Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post writes …. Five possible trade chips for the Capitals
Brian McNally of the The Washington Times reports that Mike Green may be reaching a ‘game over’ situation.
Ovechkin indicates that it is not the coaching, You have to put it on players. It doesn’t matter what system you’re going to play.
Many players could be shuffling out of Buffalo, including defensemen Christian Ehrhoff and Tyler Myers and forwards Chris Stewart and Drew Stafford.
Capitals GM George McPhee is in the last year of his contract, so this season’s outcome could decide his future in Washington. Jaroslav Halak did his part by winning his first game since arriving from Buffalo in a trade.
Dustin Penner has been traded from the Anaheim Ducks to the Washington Capitals.
The 31-year-old forward has 13 goals and 19 assists in 49 games for the Ducks this season.
Capitals GM George McPhee could be extremely busy over the next 10 days, and he’s believed to be looking to make several moves by the March 5 trade deadline.
The Capitals have been linked to Buffalo Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller, who is expected to be traded by the deadline.
It feels like it’s time to break up the nucleus, to shake up a roster with just three players not under contract for next season. It can only happen through a substantial trade, and that is why it is time for Mike Green to go.
The Capitals have lost seven of their last nine games and could be out of a playoff spot by the time they play again Thursday night in TampaBay.
They have two players – goaltender Michael Neuvirth and forward Marty Erat – who want a change of scenery, and three goalies trying to share one net.
With all that in mind, is now the time for the Caps to make a deal?
Michal Neuvirth [2-3-1, 2.83, .912], whose agent has requested a trade, has not played since Nov. 22.
So, are the Caps ready to make this a long-term commitment to Grubauer, who is 5-2-2 with a 2.02 goals-against average and .938 save percentage?
