[WSH/DAL] Ribeiro for Eakin+2nd
 
@kcarrera: #Caps announce they've traded Cody Eakin and 2nd rounder (no. 54 overall) to Dallas for center Mike Ribeiro.

Es he ayhshbskvnsbsbbdjdgus

YES YE YES !!!

WetHog 06-22-2012 06:28 PM

Hey I have even heard of this guy, that would mean this is a big deal, right? 2C?

Dr John Carlson 06-22-2012 06:29 PM

Like it.

IkeaMonkey* 06-22-2012 06:29 PM

OH MY ****.


GMGM wins my faith back a little bit.

sunnydaycrash 06-22-2012 06:30 PM

Not bad....not a bad trade at all

Semin 06-22-2012 06:30 PM

I like. Still want to draft a big center though.


don't mind giving up Eakin as well. He will be a nice player but I don't see Eakin being a 60 point player, which Riberio is.

EHCler 06-22-2012 06:31 PM

good trade keep the first rounders now Eakin nice player, but he can be replaced.

Carlzner 06-22-2012 06:31 PM

Love it.

CrashTheNet9 06-22-2012 06:31 PM

Decent GMGM magic.

Bure 06-22-2012 06:32 PM

My thoughts exactly. Was listening to the NHL Draft radio and literally screamed, when heard the news.

Modo 06-22-2012 06:33 PM

Steal for you guys.

Congrats.

Ugh.

Semin 06-22-2012 06:34 PM

Amazed we didn't give up one of our first rounders. That alone is a steal in itself.

amjay13 06-22-2012 06:34 PM

excellent deal for the caps, well done gmgm

Langway 06-22-2012 06:34 PM

Now they need a winger or two for him to play with. Not that I'm overly for it but this is the sort of player that Semin would have fun being on the same line as.

caps4cup 06-22-2012 06:36 PM

Called it. Called it. Called it. Called it!!!!!!!!!!!

True but don't you think that Ribero comes in as a semin replacement? either pay semin his 6.7 or Riberos 5.5? Or is it more?

WetHog 06-22-2012 06:37 PM

Read on the main board that Ribeiro has 1 year left at 5 mil. Does GMGM sign him to a extension, or see how he works out with team first? I hope an extension is not in the near future. From what I know of Ribeiro it seems like waiting on an extension is the best thing.

They need another top-6 winger if Semin walks. Doesn't have to be as expensive as Semin but having all-3 of Brouwer, Laich, and MoJo in the top-6 would leave them basically where they were last season and that's not good enough.

It's feasible next year, although planning overall is a crapshoot given the CBA expiring.

@Real_ESPNLeBrun: Caps had briefly talked to Stars about Ribeiro before February trade deadline. Talks heated up last 2 days.

I guess the draft broadcast is not live. Bettman just announced the NY trade, and I read about that a while ago. Will be interested to hear commentary on the Caps trade once the draft coverage catches up. :laugh:

edamer 06-22-2012 06:40 PM

unbelievable! gmgm does it again. probably the best 2C available for that price tag. hoping this is just the start of an amazing silly season :)

It's live (well, delay is like a minute or less based on twitter), he just waited to announce the trade until the Isles were up.
