I'd rather pay Parise big money and hope he maintains his production than pay Semin big money and hope he doubles his production.

First 2 minutes:

1st period 7-2
2nd period 7-7
3rd period 9-6

Last 2 minutes:

1st period 3-14 (this is really the low point)
2nd period 7-7
3rd period 6-9 (12-17 if you wanna add ENGs)

From 12 goals in the last 2 minutes of 3rd period Chimera scores exactly one third - 4 goals.

That's it.
Freaking awesome.

Knew that 2nd period was horrid.... But wow. -16

Early/late goals: 39-45 (ex EN)

So... Crappy as expected. With late goals the killer.

I am glad everyone got a kick out of my morning rant.

For the record I like Semin. He helped me through the dark years, watching him beat 3 4 sometimes 5 guys to score his insane goals. He almost epitomizes individual play since no one can ever hang with him, and he never gets a top flight center. But we don't even see that me game anymore. And he just doesn't fit on our perennial lame duck 2nd line.

Maybe SOB should get one last shot.

The only logic I can get out of semin's toi is dale limited him because he's on Mp's line. An mp needs his toi managed.... And dale's too much of a dumb ass as not to double shift him with SOB line here and there.

How long did it take him to double shift ovi on 4th? Like 30+ games

Parise might listen to $6.7-$7.5 for ten years.

Did you know that Ovechkin is scoring at a 48 goal pace over the past 41 games (half season)?

Guess who is scoring at a 20 goal pace over his last 41 games.

Something that's annoyed me is that recently Semin's habit of holding the puck too long as he comes up the boards from the offensive corner has resurfaced. He won't put the puck back into the cycle, instead carrying up the boards until he finally gets double-teamed by the winger covering the point, at which point he tries to dump back down the boards. Problem is there are now two defenders on the boards and one of them gets it every time. Or he gets stripped by the double-team. Best case is the puck just gets knocked away to center and the weak side defenseman is able to retrieve it.

7.5 for ten years would probably be pretty close. I'd almost try to go a little higher and take a year off. The Caps not going down for a while, Quebecs coming soon and will make it even higher

I'd double the amount and offer it to both of them.

Committing $16-17mil to two wingers isn't wise.

Who cares spending 6 or 7 million on Semin for the sake of just spending money isn't worth it

I'd lock in a deal for a dozen Beagles, some Schultz like d-men, one Wideman and a solid goaltender and put the rest of the dough in a bank.

Beagle - Beagle - Beagle
Beagle - Beagle - Beagle
Beagle - Beagle - Beagle
Beagle - Beagle - Beagle

Schultz - Wideman
Schultz - Schultz
Schultz - Carlson

Erskine

Solid Goaltender / Backup Goaltender

It's for the sake of the ability to dress a forward lineup that can at least be passed off as NHL-quality.

I like Semin a lot, but I'm fine with him leaving. His production in the last two years frustrates me. But you can't let him go without replacing him. 2 Joel Wards or 1.5 Brooks Laichs absolutely do not add up to one Semin, regardless of his diminished production. There has to be a plan to replace him. I'd rather replace him with a great 1bC who can be the primary player on the second line, but Parise would be acceptable. Getting that center is much easier said that done. If Semin's gone without a replacement, this team's offense is going to be absolutely gruesome.

This actually looks like a plan I can get behind, but some of those choices on defense are a little sketchy. I know there's a salary cap, but have you considered signing Dennis Wideman to play 1LD and 2RD? He usually plays on the right but players of that quality usually adjust pretty well. I just think that would push the D from decent to great.

They'll have to move money out to do that. In terms of moves they can make without relying on another team, I'd go after Suter as the top priority.
