Is this trade deadline day humor; why would you use wiki on deadline day as confirmation of anything?

HHAHA TSN just said Mcphees done all he can do perfectly to make a great team


Also theres no way we could spend Semins 6.7 million any better guys


Also these guys are morons just said acquiring the Kost brothers riskier than acquiring Richards, Carter. Sorry not sure how I understand how two UFA's at the the end of the year is riskier than two idiots for ten years who have been blackballed from a franchise

but only time will tell that story
Totally agree.

Also another observation...as much as I wanted Flash gone it did seem we were definitely not the same team when he left. Something happened along the lines of the Bulis/Zednik trade in my book. Something dysfunctional in the locker room.

As weird as it sounds I think something similar will happen if they lose Semin. make no mistake, he is the reason we are even in playoff contention since Backstrom went down.

FWIW Tomas Vokoun just had a quick conversation with Jim Johnson and then headed off the ice. Everyone else still out there. #caps

Kostisyn to Preds for 2013 2nd and 5th. Apparently, the price for disgruntled, underperforming wingers with flashes of skill is not very high.

I am attempting to embrace the modern media! I follow bob thanks for that twitter name though. But I have regularly heard that Wiki is very quick to update so I gave it a try. Someone hacked it and made me look foolish. But Wiki had him in Nashville before the TSN and NHL trade tracker did.

Vokoun has been bad for like the last week... Doesn't mean he should be traded.

It's not so much that someone hacked, it's just... that's how wiki works. Anyone can put anything up, and it's a numbers game that keeps it honest (for most articles, if they're unprotected or whatever).

You mean the same guy who has just as many even strength goals and just one less even strength point as Alex Freakin' Ovechkin...? Chimera rules...

Oh and Semin has more even strength goals and points than Ovechkin also...

and I agree that goalies (and all players) want more ice time/starts. Sure....easier to get into a groove and find your game. Problem is...it doesnt work that way. If youre Holtby you cant say "sorry im not very good in the AHL this season...but if you give me 25 NHL starts I'm sure I'll play better". Same with Nuevirth...."I know I havent stopped the puck consistantly but if you play me 50+ games I promise I'll do better"
Part of my grumpiness was wanting to see Holtby this year.

And look at that, JJ whispers in Tivo's ear and off the ice he goes.

wiki had it because someone heard a media guy on one of the trade shows or on twitter report it and edited wiki

The modern media outlets are fast, I am trying to embrace them because its the voice of the masses. I can certainly keep what I find to myself until days end.

Just like some dudes twitters or here, anyone can post anything. To Wiki's credit, they supposedly do review all changes and indeed had the correct NASH destination up before the hockey sites did.

to be clear...I havent and I am not saying they shouldnt/wont move Vokoun. Im just saying blaming a full season of rather poor play from the young G's on signing Vokoun this summer isnt something I buy

It literally tells us nothing at this point. He can come off tomorrow, this just gives them the option to make moves today without shuffling stuff around first.

If we come out tomorrow with less than $6.7 mil in cap space then you can say ugh, because he'll be out until the regular season ends. But for now we know nothing.

Only if they don't have the cap space to take him off. If they have the cap space (don't use any today, or do cap-for-cap by getting rid of Hamrlik or Knuble or whatever) they can take him off tomorrow because he's been out long enough and it's retroactive.

Yes he can, as long as the Caps don't fill that 6.7 million
