The biggest names right now are Backes, Martinez and Nurse

Of these, Martinez a left handed D with 2yrs at 4mil is the best option for the Caps.  The guy would be our best overall D by MILES.  He also has two cups and is a proven playoff performer

SCOUTING REPORT
Is a strong, swift and well-balanced skater with two-way ability. Has solid puck-moving and passing skills, as well as defensive acumen. Usually keeps things simple and limits mistakes. Lacks consistency in terms of offensive production at the National Hockey League level. Is not overly physical, despite pretty decent size. Could stand to shoot the puck more.



The issue is, would we be able to offer enough to the Kings (ie Orlov, SeigyChrist), but more so would GMBM do it.

Karlsson (SJS) is out for the year.  So, SJS will be looking for a right handed D

I've read the Caps only have about $3M of cap space avalible,  which means they'd have to trade or wave someone if they brought in another player

I'd do a straight up trade - Dylan for Smiffy, in a heartbeat.
We lose the salary we gain a Dman.    ;)

I would do that in a second!  Unfortunately, Dylan is the chosen one and will retire in his Caps jersey....

     The only problem is that we need a right handed defenceman more than a lefty.

We need a defensive upgrade and a coaching staff upgrade.

Fair enough, but their is something to be said that Nisky and Jensen fell off the proverbial cliff when regularly paired with Orlov. While Johnny Norris has a career year while rarely being paired with him.


Given that, itís reasonable that moving and upgrading Orlov would benefit the entire D


(In all honesty, one of the reasons I want Martinez is we havenít had a Made In Detroit player since Schmidt, and Iíd love to see him and Jensen repin the FatherCity for The Caps 🤣🤣)

They need to trade Orlov before everyone else catches on that he's a dope. Jensen too.. And the longer Gudas is here, the dopier he gets as well!  :) :smirk:


 Im not sayin shit about Johnny Norris.. At least he racks up points while he sucks on D..


Kempney needs tampons since he got hurt. Sigs Im not sure about yet.. The Furvy dude they sent back is probably the best one of the bunch..  :raspberry:

Gotta bring in somebody to replace either Kempney of Jensen. They are basically the same guy.  Jenson skates a little better, but they both just get pushed around an run over and they both make a ton of mistakes.  Caps management will probably stick with Kempney longer, so Jensen is the likely one out.  Maybe Furvy can step in, but if they are thinking that, they better get him up here now and get some games in before the playoffs.

More of a sympathizer.  He was solid his whole career, until playing with Orlov. 


If he was moved away from him and was paired with Kempy, Lewington (Heh I wish), or even SeiggyChrist and was still playing this bad Iíd be right there with you.  But I most consider the  similarities of the last two that were paired with Orlov, had thier worst years.

    Sorry but I've seen Jensen play with the Wings. I never saw anything more than mediocrisy from him. His poor play is more noticeable here because our defensive system sucks. Easy to blame his partner but Jensen has definitely been the weak link on that pair. It's one mistake after another. It wouldn't be so bad if he contributed in the offensive zone.
     You mentioned Lewington. I like him. I like his physical play. I don't think he has the skill and quickness to be a regular NHL defenceman. I also like Connor Hobbs as a right handed dman but I don't think he will crack the NHL. We have a couple of lefties in Fehrevary and Alexeyev that could be solid NHL dmen.

Caps got him for trade picks. It also means someone is getting waived. Dillan is in the final year of his contract... he's a rental. I hate rentals.

I don't know anything about this guy other than the couple times I've seen him play against the Caps, is he any good??


according to this, he fits in under the cap..

so no one needs to get waived for money, but someone has to sit to make room

Think Orpik and Gudas.  Tough, strong, stay at home, no offensive upside.  Probably a good fit for a team that can't get out of it's own way in the defensive end.
