3. Claim we cannot sign a 20 goal 50 point player for serious money because players that get signed for serious money produce no matter what. When it is pointed out that those players that "produce no matter what" actually sometimes have bad seasons due to circumstances, claim that it's "deflecting".

4. Make up some things (locker room cancer, bad influence because he doesn't speak English) to paint him negatively some more and roll with them.

Did I miss anything? I haven't been following the Semin lynch brigade as closely recently.
He doesn't finger paint as a mentor of the local youth arts movement enough as part of his commitment to being a professional hockey player.

Heh, for some reason I still remember both sides on here wanting Chimera, Gustafsson, 3rd for Bieksa.

If you don't know "the book" on Semin, you haven't been paying attention for the last 6 years+.


I hope Semin takes his "fans" with him to his next destination. Lord knows they won't be missed here.

That deal combined with the Eakin + 16th for Ribeiro deal would give the Caps quite a 1-2-3 center punch.

Ovechkin - Backstrom - Brouwer
Laich - Kesler - Semin?
Chimera - Ribeiro - ???
Hendricks - Beagle - Ward

Alzner - Carlson
Schultz - Ballard
Hamrlik - Orlov

That's without any other changes.

Anyone with access to capgeek able to see what that costs?

If you guys expect GMGM to make bold moves, you'll be disappointed.

I'm pretty sure it was actually Steckel instead of Chimera, although each was probably mentioned. What an absolute ripoff that would have been (the Steckel one).

Hamrlik and Orlov would clearly be the 2nd pairing in that situation.

Ballard sucked in Vancouver but he'd be ok here if he got a better partner than Schultz. Pretty much carbon copy of Wideman but with the hipchecks and may be better defensively solely on his physical/shotblocking edge. Change of scenery, 2nd pairing minutes and a decent partner would do him wonders.

No idea why the **** Vancouver would do that deal. Green does little for them compared to losing Kesler.

Yeah, but my "epeen" just grew even more when I posted that so it's worth it.

And who is going to be our other RD? Ballard is a left shot, and not going to be our PP QB.

Carlson hasn't shown that he can be the PP QB. So it's a no.

Interesting fact. Mojo only had 3 less points than Kesler this year.

You absolutely take Ballard if you're getting Kesler.

Schultz shouldn't be part of the discussion regardless of whether the trade happens or not.

Alzner-Carlson
Garrison-Ballard
Hamrlik-Orlov

That defense is fine.

If you get Kesler, trading for Ribeiro makes little sense with the roster you posted. The next move in that scenario has to be addressing the defense.

Why would McPhee trade MJ again?

It seems that if Plekanec/Pavelski/Thornton/Kesler(fantasy) would be available we will need to overpay for them... Overpaying for asset and losing MJ in one trade is... not GMGM's MO I guess.

Ribeiro or Jokinen (Boyes?! OMG) would be cheaper and will not require MJ. And I think those are much more probable in the first place.

MJ will be backup plan for any of them.


Would I trade MJ for Pavelski? Sure.


MJ and Green is unrealistic altogether IMHO. Green is as good as 5M QO. 99% =)

In this scenario, it's MJ for Kesler-- a guy that put up consecutive 70 point seasons and won a Selke.

I do it, and I'm as big a Johansson fan as there is on this board.

MJ for Kesler. Done.

I hate the diving, but when he doesn't have the puck he wants it.

His shot is pretty underrated too.

hamrlik-orlov as the 2nd pair? now thats a sure sign of things to come. meanwhile $4.2m for three more years is sent to the 3rd pair.

btw...if vancouver had wideman, he would have played as opposed to ballard who didnt.

nbtw....you are right. vancouver isnt going to trade kesler.

You called him wanting to go to Minnesota. If he wants to go to Minnesota bad, they don't have to do major outbidding.

No, I called Parise to Minnesota when everyone here was fawning over him. NBTW the most, and he said Minnesota was unlikely.
