories are unfounded.

Maybe it'd be easier to just tell me who the Canucks are not interested in.

Also heard Rintoul say just now, “that the asking price drastically dropped a couple weeks ago, which got other teams to ask the Sens why.  The Sens didn’t disclose the Hoffman gf stuff about to go public.”  Hoffman has zero value now.

Dreger seems to think the offer will still be half decent.

 

 

I'd pay Baerstchi + a D prospect like Sautner or McEnemy.

The damage to his reputation is done.

 

Even if there's no truth to the allegations the media will not let it go. 

 

We don't need that kind of distraction in the dressing room. We've had our fill of distractions over the last 6 years.

It is unfair if it is untrue.

Would you have said this to Tyler Seguin? Would you say it about Patrick Kane? At some pt you gotta take a chance on guys. This team could use a player at his age and talent level pretty badly right now. 

He is fast and has "speed, speed, speed".  Is a winger tho. Would be an upgrade over Baerstchi.

Rather have an over abundance of rumours than Golf-playing-on-deadline-day-Gillis sweating an interview away with only excuses.
