      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

Wow! Solid deal for the caps. Keep that core together. 

 

He would have gotten more on the market.

Cap going up. That’s a fair contract for what he brings. Caps remain competitive.

Good deal for both sides.. I thought he'd get 8.25 to 8.5 per.... 

 

Led the league in scoring by Dman last year..  plays PP amd PK.....logs 25 mins per night...  great player....

 

Now Caps need to get Kempny done at around 3 mill and they have their top pairing unit back.. 

 

After that they have some RFAs Pelly and Wilson to do.... Caps look good next year again

Orpik was dealt to Colorado in addition to Grubauer during round 1 of the draft on Friday.

He meant that now the Capitals just need to wait for the Avs to buy out Orpik. He was placed on waivers yesterday.

Nothing unexpected, would've gotten more in FA.  Although I think he will go a bit stale in 3-4 years.

 

Caps had to pay the price after the season he just had.

Ya that's why he's saying orpik needs to be bought out so WSH can bring him back... in the Grubauer trade Orpik was a cap dump...

 

COL put him on waivers and plan to buy him out. McLennan is open to bringing him back to Capitals if the money is right....

lol, isn't there a CBA clause specifically for these kinds of shenanigans?

In fact there is, straight from the NHL CBA FAQ:
 

Quote

"A team cannot reacquire a player they traded away during that season (a season being July 1 - June 30). If he is waived by his new team, then he cannot re-sign with his original team until the one-year anniversary of the trade, or until the July 1 following the end of his contract, whichever comes first. However, if a team trades a player's draft rights, they can reacquire the player during the same season."

I originally thought there was a clause not allowing this.. .. but McLennan did say he was open to resigning Orpik.. so I assumed my original thought might have been a mistake... maybe McLennan is mistaken.....

 

The CBA you quote does say "or until July 1st following his contract, which ever comes first "... which is when Orpik would be eligible.....

 

So July 1st thus year or next year.... something for lawyers I guess....

I bet the bonus schedule makes this buyout proof too. 

 

Other than Green (for offence) Tanev is much better than any RHD left on the UFA list: https://www.capfriendly.com/browse/free-agents/2019/caphit/all/defense/ufa/desc/1/right

 

I think we'll have to wait to see what Tavares decides but after that I could see TO making an offer for Tanev. They have to so something with that d group.
