Re: Cond 7th round pick[edit]


a short digging revealed nothing for the Jaffray-McMillan trade. It would probably be the best to just put the trade into the table twice (once for each team) and hope that others add in any conditions.

Speaking of conditions, the condition from the Christensen trade should be ressolved as the player has signed with KHL club Lev Praha. The pick should therefore now belong to the Rangers. If you add in the two rows for Anaheim and Calgary, could you transfer this pick to "mainspace" as well? Thanks, Soccer-holicI hear voices in my head... 08:10, 17 July 2012 (UTC)

Weird iron man streak rule[edit]

Hi there. I noticed you reverted the ending of the iorn man streak for the NHL player. If you have some information to provide that explains the different definitions (by sport) as to what constitutes an iron man streak, the info could be helpful to people who read the article. It would be great if you could add something to the article to that effect. Stylteralmaldo (talk) 17:34, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

2013 NHL transactions VS 2014 NHL transactions[edit]

I've been holding off to starting the 2013–14 NHL transactions page until the contract turn-over, starting July 5 (effectively July 1). As it stands these pages are fairly arbitrary for when they start, but I was hoping to structure it now and for the future such that they run from July 1 to June 30 of the next year and are book-ended by the turn-over of player contracts. Just bringing it up to you, as I noticed you were the one that moved my New York/Minnesota trade to the new page.

Having the NHL Entry Draft as the turn-over also makes sense, except then there may be multiple "June" sections on each season's thread - like we have this year already.

RE 2013 NHL transactions VS 2014 NHL transactions[edit]

No worries! No real right or wrong way to do this! Uncleben85 (talk) 19:51, 30 June 2013 (UTC)

2014 NHL Entry Draft/Arizona Coyotes[edit]

Sorry Deadman! I hadn't noticed the piece in the Talk page when I edited the Draft page. I'll defer to your judgement on that; I know the name change is the tentative plan, however I'm curious if you've seen anywhere that says the name change is 100% in effect yet? Last I read was back in August, after the sale. At that time Anthony LeBlanc said they would "eventually" become the Arizona Coyotes.

“(The name change) will not happen until, at minimum, the 2014-15 season,”(Team's Name Will Eventually Become 'Arizona Coyotes'

Again, the plan is for 2014-15, but is that something we should leave until finalized?

Temporal home for traded picks from 2016 and 2017[edit]

As New Jersey just traded a conditional third-round pick in 2017 to Carolina, and this article will not be created before next year's trade deadline at the very least, we could utilize User:Soccer-holic/Draft picks as a temporary home for saving the information (as well as anything for the 2016 Draft) until there is enough information available for creating proper articles, if you like. That userspace page was created a couple of years ago for that exact purpose, so feel free to add. --Soccer-holicI hear voices in my head... 19:21, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

NHL Draft Order[edit]

FYI, it looks like the NHL will be using the same draft order as last year, per a press release they just put out here, so I have updated the draft page accordingly. Canuck89 (what's up?) 08:50, May 20, 2014 (UTC)

2014 NHL Draft Edits[edit]

Not a big deal, but I noticed you changed my edits of "the Montreal Canadiens" and "the Edmonton Oilers" to just "Montreal" and "Edmonton", respectively. I'm mostly just curious why you did this. The standard to me seemed like, 'for each trade, link each team involved, the first time their name appears'. Uncleben85 (talk) 14:56, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

I guess I am little confused, because, yes they were previously traded picks, but even taking into account the previous transaction - let's look at the 7th round Panthers pick for example,
  1. The Florida Panthers’ seventh-round pick was re-acquired as the result of a trade on July 5, 2013 that sent George Parros to Montreal in exchange for Philippe Lefebvre and this pick.
         Montreal previously acquired this pick as the result of a trade on June 30, 2013 that sent a seventh-round pick in 2013 to Florida in exchange for this pick.
nowhere there is Montreal linked or referenced by nickname - not in the most recent transaction nor in the previous one. -Uncleben85 (talk) 00:32, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Makes sense to me! Thanks for clearing that up. -Uncleben85 (talk) 20:16, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

I know I'm proposing a lot of changes to a fairly conservative hockey community, but I vote we continue to separate each round-table from the the round-notes. It creates a jump link in the contents table, making the page more navigable. Thoughts against it? -Uncleben85 (talk) 02:33, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

Future considerations past[edit]

Thank you for keeping the NHL Entry Draft articles, including all trades and conditional trades, in impeccable shape. With appreciation for your expertise in this area, do you have any information on what “future considerations” were involved in the January 21, 2013 trade which saw Jean-Francois Jacques traded from the Florida Panthers to the Tampa Bay Lightning for future considerations? Cheers! Dolovis (talk) 19:21, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

NHL Transactions[edit]

Personally, I would prefer to keep all the transactions on the current page until July 1, but consensus doesn't seem to be there still, hahaha. So for now I'm putting them on the current page until 1) the draft starts or 2) somebody moves them over to the new page, and we go from there, but I'm holding off on initiating it! :P

With that being said, the Coyotes website is using Arizona, but they said the change would be done at the draft (other releases from them do just say "draft day"). Is it worth having "Phoenix Coyotes" and "Arizona Coyotes" on the same page, or should we just wait until the new one opens up? (If we move all of today's transactions over to the new page it would make sense to start it as "Arizona"). -Uncleben85 (talk) 21:51, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Re: Draftees based on league[edit]

I want to propose adding a "draftees based on league" table. I imagine readers would be equally interested in an aggregation of which leagues future NHL players are coming from as much as which countries they are coming from. A table of the top 5 leagues would probably suffice. Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mb34 (talkcontribs) 17:54, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

All other NHL draft articles[edit]

All other NHL draft articles that you had no part of format it the way I did. So what are we going to do, change all articles pre 2012 to the formatting you like or just change the last couple of years. I'll leave it to you to see if you want to follow your own advice of following the convention.-- Everyone Dies In the End (talk) 20:40, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

Accusing me of uncivil behaviour when all I said is you aren't following the advice you are giving is in itself uncivil because it's a false accusation. Not to mention you ignored Wikipedia:Assume Good Faith completely. I will not be going any further about this as my goal isn't to start a fight and just trying to improve Wikipedia. I said pre 2012 that means 2011 and 2010. My question is still why didn't you change it to the way 2010 and 2011 when you were editing the 2012 page? From the advice you gave me you should have. Next yours or my preferences don't matter in this case. The only thing that matters is we follow Wikipedia:Manual of Style that adheres to all wikipedia pages (not just NHL draft pages) where I'm currently asking for on the correct style that should be used in articles. All examples for in the Manual of Style for lists do it the way I do; However, I'm still asking for clarification.-- Everyone Dies In the End (talk) 09:46, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
I have asked Wikipedia: Manual of Style and all seem to agree that this is the proper way to do it. as it'll count the numbers for you (something mine didn't do) and it's clear. If you don't mind I can handle the formatting change.
  1. The Minnesota Wild's second-round pick will go to the Montreal Canadiens as the result of a trade on July 1, 2014 that sent Josh Gorges to Buffalo in exchange for this pick.
    Buffalo previously acquired this pick as the result of a trade on March 5, 2014 that sent Matt Moulson and Cody McCormick to Minnesota in exchange for Torrey Mitchell, Winnipeg's second-round pick in 2014 and this pick.

-- Everyone Dies In the End (talk) 20:43, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

I also realize I was kind of being a smart ass too. So sorry about that.-- Everyone Dies In the End (talk) 20:50, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

When should Draft articles be created?[edit]

I know you're the one who usually does a lot of work on these draft pages, so I started a discussion on when the creation of draft articles would be appropriate, so hopefully we won't have to go through another 2016 mess again. The thread is on the hockey talk page. Canuck89 (converse with me) 01:51, July 21, 2014 (UTC)

Apologies on the Entry Draft nonsense[edit]

I'd like to apologize for that disturbance on the 2015 draft page. I had read that it was the Blues, and the Sportsnet article was just a misunderstanding on my part. I had forgetting the Islanders became good LOL — Preceding unsigned comment added by Spilia4 (talkcontribs) 21:00, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

My apologies as well - specifically regarding the conditional picks table. Putting in a new reference link was just oversight on my part, and as for reference formatting, I was using the one from the transactions page; I didn't think it'd be an issue. I would say that the reference should, however, be changed from the TSN article to the official NHL release. TSN is valid, but if we have an official statement why not use it. Also, you also took issue with my sorting, which I don't agree with. It's been done for a while that the picks are (obviously) sorted by draft round and then if there are multiple picks in the same round, they have been sorted by date of original trade. The current two first rounders in the table are done that way, but the 3rd round and 7th round duplicates are not. I will be resorting those to at least keep the table consistent. -Uncleben85 (talk) 05:01, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

Re: Re: Apologies on the Entry Draft nonsense[edit]

That is quite fair. I was under the impression they had previously been secondary sorted by date, but your way does make sense with the rest of the article, and changing the whole article is pointless. It works as is. I will do it that way on there from now on. -Uncleben85 (talk) 06:00, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

Kessel Trade (2016 picks)[edit]

Hey, I noticed you added that the 2nd round pick in the Kessel trade Toronto gave up was conditional. All the articles I've read state it is not conditional, and is simply a reaquiring. I've added it to the second round already, but if it's wrong please remove. Spilia4 (talk) 19:18, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

The league just released the report, all of the picks from Toronto are their own picks. Deadman137 (talk) 19:21, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
