So... Basically, Semin signed another one-year contract with the Caps for 9% of his previous one? I'm more than OK with that.

However, this means the stars are aligning for a stupid long-term contract for Green.

I thought we just heard MP was told he is slotted for a top 6 spot too

MJ Nick Ovi
Wolski Ribs Brouwer
Chimera Laich Ward
Hendricks Beagle Crabb
MP Sjogren

Drop the puck

the $600k contract or lowest paycheck on the team should tell anyone including wolski he is not signed as a starting top 6 player
this. i suspect he gets a chance to earn the spot in camp along with all the other "offensive" forwards not named Alex or Nick. Whether WW even makes the big club or not, it's a no-risk signing that doesn't keep GMGM from making a trade if he can, and maybe even provides a nice inexpensive, extra piece to throw into a package.

McPhee after the presser: "Oh... Wojtek... I meant the Bears' top 6. Sorry."

No one is ever told he's earmarked for the #13 slot. 'We see you as injury reserve, Mac.'

He could well play some top six minutes, but just because he was told it is so, that doesn't mean it's true. Marius Pathogen was told the same thing. Someone was lied to; no reason it can't just as easily be both of them.

It's like a carnival game, you can exchange five Calder Cups for one Stanley Cup, right?

He makes less than Tom Poti will, if that puts it in perspective.

In itself, good signing for sure -- zero risk, player with talent. The kind of move a lot of us expected, for sure.

I suppose this means that the Caps won't be signing any more UFAs.

The positive is that with a roster more or less complete, they can sit back and wait for the right trade to come up, assuming they're still looking to get better.

The negative is -- if this roster indeed stays as is, hard to see it make big waves in playoffs. A lot of players that haven't quite "arrived" -- MJ, MP, Wolski; how Ribeiro will mesh with available personnel is also a question -- we don't really have the type of wingers he had in Dallas, and Ovi requires a special kind of fit..

So.. good signing that doesn't really change expectations from the season..

Both.

Mostly I'm turned off by the idea of trading Orlov. I think that's a huge mistake for the organization.

Speculation/rumors are that Mueller is still suffering concussion symptoms.

BCF definitely would. There's an argument for it, for sure.

Any trade for Bobby Ryan is going to be an utterly laughable over-payment, so I really hope they're just staying out of it.

Orlov is the real deal and I agree.

There's two possibilities with Mike Green this year.

1) He'll play 14 games.
2) He'll play a full season, give us production and good d. Then disappear completely in the playoffs...probably culminating in an injury.

Who needs that?

edit: I guess we do, because we have no D depth.

Orlov didn't play in the playoffs, so I think many of you have forgotten how ****ing good Orlov is.

Yep, we didn't get anyone to replace Greenie, so Greenie stays.
