At one point in Feb, Washington had a record of 2-5-1 and Ovi had well below standards stats with 2g, 1a, 3pts in 8 games. During that time Lui was playing great and held a 3-0-2 record, 1.50gaa and a 0.930 sv%.

Fast forward 3 weeks and Washington continues to fall at 5-10-1, and Ovi scoring only 5g, 5a, 10pts in 16 games. Mean whle Lui was at his best with a 5-0-3 record, 1.44gaa and a 0.935 sv%.

What if MG pulled off a Ribeiro, Ovi and Neuvirth for Lui, Ballard, Raymond and Schroeder and a (2x) #1 draft pick?

With how Ovi is playing now and Kesler back, a couple of minor deadline deals for depth Dmen. Canucks would be heading into the playoff potentially looking like this:

Sedin – Sedin – Ovi
Kassian – Kesler - Burrows
Higgens - Ribeiro – Hansen
Weise – Lapierre – Sestito/Jokinen

Hamhuis – Garrison
Edler – Bieksa
Hannan/Redden/O’Byrne – Tanev

Schneider
Neuvirth

Would you have done it just to win a cup this year?

they'd probably laugh at us. hard. to get assets, you gotta give assets. you've only offered expendable players.

Edler and/or Kesler would have had to have been part of that mix just to make it happen.


What if the Canucks never traded Cam Neely? or if they acquired Wayne Gretzky? or drafted Anze Kopitar? pondering what ifs is pretty futile.

And it actually blows me away that this is not even the worst Luongo, Ballard, Raymond, and a 1st trade proposal I have seen on this board.

I think Luongo, Edler, Raymond and a 1st (maybe two firsts) for Ovi and Neuvirth would've been fair in mid-February and we make a seperate trade for another D man (McBain?)

And then I woke up

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

We know this to be categorically false, so you are foolish for even suggesting such a blasphemous thing.

Tacos are delicious, and that's an end of it.

The Capitals would not have traded Ovechkin anyways lol. The team, management, coaches love him, his evaluaton would be far too high for another team to meet such a price.

And again with the goaltending, and before Holtby's numbers had improved the team had made it clear they are moving forward with Holtby, why would they acquire Luongo ?

The pieces don't make any sense in moving and it would be quite the stretch to think the Canucks could have pulled off an Ovechkin trade with Luongo involved.

:shock: :sadno: :sick: :picard: YOU sir...































step away from the edge of insanity :P

@ OP: there's a thing called cap space, with Booth on the team already how would this fit? Lu and Ballard make about as much as Ovie does alone, and Ribiero's salary would push the team's over the limit. Also there's the matter of, as mentioned, quality for quantity

Do you really think this was a possibility? If so, maybe hockey isn't the right sport for you.

Sometimes I really want to meet these people that come up with these awful proposals. On one hand, I would be fine if I found out the people responsible for them were 12 year olds. On the other hand, if they were adults with a high school education, I don't know how hard I would smack my head.

I honestly don t see any scenario where a deal of this magnitude could ve become reality.
First of all Ovechkin, at his worst, is still the face of that franchise and is beloved by the fans there. McFee would ve been crucified for it.
Secondly, I don t think we have the expendable assets that would interest him to make such a deal. Every player he would want, aside from, possibly, Lou (who would have to be part of the deal to free up cap space) we need to keep this team a contender. I, personally, would not give up any one or two of the Sedins (They would go as a pair obviously), Kesler, Edler, Burrows or Hansen. Another stumbling block is all the NTCs that would have to be waived.

However that being said, it is fun to think of a top 6 of:

D.Sedin - H.Sedin - A.Burrows
A.Ovechkin - R.Kesler - J.Hansen

I would see him making a better impact with Kesler and Hansen.
But, alas, it s never gonna happen.
