On the Corvo trade, Osala is a player who still is only playing in the AHL for the Canes and Pothier who isn't even in the league this year and is playing in the Swiss National League for Geneve Servette. So really we trade a 2nd round pick (a year away) for a guy who while he didn't work he is one of the key guys for the Canes again this year and is one of the reasons why they are no in the playoffs. Pothier was part of the deal to even out the Cap hit and Osala was a guy who was never going to play for the Caps because of who we have now and who we having coming up. Who knows if the second round pick will even mean anything. Looking back you can aways say oh yeah that trade was bad but we needed a D and we got one with experience to boot. It didn't work out but if anyone could see the future they would make a great GM.

GMGM should trade Poti & a 2nd round pick for a Diet Coke. If we could just find somebody to take the deal. Okay, I would trade Poti & a 1st round pick for an extra large Diet Coke.
If Ottawa wasn't so stupid with Gonchar's contract, I would suggest Poti for Gonchar but, @ 5.5 for 3 yrs...no.
I asked MP85 why he keeps tripping when he is forechecking. Do you think that one will get asked?

Corvo is a puck moving dman, and I use the term dman very loosely. Before last years trade deadline would anyone have said we need another puck moving damn?

------------

Agreed with the 2nd part of that sentence - but typically "puck-moving" implies moving the puck to your own team - not the guys wearing the other jerseys. It drives me crazy how often so-called "experts" make this mistake, and refer to a guy who looks like a flashy skater and plays D, and label the guy a "puck-mover."

And while I'm inclined to cut GMGM some slack after the way Orlov, Eakin - but first and foremost Kuznetzov, who dominated - performed in the premier junior talent in the world - throwing in a 2nd-rounder for Joe Corvo was an abomination.

even though gmgm said he got the player he targeted in corvo - i say he was aquired because green got hurt the previous year in the playoffs and was ineffective. corvo was insurance in case green ended up injured again. i saw corvo as green 'light'. he was never going to be the answer to the defensive woes from last year. i think the caps would have done better if corvo had been a healthy scratch every game in the playoffs.

Whatever has to be done to sign Hendricks should be done.

bradley should be asked:
has anyone you've fought ever asked you to not bleed all over them?

Posted by: Capt_Kirk_in_AZ | February 8, 2011 6:02 PM | Report abuse

Totally agreed about Hendricks. And while Bradley might not be the most talented fighter, at least he always sticks up for his teammates [not naming names, but looking right atcha 55].

Word out of Pittsburgh is Shero has approached the Canes about a blockbuster deal involving Eric Staal coming to the Pens since Malkin(and his $)are off the books for the better part of a year.
Apparently looking for someone to pick up some offensive slack due to the length of time Malkin is gone.
Could just be a rumor but Shero has shown he's willing to make big moves.
As a Pens' fan I would love it.
