The money is a little better in Minnesota, but in terms of his own legacy, Suter-Weber would have dominated for a long stretch of their careers and through their primes. Hard to say whether Suter will ever achieve what he could have.

As for Weber, maybe we could give Nashville one of our 1st pairing lefthanded defenders in Hunwick/Wilson/Hejda.

I like Marchand too. Maybe Olver could become our Marchand?

Holtby with 2 terrible goals in a matter of minutes. I used to like watching the caps play but damn they haven't been good this year.

Braden Holtby is not a good goalie (or at least today he is not a good goalie)

Olver is not nearly as skilled as Marchand. He is super feisty though.

Holtby isn't a very good goalie, every time I see him he screams average to me (much like Neuvirth), I like him because he's a former Blade, but his numbers from last years playoffs were greatly influenced by Hunter's system.

Holtby in Vezina form. Can't really blame him for the last one, but he's been awful today (and every other day this season).

It's a bit sad seeing Ovechkin like this. You could tell a couple of years ago that defenders learned how to defend him and he hasn't adjusted his game in any way. He's so predictable that even marginal defensemen can play him well.

That contract is going to be very ugly very soon.

And Spacek of all people showed the way how to play against him.

Called Holtby coming back down to earth this summer. Hunters system kept everything to the outside.

I love how Schneider and holtby were the next great ones and varly was just an injury prone head case, that had a good 30 games in the NHL. As if the small sample sizes didn't matter only to varly.

Tbh I don't think holtby is that bad but he was never the next great one a lot of people thought he was.

I'm getting the same feeling about Forsberg as I had about Pääjärvi in Sweden. I like so many parts of their game, but there seems to be something missing. Forsberg has more compete than MPS so I guess I l like him a bit more.

Actually MPS looked really decent against us in Edmonton. That said Forsberg (fantasic shot) will be a good player no doubt and probably will be better than MPS. Though overall Washington and Pittsburgh failed by not picking Grigorenko, IMO.

In the end I do like our injury prone franchise goaler.

It's likely that Caps are already out of the playoffs. They need to go .640 the rest of the way to get to 55 points.

Not impossible but with the way they're playing, it's more likely they get a top 5 pick

Not sure what this means. Why, would Dan be on the hot seat?

The devils want players in the 3rd or 4th round... Like most teams or something like that.

Oh Chico do you ever think before you talk?

Waste Management Phoenix Open. There's a joke somewhere in there about Phoenix going to waste and being open for the taking.

Sens getting screwed by the refs. Get a goalie interference penalty instead of a goal. He barely touched Price and it was outside the crease.
