I'm sure that some of his international games were played on NA rinks. That's a fact.

And we are talking not about substing OV just Schultz.

Also you can name another defender who would fit our needs.

Is a perfectly acceptable d. Ditch Schultz and his absurd contract for whatever you can. Buy another dman or work some McPhee magic to get an extra 3rd pairing guy.
Apparently chop liver to some.

TXPD is funny, saying there is none whatsoever, the ultimate authority on international games. Discounting the quality of international play, to someone that lives across the seas even. The games have never been more similar. The NHL has evolved into a skating league, which is quite similar to the style of play seen for decades in international play.

None whatsoever, thats good for a laugh.

I had always thought Kronwall was a good fit for us. Not that he is available, but we need someone that steps up and hits, not just steps up.... and pulls up. As long as BB is in charge, and his directive that the risk taking defensemen is the key to a sustained offense.

RH, you more than anyone should know what I am talking about. International tournament play requires beating the same team a maximum of twice, almost never in consecutive games and often on neutral ice.

I am sure the quality of play is outstanding, but the international are round robins followed by a single elimination medal round.

Stanley Cup playoffs means night in and night out against the same team. That is what makes it so difficult and that is not remotely reproduced on the international stage.

Everyone complaining about the Shultz and Poti contracts -- don't act as though they aren't something we can get out of? Shultz has trade value - not alot, but he could return a prospect and lower draft picks. Sure, you'd like to get more for the guy, but if his contract really is "crippling" the team as some of you like to make out, show him the door....

As far as Poti is concerned, we just have to bury him in the minor leagues. I know that is a crappy thing to do, but he is not contributing, and has been given ample time to get healthy. If it doesn't look like he is going to get on the ice this year, see if he will retire, or give him the Nylander treatment....

Rick Dudley is currently a "free agent" General Manager. Winnipeg's new ownership has decided to bring in their own group.


Com'n Ted, show the fans a little good faith, can McPhee a guy who's done a horrible job with the best situation possible, and go get this guy, who did the best he could in a very bad situation.

Poti isn't getting buried in the minors. LTIR or retirement if he can't play. Schultz isn't being given away....McPhee covets him and there are plenty of teams where he would fit in nicely in the 2nd/3rd pair and be an upgrade. He's got value IMO.

No shocker there....they won't play in the big $$ UFA market. They're going to stick with giving the big $$ to the players they developed.

Dudley was a coach too. Might as well fill two positions with one guy. Dudley's only lost in the playoffs twice as a coach.

You realize that in the most recent issue of the Hockey News, the free agent issue, they projected Polak to sign an RFA contract in the $1-2 mil range right? How could that have been possible if everyone feels he is significantly better than a guy who signed a decently higher deal in the same situation a year before?

You feel Polak is better than Schultz but then again you feel anyone/anything is better than Schultz. THN apparently doesn't feel the same way or they would have felt him deserving of a much better RFA deal, maybe like the one he was able to sign by giving up a couple of UFA years in the process.

We can agree at least that Tyutin had some games with high quality competition. Both at junior and adult level.

As long as you don't come with names I will try to get some.

Here is the list of next summer's UFA defensemen.

http://capgeek.com/free_agents.php?y...D&fa_type_id=2

Who is more suitable than Tyutin and is available? Any experienced ones?

Wanna do Suter for Semin? =) Name your decision, plz.

Parise would be a good fit for any team. But there's little reason to add him to the Capitals. Especially considering the price of prying him from NJ (in either trade or offer sheet compensation) and that the only reason NJ would get rid of him is if his contract demands are beyond what they can pay.

I'd possibly consider Green for Parise although Greenie can go back to his PPG play with improved stout defense we can't trade him.
