I know that the likelihood of Ovechkin being traded is very small, but I wonder if this deal helps our team.

To Vancouver: Alex Ovechkin, Tom Wilson, conditional pick (based on Ovie's 2013/2014 points)
To Washington: Ryan Kesler, David Booth (both when healthy)

Why: Ovechkin is a talent unlike we have seen since Bure. Is he struggling? Absolutely but a change of scenery and having the top defensive pairing focus on the Sedins could be amazing for Ovie. Tom Wilson is a good defensive prospect, who should turn out to be a stud.
Washington does not want to rebuild but they clearly aren't going anywhere right now. The big loss here is the name of Ovechkin, who puts bums in the seats. But Kesler and Booth give Washington two top six players, who will greatly help in the locker room and with a solid all around team moving forward.


To Vancouver: Stephen Weiss, Jose Theodore, 3rd round pick
To Florida: Roberto Luongo

Why: Florida is off to a terrible start, particularly in goal. Both Theodore and Clemmensen are at the bottom of the league in stats. They get a long-term goalie who wants to be there in exchange for two expiring contracts. Markstrom can do what Schneider did in a few years of training as backup then either replacing or getting traded.
Vancouver gets rid of a large long-term contract in replace of two guys on expiring contracts, with the hope that Weiss will re-sign (maybe contingent on the trade going through?). Weiss will be a perfect pass-first centerman to play with Ovechkin. Weiss replaces Kesler on our depth chart.


Sedin - Sedin - Kassian
Ovechkin - Weiss - Burrows
Higgins - Lapierre - Hansen
Raymond - Manny - Schroeder
Volpatti - Weis
(Raymond and Schroeder fit on higher lines, and are injury insurance policies. Volpatti and Weiss can play the grinder roles)

Bieksa - Hamhuis
Edler - Garrison
Tanev - Ballard

Schneider
Theodore

As much as I love Kesler, you have to admit that Ovie and Weiss is better than Kesler and Booth.

Worst proposal I have seen in a LOOOOOOONG time

2 potent offensive players who have relatively fair contracts for a player making 9.5million/year but playing like a 3-4million/year player
My 2014 Draft wishlist: 1st rd: Draisaitl, Virtanen, Scherbak. 2nd rd: Brendan Lemieux, Thatcher Demko (Goalie)

Future Canucks top 6:
Shinkaruk-Draisaitl-Scherbak
Virtanen-Horvat-Jensen

This proposal is a fail but if for some reason we did get ovy you can guarantee he would be put with the Sedins

First one is just out to lunch.

Second one is not bad. I would prefer that kind of trade.

So first of all you make a ridiculous trade proposal and then after all that stupidity you go on and think ovie would play on the second line and not with the sedins? my god...
