Hmmm the Caps are trying to dump salary for prospects and picks...why take on Koivu and Brisebois?

No...how about Witt and Carter for Hossa and Hainsey?

I am not looking to start a debate over Koivu's worth, but in the course of restocking the Capitals' prospect pool, and in his NHL-level trades, of the last two years, George McPhee has systematically turned over the more skilled tranche of Caps forwards and replaced them with younger, bigger and more physical specimens, culled chiefly from the WHL ranks.

Add the fact that he makes more money than any Capital will be making for a while, and there's little chance Saku Koivu is the sort of player for whom McPhee would trade. He is not looking to add a small center, regardless of his skill level. He does not meet the style of play that McPhee would prefer to see his team play once the kids develop.

When/if the Caps trade Witt, Carter, Grier, it will be for promising prospects and/or high draft picks, not established players approaching 30 years of age who are making a pretty penny. If somehow NHL players do come back, they will probably be defensemen.

EDIT: The Capitals cannot absorb the Brisebois salary either. Together, those two players make what... $8M, $9M a year? Impossible trade for the Caps. Looks like $4.25M for Koivu and $4M for Brisebois. No chance in Hades the Caps take on that money. In case you had not noticed, the Caps have gone from a $50M team to a $25M team since mid-January, and they intend to keep it that way.

Come on guys. Leave Saks alone.

First of all, as Ive said before, tradeing Saku would be the worst move Gainey could make right now.

Secondly, if, tragedy of all tragedies, Koivu is traded, I'd hope we could get a better player than Anson Carter (whom I've never really liked) in return.

Given a choice bewteen Koivu and Carte, I take Koivu.

Given a choice between Brisebois and Witt, I take Brisebois.

What's the point to that deal? Ensuring that we won't do much of anything in the playoffs?

Evidently the point was to saddle the Capitals with $8.25 million in salary, which is a non-starter.

You must be a Caps fan because MOntreal gets hosed big time in this deal.
Brisenois has been very good in his new role this year (4th - 5th D-Man) and Koivu has been Montreal's heart and soul for many years. Koivu has been playing extreemly well, why would Montreal trade him?

As much as a non starter as Montreal trading away their captain, best dman currently with Souray out, right before the playoffs.

Anyone take a gander at who this guys favourite teams are, conveniently,two of them are teams Montreal is currently in a playoff race with.
