Why trade him? He's 33 and going to demand a big UFA extension that the Caps will never agree to and he'll walk for free. Just my prediction.

CHI or ANA make the most sense for Ribeiro should he become a rental. Of course he's quite arguably been their best player so far this season. I don't know the nature of the beef to judge in full but a bit of animosity in the locker room isn't necessarily a bad thing. They'll have a hard time finding a better 2C in the short-term that's for sure.

If not for Ribeiro how many points would Ovechkin have? Blah who cares. They play hockey together - don't care if two egos don't quite mesh off the ice.

Ribs is a good fit in our lineup and has chemistry with Ovi, why not lock him up to a contract extension for 3-5 years. If not for ribs we would have almost no points in the standings. Suggesting to trade him is useless to this team unless you want to become a Columbus. McPhee has to try to make the playoffs every season.

So there is some corroboration of this supposed beef? Would someone please provide a link?

Still has positioning issues. He is close but not fully ready yet.

Can we all at least finally agree that Semin was the glue holding this team together all along?

Luongo Trade

Hi Everyone. I want to apoligize if this has been asked before. To the Capital's fans......What would you be willing to give for Luongo? Or for that matter Schneider? Again, I am sorry if this has already been asked. I rarely come to this site and am not used to working the system.

It's not necessarily Semin. It's the fact that we have 1 true goal scorer on our roster. Ribeiro>Semin, but as we filled the 2C hole we created an arguably even larger hole at 2W.

Coin flip hockey masked all of their hockey IQ and possession-related issues.

Semin was the glue that held this team together? Seriously? Does someone actually believe that?

Ovechkin was the plaster that covered the cracks. Now that he's not firing, it's all coming apart.

Usual suspects still denying the undeniable, I see. I guess a few more games of being bashed in the forehead by reality should do the trick.

If you do not agree with me, you are wrong.

You don't have to be smart to play "stand in front of the crease, let that 7 foot guy take a slapshot fifteen times and hope it doesn't go in" hockey.

Oates' stuff?

Mcphee has been right so far. Brouwer has replaced and improved on Semin with a boost from Ribeiro.

Brouwer's at a 36 goal pace with Ribeiro. Semin's at a 20 goal pace with Staal.

I don't see how anyone can watch this team and say that secondary scoring is a problem. Ribeiro has single handedly fixed that. The problems are top line scoring, defense, goaltending and the pk.

Again, Brouwer has more than twice as many goals and is scoring goals at a quicker pace than Semin has in three years. For pete sake Ward has more goals and as many points as Semin. And yet Semin is the answer to our secondary scoring "problem". Even at $7 million.

Can we staturbate at the fact that Semin is a +11 right now? And then compare all of the plusses on our team together, who are a combined +13...

I'd rather point and laugh at those who think secondary scoring is even close to our biggest problem.

If you want to take stats out of it entirely you can just say that Semin was given the opportunity to lead a second line and failed. Ribeiro has succeeded.

Well, to be honest, I don't even know what can be considered secondary scoring on this ****ing team.

Ovechkin is on the third line still, right? Crabby Beaglin it up? While we dominate a Backstrom and junk first line and Ribs and secondary scoring second line?

"Three Lines That Can Score"? and ****?

Where did I say anything about his contributions to the scoreboard? As helpful as his defensively solid PPG play would have been, his contributions first and foremost would have been to the leadership and overall psychology of the team.

It's no coincidence that Carolina is firing on full cylinders while we're tanking like it's 19(7)(4). I mean, I'm sure it is. There's no way a quiet introverted guy could have that much of an effect on a team's psychology, right? We all know it's the canadian squeaky wheels that drive that boat
