Didn't realize Galiardi could be had/signed for so cheaply. Another playoff gamer gone, though given how unimpressed this board seems to be with those types it probably doesn't matter. Capable of playing center at a 3rd line level too.

How does the long time (only?) owner getting very long in the tooth factor in all the bold moves over the years? Win now before I die?

Just a thought.

That's a pretty common assumption among Flyers fans and Philadelphia residents. Ed Snider really wants a freaking Cup.

Anyone know if ROR can choose to allow Avs to trade him?

I question Pronger being brought on considering the division it created on the team. He got good returns on paper, but the on ice product is been going down hill since.

Is that Vinnie quote real? Holy **** if it is!

Coyotes went full retard and gave Mike ****ing Smith an insane amount of money. Anyway, we are broke as a joke now and will have to let Boyd Gordon walk (which will destroy our PK) and will probably have to trade Vermette's 3.75m salary (despite him being a fantastic fit, not unlike Gordon) which leaves us with one single center under contract (Hanzal).

So anyway, I don't know much about Washington, so forgive me if this is idiotic. I just want to throw it out there and see what you think.

Vermette and Klesla for Perreault and Beagle.

Is that at all appealing? Or is my ignorance overwhelming?

I think Perreault is a guy the Caps should keep while he's cheap... probably prefer to move Johansson in that situation. I can't argue against the value though, since Vermette is someone I'd hope the Caps would target. I'd just rather have him and Perreault complementing each other, not one or the other.

Possible if Latta plays next year I guess..

But currently as it stands thats trading 2 centers for 1 while needing one at the moment. So without Latta our 2 centers are Backstrom + Vermette... Need 2 more.

^ if we throw in the rights to Gordon? You guys know he's a PK and shot blocking beast. F/O specialist, too.

The Caps don't have nearly enough cap space.

It's a shame - value-wise and needs-wise it's a perfect fit, but once Alzner and Johansson are sign it'll put us around 2M over the cap before we've even got a 4C. Could be done if GMGM were open to moving some of Neuvirth, Ward, and Laich, but there's not much chance of that happening.

Narrowing it down to just Perrault and Klesla could work, although it doesn't leave much room for a 12th forward.

All we've been told is "after the draft and before the schedule is released."

C depth:

Backstrom
Johansson (?)
Laich (?)
Perreault
Beagle
Latta

Add another C who can defend adequately and you have options (2 checking lines or 3 scoring).

Cheap version is BGordon, more expensive is Vermette. I don't see a need to pay big money to Bozak or similar player.

Still there is a possibility for short-term contract with Briere.

But we could do +C and +2LD without Briere. And while we think Briere could help in playoffs, Kuz could help also.

Oates is the X factor here.

Maybe he will make it Ward-Perreault-Ovechkin and this line will own everybody.


EDIT: We could have had Semin still money-wise. Would you like Semin now instead of Erat and 2,5M cap space?

At anyone thinking the Caps make the playoffs as currently constructed. Could probably sneak in with Briere, but we all know he isnt signing here

Current status with this team, we will barely squeak into the playoffs under the new allignment. Not that GMGM can do alot about it due to the cap issues, but he recently has made multiple signings that were sketchy decisions suc as; Erskine, Schultz, Neuvy (current back-up), Ward (playoff signing) that have put us in a bind and limited what we can do. It should be an interesting ride to the season, but dont expect any drastic changes "we are happy with our team"

No. And I don't care about FF, the Ginger or anyone else so long as we end up with a real 2C.

Filppula for second line ? Ward or Laich can center the third. Match Erat + Filppula + Brouwer top line.
