Capitals firesale
 
Not very likely, GMGM will probably keep everybody except maybe the coach. He will give a raise to Erskine and Schultz just because they tried. He will probably get rid of Erat, to get a 3rd round pick from Detroit or something.

However, let's assume everybody is on the trade block now.

Ovechkin, Green, Backstrom, Carlson, Alzner, Laich...

Let the bidding begin.

Personally, If only one was to leave, I would trade Backstrom, and if Spezza is available and healthy, he would be the one I would want to get.

Backstrom lacks the scoring touch, but is a better playmaker than Spezza imo.

Thoughts?

Mmmmyeah I'm going to get a lot of crap for proposing this but Backstrom for Koivu + Clutterbuck?

denniscasa 05-14-2013 06:37 AM

Something around carlson and big bufflien?

IceBjoern 05-14-2013 06:42 AM

Caps need size on the back end, and speed.. I'd rather Green leaves before Carlson.

Needs a piece of youth added, but I'd consider it from the Caps, despite Backstrom being my favorite player in the league. The Caps need a massive shakeup, and Ovi unfortunately won't be the one to go. Koivu shifts the focus from offense to defense, despite the fact that he's good offensively and Backstrom's good defensively. Clutterbuck brings definite value on the wings.

Plus, two Nicklas Backstrom's on the same team? :yo:

Wow, 3rd rounder for Erat? Guess that trade looks really bad now.

tmack224 05-14-2013 07:00 AM

Ovechkin for Vanek, Myers, and the 16th pick.

Caps need better two-way forwards and more solid D. Those guys don't help that unfortunately.

I want Backström but you need to tell me about your team's needs!?

octopi 05-14-2013 07:05 AM

Ovechkin, Backstrom and Green are going nowhere at this point.Unless of course they force a trade.

Everyone else, there's a chance.

also, let's hope he trades for some decent ice.No?:cry:

Next season Kuznetsov will come and Laich will be back and Wilson will play whole season. Thats three quality pieces.

I would use Neuvirth, Orlov, Johansson, Erat, Chimera as tradebaits. Get rid off Erskine and Schultz.

Ovie-Kuznetsov-Laich
?-Bäckstrom-Brouwer
Fehr-Perreault-Wilson
Ward-Beagle-Hendricks

Alzner-Green
?-Carlson
Oleksy-Hillen

Holtby,
veteran backup

Bolded #1: Oates stays, zero doubt about it.
Bolded #2: Erskine already got a slight raise.
Bolded #3: Schultz is bought out, book it. We've had 3M of cap hit in the press box for two years now.
Bolded #4: No he won't, he made it pretty clear Marty is part of our short-term core.
Bolded #5: ...let's not. Please. It's not realistic.
Bolded #6: Spezza is older and more expensive.

First person to go should be McPhee...

Petro Points 05-14-2013 09:20 AM

Horcoff + Yakupov

FOR

:dunno:

IPreferPi 05-14-2013 09:24 AM

Klesla for Johansson?

stokes84 05-14-2013 09:37 AM

This falls on deaf ears. Leonsis doesn't care about accountability.

stokes84 05-14-2013 09:55 AM

Tyler Myers + 16 for Backstrom

Well, considering this poster also proposed Caps to fire Oates and extend Schultz...

AfroThunder396 05-14-2013 09:58 AM

Troy Brouwer for Mark Fayne

Kresnik 05-14-2013 09:59 AM

Let's just trade everybody for Lundqvist.

Cogburn 05-14-2013 10:11 AM

Two of Kesler, Edler or Schneider, our first and any prospect not named Jensen for Ovechkin.

Even in a total rebuild, he's staying put, face hockey in the capital and that, but for sheer value?

The only piece of interest is Edler. This trade doesn't make us better.
