I loved seeing Semin do so well and be so happy and play so well with Ovie and Datsyuk. With that said, it worries me because I've haven't seen him like that in a Caps game. And darn it, I want him to stay with the Caps.
All we need to do is trade for Datsyuk....problems solved.
George McPhee....The Teflon GM. 15 years of failure and counting....
6 - Number of playoff series the Capitals have won since George McPhee took over as General Manager in 1997 (which makes him the third-longest-tenured GM in the League), three of which came in McPhee's first season on the job.
If we sign Suter we might get to a point where we can play solid defense without being a defensive first hive mind simply because the personnel is so good. Like Philly in 2010, when they had an all offense system yet Pronger-Carle and Coburn-Timonen were completely dialed in. Then Ovechkin could still do whatever he wants to without compromising the rest of the line.
