2. We should resign him. Yes, I said it, and I know its only 6 games in. But he and Backstrom would be tremendous for us, in the future. 4 years at 6m a year. Let him actually replace Semin's salary slot long term.

Ovechkin-Riberio-Wolski
Laich-Backstrom-Brouwer
Chimera-Johansson-Ward
Hendricks-Beagle-Crabb
Perrault-Fehr

I like that. But thats just me. If MaJo keeps stinking it up, we have other options. I'd prefer a more shut down C for that 3rd line, but MaJo at least has the wheels to go with Chimera.

Anyway, RESIGN Ribs!
Lets see how the season plays out first my man.

He's good but not $6 mil per good!
