      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.

Actually I see I team in transition. A team that is adding various elements to the roster. Your banal generalizations speak to your basic and elementary understanding of the sport in general. You clearly ape all of your crap from various whiny hockey bloggers who are equally devoid of knowledge.

 

Did the circus call yet to see where you went?

I don't see how we land Nylander for Tanev (I am not a fan of Nylander's game anyhow - he's gutless). I think Tanev is worth a Kapanen or a Dermott and a 2nd or 3rd round pick. I'd rather have a less skilled but grittier player that can still play top 6 like Kapanen anyhow.

Nylander is garbage leafs can keep him.. wont stop our GM fro blowing a trade though like I said we gunna get a second or a third for tanev and then be told it was market value and was all we could get

Well.  You're not the only one that thinks this will be another top 10 pick.  EVERYONE does.  But for the first time since the "incident" after the twins totally took over the team from Naslund/Bertuzzi we have new young blood for the core.  We have a depth of skilled prospects, hard nosed bottom 6 players and will be exciting and not cycling, dumping and chasing.

 

For the first time since 2011 we have something to be genuinely excited over.

 

But claiming Benning will trade our best trade chip for literally nothing and putting your money on it.

 

Man

 

Really?

Ya...I've been a fan as long or longer.  

 

You're wrong.

 

You don't like Benning fine.  But basing it off of signing UFA's that fit a near perfect timeline to development and contention is kind of silly.  Not being able to see how much cap he's shed, how he has now dropped the average age of the roster by over 6 years even with his older UFA signings, not being able to appreciate his drafting.  

 

Very VERY shortsighted.  If you want instant gratification go to a McDonalds.  If you want to actually sit back and look at a long term picture.  Well, you'll see an actual 3 course meal is being prepared.

 

Good things don't happen overnight and every single cup winning team over the last 8 years proves that

Nylander would be a top 3 scoring threat on our team.  You can claim he's garbage but he puts up points with style and while he's not especially hard to play against he's a pure offensive threat.

 

Back to your claims of our GM messing up a trade that hasn't happened yet.  Quick heads up.  The ONLY people that will be whining about the return on a Tanev thread are the people who somehow believe he will bring back the world in picks and prospects.

 

The value YOU put on him after drinking the Kool aid is not the value other GMs put on him.  Often injured, non offensive threat.  Decent shot blocker, great shot suppression.  His value is lower than what most everyone wants it to be.  

 

Sounds like you're just creating reasons to complain and or argue.  It's summer.  Go outside, enjoy the sun

Jack Hughes is the big prize at next year’s draft.  If we get good odds of getting Quinn's brother by being bad this coming season, so be it.  We will be a fabulous team soon enough anyway, but getting Jack to go with Quinn makes us super fabulous!  :frantic:

I'd say a 2nd or a team's 3rd or 4th best/most redundant almost NHL ready prospect is around where Tanev's value is considering he misses 20+ games a season. Benning can argue that well on a better team where he's not having to log such brutal minutes he'll be more durable, but then you can't ask for the same return that you could if he was a durable heavy minute top-pairing guy.

 

Maybe his value increases at the trade deadline... if Tanev survives that far.

 

I just don't expect a return anywhere near the return that the Larsson trade seemed to imply for Tanev.

Wouldn't that be special? Hey we waited for the twins to arrive, was it two years? I wouldn't mind waiting another couple for all of the kids in the system, and the next few years drafts. The Coilers, and Leafs have screwed the pooch for so long it isn't even funny anymore.
