This is good news for the capitals… i have no idea how they keep convincing semin to agree to only 1 year deals, but good for them.

Hopefully it means we’re shipping his lazy out at the deadline but I doubt it. This team needs major changes starting with the coach and GM

No really, for Semin?  How can the Caps afford this?

Thats Datsyuk money. Me thinks one is a far better deal that the other.

Yeah, I agree.  Do you think the Kenny could convince McPhee to make the trade?

Good call, Garth.  The Red Wings could really use a defensive zone loafer who disappears at clutch time for a one-year contract.

Want to trade Lidstrom for Green too while we’re at it or are you done?

You’re kidding, right?  We’re talking about 2 guys that typically put up similar ppg numbers, but 1 of which is arguably the best defensive forward in the game and is hardly ever injured (save for this broken wrist), while the other is always injured and doesn’t play any defense at all.

They wouldn’t go for that unless Lidstrom signs an extension beforehand.

You’re kidding, right?

Yep.

Sorry for the misunderstanding; just when a person spends as long doing what Garth does, it becomes hard to tell when he’s being serious about a ridiculous trade proposal.

But HA!  you said panties.

You mean bitching about Datsyuk and constantly calling for him to be traded?

See?  This is what makes it so hard to get to know the real Garth.

Why the walls, pal?

I mean, this is a little joke on me because of the fact that you didn’t get my joke, right?
