That isn't just a big risk it is a HUGE one with honestly very little chance of success and I love the guy. That would just be rolling the dice with the odds completely against them and stakes that they really can't afford to play with IMO...
That's a valid point. And I could easily see him missing a good portion of next season as well. But His breakout passes, shootout prowess, and poise on the point are too alluring. He also brings maturity to a very young defense and could be a great influence.
So personally, I think he's worth the risk entirely. However, that's under the assumption he signs for reasonable salary/term.
Little to no chance the Capitals can make room for him. We can all dream, I suppose.
