That's bananas. Didn't see that coming.

The Caps are still confident to re-sign him. Interesting.

Let's see how it turns out.

The caps still own his rights, he's still a RFA... so it's not like he's going anywhere unless he gets an offer sheet... which the Caps can choose to match of course, or take the draft pick compensation.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Wings were interested.

No doubt. Although, Green isn't very good defensively...

The Wings don't do offer sheets to other team's RFA's. Besides, with how their future looks, they need all of their draft picks going forward!

That'd be a good news for teams playing them.

This.

Besides, anyone with actual talent would be insane to go to Detroit right now.

Anyways, I can't think Semin going to PIT.

That'd be kinda funny IMO.

The complete lack of any news on Semin makes me think he's seriously considering going to the KHL. And with a potential lockout looming, much more money in the KHL, and his reputation around the league, I wouldn't blame him if he did.

Regarding Mike Green, I don't believe he would become an unretricted free agent unless he went to arbitration and the Capitals refused the arbitrator's ruling....but I may be mistaken.

Green with a high end shutdown D-man partner would be just awesome. If he could stay healthy and motivated. I think a one-year, $5-6m deal would make sense for the Caps. You don't just walk away from a 40g winger and a big time offensive D-man in the same offseason.

Yeah and I actually think with either Stuart or Kronwall he would click decently. But then again there are still much better options for him, Green and Chara?

Well that was quick.

Caps re-sign Mike Green

3 years, just over $6m per.

Yeah I would have done two years at $6m per but three...that's a bit. Oh well. They better hope he stays healthy. He is a beast though and is crapped on too much (like Semin).

Hopefully he can stay healthy. That would be my only concern.

Semin's probably trying to squeeze as much signing bonus as possible out of teams. That way, if there's a lockout, he gets paid the signing bonus and can get a contract in the KHL for a year.

A bit of an overpayment IMO, but not that bad.

Just read a little bit more about the story and wow, the Jets didn't know that when they re-signed him.
