He's a slightly better version of John Erskine, IMO.

Has stretches where he's solid, and stretches where he's bad. I do think he's meaner than #4 though.

Well, we've always wanted a big #2 center. Maybe Sarge can be the guy.

Slow, but he absolutely owns the corners and dominates wall play behind the goal line in his own end..Most forwards are genuinely afraid of him.

I don't see how you pass up on Murray if he's cheaply available.

Yeah, he's slow. Ask Hal Gill how being slow killed his game. Murray would be the perfect bottom pairing defenseman capable of extended #4 play if we need him to. In this conference he's a ******* tower of terror.

Murray-Orlov = domination

Absolutely agree!..Plus, I always get the feeling that the Refs are so entertained by him that they let him get away with a ton of shady play - boarding, roughing, holding etc..

If there's anything this team doesn't need, it's 3rd pairing left-side defensemen.

Alzner Green
Erskine Carlson
Murray Orlov

is an improvement on what we have right now however you put up. At least from the popcorn department, which is all this season is gonna be good for.

Just because we have a bunch of left handed crap we can stick at 3D doesn't mean 3D itself couldn't be better.

Once you realize that the alternative is to play Poti or Hamr it actually doesn't sound that bad.

Would be fun to watch opposing forwards try to play against that bottom 4 if we give them the green light to draw all the blood they want.

Admit it, you want to see Orlov flip ratface right into the path of Murray's bodyslam. Marchand pinball > winning hockey games.

Why the **** do people hate Hamr? The dude isn't notoriously bad or anything.

Outside of the brain dead play last game that led to Toronto's first goal, Poti hasn't been that bad. No idea why Hamrlik hasn't been given a shot over Schultz at some point, either.

I'm fine with Poti and Hamrlik playing on the 3rd pair.

With Gologoski scratched for the Stars in their most recent game, maybe he could be had. Hopefully GMGM is still on good terms since the Ribeiro-trade.
I feel that a left-handed shot has been missing from the Caps powerplay for too long!
He's signed at $4,6M 3 more years after this one.

Alzner-Green
Goligoski-Carlson

That's a pretty decent looking top-4 IMO.

Johansson + Hamrlik
for
Goligoski+Fiddler maybe?

I'd rather just wait for Orlov to get healthy.

Not a fan of Goligoski.

MW6, in all seriousness...are you George McPhee?

I swear, every single one of your posts is either here or in the Trade forum, regarding proposing a trade.

If MW6 was McPhee, Johansson would be long gone by now.

OV-Backstrom-Kessel



3 Years ago, that would have been the best line in the NHL.

Now, it would combine for 22 goals a year.

Highest paid 4th line in the NHL.

No, Kessel would be on a different line.

Need 4 lines that "can score".

I wonder if the Isles are getting ready to move Visnovsky with their acquisition of Thomas.

Hamrlik+ for Visnovsky?
