Anyways, I don't think our problems lie in the loss (if you can say that) of Semin or the addition of a Wolski/Krabb. As others have mentioned, its consistency. Three different coaches with three different philosophies. Losing some gritty players over the years hurt I believe as well. It also doesn't help when your two best players in pay roll aren't playing well and your treasured young defenders appear lost.
The good news is they'll get better. Hell, you can only go up from here.
we went over the Ribeiro angle already!
What I am saying is that Ribiero instead of Semin is a lateral move at best.
What many of us were saying (aside from get that bum off the team) is get the man a Center so he isn't the only player on his line. We got him a center, but now we have nobody for that center to pass it to.
We have the WR's and RB's but no QB. We have the QB but no defense. We have the Center but not the RW.
Unless we're the Tampa Bay of the NHL and have all this cap room I haven't heard of, what better replacement could we have had at RW? Would we have been able to acquire a decent C as well then?

The problem with GMGM is that he constantly overvalues our young talent and has repeatedly shown that he is afraid to make the big trade.
We want to make chocolate chip cookies.
Last year we had eggs, milk, and chocolate chips... but no flour...
This year we have flour, eggs, and milk... but no chocolate chips...
I'm actually a damn good cook, and I know that this isn't even a recipe, but I think it's illustrating the overall point.
I realize I'm not a Caps fan, but...
Ribiero has won just 35.4% of his draw attempts at the dot.
I love Cody Hodgson on Buffalo, and I thought he was bad when he was sitting at 39%. (He's now MUCH better... 42% /end tongue in cheek)
Beagle has done a nice job for you guys, he's sitting at 55%. Impressive.

Neuvy back in net tonight. Hoping Phil Kessel doesn't end his goal drought tonight.
