As I said in another thread. McPhee will take the biggest risks imaginable on anyone who has ever worn a Caps sweater before.

Everyone else, he's not even gonna ante.

i dont think thats true. i think he values knowing people. thats not limited to those who played for the capitals.

honestly, some of you guys seem so pissed at the team that you might be more happy with a lockout/strike come october than caps hockey.

edit: well, now that we know that leonsis is on the negotiating committee that could be blamed on the capitals as well.

Capitals played 5 man defense during the playoffs.

Can you name a player outside the org he's taken a risk on? Last one was probably Nylander. That one blew up in his face and possibly made him gun shy. Too bad all the Caps gambles that have blown up in his face haven't made him gun shy.

edit: Nylander was an ex cap when we brought him back

Eminger and Jurcina are still UFA... so your theory may be tested again.

Kozlov was signed for $2.5 million. No risk.
Fedorov was acquired for a prospect who would probably never make it. No risk.
Theodore was signed for pretty cheap.
Poti was signed to a good contract -exactly the kind of deal McPhee should make more often. The extension (after he'd been a Cap!) was risky and idiotic given his extensive injury history.
I guess the Zubrus/Linden trade was a pretty big gamble.

Not one of those is as risky as taking a team that's a Cup contender and saying a 19 year old Marcus Johansson will be able to hold down the 2C role. Or signing a guy who has played 81 games in the past two years to a $18 million extension. Or giving Jeff Schultz an NHL contract. Or hiring a coach with zero experience. 4 times in a row.

Risk on Theo? George seemed desperate for a goalie when he didnt want Huet. He took more risk thinking Kolzig could play until age 40 and didn't have a proper in house replacement. He took too long to replace him.

Feds he moved Ruth... yeah I guess that was a big risk move. For him.

Theo was a pretty big risk, especially considering the cap hell he put us in.

But hopefully they can develop a legitimate NHL system that can work around the player's strengths.

Happy to see Oates and Calle coming back. Two of my favorite Caps.

I am sorry most of you are disappointed.

Joel Ward. Hell, two years to Hamrlik as a 35+ player carried some risk. Neither bold as many will want it but...that's just not going to happen.

Great player, and one hell of a commentator. One of the best I've heard. I think he'll make an awesome coach aswell.

I do as well, but it begs the question of when Terry Yake is going to get the call.

I like the hire from overall impression.. but I am a little confused by voices that indicate that Calle Jo is more.. complicated than he appears.

So wait n' see, I guess, and since assistant coaches tend to stay in the shadows, it may be a long time before we get even the remotest of senses of how good he really is behind the bench..

Welcome back, Calle. The real #6.

I figure I watched Calle lug the puck up the ice about 37,450,576 times.

Exactly what I was thinking
He clearly has knowledge about the game but sometimes when talking about individual players he is completely clueless.

Former hockey players that have transitioned into a job behind a microphone often end up saying outrageous things, but I think are often encouraged to do so. Look at the poster child of north american hockey talk. Don Cherry.

Yeah former players may say dumb things at times, but they were hockey players. I also think are not always allowed to say what they really think, so they can come across as dumb talking around that which they cannot say.

We gladly relieve the long suffering Svensks of Calle. You can have Dean "Båll Såck" Evason as a replacement. Skal!

This post makes me think I would like to see Roenick behind the bench.
