If the Caps sign Ribeiro would they take Shattenkirk + Tarasenko for Backstrom? Doesn't Kuznetsov arrive after the Olympics in the middle of this coming season?

Personally, I think the Blues should target Statsny.

I'd rather not do that and risk having another Doug Weight.

I think Statsny is the guy we can actually obtain also. Him and Bowemeester both have large contracts that will most likely come down after next year so they should be affordable.

Right? I mean, he could actually be available.

I'm not doing that. We need young scorers on ELCs.

No. It doesn't address any of the Capitals' needs and sets them back in an area they've struggled to address for years (scoring center depth). The Caps are loaded with wingers and right-handed defensemen (especially of the puck moving variety).

Pushing John Carlson down to the third pairing and getting Kuznetsov's buddy is not worth losing Nicklas Backstrom. And honestly, Shattenkirk isn't even a lock to push Carlson to the third pairing.

And Kuznetsov has primarily played wing in the KHL.
