Washington as sellers?
 
George McPhee met one on one with several players today before the Caps practice. It's been speculated that he was telling the key players that the Caps will use the rest of the season to evaluate the younger players in the organization and therefore, that they will be sellers at the deadline.

Which players could be dealt? Probably Hamrlik, Poti, maybe Ribeiro. Who else?

What draft picks or young players could the Caps get for that?

Man if Ribeiro is available... I hope the Hawks take a SERIOUS look! I'd offer quite a bit for him

I'd be interested in Ribeiro for the Sens at the right price. He's a stupendous, dazzling player.

It would infuriate me to see Ribeiro go. He's been the best player on the Caps this season and solves a lot of issues with our "secondary" scoring. If he goes a lot of PP/ES offense goes with him. Personally, I'd like to see him reupped for 3-4 years.

A lot of teams would be interested him is the only thing I don't know if you could get him for the right price.

Washington need to change there core player that it ... They will never win a cup with ovi as a captain !! That I promise

Ovi is good and fantastic player but he's not a good leader ! It sad to say cause I loved ovi and I still du but he's not in Crosby league no more sadly !!

birddog* 02-22-2013 08:55 PM

Probably not but I wonder if Washington will try to sign Semin this summer...

Locker room cancer. Do not want.

AfroThunder396 02-22-2013 09:03 PM

Kovy and Ribiero on the same line makes my mouth water.

I doubt NJ gives up premium assets this deadline, though.

Curtinho 02-22-2013 09:06 PM

What would Washington (within reason, or realistically) want for Mike Green?

Freudian 02-22-2013 09:07 PM

They're already out of the playoffs, so they might as well bottom out and see what their kids can do.

HappyGilmourr 02-22-2013 09:09 PM

I would consider Kessel for Backstrom... but honestly Kessel is playing great and Backstrom doesn't seem like that 100 point guy anymore.

Kessals not a 100 point guy either. Backstrom > Kessal

King'sPawn 02-22-2013 09:11 PM

What's the asking price for Hamrlik?

McOilbleeder 02-22-2013 09:12 PM

Could Brouwer be available? If so, what would it cost the Oilers to get him?

Probably a mid round pick.

Seriously doubt it. He's one of the few guys exceeding expectations this season, and has a contract where the price and term are right.

I'm aware but at this point in time Kessel > Backstrom. I wouldn't do it from a Washington perspective Backstrom (when on his game) is a top 10 centre in the NHL. Problem is he's just not producing like he was a couple of seasons ago.

If I'm Washington, he's the last guy I trade. It's just so tough to find #1 centres.

Eternal Sunshine 02-22-2013 09:14 PM

Yes, Washington should act as sellers and sell off some vets. Yes, for picks and prospects.

Zetterberg4Captain 02-22-2013 09:37 PM

if washington wants to in they need to change the culture a bit

the best way to do that with the least negative effect while getting the most return is Mike Green

Chimera to Buffalo for ???

SherVaughn30 02-22-2013 10:50 PM

Actually, no NHL GM should call him so it improves the chances of firing McCockroach! Please, no deals with the Caps.

I would agree with this.

AslanRH 02-22-2013 11:05 PM

If Ribiero gets traded, does that open the door for a possible move for O'Reilly? I know it was discussed amongst both sides before in a trade proposal, but he would be good fit behind Backstrom.
