IIRC he usually just tries to crush it at the net. Which is fine by me. I wish our centers would all try a shot in dot at least once a year, especially a guy like Ribs when well on his way to a 1-9 evening.

The myth of Brooks Laich's defensive competence lives on.

Haven't they been covering him already



Or not.

It sure seems like Oates has been letting Ovi cherry pick lately and spoke about him getting breakaways to boot

Ribeiro listed on the main page of NHL.com and 3rd on EJ Radek's top 5 trade list. Video clip too....

Don't know why, but I have a gut feeling about the Ducks.

Ducks, Hawks, Sens (if they're solidly in) could all use the C depth I imagine.

I'd hope that they'd try to get VAN, ANA & CHI to bid against each other. Aside from Perry he's arguably the biggest impact rental potentially available and in the tight Western Conference he could make a real difference. There being no other quality rental centers on the market makes him a pretty nice chip should they sell.

The prospect pools of ANA & CHI are more appealing than VAN's.

I'd pursue Tinner, Gaunce, and McIlrath from those teams.

If we do end up trading with Anaheim I'm sure we could package in some deadweight that Boudreau is a fan of.

I wouldn't mind going after Briere if Philly retains alot of his salary. I think he still has some left in the tank.

When was the last time a team playing as well as the Ducks traded away a star at the deadline just because they thought he might walk? Honestly, I think if Perry turns them down it's probably more likely they double down on winning now and make a move for a guy like Ribeiro.

The Flames simply can't afford to do a full scale rebuild, so Iginla won't be going anywhere unless he asks out.

Clowe is nothing more than an enforcer at this point.

The way things are looking, Ribeiro's gonna be far and away the best forward available at the deadline. I've got to admit I'm kind of excited about the possibility of a huge return for him if he doesn't want to resign here. I think it could be on par with what Kaberle got two years ago.

Been thinking about Briere. Trade Ribeiro for a 1st, maybe a decent prospect that's almost ready. Insert Briere at $6.5 (cap hit) for the next two years, but in reality, he's only getting $5 mil combined in salary the next two seasons. Green for Briere?

Have to wonder if he and Ovy could bury the hatchet.

I'd rather get a winger that shoots the puck when he is wide open in the slot.

Instead we stick a grinder who avoids the slot with Ovechkin and Backstrom. I really just don't see what Hendricks brings to that line that Fehr can't do and already does at a higher ability and goes to the slot instead avoiding it.

It should be Ovechkin back at left wing and the right wing just a re-education project.

Not sure what game you watching but Fehr is no first line winger either. Hendricks is on the line to create space, that is it and if he goes to the slot, where is Ovi shooting from? His spot is the high slot between the circles, if anything you might want someone's @$$ parked in front of the net to clean up the garbage, but then again I don't think that is in our system.

Ovi is playing RW on faceoffs and in the defensive zone, but on offense he is attacking from all lanes. I have seen a lot of successful passes/quality scoring chances on the rush from his line of late, which is a big step forward compared to what our top line was for the last 5 years. Which was of course, let's all sit back and see if Ovi can score.

Its not yet netted significant results but I can see Ovi is getting closer to an offensive breakout which will include his linemates. With Oates the master passer pulling the strings, it all but seems inevitable.

Nice post Randy. Good to hear some hockey talk that isnt panic or hysteria. I think hes been playing better in his new role as well and has been showing flashes of Oates vison of new Ovechkin. I love how hard hes been crashing the net from the right side he hasnt scored much doing it yet but the goals will come. Remember he didnt have a training camp or preseason so hes is pretty much having to learn on the go in important must win games.
Keep on Working on Ovechkins new attack dont worry about the critics and the Milburys and he will be as dangerous as ever. Sometimes the end result (loss) doesnt show the positives in improvement in play.

Trade Ribeiro. He can still sign with the Caps afterwards. UFA means unrestricted.
