* guessing mcphee left practice early because the suspension and then lack of suspension had him outraged to the point that he would have shown un mcphee like control and said something akin to punching out the chicago coach. honestly.

* if green is out for most of the season and backstrom doesnt return and the caps dont have a long playoff run, i dont see how mcphee is fired.

* the caps are at the salary cap. if backstrom were placed on ltir, any quality player acquired to replace him would cost real assets. that player would not be as good as backstrom. when backstrom returned that player or a like salaried player would have to go and in that pickle would very likely not return as quality assets. its a losing deal. better off to be patient.

* letting green and semin walk and using the open cap space to replace them is very risky. if the surgery fixes green, he stays. if semin continues another 10 games at his current play level, he will get resigned as well and not at $4m.
