With Semin, this team probably is 8th or 9th in the conference. He would carry this team on it's back for stretches. We would be rolling 2 deadly lines. McPhee really showed his ass this summer with letting Semin walk after FINALLY GETTING THE SECOND LINE CENTER. I'm still pissed off about it.
You think Sasha would be performing at this level if he stayed with the Caps?
First trade between the two franchises, I'm going with Caps trading Tom Rowe for Alan Hangslaben.
Thank you. Nailed it.
Pretty bad I remember hearing about that trade on WTOP when Phil Wood hosted a sports show from 10 PM to 1 AM and after Caps games. The trade went down in January, 1980 and I remember Phil voicing his displeasure about the trade when he announced it.
