b. i think its instructive to consider that most players on the caps roster are not going to be traded. if as you say all the caps top players are overpaid and underperforming, wouldnt the caps best option be to get the most out of those players rather than give them away to get out from under the contracts? are all of ovechkin, backstrom, green, laich and carlson over the hill already? seriously?

so...would mcphee have been a better gm had he sold high? traded ovechkin before the big contract and trading mike green after his norris trophy finalist season?
Yes he should have traded Mike Green. The writing was on the wall for Mike Green. His game fell way off as soon as he was banged up. And I still would not trust him to stay on the ice for a 20+ game playoff run.
