That's a lot of dough.
That is the only reason that the Capitals could even concieve of moving one of the top 3 players in the world over the last few years.

Thing is, I don't see him being moved, period. He will be back to his regular form soon enough. Another new coach, another new system, the only other winger capable of taking the defense's interest away from him is no longer with the team...what's everyone expecting?

Anyway, for the fun of it, both Sedins+1st for Ovi+Johansson.

Kesler+Edler+1st for Ovi+Green.

Jensen+Gaunce+2013 1st+2015 1st+Corrado+Schneider/Lu+Booth for Ovechkin+roster dumps (logisitics dictate one contract out vs. five in would mean other moving parts...not nessicarily of any value).

None will happen, but in two proposals, I offer all four of our "untouchables", and he other I strip mine our youth (our best prospect at every position, a new starter and a (dumbed down) replacement for the roster.

GMGM nor GMMG would do this, but it's fun to pretend.

I'm calling back to the Bure days
