reality check. from all appearances ribeiro is really happy with how his skills fit into washington's lineup. i would guess he signs an extension and stays.

if he refuses that, the caps will trade him at the deadline and get no help of any immediate(for the next season) help. i am not sure how a rookie helps them much next season.

the caps will sell of guys like chimera and hamrlik and poti for nothing of value and save a few dollars.

the caps wont trade off players under contract for coming seasons, though.

I doubt they'd trade him for futures. I'd imagine he'd be used in a re-tooling type deal for a more experienced player.

See Capitals, Washington circa 2009-10.

You go for it when you have the chance, because you never know what's going to happen with your young studs.

b. i think its instructive to consider that most players on the caps roster are not going to be traded. if as you say all the caps top players are overpaid and underperforming, wouldnt the caps best option be to get the most out of those players rather than give them away to get out from under the contracts? are all of ovechkin, backstrom, green, laich and carlson over the hill already? seriously?

so...would mcphee have been a better gm had he sold high? traded ovechkin before the big contract and trading mike green after his norris trophy finalist season?
Yes he should have traded Mike Green. The writing was on the wall for Mike Green. His game fell way off as soon as he was banged up. And I still would not trust him to stay on the ice for a 20+ game playoff run.

I doubt they will be sellers. The Caps are at the bottom of the east but their only 4 points behind Carolina for the lead of the sad sack Southeast Division.

Realignment needs to happen soon and that division needs to get merged with the other teams in the East.

i meant to ask...where did the information about mcphee and these one on one meetings come from? and what veterans were told they were going to sit in favor of young players?

the caps dont have any young players that are not playing that need to play. poti and hamrlik might sit so that kundratek can play but they have been anyway.

who else?

I agree. You can't count on future success. With the fantastic start to the season that the Hawks have had - they should go all-in as much as reasonable. Sometimes the best use of prospects and draft picks are trade chips. A short term "sure thing" player is more valuable for the Hawks than prospects and picks based on the circumstances of this season.

I wouldn't advocate getting a player that would put the Hawks into cap-hell going into 2013/14 - but picking up a rental without hurting the current roster should be done.

Ribiero is being discussed in this thread, but I'd rather get either Filpulla from Detroit or Weiss from Florida, both UFAs, before Ribiero because they are both better defensively and on faceoffs than Ribiero. But I'd take any of them if the deal were right. All three would be a better center for Sharp and Kane than Bolland is, and would allow Bolland to go back to his very effective role of 3LC and also move Shaw out of 3LC to a wing where he is better suited for.
