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!
Agree with all of this except for that first line. I can't think of a worse defensive line that could be put together with the current personnel.
