    The team dominated without Ovechkin the other night. Would caps be better off without him or does his entertainment value alone make him worth keeping him?

    His goal scoring value alone makes him worth keeping.

    Never trade him but you could get #1 damn, top line forward, top prospect in return

    If we had a competent GM the value returned from trading him plus the rest of our assets could probably be enough to turn us into Chicago 2.0. Solid two-way 2C, physical complete wingers, top pairing two way Ds, you name it. Unfortunately our GM is a complete tard so we're much better off choking every year while at least having Ovechkin to electrify us during the regular season.

    and here we go...bash McPhee time again.
    anyway....this thread is based on the flyers laying an epic egg? come on. I didn't see the game but if I understand what happened...the caps went into their building. blew them up to the tune 7-0 with a freaking joel ward hat trick. then tried to fight for some respected and ended up with two guys on IR and one in the hospital. the only fight they won was the goalie fight were only one goalie was fighting. a fight where the code about not punching an opponent when he is down was repeatedly violated. then after beating that goalie with unopposed punches, they still couldn't score a goal on him.

    did I get that about right?
    this is the basis for saying the caps should trade ovechkin?

    Based on this huge 2 game sample size of some limited success (against 2 teams with a combined 6 wins) without Ovechkin it is clear to me that we should trade him. It only makes sense.

    There is absolutely no way Leonsis would sign off on trading Ovechkin at this time so it is a moot point.

    If a while down the road the Caps were really struggling and Ovechkin asked for a trade maybe but unless that happens no way the Caps deal away Ovechkin.

    Yes, let's trade the defending league MVP, our captain, and the face of the franchise because we beat the two worst teams in the EC. Troy Brouwer and Brooks Laich can surely make up the scoring!

    Mods, this ^^^ is not a sincere question. It is trash talk. Why is it left unlocked?

    1. Love the sarcasm.

    2. The only thing proven against those two teams is that the rest of the team not named Ovechkin could help out on the scoreboard a lot more than they are when he is in the lineup.

    This thread fails. His value is almost immeasurable.

    The thing a franchise also has to take into account is just how much money he's gonna bring that team. He is insanely marketable to a fanbase and will bring in an immense amount of merchandise sales.

    He'd be worth something similar to the Herschel Walker trade imo.

    Pretty good I would imagine. Only thing better than winning a Cup would be winning multiple Cups.

    At least their fans don't have to live in Edmonton.

    Non-serious thread is non-serious.

    There are three or four superstars in the NHL and one of them plays for the team I root for so his value to ME is immeasurable.

    That being said if the Preds offered Weber, Hornqvist and two 1st's as someone upthread suggested I would have think long and hard about it.

    Ultimately I think I would pass.
