Do NHL GM's come to HF and look at the proposals ?

Do you guys think that NHL GM's come in this section and look at proposals , possibly giving the GM an idea or a start for a possible real-life trade? I know if my trade got done in real life , I'd feel like a genius.

Yes.

All GM's look towards HF for trade advice.

Has any of the proposals actually come true? I'd laugh if it was, but one probably did

Yeah, some trades have been called. Erik Johnson trade comes to mind, as well as the Olesz - Campbell one.

And yes, I believe NHL GMs and players alike visit online hockey websites infrequently just to laugh at us.

I heard that it's a mandatory requirement for NHL GM's to regularly post on HF, y'know.

Several, actually, and we've been on the right track a handful of times too. JvR for Schenn, the Carter trade, etc.

I'm sure an nhl gm has at some point visited this website, i highly doubt any one of them peruses the trade forum regularly though

Definitely not. HF (as a collective unit of posters) has some pretty massive biases and relatively poor understanding of certain aspects of player value. It wouldn't make much sense for a GM to come here unless he wanted to factor in fanbase reaction into a decision.

It wouldn't shock me in the slightest. Might as well use fans as scouts essentially and see what they think. Why not? Although, it's not as if they use the values on here at all.

That being said , do you think it's a possibility that GM's make an account and propose a trade to see the reaction of the fan base ?

Also, all NHL coaches visit the EA forums to get ideas from people for lines and strategies.

Maybe some of them do, not for trade advice per say, mostly to just get a good laugh in if they are having a bad day.

Considering his views on goaltending, I'm pretty sure palindrom really is Brian Burke.

I'm Greg Sherman.

I tried acquiring Bozak and a 2nd for Stastny from Brian. He turned down my offer.

Please tell me you are not serious. Seriously, I am begging you to tell me that you are only joking.
