It also wouldn't hurt if Uncle Euge came out with a legit apology and admitted that he's at least partially at fault for the current state of the franchise. We all know that ain't happening though.
If the team were sold tomorrow, I'd buy up a bunch of tickets ASAP.
That’s some nifty cap management. Did Orpik even pack a single box?tim1_2 wrote:How about Brooks Orpik? Traded from the Caps to the Avs a month ago, bought out of his $4.5M contract (meaning he'll get $1.5M this year and next), and then resigns with the Caps yesterday to a $1M + $500K contract. Should break even in the end....

Well, at least we can evaluate his body of work. Was it good? Depending on who you think runs the show on what. The line between president and GM can get pretty blurry at times.
Apart from a few prospects it’s hard to say that Van has done a good job at rebuilding.

Yeah. I’m hoping for that scenario too.DefenceWinsChampionships wrote:wprager wrote:Wow, there's just nothing going on. Almost 2 weeks to go before Tkachuk announced whether he'll sign with the Senators or not (if he does, that rules out going back to college).
He's going back to college or the AHL. I think he's best off in the AHL personally with a call-up toward the end of the year. Let him develop some chemistry on a line with Brown and Batherson. Have all three of them start in the NHL together next season. I also think Wolanin is better off starting off in the AHL too QBing the powerplay and paired with Jaros on a regular shift.
That’s not true. Top picks don’t have to start in the NHL. Dubois didn’t and he’s looking like he’ll be a legit number1C. Why would you want him in this mess on Ottawa? Him being in Ottawa is my least favourite choice.wprager wrote:Top 4 pick. Screw it, he starts in Ottawa. Anything else means we made the wrong pick.
