|Tim Thomas and Carey Price sure are having bounceback seasons! But you've got the right idea here, thinking of selling high. If you can get a very good return for Thomas, he is worth trading, but not for some mediocre forward, of course. I don't doubt that Thomas will continue to have a fine season, but I completely agree with you that the eventual timeshare is at best an unknown.
Nice passing play there and Jesse Joensuu, of all players, puts the Islanders ahead 1-0. (Timo Seppa (Hockey))
|2010-09-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)||Sorry clog your queue with Caps questions, but I have to ask: what are your thoughts about the Caps goalie situation going into the year? Will they have to trade for a netminder at the deadline? Thanks for the chat.|

|To add to what I said earlier, Washington is clearly hopeful regarding the prospects of Semyon Varlamov (.909 projected save percentage) and Michal Neuwirth (.910 projected save percentage) between the pipes. The Caps certainly should look to bring in a Tomas Vokoun, Tim Thomas or Chris Mason before the trading deadline unless one or both of these youngsters are playing lights out. Seeing that they haven't done so in the past, I'm guessing that they either won't make a trade or at most, will bring in a journeyman if one of their netminders is injured. (Timo Seppa (Hockey))|

(R.J. from Washington, DC)
|As you probably know, the Blackhawks were Puck Prospectus' number one ranked team going into the season by our VUKOTA projection system. They did not disappoint, coming within a few points of the number one seed in the Western Conference. They're a really strong team. But then again, so are the Sharks, Canucks and Red Wings.
Chicago's biggest problem could have been fixed right around...March 3, 2010. Like the recently departed Capitals, their most glaring deficiency was in net. To have a top 2 or 3 team in the NHL, missing one piece, and not take a win now approach borders on incompetence. Sure, the Blackhawks have cap issues, money locked up in Cristobal Huet, and a potentially good? decent? netminder in Antti Niemi, but how would you like their chances if you could have had Tomas Vokoun or Tim Thomas in net? Can you say Stanley Cup favorite?! Throw in enough young prospects/draft picks in a swap for Huet and Vokoun or Thomas and that would have been a done deal (And it would have been even easier for the Caps to pull off, given cap space).
For now? Chicago's going to make this a long series. The Blackhawks are--repeating--a great team. Luongo is good, but can implode. This looks like 7 games, one way or the other, folks. (Timo Seppa (Hockey))
