Predict the Caps' deadline moves

Alright folks, let's see if any of us can pull a borro and nail some of the Caps' deadline moves:

I'll start:

- Heward to Vancouver for Santala (salary dump) + Atlanta's 3rd '07.

- Zubrus to Toronto for Wellwood.

- McNeil + Klepis (throw in) + NYR's 4th '07 to Columbus for Fedorov.

GMGM replaces Ovechkin's bud Zubrus with Fedorov. It's a stinker of a contract next year ($6.08M) but GMGM likes his reclamation projects and hopes Ovechkin can up Fedorov's declining level of play and mentor Ovechkin on the finer points of offensive zone attack strategy. Columbus basically just dumps Fedorov's contract so that they can go heavy after Gomez/Briere/Drury in free agency.

Zednik for Souray.

I don't think the Montreal faithful have to much faith in him, after last night

deadline moves
- Heward to VAN for a 3rd in 2008
- Jason Kidd to LAL for Kwame Brown & a 2nd
- Zuby to EDM for Lupul (there could be a draft pick in there, nothing higher than a 3rd)

in the offseason
- Gomez inks a $5.1 mill / 5 year deal


still need a veteran top 2 D-man

Heward to someone for a 5th
Zubrus to anyone that is stupid for a 1st
Zednik to who cares for a 2nd

Offseason the Caps sign Backstrom and make him their big summer addition.

Zednik for a 3rd rounder.

id almost bet the farm that whoever gets moved, plural if that happens, will be for picks and only picks.

unless makfi pulls a capybara out of his hat and makes a multiplayer swap, eminger+zubrus, or eminger+sutherby, etc., for a qulaity player, we'll be left pondering how the 6th rounder he got for heward will help the team.

That might be the most likely scenario. I think GMGM won't be able to find any diamonds at the trade deadline for ZZ+H, so he will trade for picks (which he does very well). Then in the off-season the Caps will under-bid for most of the big available centers, eventually losing out in the process.

I would LIKE to see:

Eminger + for Zherdev
Zubrus for a first plus a project (preferably at C) with top-six potential
Heward for a pick
Beech for some cigarette butts

Sign Drury in the summer to a 4-year deal.

I posted my W-dream one on another posting but I'll add it here.

Zednik to Detroit for a 2nd
Zubrus + Heward to Vancover for a 1st and 5th
Eminger+Van's 1st+Flash to EDM for Lupul
Gomez 5.5M for 4 years
Hannan at 6M for 4 years

I have no confidence in #3 through #5

The 6th would help the team by getting the team an asset that McPhee probably won't or sholdn't re-sign in the summer

not expecting a lot, unless someone gets desperate and overpays

No no no he'll trade it for a 5th in '08 to Buffalo. Then trade that for a 4th in '09 to Van. Then trade it for a .... all the way to a 1st in '12. Then Ted can get all gooshy about our roster with 23 first round picks and rookie camp with 30 of 50 that are first rounders.

Yes but I hear the '12 draft is supposed to be one of the deepest ever!

I actually predict that the Caps make some noise this off season. I know, not a trade deadline answer like the thread asks for, but a thought that I have been having. AO is going into his RFA season, and in a couple of seasons beyond that he begins to seriously consider what is going to go on with him as a UFA. I think that the Caps may be looking to make some moves to speed up the process a bit this off season, if for nothing else to keep AO happy. I do not see Backstrom as being the only big addition.

Eh, more of a wish list than predictions:

Heward for something

Clymer for something less

Bradley for a replacement end board

Zednik and Eminger for Zherdev or Lupol

Sutherby for a pick/prospect

Resign Zubrus

I expect Zubrus to be traded somewhere we don't expect...like the Gonchar to Boston trade which was not at all where I was looking. I'm not sure what they think of Eminger at this point...it's weird to scratch him and not play him...I think he'll stay in town tho. My sources - the voices in my head - say to be on the lookout for the following trades:

Zubrus and S Morrisonn to ANA for Getzlaf

Burke looks like he's about to do something crazy and this is it. Honestly that's not enough coming to the Caps but ANA doesn't have any draft picks until 2017.

Zednik and Heward to PIT for R Malone and a 3rd round pick


Brooks Laich to CAL for a 2nd round pick


Matt Pettinger to DAL for a 2nd round pick



The Caps front 6 next year looks like:

AO - Getzlaf - FA sniper
Semin - Backstrom - Fehr



Ok...so none of that will happen. Sue me.

Yeah...Gomez already makes $5 mil (from the stingy Devils). He's looking for a more than a $500k raise I would suspect.

Which one, their 2009? Well that is Tavares year and maybe they'll suck by then.

GMGM will shoot himself in the head before that would hapepen. To admit he was wrong and passed over Getzlaf! He wouldn't do that cause it implicates only him and he has noone to throw under the bus to protect him.

More importantly who in their right mind would trade Mo for Getzlaf? Come on people...this isn't NHL 07.

Last year is looking like an abberation from a goals perspective, but he's on pace to have his 2nd best assist year ever and 3rd best point total. Hardly a deathblow heading into free agency.

He's gonna get paid.

Many NHL GM's would, for example.

Don't be passive-aggressive. Come out and say, John Galt: you are not in your right mind. John Galt: you play and do trades on NHL 2007 too much. John Galt: I do not like you and your bad trade ideas.

Fedorov is a head case...but gawd...the possibility of seeing Ted & Sergei's Dad swinging at each other in the owner's box might be worth it.
