My out of left field wild guesses:

Caps get Tim Connelly (sp?) for Brooks Laich.

Caps get Nashville #1 for Wideman.

Hamr-time to Dallas for a #2 and #5.

Schultz and Vokoun to FLA for a #1. Vokoun is pissed and won't give Schultz a ride to the airport.

I just think there isn't enough time to pull off these moves in such little time.

And then they run up a white flag outside Kettler?

I just dont see GMGM LTIR'ing Backs even if they know he wont be playing until the playoffs or the season. That means you have to move Knubs, Schultz and Hamrlik. Then this so called 2C move. SO basically you have to make at LEAST two trades most likely three before making the one to improve the team. 4 trades tomorrow? So not going to happen.

It's so going to someone like Brad Boyes. A rental, yeah, but what a deal!

* hotstove mentioned toronto might be looking for a goaltender. they didnt know who they might be interested in but knew they would not be interested in vokoun.

* contending teams like the flyers dont trde their pending ufa's at the deadline. they trade for more of them. if they are so unhappy with them as to want them gone, ala hamrlik, why would the caps want them?

Wait. Former 40 goal scorer Brad Boyes????

If we can acquire him and a time machine we'll be unstoppable.

You forgot to mention that Detroit has lost at home this season, so that's a possible win as well. Hell, we should run the table.

Yeah I don't see this team making the playoffs personally but I also don't see McPhee throwing in the towel.

What teams *always* make TDL deals?

Philly, Det (already made one), Team Burke, Chi?, Bos, SJ? Rags with a deal late in the day?

You know who the likely deal-makers are. It ain't McPhee and the Caps. But it's fun to play.

the flyers are 5-6-1 in february. they are in 5th place in the east and 1 pt from 7th place. bruins are 5-7-1 in february. two of the wins are shootout wins. neither of these teams have been juggernauts of late. the islanders are the islanders after the trade deadline and the leafs...well, you saw the leafs last night.

now which of these teams reminds you of detroit at the joe again?

Really? You're gonna make me look this crap up?

2011 - Arnott, Wideman
2010 - Walker, Belanger, Jurcina, Corvo
2009 - Handcuffed by Nylander
2008 - Huet, Fedorov, Cooke

McPhee is an active player at the trade deadline. He sucks at almost every other aspect of his job. Let him have this one.

Thank you for posting this.

McPhee has done something every year he had cap space. The idea that he will do nothing because he always does nothing isn't just wrong; it's patently ridiculous.

Compared to the Caps, who are also 5-7-1 in February, both of them.

NJ? Sorta.

Philly? Fragile goalies.

Carolina? Smash them out of anger.

TB? Fragile goalies.

Boston? Really? Anyone afraid of them? They've been pretty bad lately.

I think the Caps go 5-0-0 during that home stand. The confidence is there.

I just dont get the idea of trading 90 for anything short of being part of a really big trade bringing in an established skilled player that fits a need.....who is not a rental

He is going to be a player. I agree he looks better on wing currently....but he has legit top 6 potential

Im not surprised people are ready to move him or dont see this upside.....several people were looking at a 50 point season for him....I figured that was a bit optimistic. Now that it looks like he wont hit that....well, he inst the answer and I guess never will.

He is better this season than last.....That, IMO, is sure to continue
