  2. Activation: The Washington Capitals activate William Lagesson and assign him to the AHL. Activation: The Washington Capitals activate Ryan Ellis and place him on The NHL roster.
  3. First off, we wish Kyle Turris the best moving forward. Along with Chris Kreider this man has been a major part of our organization for almost 11 seasons. One of the first trades I made as GM of Washington was before the 2010 draft when I traded Ivan Vishnevskiy along with a couple draft picks in exchange for Kyle Turris and Thomas Greiss. Turris had a really great career in Washington and played a major role. He's our franchises all time leading center in almost every statistical category. He was constantly a dependable player up the middle for us that had some really nice offensi
  4. Report: Matt Murray available for cheap as Washington looks to move forward without him.

  9. Rumour: Trade discussions are heating up in Washington as the team is loaded with depth and may need to create a couple roster spots. Names being discussed will not be publicly announced but feel free to inquire within
  10. Also welcome @Devron44 and any other new GMs if I missed the announcement
  11. I think you showed great patience, drafted really well and remained active throughout your entire tenure. Sad to see you go but kudos on a job well done.
  12. Rumour: The Capitals are actively shopping Matt Murray as they look for a goalie that better fits their win now mentality.
  13. Activation: The Washington Capitals activate Matt Grzelcyk and place him on the NHL roster. This move is made legal pending the IR placement of Ryan Ellis
  14. I just want to point out hes never missed a single game. In fact one season he got traded from phx to nyr and played 84 games
  15. I came in after year 1. I inherited: Semin - Ribeiro - Elias Huselius - Berglund - Boedker Tootoo - ---------- - Carrillo Boll - -------- Ryan Vesce Yandle - Hamrlik Aucoin- Hunwick M. Stuart - Vishnevskiy Kiprusoff I can't remember who else lol
  16. When I stated my opinion (not sure if you got a chance to read it amidst all the chaos) it was for discussion purposes. In no way was I trying to start an uproar or push any GM's in the direction of quitting. As a long termed GM not part of the executive team I just wanted to give voice to the members that may not have spoken up on their own and because I though the timing of the rule change (regardless of the rule change) was unjust to the teams that have built according to the rules currently in place. I was under the wrong impression of what the rule change was and I
  17. My team's fine Crabby. It's the teams that are in true need of top end young talent that are suffering here.
  18. I totally understand the leagues desire to create parity in the league. I think that rule changes that force all teams to ice competent rosters could create a more competitive and realistic league. I can assure you that I love seeing bottom tier teams hire active GM's who ice competitive rosters as much as anyone. With that being said making a rule change of this magnitude mid season is TOTAL BUSH LEAGUE in my honest opinion. I know I just acquired a lottery pick so my opinion may seem like it is coming from a bias place but that is surely not the case. When I suggested changes to
  19. Lines: Olofsson - Kuznetsov- Laine Verhaeghe - Kadri - Nylander Copp - Wennberg - Killorn Calvert - Dowd - Comeau Engvall Turris Toews - Klingberg Hronek - Ellis Yandle - Oleksiak Gudas Murray/Koskinen IR: Kassian, Grzelcyk
  20. Thank you to @AndreLePlum for the negotiations. Chris Kreider spent his entire career in Washington and it is sad to see a player that has committed so much to the organization go. He currently stands 2nd in all time goals with the franchise and will bring great leadership to Anaheim. We welcome Matt Calvert who we are hoping gels nicely on to our team in a bottom 6 role this season. As per the added 1st round pick, it is available for trade if the right deal comes along but we are also very comfortable keeping and using the pick. Once again, all
  21. What's going on? why is the trade deadline so early this season?
  22. Report: The Washington Capitals are shopping Matt Murray and teams interested should inquire sooner rather than later.
  23. Pending the IR announcement of Matt Grzelcyk Re-call: The Washington Capitals re-call Pierre Engvall and place him on the NHL roster.
  24. Thanks to both @Sludge and @Crabby for working with me to make this trade and for their commitment to the CDCGML. It's great to see GM's with long term vision actively improving their team; though Toronto should probably put in an effort to ice an NHL roster . When Chicago approached us regarding Hagel we weren't looking to shop him. We regularly develop our talent and had a lot of optimism with regards to Hagel's development. Chicago identified him as a piece that they wanted to build around and the reality of the situation was that Hagel was likely to bounce back and forth from t
  25. Assignment: The Washington Capitals assign Pierre Engvall to the AHL.
