Fehr: 'I don't want to hear my phone ring'

Sorry for the late blog entry today, but I attended a meeting downtown that's left me scrambling to catch up. This morning's practice was relatively uneventful, with the exception of spare defenseman Tyler Sloan sitting out with flu-like symptoms, which Coach Bruce Boudreau suspects is going around the room.

Anyway, I'm just getting going on a story for tomorrow's Post while keeping tabs on what's happening around the league ahead of tomorrow's 3 p.m. trade deadline.

No movement to report on the Caps' front. But one Eastern Conference official confirmed to me earlier that GM George McPhee is actively seeking to bolster the Caps' blue line and add a veteran forward, preferably a scoring line a center.

I'm also told McPhee had shown interest in former Islanders' veteran Andy Sutton. But the hulking defenseman has since been traded to Ottawa for a second round pick.

McPhee did not travel with the team to Buffalo, and will instead hunker down with his pro scouts at the team's Arlington headquarters.

The mood at KCI a few hours ago was jumpy and anxious for players like Eric Fehr, who are worried they could be included in a deal and potentially miss a Stanley Cup run, and one of anticipation for core guys Alex Ovechkin, who are wondering what one of professional sports' most tight-lipped executives has up his sleeve.

"I don't want hear my phone ring," Fehr said. "That's the name of the game. It's definitely a nervous time."

Ovechkin said: "Let's talk about that tomorrow. I don't want to talk about that right now."

I'll keep you posted of any developments.

Fehr (and Flash) have got to be super nervous! Sounds like a deal is going down! Make us proud GMGM!

The news about GMGM is encouraging. I thought he was waiting for the phone to ring, but I'm glad to hear there is at least a possibility that he's actively pursuing.

Posted by: BetterOffWithFedorov | March 2, 2010 3:41 PM | Report abuse

Fehr would have to be a target of any potential trade partner. He's big, young, a former first rounder, and is having a good year.

Either way, in 24 hours from now, we'll know what the Caps will look like.

Trade Threeormore plus Fehr or Flash for Vokoun. Also, a real nasty big defenseman would be nice.

(from previous thread)

Conversely, If you're a russian player in the NHL, why go home to an inferior league, which was proven in the Olymics. I understand if you want to go home for home sake or if you're being offered a big contract, but if all things are equal, stay in the better league...and the US girls are prettier.

Posted by: jeets | March 2, 2010 3:40 PM

You could have made that same argument about the NHL in Turin after the Canadians and Americans got beat. The main difference this time is that the next winter Olympics will be held in Russia There is immense pressure to do well. I can only guess that the new national team coaches want them practicing together months before the games, something that playing in the KHL will allow.

@sgm3

i hear ya...

i dont think ovie adn the team being more defensive will hurt his game...it will simply lead to more offense for him and the team...

if were not spending time in our end...were spending time in theres...how can that be anything but good for our offense?

when i play and focus on defense first i find that leads to a lot of offense...we get the puck out and keep it out of our end...

later in the game when i get tired and maybe were down on the scoreboard...i get lazy and start cherry picking and otherwise waiting for someone to get me the puck (like i see ovie adn semin do all the time)...and all that happens is i watch my team struggle in our end...

if i recognize that and go back to defense first...the game starts to go the other way again...i see that in ovie and the rest of the caps style of play...

i got really tired of watching that rangers series last year...they controlled the puck in our end more than we did theres (not something you will see on a stat sheet)...and we were playing a lot of 5 on 5 penalty kill style hockey way too much in our end in that series...and we almost lost in the first round to a very inferrior team because of it...just standing around...

i kept screaming at the TV..."run through the guy", "put a body on him", "force him to move the puck instead of waiting for him to make a play", "quit watching and start playing the game"...

on the opposite end both the rangers and the pens were forcing action in their defensive ends...

if we do that again this year and into the future its going to continue to seriously hurt our chances of getting a cup...

do the Caps not have any 2nd round pick? all these D-men getting moved for 2nd rd picks

Posted by: heathdog1119 | March 2, 2010 4:14 PM | Report abuse

The Caps have clearly missed the mark so far. They have been VERY slow out of the gate to make a deal.

Veteran defensemen have been traded the past 2-3 days to clubs that hope to be in the postseason mix and in the cases of Pitt and Ottawa, these teams got veterans who can help them for a #2 draft pick.

On a team with this many players under 25 in the system and on the parent roster, I can't see how that is too high a price for Washington to pay.

I always had the concern that the Caps would be immobilized by their past draft successes and would perhaps fail at the critical moment when a Cup could be at stake to make the right deal for THIS SEASON because of hand-wringing over a future draft choice.

McPhee has to realize the Caps aren't going to be drafting #1, #4 or #5 again anytime soon.

A first round pick for Washington is very close to being a second rounder in any event.

See how quick the Cavaliers were to deal their pick to Washington to acquire Jamison for the stretch run in the NBA.

The Penguins seem to realize this instinctively.

They moved last year for Kunitz and Guerin to make them balanced on the wings and tougher in the corners and would not have won the Cup without them IMO.

This year they pick up a solid defenseman in Leopold for a #2 pick next year.

Not much to give up as the club once again correctly saw that their blueline was their weak point with Gill and Scuderi leaving after the Cup and Gonchar being 35 years old.

@lylewimbledon, @Lloyd

I definitely agree -- GMGM has been great, but even the acquisition of Lang couldn't turn the Jagr mistake around, so that was a pretty bad one.

Posted by: nicko | March 2, 2010 4:22 PM | Report abuse

Is the ever cautious GMGM asleep at the wheel once more? First Phaneuf slips away, now Sutton? Get the GM a drink - he's gotta loosen up as there are less than 24 hours to go to the deadline and DMen worth grabbing are being snatched right from under his nose. I hope like hell he wasn't on that plane. He needs to be here on the phone - not in air space where he can't use one.

Look, the Caps now have to deal with not only the Pens and Flyers but the Sabres and Sens - just to advance to the Finals to face a formidable Western foe. Not looking good.

The Sens were already solid, and have now added Kovalchuk and Sutton in the past few weeks.

That is flippin going for it.

George is either standing pat or going to make a cosmetic move, I'm afraird.

He continues to say he really likes his team. He also said today that the Caps could have won the Cup the past two years.

What the heck?

Ummmm, George .... you need goaltending and defense, especially since your skilled European wingers don't forecheck.

Right now, the Caps are where the Sens were a few years ago. I would feel much better if we were where the Sens are now - urgent and going for it.

Posted by: richmondphil | March 2, 2010 4:33 PM | Report abuse

In fairness to GMGM, the big mistake was not the trade for Jagr, that was a brilliant move, giving up nothing for him (probably because Pitt didn't want to face him 8 times a yr in NY). There were 2 big mistakes made after the trade; giving him the big extension and hiring Cassidy. With a known prima donna on the team they should have hired an experienced coach who knew how to handle the Jagrs of the world.

Posted by: ds_kelly | March 2, 2010 4:33 PM | Report abuse

Sutton is worth a 2nd rounder..barely. He is having a great year.

Leopold..no.

Grebeshkov is easily worth a 2nd...but he's an offense type of guy. We don't need him.

As gebster says..patience..patience..

The best rumored guys are still on the market.

Posted by: richmondphil | March 2, 2010 4:34 PM | Report abuse

We are going to see in the next 24 hours whether Washington has the killer instinct or whether the success of the past 2 years has made the club comfortable and risk-averse to change the mix.

McPhee thinks the Caps could have won the Cup the past 2 years? Really?

The Caps fell behind 3-1 to a Flyers team in 2008 that finished behind them in the standings and then couldn't close the deal in a seventh game at home.

In 2009, the Caps once again fell behind a #7 seeded Rangers team and had to win a Game 7 to advance.

Then against Pitt they were up 2-0 with the home ice advantage and once again couldn't seal the deal in a Game 7 at home.

That's progress for a team that won 20 games several years ago, but the Caps were nowhere close to winning the Cup the past 2 years.

Not enough grit and not enough poise at the right moment.

A championship team is NEVER going to lose in overtime in Game 7 at home to an inferior opponent like the Caps did to Philly when the defense allowed Daniel Briere to park himself at the side of the net and tap in an easy goal.

Ah, I feel for Fehr - and I think he has a great future in the league.

I'd say don't overpay - we do actually have a good thing going here. 3 decent lines, that's a rarity in this league.

Another thing: teams win a Stanley Cup every year - so it's rare and special, but still, it happens every year. On the other hand, teams winning 14 games in a row - that's happened only twice in the league's history. The players should be proud, and so should the fan and the teams.

I say don't give up the farm to make a run at the Cup. Carolina won the cup and now they have a crap team no one wants to support down there.

Patience is key...Caps don't need to blow a lot up...

Owen Nolan is old as dirt...not a center...will not improve the Caps. Not at all. Not a PK guy, not a PP guy, no speed. He is not on the Caps radar at all.

Barret Jackman is a possibility, but the asking price is a Flash style roster player plus a pick, not defense, as STL has prospects they'd like to bring along.

Let every other GM panic....McPhee always has a plan, a back-up plan, and an escape route...

Whatever happens...we're still a contender. Best part about tomorrow at 3pm is that we can all focus on fan mojo, rather than playing GM.

GO CAPS!

If you think it was Briere that knocked us out in Game 7 in OT two years ago, it wasn't. It was Jeffrey Lupol. And it was on a powerplay. And Huet had time to look overthe wrong shoulder, before Lupol tapped it in.

Owen Nolan is gritty, and can play both special teams. Not sure where your assessment of him comes from.
He is old, and slow, and he doesn't hit like he used to.

Ovi looks up to him as well. (Owen Nolan was his favorite NHL player growing up..Ovi's said this numerous times)

1) McPhee did not trade for Jagr. Leonsis did that.

2) I predict Flash more likely to than Fehr since keeping Fehr will save about $2-3M in salary (versus Flash) over the next two years. So, moving Flash instead of Fehr might let you re-sign Semin or get a better defenseman next year.

He is 38 years old. Whether Ovie admires him or not I think he's not the piece the Caps are looking for...

And my assessment in my opinion...Nolan has had a good NHL shelf life, but he is past the expiration date now.

From http://www.insidehockey.com/columns/6046
An unconfirmed rumor over the weekend had Florida and Washington discussing a trade involving stud D prospect John Carlson and Jose Theodore for Vokoun. While all rumors must be taken with a grain of salt, the asking price doesn't seem too far off.

The idea of dealing away a potential stud D like Carlson may be hard for Capitals fans to swallow, but think about this: Vokoun has the highest save percentage of any goaltender since the lockout. He's tied for the league lead in shutouts with seven (Martin Brodeur) and has the NHL's best save percentage this season despite playing behind a lousy team.

Vokoun is a game changer. Put him in net and the Capitals immediately become Stanley Cup favorites. He's that good.

If you want defencemen target Nashville. I don't know if they really need a scoring centre. Or who they could get who would be any better without giving up a ton. Scoring isn't really an issue for the team and Fleichmann and Morisson have been doing pretty well the past month. Dropped off a bit near the end but I don't know who they would bring in. You're not going to wrestle players like Getslaf or Marleau or Kopitar away from their teams. Maybe Vermette or Weiss? But their numbers are worse than Fleichmann's and I'd trust Morisson more in a third line role. There arne't many 'scoring centres' out there.

@leopard09 Last year when the Pens made those trades they were desperate. They had just fired their coach and were sitting on the playoff bubble. If they didn't make those moves they very well could have not been in the playoffs at all. The Caps currently are on top of the league and since getting #25 have been so much better then the rest of the east they can cruse into the top seed in the playoffs. The Caps made a move already and it was for him. Just because it wasn't at the deadline doesn't mean anything. Also the team got much better in the off season by adding Knuble. GMGM knows how to gain when the price isn't too high.

As eager as I am for GMGM to make a move, I won't be disappointed if he doesn't. Big splashes don't guarantee a Cup. Just ask the Flames how well Olli Jokinen worked out them.

The one thing the Pens and Wings had in common was the concept of team play. The Pens defense wasn't great. They had Orpik, a one-legged Gonchar, Scuderi, Gill, Eaton and Letang. Not exactly a HOF defense. The Wings lost players like Datysuk, Rafalski and Lidstrom for a number of games and still made it to game 7 of the SCF. Other guys like AHLer Abdelkader, Talbot, and Filppula were able to step up because everyone was on the same page.

It bothered me when Gabby had few mandatory practices during the Pens series. The Pens were practicing to improve their PP while the Caps were having "mental health" days. Probably not a popular opinion, but I think if the Caps fail this year, Gabby has to take a lions share of the blame.

All,

Sorry, I had one too many cold ones up on that ledge. I got the Sens and Devils mixed up in my mash-messed up mind. Well, they both wear red, right? And I guess George was here and not on that plane - Tarik said so himself. Must have missed that point in his post.

As for Phaneuf, I can't believe we weren't in the mix there. Sorry, but the Caps need to be somewhere between the organization they now are and the aggressive Skins' organization - with pros Allen and Shanahan running them - this coming weekend.

And is a 2nd for Sutton so much? The Hockey News ran an article this week suggesting 2nd rounders rarely pan out in the NHL.

That said, the Vokoun rumors are exciting - even if we must part with the studly Carlson. And there are rumors now that Juice may be headed back here and that Jay B. of the Panthers is on the block. If George is keeping his powder dry for the big deal, and makes it, I'll promise to 'dry out' following the 3 pm deadline tomorrow.

I wouldn't want either of those guys on the team, especially with the amount of money they make. Phanuef gets this rap of being some hulking defensive d-man, but he's not. At all. He's actually very bad at positioning, and if/when he misses oneof those hits, he isn't fast enough to recover.

He's a great offensive d-man though.

D-men I want; Dan Hamhuis, Anton Volchenkov, Barrett Jackman, Pavel Kubina.

The degree of availability varies with all these guys.

I'd rather see a trade made for a 2-way PK center, to be honest.

If Alzner and Carlson were more developed, I could understand that point of view. But they aren't, and the lasting image I have in mind from the Pens' series is Sid Crosby brutalizing Green by camping in the crease and scoring goals in close. Granted, we're talking about Crosby, but having grown up with Langway and Stevens on my Caps' teams down low, I'm sickened by how our current corps of defensement seemingly shy away from contact.

I like the idea of Hamhuis but I hear he's going to Philly who will have him and Pronger. I also like Jackman, and I don't think Kubina will be traded here (he's with division foe Atlanta, no?).

@knk4jack

If the guy isn't out there, then why should you overpay for him? Our defense is what it is. If we can upgrade it, go ahead. If we can't, I don't really see why our current group can't go far in the playoffs, as long as they are willing to do the little things necessary. The Pens defense last year wasn't exactly..good.

As far as growing up with the Caps in the 80s/90s, I'm with you on that. But, we got to remember that the Caps had one of the best defensive corps in the league for a long time. Offensively and defensively. We couldn't score any goals! haha

He went straight to the top. So now we have basher battalion, troll battalion and idiot battalion. 3 battalions to a brigade? We also have the demoltion platoon, attached to brigade HQ, and that's where we send those wise folks who want to "blow up the team."

This is a trade rumor from way back on February 8th. This was found on a website maintained by Senators fans and so called analysts called Sens24. Probably close to our Japers Rink which is a relatively good site.

"I've been sent a lot of Volchenkov rumors the past month or so. But this one comes from a very close source of mine, and I feel it is very controversial. I would love to see what my readers think of this trade. I know a lot of you don't like posting, so feel free to respond to me by email like a lot of you have been doing.


To Washington:

Anton Volchenkov
Shean Donovan

To Ottawa:

Karl Alzner
Matt Bradley
Brian Pothier
Washington 2nd"

Now apparently this deal fell through because Murray was trying to push Cheechoo our way. Cheechoo cleared waivers on Valentine's Day so he's off of Ottawa's books as far as a cap hit so they probably aren't trying to peddle him now.

I know the info is old but Volchenkov HAS NOT signed even though an offer was waiting for him when he returned from the Olympics. Sutton may be a hole filler if the Sens feel they have lost Volchenkov.

@leopard09, @kn4kjack: YAY! FIRST PERSON TO MAKE A MOVE WINS THE CUP! Sunday! Sunday! Sunday! Let's all trade everything b/c that automatically makes us a better team! Right? Right.

/sarcasm

Slow down a trifle. The deadline isn't until tomorrow afternoon. Just b/c GMGM hasn't made a move yet doesn't mean he won't. This isn't a case of first person to the NHL office with paperwork in hand wins the Cup. I'd rather make the right deal than just any deal to deal. McPhee isn't always conservative - dealing your captain midseason when the team is going great guns is not a conservative move. It's not over yet.

Hamhuis - Last I heard, the Preds will probably keep him. Hamhuis to the Flyers fell through; they need to deal for a goalie with Emery done for the season (and possibly for good). There's a part of me that thinks happy Coburn for a pick and one of Varly, Neuvirth, or Holtby thoughts.

I don't have Army's numbers but you're right he's a high energy guy - lots of grit. The only knock on him is he was cindy's best pal when he was with the Penguins!

I threw in Slava as a sentimental favorite. He could be this year's "Fedorov." Also, he's money in the SO, 60% + success. He's around 3.5 mil, though...

Armstrong is 2.4 for this year and UFA at year end. He would be good for this year and beyond. If I moved a forward to get a defenseman for the stretch, Armstrong wouldn't be a bad back-fill for next year. His numbers are down some this year, but overall he's kind of a middle class man's Matt Bradley. Would be a good linemate to Chimera. I'm not sure he's really the best we need since we are short at center. But, if you ever wanted to make a checking line, he's a candidate.

Bradley is a great energy guy with above average hands.

The Caps might move Alzner but won't move Carlson. There is no way Vokoun is coming here. We will have cap trouble trying to sign other players if we have another $5 million goalie. Flash only leaves if we get a good faceoff centre in return. Flash was one of the reasons the team did not miss a beat when OV was injured early in season. Would miss his versatility....Most teams trade for depth if they are buyers at the deadline. One of the reasons the Caps have 90 points already is depth....I like that so NO DEAL wouldn't upset me. Last season injury and fatigue did us in not bad defence or goaltending. We played 14 freakin games and only were exposed in one..the final one when the team limped out of Verizon. This years team is already more balanced, deeper and better. One of the three goalies will get hot and the D will step up unless they are all hurt again.

True, but let's not compare Clark with Brads. Clark's price tag, age, and proneness (is that a word?) to injury were all higher than those of one Matthew Bradley.
Plus #10's favorite band is Pearl Jam- which absolutely cannot be overlook when assessing value.

If somehow it could work under the cap...then sure, but I don't see it happening. It's a pipe dream, plus it's already being reported that GMGM is not looking for a goaltender of any kind.

Also, while checking to see if Vokoun was a pending free agent, I realized the Cats are still paying Jozef Stumpel 750,000$. lol.

You gotta love Brads aka The Bradley Fighting Vehicle (for his namesake five-star gen'l Omar Bradley). Brads at $1M is, really, one of the best values in the league. It's like if all your neighbors have big expensive tv's that were 2-3000 apiece and then you got one used that's just a little smaller and still has most of the same gizmos but only costs $400.

I've said this from the beginning of the year, we will make it to the Finals and GMGM will make "really good" upgrades to help us get there. Certainly don't want to guarantee a Cup but I sure feel like we're getting there again and that's better than last yr.

How can he not make a strong move? We've got more cap space than ever, we've got more assets than ever and I think he knows this team has what it takes to get there but just needs a little tweaking with a roster spot or 2.

The panic here is incredible. I'd love to play poker with some of you guys, and I'm not even a good poker player.

One way to look at the Sutton for a 2nd deal from the Caps perspective is - would you rent Sutton for this year in exchange for Orlov, last year's 2nd? I wouldn't. Now you could argue that Orlov is unproven and may never play here, or that you can't expect to get someone that good in the 2nd this year. But the Caps track record drafting has improved so dramatically that I think you have to value that pick. By comparison, think back (for other old-timers like me) to all the #1's we got for Scott Stevens, which we turned into crap.

The team is built on the idea of keeping Ovi, Backstrom, Green, and hopefully Semin long term and rotating young, cheap guys through elsewhere to keep us under the cap. You can't do that without a steady flow of picks and great scouting.

How bout this...on Versus just now they said that Pronger "was steady early" in the Olympics and "then stepped it up as the games got more meaningful."

Look, I have a confession, ok...I drink. Yes, I drink. Every night or sometimes in the day (but not work days) instead of the night but very rarely during the day and night in the same day but sometimes starting at 7 am at the beach but I quit by 1:00 those days.

I say this because, well, sometimes when you drink you can forget. What was that? Just kidding there.

Anyway when you die and St. Peter says you get an extra ten free minutes and you can either have a drink or a glass of water...that's what I thought, you'll ask about the cocktail list.

Anyway, long story short, and I watched all the Olympic games I could, except the late ones when I was alseep, and I think I saw all of Canada's games, and tell me I was blind drunk I guess cuz I never saw Pronger do one meaningful thing over the two weeks.

Like, maybe they should have just put him on the slopes so the skiers could have gone around him on the slalom just like they did in the rink.

Don't mind me though cuz I've been drinking. NOW, what excuse does that guy on Versus have?

@ sgm3....

You really think GMGM would have wanted to bring Sutton in for only draft picks?

I don't think they wanted another D around so another guy has to sit out...eventually they would have to waiver somebody to send them down.

I think the right deal will be one with a live body going out at the same time. Everybody on the roster will need playing time and a role from here on out. Only Alzner, Sloan, and Carlson are eligible to be assigned.

If a deal for a D-man is made it will not be cosmetic. GMGM is not likely to send out a prospect for another D ..but he might do a 2 for 1 to upgrade because it would address roster issues. Something they tried to address in the Jurcina & Clark for Chimaera 2 for 1 deal.

Who cares if they have too many D men, then you send Sloan down to the minors and have Erskine as D man #7. You can always trade an extra D man or waive them and send them to the minors. If they are not considered good enough to be in the top 7 D men then they are disposable.

I read that Ponikarovsky to the Pens is close to being finished. If that happens it will really bother me if GMGM does nothing.

While I agree with not trading away your best prospects and all of your draft picks, teams like the Pens and Red Wings (in many prior years) seem to make deadline acquisitions every year and it doesn't seem to be hurting their longevity.

Again, I'm not saying to trade away the farm. Carlson, Varly, Neuvy, and Alzner are untoucable. But if GMGM makes no deals then he did nothing while watching his competitors improve.

I'm not making any final assessments until after the deadline but I am a strong believe that GMGM has to do something.

I am still holding out hope he will.
