<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Koskinen_The_Great</b></div><div>They wouldn't!

Despite the ridiculous Anderson hate here. His value is far beyond Mantha and his issues. They'd just keep Anderson, whos actually effective. The whole point of trading Anderson is getting a young asset in their window not a reclamation projection at the same age.

Already saw this draft pick trade before. Just more galaxy brain trading for trading without even knowing the draft positioning.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>nilees24</b></div><div>Well to be fair I value the cap space more than both players. Anderson's contract would disappear and Mantha has one year remaining and you'd trade him for whatever at the 2023 TDL. I don't care about both players. Plus Mantha is from MTL and on the final year of his deal, meaning he will play his best hockey on the final year of his deal and would want to get paid on his next contract after this upcoming season.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>dgibb10</b></div><div>30 yo Josh anderson at 5.5 million isn't gonna help anyone compete. too expensive to be a bottom 6 player on a contender and not good enough to be a top 6 player on a contender</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>NoVaSpartan</b></div><div>Awful deal for Washington, Mantha being moved would be to clear cap and not for a worse contract that goes for longer. Anderson is a worse asset than Mantha, and the Capitals didn't give Conor Sheary a raise from his 1.5 mil salary, so they sure as hell don't want a worse winger defensively who's putting up the same amount of points this year as Sheary.</div></div>

Awful deal for Wsh. Right now, teams (especially WSH who is still trying to contend right now) would value cap space over either player. Mantha has been beyond unpredictable and Anderson is not worth 3 more years of $5.5mil (he is a bottom 6 player straight up no other way around it - sorry for being direct). Why would the Caps trade a struggling player on an expiring contract for another inconsistent bottom 6 forward with basically the same contract but 3 more years...

Sorry you are stuck with Anderson's contract though

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>NoVaSpartan</b></div><div>TEB Mailbag notes:

Decision has not yet been made around Laviolette yet. Team may lean towards bringing him back due to: Winning when healthy, not a lot of better/more successful options, not wanting to risk ending Ovi's career with a 1st time coach without experience. Only 1st time candidate that may be an exception is Jeff Halpern, due to familiarity with the Caps and being a strong tactician.

Higher ups haven't agreed with everything Laviolette does (Mantha decisions throughout the year), but they are generally please with Laviolette over his entire tenure.

Player development is not a priority, it is taking a backseat to winning. Expect that to change this season after the Caps are mathematically (or about to be mathematically) eliminated. TEB specifically mentions Johansen.

Caps hope that Backstrom will fully return to form after an offseason of training while healthy to regain a step. No easy answers there, but seems like they expected a long road to recovery and that we're still on it.

Higher-ups are unhappy with Kuzy's season, seems that perhaps the trust management had is gone. To quote TEB, "I don't know where things go from here. But something's got to give."

Caps don't believe Iorio is fully ready, and thus extended TvR, but don't expect him to be buried in Hershey for 3 years if he shows he's ready.

Protas is probably ahead of McMichael and Lapierre in the pipeline. Doesn't sound like Washington shopped either of them, though MacLellan keeps most info close to the chest. Sounds like the team is committed to developing them but could possibly consider a trade if it was for a Strome-esque player thats young and can contribute now.

Sounds like Mantha is most likely gone. Management thought he should have had a longer leash, but aren't happy his production has gone down since being scratched.

It does sound like Johnasen has slid from being considered a prospect to a call-up, but hasn't been written off entirely yet. Tough for him since he's stuck behind so many other players though.

The Caps are likely to do something for their 50th anniversary in terms of jerseys, but likely not an overhaul of the entire jersey/logo. Something to keep an eye on, though.

Unlikely Brown returns this year but Washington is definitely interested in bringing him back.</div></div>

Thank you for this. Really appreciated

Interesting to hear the recent thoughts. I kinda agree on all points...the only thing I am hesitant on is the assessment of Lavy.

I totally agree on not a lot of better/more successful options, but some of the decisions he has made has really hurt both the team and player development/confidence. I do think fans can be too negative / knit-picky on coaches (look at Trotz before 2018 - people were calling a new coach and then 2018 hits and everyone loves him). I am not in the room (obviously), but from an outsiders perspective, it does seem like Lavy has lost the room/team. The team looks (and sounds during interviews) similar as when Reirdon was head coach, which is concerning

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>NoVaSpartan</b></div><div>I’m not a fan of Debrincat, I would much rather target a cheaper option instead of him. Not a big fan of most popular targets honestly, Boeser/Garland don’t interest me, Hall feels like too much money for someone with an exciting name, and Debrincat is too rich for my blood.

Regarding how they play, someone (I think it was Alan May but could be wrong) made a good point when talking about it, since the Caps are built to grind down speedy teams instead of getting into a track race with them. This year it’s been more faulty, with DC being goaded into track races they can’t win, but in previous years (including 2018) it has resulted in decent playoff performances (I know they didn’t win in 2019 but that was a perfect example of grinding down a speedy team). I don’t say this to say Washington shouldn’t look to get faster, but I think all the panic I see on Twitter of (Washington is so slow why can’t we just be faster) doesn’t really fit with how the team has succeeded in the past, especially come playoff time. Hell, the Caps weren’t expected to do anything last year and grinded the Presidents trophy winner down for 6 games and could have won if not for a couple individuals (looking right at John “I was literally a pylon in Game 6” Carlson).</div></div>

I couldn't agree more about Boeser/Garland and Hall. Do not want either of the three. I don't mind Debrincat, but for a certain price (price for both trade and next contract), and I will say, he has not had a great year...

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Bruinsforlife</b></div><div>Nick Paul won’t be mooved, imo overpay for orlov and bertuzzi, bertuzzi is good but too injury prone to deserve a 6 years contract, maybe some team will give him but it’s most likely that this team will regret it, and orlov will be 32 next season so I can’t see a team signing him for 6 years, imo max deal the bruins should give orlov is 5x5m</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Bruins_Guy613</b></div><div>id like orlove for 5x5 and bertuzzi for 5x5 as well but other couch gms (like myself) told me that was a pipe dream so i moved them both a bit.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>jpetes250</b></div><div>Bertuzzi was supposedly asking for $7x7 from Detroit, I could see him taking the Boston discount if he really falls in love with the team, but that would probably look like $6-$6.5x8, which is pretty risky for a guy with his play style (power-ish forward) and age. I do like keeping him over Hall, little more "sandpaper" and younger.

Orlov is easily getting $7mil in FA, especially if he keeps up his current play. He could be another one who takes the Boston discount though. Hathaway probably gets more as well, at least the same as his current contract.

Also the cap is not jumping up by $2mil, the NHL will be lucky to jump $1mil with the implosion of Bally.</div></div>

As a Caps fan, Orlov said he wants 7-8 years. Caps only wanted to give 3-4 years and that's why he was traded.

I personally would think $6x6 for Orlov is outrageous as he is 32. Max I'd give him would be $5x4 (which I assume the Caps were pushing for). He has a lot of minutes under him - I question how good he actually will be in a few years...

As far as Hathaway - too low. I expect him to get a $2.5x3 type deal on open market. Could see him taking a hometown discount though as he loves Bruins (from Maine).
