After the 10am decision, will tell alot if Philly and Pittsburg will get a whole lot better in FA. Caps add addition or two, but at low value.

I think AK and Allen will be 2 good low cost pieces.

Of course, if Parise wants to come here, I think that's good

Parise will decide by then whether he will become an UFA.

Any chance or point of looking at Mueller or Latendresse and giving either of them a low budget 1 year deal to see whether they get fit again.

Let's get Huselius and pencil in Tom Poti as Green's partner while we're at it.

I definitely would, as a 3rd liner... More interest in Mueller...

ovi-backstrom-grit
grit-ribs-skill

on the roster, i can see the grit roles being filled, but i dont see skill to flank ribeiro on the 2nd line. and no, just in case anyones drinking early, mojo is NOT that player. he'd just drag ribs down.

imo whitney's the perfect choice. he gets a chance at a cup, can play with a skillful playmaking centerman, a potentially loaded PP - and from the caps end he wont cost 8m or 5+ year term. 2 years until kuz and forsberg are blazing down the verizon wings.

There is alway a chance. GMGM is a bargin basement shopper and with Mueller's previous injuries and so-so career, he could be one we look at.

Only problem is Whitney is a very similar player to Ribeiro... Both playmakers... I would definitely not be against it, but I think we need more of a sniper...

I want 2 of Parenteau/Whitney/Jagr/AK/Mueller/Samuelsson...

Id take a stab at Mueller. WE could always use another shootout specialist.

Already have Hendricks and Ribeiro. How many shootout specialists do we need?

Many #NHL teams will present Parise including #Sens. Many will disappear quickly when they find out a 12M sign' bonus is needed on the spot

Kiss the Parise pipe dream goodbye. GMGM will never meet his demands from what I just heard he wants on twitter. 12M signing bonus today and 12M next July first too. Good luck!

The only "top" free agent I really hope we go after is Garrison. Once Hamrlik's gone, the Caps will have a serious hole on the left side in their top 4, with no one in the system who looks like a good fit (and a 38 year old Hamrlik is barely a top 4 defenseman at this point anyway). Ideally that would let us dump Schultz too, but that might be a bridge too far with GMGM. As far as forwards go, I don't think there's anyone worth investing heavily in when Kuznetsov, Forsberg, Galiev, and Wilson should all be NHL ready within two to three years. I'd take a flier on Mueller as a low risk, high reward move. As for a bottom 6 winger, I like Taylor Pyatt's size and defensive play, and he'd probably come cheap too. So here's my roster:

Garrison gets 5 years, 23.75M
Mueller gets 2 years, 4M
Pyatt gets 2 years, 3M

Marcus Johansson ($0.900m) / Nicklas Backstrom ($6.700m) / Alex Ovechkin ($9.538m)
Peter Mueller ($2.000m) / Mike Ribeiro ($5.000m) / Troy Brouwer ($2.350m)
Jason Chimera ($1.750m) / Brooks Laich ($4.500m) / Taylor Pyatt ($1.500m)
Matt Hendricks ($0.825m) / Jay Beagle ($0.825m) / Joel Ward ($3.000m)
Mathieu Perreault ($0.825m) /

Karl Alzner ($1.285m) / John Carlson ($2.000m)
Jason Garrison ($4.750m) / Mike Green ($5.000m)
Roman Hamrlik ($3.500m) / Dmitry Orlov ($0.900m)
Jeff Schultz ($2.750m) / John Erskine ($1.500m)

Braden Holtby ($0.638m)
Michal Neuvirth ($1.150m)

CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $6,780,428

Woo, then Garrison can regress to his career norms and Mueller will struggle with concussion issues, leaving us with Chimera in our top six and another overpaid mediocre LD!

No, better yet, we are letting go a #1W who played in a #2W. I understand both sides of the argument on Semin staying or going, but this is critical we replace the goal scoring.

Parise will test the market. No surprise there.

How many signings for the big club are people thinking? Two? Three? One? Seems a consensus that the Caps need a top 6 winger - what else?
