HFOil signs Law! (sort of) / jumptheshark placed on waivers

Edmonton (HFPress) - In what may be a real case of trick-or-treat, HFOil may get a boost on the GDT creation front. And it may happen sooner rather than later.

After almost a full season of laying low on the trade front, HFOil GM Cloned let it slip Halloween night that the board was looking at several options to boost the forum's sagging GDT record.

"I know my own record as GDT maker hasn't been stellar this season," stated Cloned matter-of-factly. "The fact that there was a thread made on accountability was the last straw. I felt I had to do something."

Cloned didn't reveal who exactly he was looking at signing, but he made it clear that bygones should remain bygones. "What's happened in the past between myself and certain posters demanding trades - I think we've both matured a lot since then and there's interest on both sides."

The crusty HFOil GM did reveal when he expected a deal, if any, to go down. "We'll get it signed and dotted sometime within the next 24 hours. He'll be ready for the game against the Islanders. All prospective current GDT makers on this board should be warned that the new arrival may post his GDT a little early on Sunday night."

Before leaving, Cloned left reporters with some news to chew on. "Nah, I'm not trading Mowzie again. His wit has rebounded one hundred-fold since coming back. But Oilbleeder, well, expect the unexpected."

Stay tuned for more information.

UPDATE:

"The Law Returns"

Edmonton (HFPress) - HFOil GM Cloned made history tonight when he announced HF's first ever "shared GDT agreement." At an unusually quiet night on the boards - perhaps a sign that GDT creation is becoming less popular on HFOil - Cloned introduced the signing of former GDT poster Law to a one-game tryout. In what was the worst kept secret on HFOil, Cloned revealed his thoughts on signing Law again after a tumultuous end to their professional relationship last season.

"I'm disappointed that I couldn't get exclusive GDT posting rights with Law. But I am relieved to be able to convince him to do this for us. We'll see if this tryout will extend any further, especially if we make the *cough*, but I feel this board could use Law's creativity. Rin wasn't having a spectacular start to the season, and myself, I have to step back and look at the big picture."

Law was asked if he harboured any resentment toward Cloned at last season's trade/re-trade debacle.

"Well, I think we've both matured a fair bit. Sure, he asked me for 2 million donairs before he traded me back to HFNYI, but I think we've both moved on from that unfortunate incident. I'm excited to post a GDT here again."

Cloned also addressed the rumours he would be promoted into the administration of HFOil, leaving GM duties to his protege, -Ryan-.

"Well, Cerebral hates -Ryan-, but other than that, I have no comment."

To make room for Law on the roster, HFOil has placed veteran poster jumptheshark on waivers. He will be sent to HFOtherSports for conditioning and practice to work on his grammar and spelling.

"We feel jts brought a lot to this forum in the past. He created one of this board's most memorable phrases - everyone will remember him for his aviater. But it's time to move on," Cloned explained.

I think we can waive DSF (we tried to trade him for a 7th rounder but there were no takers). Vancouver would probably pick him up.

Toes here is obviously the steal of the century. I'm the best deal since Canada for a dollar.

This is a obvious trick. You're trying to pull a Brian Murray with the Daylight Savings and whatnot aren't you?

It wouldn't have anything to do with the NYI game on Monday?

Not to mention I'm 2-0 in my GDT efforts so far, and we've scored a total of 12 goals in those games. If you did turn around and trade me, I think my trade value is very high right now. I do have a band-aid on my left index finger which has slowed my typing down a little though, so if you move me, you might have to throw in a conditional pick in case the finger gets infected.

Slowly slide your hands off the keyboard and push it in before it has a chance to spring back out.







Of course, I mean the disk I sent you containing the secret contract negotiations. Put that in your computer's disk drive.

HAHA. Remember last year when you said something inappropriate in your facebook status and your mom commented on it, lol. That was my all time favorite internet moment. Keep it clean, you never know when your mom will log into her hf account.

I had something stupid written before. Then I thought of something better and edited it.

Sad thing is, I already forgot what I originally wrote.

I'm sure your fingers will be moving fast and furious as you hammer away at the keyboard after seeing who I signed tomorrow.
