Please follow these simple rules when posting trade proposals with EDM.

1) if your trade makes Edmonton worse today, don't propose it. We have all suffered long enough and have zero patience for 'look how awesome you'll be when Horvat and Tanev are in their primes!'
2) if your trade is asking for Eberle/Hall/RNH/Yak in a quantity for quality deal, don't post it unless it contains a quality D-Man or a player in the Wheeler/Lucic/Ladd mould.
3) if your trade proposal contains a 2nd round pick 'to offset the value) go bang your head on a wall somewhere.
4) if you are in our division and your trade proposal involves a future star going to your team, consider long and hard what the Schneider ask was. 'Fair Value' doesn't exist in inter division trades especially when we're talking about a potential 40 goal scorer.
Finally, 5) while our management decisions seem to be based on Rohrschach tests from flung monkey poo, most of us aren't stupid. Real trades don't work like NHL 14 - to get a high potential player like Yak you'll have to give up something you REALLY don't want to.
