re: NHL Free Agency thread - Baloo
[quote]Ovie-Kuzy-Oshie Bura-Backstrom-Williams [/quote] I looooove the idea of splitting Backs and Ovi. Oshie is a pass-first wing, so he'd play better with Ovi, while Williams is more of a physical grinder, so he'd play better with the crafty Swedes. I have high hopes for this lineup and then ha...

re: NHL Free Agency thread - Baloo
The Sabres are gonna get real good. Not yet, but they are going to start seeing their plans start to bear fruit. I'm honestly not sure what the hell the Penguins are doing. They seem to be doubling down on the whole stars 'n scrubs thing, committing over half of their cap to five players. They ar...

[quote]If he is just a line swap with Brouwer and his line is Burakovsky-Beagle-Oshie, he will slip even further into obscurity.[/quote] Ummmm... Beagle is nowhere near the Caps second line, and Brouwer played on the 2L all year. Bura didn't play all that much with Brouwer, though he bounced arou...

re: NHL Free Agency thread - Baloo
Well, you brought up disappearing in the playoffs. I was pointing out that is Brouwer's MO. In 35 playoffs games in Washington, he has has 3 G and 6 A. Oshie is 5-4-9 in 26 games over the same time period. Oshie scores more goals, gets more assits, scores more points, has better Corsi numbers, cr...

re: NHL Free Agency thread - Baloo
Oshie score 0.70 points per game, and has for pretty much his whole career. Brouwer scores 0.50 PPG. Oshie is better. Brouwer is a frustrating player. I don't dislike him as much as many Caps fan do, who blame him for everything up to and including the assasination of JFK. But Brouwer is a passen...

re: NHL Free Agency thread - Baloo
So the Caps have essentially turned Joel Ward into Justin Williams and Troy Brouwer into TJ Oshie.... It's been a good 24 hours. If they can find a taker for Brooks Laich, it will be the best offseason in Capitals history. ...

re: Martin St. Louis retires - Baloo
A true great. I was hoping he'd find one more contract, but he went out with a good run. I'm curious of Bolts fans have any bad blood towards him for the way his career ended there, though I'd bet time will eventually heal all wounds (as well as the Bolts being real good, partly because of the trade...

re: NHL Free Agency thread - Baloo
Caps sign Justin Williams for 2 years at $3.5 mil AAV. Awesome deal, even if that means Joel Ward is likely gone. Also, they are rumored to still be in on the Oshie sweepstakes. Please let it be for Brouwer and a pick. Hell, we'll throw in a prospect not named Bowey, Barber, and Vrana. ...

re: NHL Free Agency thread - Baloo
I think a humbled Semin would fit in great with the Caps. Plenty of Russians on the team, and there's an opening on the 2nd line wing... perfect for Semin. the drawback is he was let go specifically because of his attitude. Also, he has not bounced back from wrist surgery... without his wrist shot, ...

re: NHL Free Agency thread - Baloo
I doubt it. I'd love to have Semin on a 1 year, $1.5 million deal, but I think he'll go to the KHL. Besides, he doesn't fit in with the whole "culture change" thing. Semin's effort is, shall we say, inconsistent. ...

re: NHL Free Agency thread - Baloo
After giving away Kessel for a bag of magic beans, the Leafs then sign PA Parenteau for a 1 year $1.5 million deal. So, proof that their front office isn't entirely brain dead. How does the same FO make a deal that bad and then a UFA signing that smart? ...
