Washington Capitals: 2010 post-season transactions

Locking down Nick will be huge for the offense for years to come. If we can address the blue line needs, a winger/center and a seasoned/proven goal tender we should be in good shape.

I would think we will be very active in the trade market after this seasons post season melt down.

Re: Washington Capitals: 2010 post-season transactions

good call on the thread.

i wouldnt mind seeing mike green go somewhere if we can get good value for him. we have enough goal scorers on the team without him.

i agree we need backstrom in the fold. he will great for us for years to come.

i was pretty upset with greens post season play but he should stay imo. he, along with a bunch of other players, just need to learn how to crank it up a few notches for post season play. semin might be a player i'd consider trading though.the caps need to add some toughness to the roster.

definately a good move to lock up nick.

yeah i like green, but i think he could be worth a whole lot to a team that needs a goal scoring defenseman. if we keep him, right on he is great.

you are right on both semin and lack of toughness. semin could be worth a pretty penny and we need someone to put some fear in the eyes of opponents. only if orakpo could skate....haha only kidding.

Re: Washington Capitals: 2010 post-season transactions

I wonder how they're going to approach the team this offseason. According to CapGeek.com it seems that they're in position to bring in a lot of talent from Hershey. Guys like Perrault and Bouchard. Maybe even Beagle. Then of course you have Neuvy and Alzner coming up full time. We know that Carlson's now a lock to make the roster.

Fehr and Flash are now young players with a bit more potential but are at the point where they are definitely NFL caliber players. They're going to most likely sign Schultz to an RFA contract. Knubble obviously stays.

The wildcards right now are the two Center/Wings in Johanson and Gustafon. Based on the recent news it seems like they're more excited about Johanson then they are Gustafon. Anyway the point is how they develop will have a pretty strong impact on the Caps offseason strategy. I wonder what their plan is on Brendon Morrison.

So with that said here's my early prediction for the Caps Lineup

Ov-Backs-Knubble
Semin-Flash-Fehr
Laich-Berlanger-Gustafon
Bradley-Steckle-Chimera

Schultz-Green
Alzner-Carlson
Sloan-Poti

Varly
Neuvy

And to those wondering apparently Berlanger is the only trade deadline player they plan on resigning.

Re: Washington Capitals: 2010 post-season transactions

looks like we are going to be young. hope that means we have the extra energy to carry through the season, as we will be lacking experience.

Looks like the Capitals might be going after Anton Volchenkov.

Re: Washington Capitals: 2010 post-season transactions

That would be great for the CAPS to beat the shit outta the pens in the winter classic.

Would be even greater if the game was to take place in DC.

Youth might be the new thing in the NHL. Look at my Wings, they have infused some youth, but still are one of the oldest teams in the league, and unfortunately, they are fading. It will be sad when their playoff streak ends sometime probably in the next few seasons. Once Nick and Thomas retire it just might be lights out. Also, look at the young Blackhawks. They are inexperienced, but are the hottest team right now. All the Caps need are a couple solid defensemen that are true defensemen and they will be sweet.

Re: Washington Capitals: 2010 post-season transactions

Capitals' will sign a center
12:05
PM ET
Washington Capitals Top Email

The Washington Capitals have their top-line center role taken care of, as they signed Nicklas Backstrom to a 10-year extension recently. But they'll likely look to fill the second-line center role this offseason in free agency.

The top centers on the market are Patrick Marleau and Tomas Plekanec, but it's very unlikely the Caps go after those guys. As CSN's Corey Masisak writes, the best fit might be Matthew Lombardi, who "has the wheels to keep up with Laich and Semin."

Another option is New York Rangers' vet Vaclav Prospal, but it's tough to project how much money he'll demands because he made just $1.1 million with the Rangers this season after being bought out by the Lightning while he was on a $3.5 million year. So he'll command more than that $1.1 million, but Masisak writes ,"how much will determine if Washington could become a possible destination."

The last option is retaining either Brendan Morrison or Eric Belanger, but the Caps do want to upgrade from those two. So this may be their last option.

A lot of this will come down to money, because there's buzz that the Caps will sign defenseman Anton Volchenkov on July 1 for about $5 million a year. That would significantly cut down on their center options.
