Overpayment by us.

Fun fact: Raymond is outscoring Ovechkin and makes a third of his salary.

Not sure I would want Johanssen from WAS. Guy is softer than melted butter. He would only encourage other teams to beat us up.

Luongo is the second-best goalie in the league right now.

Yup, it's time for this team to start moving in a different direction in that respect. Though Forsberg is a swede, I don't think he is soft........might not be a Kassian, but I don't think he gets pushed around.

If they are in serious talks I'd be happy with Brouwer Wilson 2nd... Conditional 2nd becomes a 1st if Lu gets them to the finals

In all seriousness I think if we can get Forsberg and a 1st out of them I think Gillis would take back a cap dump to buy out in the summer.

Does Johanssen even have a point this year to go with his app. -6 rating? And isn't Orlov out with a concussion or something?

Edit: -7


Quite frankly I don't see a whole lot of sexyness on their roster aside from a few of the young players and prospects. Laich makes 4.5 million bucks and is in Europe anyway. You have Alzner and Brouwer which have appeal but aside from them, that's about it. There's also Carlson but I doubt they'd move him. While Johanssen has laid a huge egg right now, it's evident the entire Caps team is struggling anyway and not truly indicant of what he can actually bring. Orlov is playing in Hershey right now but had 19 points in 60 games for his rookie season.

The Caps need a goalie more so than the Pens.

Dare to dream about OV. Who knows, let's all remember if the great one could be traded, so could anyone else.

Lui, Ballard, Burrows, and a first would be fair IMO


yeah, no.

the thing about a trade is that it has to make sense to both sides.

we would be talking schneider, booth, tanev or something like that just to not be laughed at by washington

What's your point?

Comparing Patti to Brouwer?

One is a 2nd/3rd line winger who scores about 20 goals a year, the other is a 4th line fighter and grinder......

It seems like only a year ago that Washington had three hot goalies in Theodore, Varlamov, and Neuvirth.

Forsberg is a strong power forward according to scouts. Not your typical swede.

Not that I'm 100% sold on Johansson either, but how hard does Schroeder or Malhotra play (currently, since his eye injury), and how much fighting does the team expect from either him or Schroeder?

I see a lot of offensive upside for a guy who would be the 3C on this team. He was drafted two spots below Schroeder in 2009, and has already played in 156 regular season games and 23 playoff games.

For a downside, he is not a feisty player, willing to drop the gloves etc but as noted above, the guys he would likely be replacing aren't expected to play in this way either, He also needs some work in the faceoff circle (40 - 45% per season) and he needs some improvement in his defensive game. These are things which can be overcome with coaching and him playing in a different/better system with different/better coaches and players to support him.

The Canucks could do a lot worse... and yes, a lot better, but probably not from a trade with Washington.

G.

So is Wilson too slow or a good young power forward with upside?

Wilson, Carlsson, the best of their two goalies, and their 1st round draft pick, for,

Roberto Luongo, Ebbet, Raymond, Barker, Rodin, Sauve, and our 2nd round draft pick.

Perchance to dream.

No way we get Ovechkin. Couldn't afford him anyway.

Washington obviously needs a good goalie. Holtby and Johansson were both touted to have great skill, but both have looked horrible so far this year and with any luck Washington is fed up with them and includes them in a package for Luongo.

He has had some injuries.
One must remember that young Power Forwards are high risk high reward.

Laich would be a good fit in our lineup. Well-rounded, solid, not-so-expensive guy.

He's making Burrow's kind of money ($4.5 million per) and he hasn't gotten above the 16 goal mark for the last two seasons (while playing a full 82 games).

For what the Canucks need at the moment in a LW, Brouwer fits the bill better. Will only be making $3.6 million per, and has had comparable offensive production to Laich over the last few years.


regards,
G.

PS - Over the last two seasons Booth has scored more goals than Laich, and in fewer games.

I'll have whatever you're smoking if you think Holtby is better than Luongo. If Holtby is what the return is for Luongo, that is incredibly sad and would be such a dumb move.
