      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 still think that Ferland is "that" depth playoff performer that every team needs to go deep into the playoffs. You know the "average" regular season guy that excels during a deep run. It's not so much that I think he will do that in Carolina - because they are not going to be contenders anytime soon - but I'm happy that a turd team like Calgary lost him :lol:

He disappeared in the Ducks series.

 

Imo the biggest win for the Canes is if they can get Fox to sign.

Pretty comparable numbers after a small 10 game sample with their new teams.

 

Both these forwards lead their new teams in goal scoring.

 

Ferland with 6 in 10 games - also leads the Hurricanes in hits with 28.

 

Lindholm with 7 goals in 11 games - leads the Lames in faceoff wins and % at 57.7%

 

They both also have pretty solid 'underlying' numbers - Ferland with 55.3% ozone starts and 58.3% corsi, Lindholm with 47.6% ozone starts and 50.9% corsi.

 

 

Hamilton with 1 goal and 3 assists through 10 games probably not quite what Carolina was hoping/expecting - but still early.

Hanifiin with a pair of assists - not bad considering he has the lowest ozone starts on the Lames.  A bit surprising that he's playing slightly more minutes than Hamilton at this stage.

Who would have thought that the two best players in this trade was Lindholm for Ferland, lmfao.

Ferland is ripping it up in Carolina, same for Lindholm in Calgary. I've got both in my pool. I also have Hamilton but he's had a slow start. I had Hanifin too but he is off to an even slower start than Hamilton is.

Ferland is a rare player, you just don't find those easily. He is like a hybrid of Tom Wilson and Brad Marchand. Somehow he can walk the line, even stepping over without being punished and his offensive game has improved every year. The player I wish virtanen could be. I don't doubt at all that he would have been the main target for Waddel and tough for the flames to part with.

 

Both teams seem happy thus far but if Carolina can sign fox they win this deal for sure.

Totally impressed with Ferlund the playoff round that he slapped the Canucks around. Obvious he was willing to do what it took to stay in the NHL. He probably convinced the Canucks that, yes, a rebuild was actually needed.
