If this is any indication of what the market is truely for D, the Caps should be talking to Green about a longterm deal right now. If they do it now vs. waiting for healthy Mike Green to show up and look great offensively again next year under Oates, they might save some money.

This team is in critical flux right now. We could be one year away from Green, Semin, and Ribeiro walking for nothing. Kuznetzov no where in sight and the cupboards barely restocked with some prospects that might take a few years to make a difference in the NHL.

We have Ovy, Backstrom, Carlson, Alzner, Laich, Orlov, Ward and Mojo locked up for the forseeable future. Beyond that, we could be looking at a totally rebuilt team. I don't have to warm and fuzzies, but it's still only July. I just pray McPhee does his job and pulls off a solid trade.
