caps won the east last season without a career year and without its best players posting career averages.

Sorry to nitpick but the Caps didn't win the East last year, they were the first seed in the East heading into the playoffs. Boston won the East and they get to hang that Eastern Conf Champs banner.

For the record, I was using extreme sarcasm. I do not actually believe they need career years for the team to be successful.

Ovechkin (252), Backstrom (230), Knub...

I think the offeseason moves are all but over, I'm still holding on to hope for Hannan but its unlikely since we are 1 of 2 teams still over the cap.

What are u trying to say? Cuz I think Hannan would be great on the third pair with wideman. That would also allow us to trade Schultz for a pick/prospect and clear some cap space.

Hammer-green
Alzner-Carlson
Hannan-wideman
Erskine

Orlov= injury call up


Looks great to me

Red flag? Not sure what you mean.

Hannan's a reliable defenseman, but he doesn't put up offensive numbers, is not big in size and not a physical presence when on ice, all elements or factors that contribute to the price tag of a defenseman in the NHL these days.

Hannan's a boring defenseman which is just what the Capitals need. He plays his position with inteligence, does not take risks, and is positionally sound. The only things that Jeff Schultz has over Hannan is size and he's what 5 years younger.

That Hannan remains unsigned at this time suggests that he and his agent were looking at term (probably a minimum of 4 years as he's 32 I believe) along with salary (had been making what 4.5 so probably was looking for between 3 and 3.5). Obviously he and his agent over valued him. They have to realize that they are not going to get the length of contract that they want so they have to focus on salary and probably realize they may have to wait until a team's need (defenseman gets injured) increases Hannan's value. Still hoping that Hannan does a Vokoun move with the Caps, that is goes for a short term deal say 2 years at Schultz's salary 2.85with the idea he stands the best chance of winning a cup here with the Caps. Then just send Schultz off to the Islanders.

the main thing that i am saying is that it appears that league in general thinks hannan is no longer a top 4 defenseman. their belief that he is anything more than a marginal nhl defenseman beyond that appears in question.

if thats the case, schultz out to fit hannan in may not be a smart move.

at this point your read that hannan priced himself out of the market holds water only if he is also not willing to play for
what colin white took. my view is that is about all that is out there from here out. i think its even money that he doesnt
have a deal by the start of training camp.

hannan's agent recently slammed the door hard on a return to the caps as any kind of option.

personally i have no problem keeping hannan and moving schultz. that said, the longer hannan remains unemployed the more i think keeping him is less of a solid move. it certainly appears to me that the caps see schultz as a multi year player that will continue to improve and hannan as a year to year player at best

I predict that if they're all in great shape, stay mostly healthy and play each game like professionals they'll all have career years and win the President's again.

But that's a big ****ing "if".

even if they play each game like professionals there are going to be ugly games. detroit plays 10-15 ugly games a season.

they win a presidents again and that does what for you? no offense meant. not trying to start anything.

just seems to me that any conversation where winning a presidents comes up is just going to start a fight here

I am sure this has been discussed already, but I am really getting tired of reading quotes like this:

“Last year — this never got out — but he (Schultz) had an illness all summer long, so there was no training for him,” Boudreau said.

No more excuses.
