The Caps need to be stronger down the middle to compete now. Johansson is a 20 year old finesse C. He might be a long-term solution.

He's going to get paid and the Caps have bigger priorities.

I don't understand. The team looks nearly the same as last year's team that got destroyed by TB. There is no sign of a shake up at all, this is quite obviously Ted and Co. milking the cow.

We really expect Neuvy to win a cup next year? Neuvy! Hahaha. You win cups with goalies like Thomas, Fleury, not Neuvy.

The fact that McPhee has no interest in signing a real goalie shows me he has no intention of winning a cup any time soon. See you in two years when Neuvy grows up.

Laich, he isn't a 2C. Stop trying to pretend he somehow will play like a C now that he has this rediculous contract.

#1: veteran goalie. #2. Stand up D-man. #3: 2C. #4: #2 RW.

How about signing Connolly and ryder, and trading Schultz and fehr to free up cap so we can resign hannan/sign martinek and sign Jovanoski?

Ovechkin-backstrom-knuble
Semin-Connolly-Brouwer
Laich-mojo-Ryder
Chimera-Sjogren-Hendricks
Beagle

Jovanoski-green
Alzner-Carlson
Hannan/martinek-wideman

Neuvy
Holtby

Nice looking lineup

If he's playing like a 2C, in the 2C slot, he's a 2C. Being big is not a requirement. Being good enough is. I am definitely worried about his draws though, and being bigger would help that.

The Caps are competitive now. Does Johansson put them over the top as the 2C? Maybe, maybe not. Would you rather have Laich there? Sjogren? Eakin? Hendricks? Those are the current roster centers...

The biggest hole on the Caps roster is 1RW, not 2C. Knubs is too old to take first-pairing punishment. For the Caps to get the most value out of him, they need to let him get some easier minutes.

I'd bet on the term as much as the cap hit tbh...

After Hannan/Arnott departure

FORWARDS
Alexander Ovechkin ($9.538m) / Marcus Johansson ($0.900m) / Mike Knuble ($2.000m)
Erik Cole ($4.000m) / Nicklas Backstrom ($6.700m) / Alexander Semin ($6.700m)
Troy Brouwer ($2.500m) / Brooks Laich ($4.500m) / Eric Fehr ($2.200m)
Jason Chimera ($1.875m) / Jay Beagle ($0.512m) / Mattias Sjogren ($0.900m)
D.J. King ($0.637m) / Matt Hendricks ($0.825m)

DEFENSEMEN
Jeff Schultz ($2.750m) / Mike Green ($5.250m)
Karl Alzner ($2.750m) / John Carlson ($0.845m)
John Erskine ($1.500m) / Dennis Wideman ($3.937m)
/ Patrick McNeill ($0.525m)

GOALTENDERS
Michal Neuvirth ($1.150m) / Braden Holtby ($0.637m)

BUYOUTS: Tyler Sloan ($0.233m)

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $63,367,905; BONUSES: $80,000
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $932,095


1. I think it's thin at center.
2. Not much cap space to callup Orlov/Eakin, but could be better if Alzner/Brouwer will get less.
3. Too many wingers. BB will ruin such a roster. Fehr/Chimera/Semin are to be traded. Or no Cole signing.
4. Less defensive forwards on the roster.

BUT

to trade Semin is very hard. No team will trade something of a value for Semin now. There is no sense in it yet.

THUS

Ovechkin-Backstrom-Knuble (Knuble -> Kuz next year)
Laich-Johansson-Cole/Semin
Brouwer-Sjogren-Fehr
Chimera-Gordon-Beagle (Chimera -> Eakin next year)
Hendricks, King

Schultz-Green
Alzner-Carlson
UFA/Trade-Wideman (Wideman/Green -> Orlov next year)
Erskine

Why do we need Hendricks again? To buy out next summer?

It's a shame capgeek doesn't have left/right handedness. Thought Wisniewski would be a fit and then boom! Righty.

Ward's probably the best option of those as far as value is concerned. He was a playoff stud--moreso than Bergenheim.

If J.P. Dumont gets bought out, he might be an interesting reclamation project for a league-minimum type salary.

Btw

What about Orlov on the left side this fall?

Alzner-Carlson
Schultz-Green
Orlov-Wideman
Erskine

And then there is trade deadline.


2012 UFA D-men:

Tyutin
Beauchemin
Sarich
Jackman
Gleason

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


PS: Both Souray and Orlov will be cheap and can offer big shot from the point in PP while being left handed.

Shea Weber should be added to the UFA list, as should Suter. I'd do everything possible to get that pair if I were GMGM. Makes a Green trade make a ton of sense. This top four would be sick:

Suter-Weber
Alzner-Carlson

I frankly wouldn't care who was in the third pairing. That top four would play upwards of 50 minutes every game.

Marty Reasoner would be nice and reasonable, Upshall would be pricy.

Yeah, I'm thinking Upshall will be this year's Colby Armstrong. I'd love him on the Caps, but he's gonna get PAID.

Its tough to know what the agent is saying and doing with his client. Varly seemed honest in his NHL aspirations. I think the kids usually leave anything financial up to their money starved agent, they are not financial analysts. Damn lawyers
Wouldn't be the first agent/player combo who thought more of themselves than was reality. Especially if they feel the Caps kept Varly on the bench as some sort of way to keep his contract down (which to me sounds like insanity from an agent). The idea that the Caps would keep what they knew was the better option on the bench, just to save a few hundred thousand a year. I think Varly is getting horrible advice myself.

Stop agreeing with my thoughts. It doesn't seem right.

I don't expect King to ultimately make the cut and they absolutely need Boyd Gordon or a proven replacement at 4C.

I expect whatever they do tomorrow (if anything) will be of the depth variety: 4C, bottom six depth, depth D, back-up goalie...along those lines. Anything more and it signals that Poti is done and/or more significantly they're setting themselves up to pretty much have to make a deal or two. No talks with Hannan make me really question their aggressiveness as well as the extent to which the Poti situation is resolved.

There seems to perhaps be a willingness to make moves and the vague outlines of what they want the team to be like but it's time to act.
