Ovechkin to Buffalo

Just curious what Washington fans would want from Buffalo?
Perhaps a shake up between rosters not even necessarily including Ovy would help both teams get going.

Everyone in Buffalo is calling for Lindy's head, a big shake up, Pegula will spend the money and Washington needs a kick in the ass too. I don't think this would ever happen, ever. But it's interesting.

Literally have no interest for OVI at the cost it would take.

If Washington throws in a first, TPegs will take that dead weight salary off their hands.

Foligno, Sekera, Girgensons & 1st, and that kick-starts a Washington semi-rebuild.

Flies in the face of everything Buffalo is trying to accomplish. Terrible for Buffalo.

Not to mention the cap hell.

I'd think any deal around Ovechkin would have to include Vanek--high paid top line snipers. Then just season to taste. But then...I'm not sure Buffalo would want to move Vanek the way that line is playing...

I agree about Vanek; and Vanek is a bonafide producer, a name, a left wing, salary so he negates the plus of Miller and probably Myers.

Ovie is definetly one of the "faces" of the NHL, a true elite "talent," the name non-hockey fans associate with the league. He might not be producing at the level he once was but he'd be the typical guy who's head has to be on totally straight to be that elite talent.....

which brings me to.....

"He ain't going anywhere!"

Lindy Ruff.

There are many of us Sabre fans that think Vanek could've been a more bonafide star in this league under a different coach, he doesn't...wait, not this year, he's getting the mintues but in years past, Lindy doesn't play Vanek in Total Ice Time where other stars are. Lindy also has a stereotype that he doesn't like Russians, probably mainly because of how utterly lazy Afinagnov was at times. Ovie would not be a good fit in Buffalo, and please correct me if you think I'm wrong but Ovie doesn't scream"defensive-first" mentality.

I can't see him being a Buffalo target.

Don't want him.........keep him in Washington

Quite honestly.............Caps should buy him out after the season

Addition by subtraction

Ovie's gonna turn it around, and if Washington's open to moving him, I think we'd be foolish not to oblige. Girgensons, Stafford & a 1st. Goodbye secondary scoring issues.

Call me crazy, but I think Ovie on a line with Griggy and Armia sounds scary good (yes, went there).

If by some chance Caps (and Ovie) agreed to a deal to Buffalo............Leino is part of any deal. Dump his cap number and let Caps buy him out

1. Cap hell for Buffalo.
2. Nope, not interested.

People think Vanek's contract is bad? Ovechkin's is far worse if he keeps going the direction he has been for the past 2-3 years. And Green doesn't bring what our defense needs: someone who can actually play defense.

Caps can take 20-30% of the salary away from Ovi. They have done so before with Jags.

Don't give them Vanek. That would be stupid.
