    It wouldn't surprise me one bit if Boyd is the player to go. He has shown offensive potential and Caps don't have a roster spot for him. He is at that age when you gotta either play him or let him go.

    I could easily see a team like Ottawa using him as a cheap 2nd line offensive center.

    It will always be hard for me to imagine us trading a young guy like Stephenson that did contribute meaningful minutes last season during our cup run. I have his jersey, and while he's having a rough season, I still think he has the potential to be a great 2 way player. There were times last year in our regular season where he looked like the only guy on the ice who gave a ****. He would hoof it from the offensive zone to play defense on breakaways. I'm hoping this is a sophomore slump.


    Also in that same vain I saw people on RMNB campaigning to trade Kuzy for Panarin. Christ, talk about a what have you done for me lately crowd. Kuznetsov was arguably the actual Conn Smythe winner last season, to bounce him for a guy who has never been past the first round is such a massive over reaction.

    Caps shouldn't trade anyone except maybe Bura. They have problem with structure and not with the lack of effort or talent.

    Also might I add a guy like Stephenson's value is likely no where near what his actual upside is. He's a 24 year old 3rd round pick on a very friendly contract who has a career high 18 points and plays bottom 6 hockey. Most teams are probably not giving us a ton for him, but we all know that if he was to actually play to his ability he's an absolute steal of a player.

    The puck should have been visible to the ref before Nicky put it in, but he whistled anyway. Still plenty of time to get the PPG.
