  1. Congrats @Squeak I'm sure you'll do a great job!
  2. Assignment: The Washington Capitals assign Tucker Poolman to the AHL
  3. Thank you Andre for finding space for a potential future Hall of Famer. We had Marleau projected as our 13th forward and I didn't want to enter the season that way if I had the chance to find him a better playing situation. The vet will get plenty of playing time in his contract year with a reigning playoff team. We wish him the best moving forward
  4. Thank you to Jaku for the thorough negotiation. First off, Ryan Dzingel has been exceptional for us during his five seasons here in Washington and in Dover. Speed to to burn, natural finisher, instincts, tenacity. With all due respect to my other guys, I thought Dzingel was my best forward last season along with Evander Kane. We thank him greatly for being a major part of the last three exciting seasons in Washington and most definitely wish him the best moving forward. Roslo we paid heavily for last season and was hoping he could play line 2 for us this season. An all around great prospect who is ready to make a big impact. We wish him the best as well. Curtis McElhinney seems to be in the prime of his career and we are thrilled to have been able to find him such a great fit in Brooklyn. With all that being said..... Welcome Evgeny Kuznetsov! Top end talent is very tough to find, and we just got some. 6 years ago at this same time, Pavel Datsyuk left Washington after a first round playoff exit to sign with the Toronto Maple Leafs reportedly turning down a four year contract worth over 40-million dollars to stay with the Caps. Datsyuk only played one full lockout shortened season in Washington. Outside of our time with Datsyuk our top centers have been Elias, Turris, Gagner, Zetterberg and Koivu. We are very excited to FINALLY have found out top line center that can be an ultimate game-breaker for the Caps. At age 27 our hope is that Kuznetsov spends the next 10 years here in Washington. He immediately joins youngsters Laine and Nylander along with a large group of vets in pursuit of the coveted CDCGML cup!
  5. Termination: The Washington Capitals terminate the contract of Tanner Jaillet because he has signed in Germany. https://www.grizzlys.de/news_897.html
  6. Termination: The Washington Capitals terminate the contract of Einar Emmanuelsson because he has signed in Sweden. https://www.eliteprospects.com/transfer/2017/09/12/einar-emanuelsson-in-a-contract-extension-with-lulea-hf/322150
  7. Hickey is also still listed on my salary structure sheet but I traded him at the draft to St. Louis
  8. Hey Curt, I should have MTL 4th 2020 but the spreadsheets say MTL still has the pick
  9. Washington Capitals Front Office: Medical - 0 million Player Development - 0 million Player Relations - 13 million Minor League Budget - 32 million
  10. That is currently the rule but it's gotta change in my opinion.
  11. Patrick Marleau still available. 1 year @ 4.1
  12. If a manager misses the draft and doesn't submit a list (without a legit excuse) I think it means they lack commitment to the league and are not a worthy GM. The real people suffering are the committed GM's that are competing against guys that couldn't care less. I personally want league parity.
  13. Honestly, I would suggest if a team misses their pick they get "auto-drafted" a player. I hate watching building teams miss out on the most important day of the calendar.
  14. Ya, and some teams have missed top 5 picks. Long time committed GM's have even made these blunders for various reasons. Technology isn't even a sure thing depending on where some people might currently living.
  15. Hey guys, With the draft coming right up I thought maybe we could discuss what should happen if a team misses a pick. The draft is such a crucial time of year to add talent; particularly for the teams at the top of the board. Teams often miss picks for various reasons and I find it usually widens the gap between the good teams and the bad teams. What do you guys think should happen if a team misses their pick?
