A Couple of (Minor) Signings

Are you sitting down?

The Caps have signed minor leaguers Graham Mink, a 29-year-old right wing, and Tyler Sloan, a 27-year-old defenseman. Mink, if you remember, was a key player in the Bears' 2006 Calder Cup run.

So first we hear gmgm say he's happy with the goaltending and lets Bryzgalov go to Phoenix, then, Huet "falls into their lap" at the trade deadline. "We had no other interest in obtaining a Goaltender, but couldn't pass up that opportunity." Now, gmgm is saying he was interested and took a shot in getting Theodore at the trade deadline. Which story do you believe? The story behind door number one, door number two or three? Either way, you have to say passing on Bryzgalov was a huge mistake. And for all of the Olie bashers saying he ran out of town whining, look at how gmgm handles things. This illustrates how short minded this gmgm is. Olie provided the facts of the situation. Gmgm provides stories to cover his trail and justify his existence. Now think of this, explain the situation to Kolzig (accepted back up role at $1.5) and pick up Bryzgalov (btw, signed for 3 yr 4.25/yr). You transition your old number 1 to the new #1, who is better than either French GT you've had and is the perfect Russian goaltending mentor for your young Russian up and comer. That is if your young Russian decides to leave Russia. Theodore will crumble like he did in the playoffs.
One another note, looking at the roster for the prospect camp where is Gustafsson and Finley? Why isn't the #1 pick that gmgm moved up to get at camp, is it his back? Finley had an impressive showing last camp where is he this year? Did Sasha Pokulok steal his spot?
I say door number two will be the spin of the day. Chief, which door do you pick?

I have to admit that I'd be amused if the Caps were in the Sundin running, much like the Theodore deal: if they can't get Fedorov, they bring in another veteran of super high stature.

C'mon Fedorov! And Laich, Fehr, Gordon, and Morissonn!

Wait a second....Isn't it true that if Alzner is in Hershey, he salary does not go against out cap because it is an entry level deal? Also I believe that Pothier is all but finished. If the man can't walk and chew gum at the same time a year after his hit, he is done. That is 2.5 plus 1.5 so another 4 million making it 11 m.

Am I doing this right ya'll?

In defense of Theodore, I actually did watch one or two of the Avalanche/Red Wings series, and he didn't play badly. He wasn't great, but not bad.

Unfortunately, though, I think a lot of it was that Detroit just made Colorado look silly, and Theodore's performance was a direct consequence of having way over-matched D in front of him.

Wow, I go away for a while and come back today to bedlam.

On the JT/Huet saga. Seems to me GMGM did the best he could with the hand he was dealt. Lets at least give JT a few games to prove himself. As was mentioned yesterday, BB (officially the leagues best coach) is ideal to get the best out of him.

The award for the best post of yesterday goes to Sombrero Man for his Ghostbusters script at 3:42. Ecellent work SM.

It would be nice to get a definite figure of how much cap space we have to play with. So many different figures knocking about. Anyone really know?

One last point. Everyone is talking about Varmolov and Neuvirth being two years away yet they are only 9 and 8 months younger respectively than Carey Price. Therefore Price was virtually the same age as these two would be at the start of next season when he broke into the Habs lineup. Is it too much of a stretch to think one of these could be backing up JT from the start of the season. The other would start in Hershey. That would mean Johnson could be traded to help bring in a D man.

Thoughts?

@Kool-Aid

What do you expect? Is McPhee supposed to say "Ok world, here's what we want to do, we want to sign a goalie, and we want to sign this guy, and our long term plan is this..." He's a GM, not a PR guy. He wouldn't be doing his job if he revealed his plans to the entire world. Obviously there were things he wanted and didn't get and plans are always subject to change.

Would I be happier with Huet? Probably. But, I would not be happy if he signed the same contract he signed in Chicago here in Washington, because 3 years from now, he's a 35 year old goalie and who knows what he'll be like, and they just have to eat that 5 mil. Also, if they dragged their feet on Theodore, then we're left with either Brent Johnson, or maybe Emery if we're lucky because everyone else would have been signed.

Goalies are completely unpredictable. It could have gone either way with Bryzgalov, you can't just sit here with 20/20 hindsight and say if we had done this or done that, it doesn't work that way.

@JSchon

(from last thread)

Alex deserves more than Crosby, 5.25 for Green is too much 2.5 for Laich would be too much, we still need a good D-man if we want to get closer to the SC (even if that means bye bye to Laich and Fed), waiting for our current D to get the necessary experience might take too long.

All those are my opinions only, sorry if they offend you somehow, but I'm not going to stop writing what I think. I humbly admit however that I lack the hockey knowledge of most bloggers here.

Danny

To elongate your "goalies are unpredictable" comment.

I 100% agree. Most goalies come in the form of Jim Carey, Marty Gerber, Patrick Lalime, not Marty Brodeur, Mike Richter, Belfour or Pat Roy. Since goalies have mattered (early-mid 90s) we have seen only a fistful of goalies that have stood the test of time and put more than 2-3 consecutive good years together. They are not easy to find, and not easy to rely on to be good for more than 2-3 years. By the time you can identify one that will be around for a while, they are so entrenched in their current team that prying them away is nearly impossible.

This year's FA Goalie crop was very thin. We have to live with that. We have to live with JT as our starter. Which mold does he fit? Probably not the rare Brodeur mold.

He's not a shut down, steal a game goaltender. He plays as his D plays in front and I think most agree the Caps do not have a shut down defense. If the Caps continue with a run and gun style of play, it will be a long year of exciting loses.

Danny,
Bryzgalov was known at the time and is to this day a great goaltender. Passing on him was a mistake and has never been answered. And yes it's in the past now. I don't mind passing on Huet with that deal. Huet contract is ridiculous. My point is this if gmgm didn't pass on Bryzgalov and alienate Kolzig at the end, the Caps could have gotten a better player for the money. When Kolzig left, Huet demanded more, and the Caps are now paying for it now with Theodore. 4.5 for José is too much.

Posted by: Not Drinking the front office Kool-Aid | July 2, 2008 11:41 AM | Report abuse

Huet is French. Theodore is French-*Canadian. That's an upgrade for the Caps.
2 years 4.5 suits Caps situation better than 4 years 5.6. The difference pays 40% of Fedorov's salary--and Fedorov makes Theodore better.
Goldang fantasy leagues have clouded the minds of too many. See you at the Booth!

Posted by: redlineblue | July 2, 2008 11:44 AM | Report abuse

@Kool-Aid

All I care about is his ability to control rebounds. That was thing I noticed the most when we brought in Huet was the way he could direct things off to the side, where Kolzig was really slowing down in that department.

As far as a Shut Down goalie..where were we gonna get that from anyway? I wouldn't call Huet a shut down goalie either.

It is what it is, and out of Kolzig, Johnson, Huet, Theodore, Ellis (not moving), Emery..etc.. having Theodore for 2 is fine with me. It could of been worse.

Posted by: SA-Town | July 2, 2008 11:48 AM | Report abuse

I can't believe people are still talking about Bryzgalov.

Phoenix was in the exact same playoff hunt position the Caps were in and fizzled down the stretch. Caps won the southeast by bringing in Huet who put up insane numbers.

Its easy to play the hindsight game.

Unlike other teams, the Caps are not throwing ridiculous numbers that will have them paying 5+ mil for 38-40 year olds in a few years time. They have solid prospects to fill in gaps if players leave over time. They have a financial structure in place to compete for many years centered around the MVP of the league.

But wait! They didn't pick up a mid-tier goalie on waivers! Get over it already.

Posted by: Stormblue | July 2, 2008 11:50 AM | Report abuse

Because Bryzgalov really did a bangup job of leading the Coyotes to victory last year. Oh, wait... they didn't even make the playoffs.

His numbers weren't far from Huet and Theodore's numbers. He was better playing in front of Anaheim's defense, but that defense could make Kolzig look like the second coming of Terry Sawchuck. Ilya's a good goalie, but you talk as though we missed a shot of Hasek in his prime. He wouldn't have changed the fact that Glen Hanlon was behind the bench, and it still would have left us with three goaltenders... I'll take a couple months of that drama over a whole season of that drama any day of the week.

I think it's funny how people are knocking on JT before he has even put on a Caps jersey.

Each player has a place on a team... some do better than others in certain situations. If Bryz was THAT good, he would have never been on waivers in the first place. You don't see JT on waivers, do you. So, maybe JT will have another awesome season - who knows? WHY, because the season hasn't even fricken started.

@828

Detroit spends 20M/year on 4 defencemen. Lidstrom 7M is not exactly small money. However you're right, I would not complain about those numbers. Especially since it's multiple SC rings type of performance.

Posted by: mauree | July 2, 2008 12:00 PM | Report abuse

Regarding Bryz, at the time (and currently) he was a barely above .500 career goaltender, i think he was 24-20 going into this season. His career save % was right around .908 going into this season. People act like we passed up on the second coming of Patrick Roy because he had a solid season for the Yotes. Its hindsight talking. Sure it would be nice to have him, but he wasn't exactly a proved commodity at the time he was WAIVED.

Posted by: Sombrero Guy | July 2, 2008 12:01 PM | Report abuse

Correction
Bryz is now 52-45-12 for his career. 7 games over .500, so to say he is BARELY a .500 goalie might be a bit of an exageration.

1) Do I resent some deals made in the past 5 years? You bet. But the knee-jerk abuse I'm finding on this blog for Uncle Ted and his right hand man is stale. Dear cheefe-sheep: stop. If "GMGM sucks" is the most nuanced opinion you have, you should post less and read more. We're lucky to have good ownership. I trust their judgment. At least Ted didn't hire that idiot Tallon they have in Chicago.

Passing on Bryzgalov (who is a top ten goalie talent wise: 2.43 and .921 behind PHO's comedy defense is exceptional)and moving for Theodore is bare naked evidence that until yesterday mgmt was committed to Huet. Enough.

2) @Dave UK
I dont think it's fair to use Carey Price as a measuring stick for our developing goalies. Price is clearly an extraordinary talent. At this stage anyway that's how it looks. Varlamov and Neuvirth are going to take as long as they take. Likely a matter of years. If ever.
