On topic. The Caps didnt sign Semin to trade him. Next?
You may want to check your facts again. I’m not gonna argue who is and will be better, but you should look stuff up before saying it.

But you're right, the Caps have other needs than goaltending. Not that the Habs would do the proposed deal... not at all in fact!

As for Markov, Semin wouldn't be close to land him.
Could you remove your Price biased fan goggles please? Thanks.

If for some reason they were entertaining offers for Semin, they should look at him + something to get a guy like Shea Weber. I don't see moving him for lesser pieces like Hamrlik ever happening.

This can be traced back to either weakness in Defense or Goal, and looking at the player roster, it's no surprise. I know you'll say the Caps don't NEED to work that hard on defense because they score so much...but that logic goes out the window in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Really, looking at it objectively, the Caps would be fighting for a spot in either conference right now if it weren't for the overload of offense they have.

The Bruins can't score, the Sens never have goaltending and the Caps have fantastic offense but no defense. Don't be surprised if what has always been their weak point recently continues to stop them from winning the Stanley Cup. You've got to be proactive when it comes to weak spots, because what works during the regular season doesn't necesairly work for four 7-game playoff series, let alone one. I honestly don't know how much of a chance they have, no matter how good the offense is. On the other hand, I'll be cheering for them over most teams, so hopefully they will break the long-tested mold. They sure are exciting to watch.
They're doing better in the GA department this year, then Pittsburgh did last year. Also, the teams ahead of them don't even come close to having the offensive depth that Washington has.

They have been by far the best team 5on5, especially in the East, which more then makes up for any defensive shortcommings. They score 1.65 for every goal against, the next team (in the east) is Philly & Pittsburgh, and they score 1.08 goals for every goal against. That's a difference of 46 goals over an entire year.

Really now?

Is potential the only thing you have ? No rhyme or reason?
