Who wants a conditional pick or future considerations? Caps need goalie depth
 
This thread is NOT about finding the caps a new starting goaltender or trading away Varlamov, Neuvirth, or Holtby.

With Holtby and Sabourin both injured for a significant period of time in Hershey, and with Varly supposedly injuring himself during the morning skate yesterday, the Caps had to sign Todd Ford and use him as a back-up in Long Island last night. Depending on the severity of Varly's injury (and even if its not significant), the Caps goaltending depth is obliterated right now and I have to think they're going to want a goaltender (preferably waiver exempt and on a 2-way contract, but that's probably pushing it) to bump Ford down the depth chart and possibly start for Hershey during their playoff run. This obviously could have much more impact on the AHL than it does the NHL, so that's only going to complicate the deal.

So, does your team have anyone available?

You can have JDD or Gerber for a pick!

Bobby Blowhard 02-27-2011 12:33 PM

glass man is on waivers.

Take Poo-daj

Bubba88 02-27-2011 12:38 PM

just look at the waiver list...

Vinner 02-27-2011 12:54 PM

Wow, I'm sure that line would peak alot of interest from GM's.

MXD 02-27-2011 01:01 PM

Wow...
Look at the waiver wire.

Or call TB, offering them a conditionnal swap of 7th rounder for Mike Smith or something like that.

mstad101 02-27-2011 01:26 PM

Mike Smith Curtis McBackup and another goalie were just on waivers. Why didn't you guys just claim one for free?
Seems kinda stupid to have 3 injured goalies and than see 3 free pickups on waivers the same day n miss your chance at a claim.

Leclaire!

Conklin is on waivers - he's a descent vet back-up

Swing and a miss for all of you. Think about the problem the Caps would have if they claim a guy of waivers that they want to split time between the NHL and AHL depending on injury status. While some may pass through, others wouldn't (especially not on re-entry). McBackup, for example, obviously has some value to Tampa since they traded for him, and they'd just grab him back when the Caps waived him to put him in Hershey when Varly gets better. And Conklin, while he might survive regular waivers, is almost guaranteed to not survive re-entry if the Caps needed him in Washington later in the season.

So unless you're proposing the Caps carry three goaltenders, waivers makes no sense. Especially Conklin in that case.

I don't think it's a swing and a miss...maybe a foul-tip, but not a miss all together. Considering that these players are on waivers, there obviously isn't a ton of value/interest...so you claim one, say, Conklin...two scenarios:

A) You carry him (yes 3 goalies), because you guys aren't right on the cap and there's no roster limits after the trade deadline (because of limited amounts of call-ups) you'd be fine...

B) If you really want to, just waive him and send him down. It's the Blues, they won't claim him back because they don't want the salary back without getting any playoff revenue. No playoff teams would grab him because he wouldn't be eligible for the postseason anyway (have to be property of a team by the deadline).

And McElhinney doesn't have value...just because he was traded for - it was a salary dump with a warm body coming back...the warm body was waived almost immediately after.

So if you need a goalie as an insurance policy, just snag one at noon tomorrow...

thestonedkoala 02-27-2011 06:59 PM
