How could we even put up a legit trade offer for Doughty without ruining our team?

Kane, Burmistrov, Enstrom.

I put so much because the only way Doughty ever leaves is if he is overpaid by some crazy amount.

Lol, There is no chance Schenn will ever and I mean ever become a Jet. He will be a Leaf for life.

Seriously that's easy marketing. With all the hoopla over the Jets new Logo unveil he thinks "hey what a great time to make a Jets trade rumor to get traffic on my website."
What a tool. Neither of those players will be a Jet.
Doesn't he know that all of the Jets fans are lined up at the store to get a t-shirt?

Again I get the hate, I do, I really really do but does that deter a hockey conversation from happening ?

Why is this any different then someone posting Speculation in front of it apposed to Ecklund ?

Hockey forum for hockey talk, get over it guys. Seems to me some people are just jealous that someone gets paid to do something they don't.


For the people who are not blinded by hate, what could the trades be ?

Doughty would fetch a huge price, Schenns price would be lower but still team changing big.

Would the Jets really be bold enough to offer sheet two of the most free spending teams in the league ?

It makes perfect sense for the Jets to offer sheet Doughty

The chances it will happen?

Without Canadian teams, there is no NHL. Sorry to burst your bubble, but hockey is a Canadian sport.

Can we all finally agree that it's time to put an end to the Eklund rumors and Eklund prefix on posts on these boards?

It is so commonly mentioned that Eklund generates these bogus rumors simply to drive traffic to his site for egotistical or monetary gain. Is Hockey's Future really doing the same thing"?

As a long-time user, former moderator and sponsor of this site, I have genuinely believed in the quality and integrity of Hockey's Future and HF Boards; and I'm sure many of our fellow members are in the same boat. Is it not time we prove this is the case and put a ban on this Eklund nonsense? Because if not, I think our opinions and enjoyment of this site are going to erode.

Without Canadian teams the league would be operating at 77% capacity. That can be maintained for a year or 2 before they fill it with other American Cities.

The only thing that gets this done is a trade. Yeah Drew, do you wanna sign or we can trade you to Winnipeg? Flipflops or sorels, I don't know? I'm one of the few who loves Winnipeg...great city, but Im betting Drew would rather stay in LA.

If the Jets sent an offer sheet to anyone, prepare to kiss Winnipeg goodbye. If I was a GM, and they sent an offer sheet to my players, I'd offer sheet their team out of the NHL. It would not be smart for Winnipeg to upset other teams at this point.

You can't just choose to kick someone out of the league.
