Should I go to silly season thread?
Only if they move Green and even then, I'm high on Orlov so it's not a need.

ruProf's deal isn't close to landing #2 + Stastny. You have to overpay to get either of those from Colorado. Both of them would cost Backstrom or something else we don't want to pay.

I want him as 7th, preferably. It wouldn't be the end of the world for him at #6, but it would make our defense a lot thinner (especially with the AHL platoon at #7).

If McPhee is gonna trade Semin for futures to convert futures into players later... then we will see it soon enough. I doubt that McPhee will trade Semin for 17th pick or smth. Top-5 or top-7 probably, right?

Just sit back and enjoy the ride. Probably fall asleep halfway through.
Depends on how much you drink to medicate.

Uh, Backstrom > Stastny outside of whatever the **** happened the 2nd half of last season.

Semin for futures is fine by me so long as they use all that cap space on Richards.

WTF is River Styx?

Isn't Erik Johnson a righty? Why would they trade for Green? I thought Larsson is lefty and that's another story.


On the other hand, Wideman's value is probably close to Liles. 2nd round pick (2012 pick going to Colorado is Boston's pick acquired by Toronto, so its a low one)

Green is RFA to be and 2 times Norris finalist - should be much more expensive.

Yeah, no ****. But that's the kind of return Colorado would want for two of their top four assets. They're not going to trade a #1 center and the #2 overall pick for a collection of B assets.

Green might be a workable solution (as he's only going to be an RFA), but I think they'd prefer just to stick with Stastny and draft Larsson. Especially given that they already have a #1 RD in Johnson and a number of quality PMD prospects in Elliot, Barrie, and Holos. And that they have the #11 pick as well, and could realistically pick up a Murphy or Siemens there.

Semin having the ability to walk makes him a non-starter for any deals for either asset.

The goalies are not enough on their own to pry out either asset.

#26 doesn't command a whole lot of value compared to #2 or Stastny. Especially in this draft.

I've already been over why I don't think Sherman covets Schutlz.

They're not going to collect a bunch of lesser assets in exchange for two of their biggest pieces of their rebuild. Only way to pry those kind of assets from Colorado would to be offering them an upgrade from those. Backstrom. Thus why I don't think it would or should happen. I'll stick with Nicky.

Will the Caps still suck after this weekend?

I guess it's no surprise that I'm really down on the direction the Caps are going in. What is the plan? What players make the so-called core? Should there be a core? So far, the core approach is a fail. Hockey is a team game, after all. If there are 4-5 "core" players what are the non-core guys supposed to think? Why should they care if they are not even core?

There are so many problems that require addressing. The obvious ones:

- Depth at C. This could be corrected with a high end, expensive addition like Brad Richards. The Caps might not have enough dough available.

- The Power Play. It would seem that the Caps have plenty of talent already for this but they sure did suck at it this year.

- Resolve the goalie situation. How many franchises have won the Cup who don't commit to a #1 goalie for, what, the last 4 years?

- The D is still not a good blend. They are soft, nice guys all over the ice.

#capitals might move pieces. #panthers were rumored to be getting #versteeg but they want to move assets. Tallon builds through draft.

REPEAT: NO ONE HAS TO LISTEN TO ME.

My source (yes you can laugh as much as you want) has informed me that a huge shake-up is coming today or tomorrow. Semin/Green are the ones involved.

Obviously, there's always a chance that it may not happen but he's almost always accurate. REPEAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO LISTEN TO ME.
