Leafs talking to caps E4

khennig16* 01-07-2012 02:28 PM

so hes only a little bit sure that George Mcphee and Brian Burke talk?

Paralyzer008 01-07-2012 02:29 PM

I could see the Leafs talking to the Caps about Semin, although I cannot personally see Burke wanting Semin's baggage.

I agree. I don't see lots of truculence in semin.

Kamal007 01-07-2012 02:33 PM

Are the caps looking for a defenseman? We currently have an abundance. Or possibly a bottom 6 forward?

getyourselfsomerest 01-07-2012 02:34 PM

Brooks Laich please

edit: Never mind, just looked at his contract. long term. 4.5 per. NTC. No thanks.

I can't see this at all

Leafs and Caps, not a good match.

Bernier the Boats 01-07-2012 02:39 PM

If its a Semin deal you can bet Nonis or Dudley will be pulling that one off

We have an abundance of both.

LeafsYoungGuns 01-07-2012 02:49 PM

Backstrom or Carlson is who I think we would try for. Pretty sure we wouldn't get either though.

Eakins or Johansson would be cool though too.

There is nobody on your team that i would want for any of those 4.

Elbowpad 01-07-2012 02:51 PM

Brouwer.

Some extra size up front which is what Burke said he wanted.

Griffski 01-07-2012 02:52 PM

You'd think Eklund would at least "e4" realistic trade partners haha.

I guess that is why it is not up to you.

I'm sure the 3rd leading scorer in the league wouldn't help Washington, at all. You can't have him, but this is just a dumb argument.

Neuvirth a possibility.

Burke has stated recently he's not looking to acquire a goalie.

DougGilmour93 01-07-2012 02:57 PM

It's definetly not Semin.

Kyle Doobas* 01-07-2012 03:01 PM

Why is it that every time any trade rumour surfaces, everyone always has to assume it's going to be some kind of blockbuster involving several of each team's core pieces? :laugh:

Leafs and Caps in talks? MUST BE SEMIN + CARLSON!!!1

Anyway, aren't both teams relatively close to the cap ceiling? The Leafs definitely need to shed some salary, especially with guys like Armstrong/Lombardi making 3M or more a year playing in the bottom six.... but I don't see why the Caps would be willing to take on - or even capable of taking on - a contract like that right now. Probably just Eklund blowing hot air as usual.

KuliTank7 01-07-2012 03:01 PM

Nothing is going to happen E5

Kessel for Eakins is my proposal.

No? You wouldn't do that? No wonder Washington has had so much success in the playoffs lately.....

We took Backstrom over Kessel in the draft and it has worked out great for us.
We don't need another sniper.
