      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 wonder if one of those trades was to Vancouver. We need a bonafide 1st line LW, and he provides that. We have pieces that Carolina can use.

Lol it would take a lot more than that, I'm not even sure I'd want to pay the price. Have wanted Skinner on the team for a long time, but he's one year away from UFA and is going to be looking for a big pay day.

The conversation probably starts and ends with one of our top prospects, Benning should just hang up the phone on anyone who asks for Horvat, Boeser, Pettersson, Gaudette, Dahlen, Virtanen, Juolevi, Hughes, or Demko

One the one hand, if the team obviously wants you gone then pick a place you'll go to already.....

 

On the other hand, he's earned the right to call the shots as it's in his contract, so.....

 

Can't see this not getting done before next season - Canes new owner obviously gave Waddell a mandate to change the culture/identity of the team immediately.

I don't buy this rumour.

 

How many teams are lining up to take Skinner at 6.0 million, with one year of term -  at the price the Canes are reportedly asking?

 

My guess would be not a single one.

 

If the price were a fraction of the rumoured ask, perhaps they'd have a suitor or two.

 

I can't take this seriously at all - I doubt there's been a single deal to nix.

Isn't strickland just as reliable as Eklund?

 

That said, to ship out Lindholm, Hanifin, and Skinner in the same weekend would be insane

From all the rumored the new owners are players by hardball.  Contract negotiations have gone nowhere with RFAs.

I suspect the relationship isn’t good enough for them to sit and come up with a good solution for both parties.

I think that market is going to get a disappointing wake up call if/when they manage to move Skinner.

 

The hype around him has been laughable.

 

I saw a source peddling a proposal of Skinner and the 42nd pick to Vancouver for the 7th overall and Goldobin. 

That is sheer delusional.

And I think the story that he's nixed mulitpile deals is equally laughable.

Good job of Leafs-esque attempts to oversell your assets through your media wings, but getting the hopes of Canes up, believing they're getting a bluechip + 1st type return - I'll believe that when I see it.

I wouldn't swap him one for one for a handful of the UFA forwards entering the market.  Do they really think they're going to sell him prior to free agency for that kind of return.

I must be missing something.

He’s only as reliable as like Dan Murphy or something. I think he does the same kind of gig as Murph but for the Blues. I also think he is/was a sports columnist in st Louis as well.

What another rumor started buy the media? A twitter report that has no merit wierd.

 But ALL their sources seemed to serve them so well at the draft. 

Twitter has made anyone who can type an insider.

Sounds like he has been hanging up already while trying to gain extra picks for the draft.
