    I don't have to back at home to know this was going to be a shit storm in the media, but whatever...Neely and Sweeney should've done it in the off season, plain and simple.

    Trade deadline a little over a week away. Hopefully the Canucks realize they need to build towards the future and sell off some pending UFAs or other older players to stockpile some picks.

    Wow another Nucks fan. Yeah get rid of Burrows, Edler, possibly Tanev, and Miller.

    Is it just me or is Shattenkirk overpriced for a rental?

    Probably but if someone's desperate enough they're going to bite. Hope the Leafs don't waste anything on him and I'm not even a fan of the team.

    Your not a Leafs Fan ?

    Capitals were looking for a 1st/2nd Line Defenseman as potentially their final piece of the Puzzle to take a run at the Cup this season

    So, if they make it deep into the playoffs or win the cup, he is worth it
    If they get knocked out in the 1st round, not so much

    Nope, I'm a Flames fan due to family ties but I'll cheer for the Leafs since I go to their games.

    I read an article that said they see him as the final piece in the puzzle to beat the Penguins, with the Pens D core depleted they could have a point. The Deadline looks like it could be a giant bust again.

    In regards to Shatty, we gave up nothing of true value. I still feel like we hosed the Blues, regardless of whether he signs here or not (spoiler: he won't; Oshie is getting absolutely everything we have left in the cap this summer depending on what he does in the playoffs). Motherfucker has been a beast since getting here tho. Took a 2 game suspension, averaging a point a game. Powerplay is the best it's looked all season.

    We're not trying to compete with Pitt as much as we're trying to have weapons when some fan favorites conveniently disappear come playoff time and Ovi and Holtby are left dragging the team kicking and screaming in an attempt to win some god damn hockey games. And then you have half the fanbase sobbing because Brooks Laich is no longer in the league and how the Caps should pick him back up. Funny how that happens, these "fan favorites" get traded/forced out and go on to be scratched and buried in the AHL once they leave. Fucking hate this hockey team and these stupid fucking fans.

    Yeah Oshie is one of the most underrated players in the league, what skill he has.

    Oshie is fucking incredible and has far and away taken some of the pressure off of Ovi, which is exactly what he needed. I'd rather have 2 30-40 goal scorers than 1 60 goal scorer. And what people have really failed to realize over the years (Blues are my west team) is that they play very similar styles. They're both hard hitting, physical and decently fast. Oshie has the hands and the nifty goals, Ovi has the hard shot. Watching them play together has been such a treat. We really can't lose Oshie. Regardless of how the post-season goes, the Capitals are going to have a very difficult summer and some tough decisions to make.

    God damn it. We'll be lacing up our minor leaguers for a month then, cause the majority of our team is going regardless of the what the NHL says.

    I actually think it is a good thing

    It gives others a chance, and the Olympics are suppose to only feature amateur athletes anyways.

    The olympics are about the best of the best competing. No idea where you're getting "amateur athletes" from. Michael Phelps is not an amateur. Usain Bolt is not an amateur. They are the best of the best in their sports, period. This is the Olympics. It is not about "fairness" or "giving people who wouldn't be picked otherwise" a chance. It's the best in the world competing together and against each other.

    I agree with Kayla, and as a caps fan I'm just glad our owners are gonna take the common sense approach and will let these athletes compete at the highest level.

    At least it gives the other countries a fighting chance but Canada's still going to kick all your asses.
