Capitals firesale

Not very likely, GMGM will probably keep everybody except maybe the coach. He will give a raise to Erskine and Schultz just because they tried. He will probably get rid of Erat, to get a 3rd round pick from Detroit or something.

However, let's assume everybody is on the trade block now.

Ovechkin, Green, Backstrom, Carlson, Alzner, Laich...

Let the bidding begin.

Personally, If only one was to leave, I would trade Backstrom, and if Spezza is available and healthy, he would be the one I would want to get.

Backstrom lacks the scoring touch, but is a better playmaker than Spezza imo.

Thoughts?

Caps need size on the back end, and speed.. I'd rather Green leaves before Carlson.

Needs a piece of youth added, but I'd consider it from the Caps, despite Backstrom being my favorite player in the league. The Caps need a massive shakeup, and Ovi unfortunately won't be the one to go. Koivu shifts the focus from offense to defense, despite the fact that he's good offensively and Backstrom's good defensively. Clutterbuck brings definite value on the wings.

Plus, two Nicklas Backstrom's on the same team?

Wow, 3rd rounder for Erat? Guess that trade looks really bad now.

Caps need better two-way forwards and more solid D. Those guys don't help that unfortunately.

Ovechkin, Backstrom and Green are going nowhere at this point.Unless of course they force a trade.

Everyone else, there's a chance.

also, let's hope he trades for some decent ice.No?

Next season Kuznetsov will come and Laich will be back and Wilson will play whole season. Thats three quality pieces.

I would use Neuvirth, Orlov, Johansson, Erat, Chimera as tradebaits. Get rid off Erskine and Schultz.

Ovie-Kuznetsov-Laich
?-Bäckstrom-Brouwer
Fehr-Perreault-Wilson
Ward-Beagle-Hendricks

Alzner-Green
?-Carlson
Oleksy-Hillen

Holtby,
veteran backup

Bolded #1: Oates stays, zero doubt about it.
Bolded #2: Erskine already got a slight raise.
Bolded #3: Schultz is bought out, book it. We've had 3M of cap hit in the press box for two years now.
Bolded #4: No he won't, he made it pretty clear Marty is part of our short-term core.
Bolded #5: ...let's not. Please. It's not realistic.
Bolded #6: Spezza is older and more expensive.

This falls on deaf ears. Leonsis doesn't care about accountability.

Well, considering this poster also proposed Caps to fire Oates and extend Schultz...

Two of Kesler, Edler or Schneider, our first and any prospect not named Jensen for Ovechkin.

Even in a total rebuild, he's staying put, face hockey in the capital and that, but for sheer value?

The only piece of interest is Edler. This trade doesn't make us better.
