@NBTW

So we're back to point A, where my arguments stands. History says they WON'T make the largest offer, so they're NOT a serious contender/destination for the TOP UFAs chasing their big career $$ contract.

All the Caps have to do is prove me right again this offseason like they've done since they signed Lang.

Whatever dude. Again, nothing to do with the premise of my argument. You're arguing something completely different, and I'm done.

Well on the bright side, we can sell to free agents the fact Michael Jordan once called the Verizon Center home for a while. Talk about premier free agents.

What a stupid argument.

CCF is basically agreeing with NBTW but won't ****ing give up.

Both are saying the same exact thing, the Caps don't give good offers to UFAs.

GMGM is pretty secretive about what he does, no one even knew Vokoun was shopping himself, yet they know the top destinations for certain UFA which they are just full of **** lying and supporting evidence is where their family is or where they were born.

Who knows Suter may want to play with Green. Only him and his family know where he truly wants to be.

It seems like every time there is a big UFA and because they were born near or in Michigan or American, Detroit is the front runner. Never ****ing happens.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suter's_Tavern

Suter's Tavern, also known officially as The Fountain Inn, was a tavern located in Georgetown, which later became part of Washington, D.C., and it served as Georgetown's best-known hostelry until the emergence of several newer taverns in the 1790s.[1]

John Suter established the tavern in the late 18th century in Georgetown on Fishing Lane, near today's intersection of 31st and K Streets, NW. Though the precise location of the tavern is not entirely clear, it is known to have been located about two blocks southwest of the Old Stone House, where Mr. Suter's son, John Jr., resided.[2] The building that housed the tavern has been described as a small building, one and half stories, with a large inn yard in back to accommodate coaches and wagons.[3] Suter continued to operate this tavern until his death in 1794, after which his wife continued running it until early 1796. By February of that year, Clement Sewall had taken over operations of the Fountain Inn, but by December 1796, he had left to operate the newly-built City Tavern (now the City Tavern Club). Eventually, Suter's Fountain Inn became an oyster-house and ultimately disappeared without record.[4]

George Washington and other notable residents frequented the tavern, which was the site of land deals involved in establishing Washington as the "Federal City".




In other words...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!

Talk to many around here and Laich centering OV was awesome in the playoffs and produced much success.

its about the money only to the extent that its important to the given player. we all know top of the line players that dont test free agency, that sign long term home town discount contracts.

do you think cal ripken stayed in baltimore his entire career because the orioles offered what he knew would be the best money and term? no.

so, if there are players that we know take less money to remain with their team, there are also going to be free agents that have a deeper agenda that getting the most money.

we know that jeremy roenick famously spit on leonsis contract offer publically to take less money to play for the flyers. i'd be stunned if the hurricanes had to offer a brother staal the biggest money and longest term to get his name on a contract to play on the same team with eric.
michael nylander didnt want to stay in new york and took less money than the oil offered to sign with the caps.

if ryan suter wants to play for the detroit red wings, it wont matter what the capitals offer so long as the detroit contract is reasonable.

Can anyone name a high profile UFA under 30 who has taken what could reasonably be assumed to be less than the market would bear since the lockout? I've got nothing.

Sedin twins likely could have gotten more than $6.1M on the open market, though the twin factor makes them harder to peg.

under 30 limits the pool significantly. does it not? since the lockout, how many top end under 30's have made it to the open market?

checking.
2011 under 30 was zherdev, campoli and emery
2010 was matthew lombardi
2009 comrie, cammalleri, connolly
2008 avery and kelly
so far no big names...cammalleri is the closest thing.

I never said open market. Kovalchuk, Hossa, Briere, Chara, Savard, Cammalleri, Gomez, Bouwmeester, Havlat, Ribeiro, Gaborik etc. There's tons.

If we assume that there are 5 attractive teams who bid on both (Detroit, Chicago, Washington, Minny, LA for example), then there's 40% chance that at least one of them signs in DC. So, the fact that they DO NOT sign in DC doesn't mean they're not an attractive destination...

You're right, his OWN right players, not UFA's.

Also important to note that one of the two was one of the worst contracts in NHL history that was such a boat anchor the Caps had to pay him to play for a rival. The 2nd, not looking so good right now either.

Are those really feathers in their cap to mention in praise??

Too many people caught up in terminology. SURE, OK, I'll agree, on the surface Washington SHOULD be an attractive destination. The issue is that the Caps have publicly said over and over they won't overpay for UFAs. Until the do, they're not a real contender to sign any big names.

I'm praying the Caps change their tune and sign one of the two this summer, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Money is no longer the main issue for UFA's. If you want to go to Detroit you can go to Detroit. There are so many ways to draw-out or backload/frontload contracts these days that if you want to go to a team that wants you..they will make it happen regardless of how much

Just to nitpick, if we're assuming that it's a random selection between the five "attractive destinations" in both cases and that the events are independent, then it's a 36% chance that at least one of them signs in DC (80% probability of not signing in DC * 80% probability of not signing in DC = 64% probability that neither signs in DC. 100% - 64% = 36% is therefore the probability that at least one signs in DC given the prior constraints).
