I think I'd rather retain a bit on Forsberg than take back both Hagelin and Pánik, but the futures are nothing to sneeze at. I think there's potential for a deal here.

Don't think it's smart for Washington to get in on a Forsberg type player. Besides the obvious overpayment for a guy thats never ever had a 65 point season, the finances don't add up.

Washington would have about $15M in cap space in the off-season to re-sign Ovechkin, Vrana, and Samsonov plus make additions to other areas. There's not enough money to go around when Ovechkin gets at least $10M of that space, Vrana is due for a good raise to likely $5M-$6M, and Samsonov will want a good chunk for being the teams clear starter.

On Samsonov, he won't have much leverage in RFA contract negotiations. He only has made two starts this year, and has an .868 SV% and a 3.36 GAA. My guess will be that he'll get a one year deal at around $1 - 1.5M and see how he performs with a full workload.

That being said, I agree on Forsberg. On top of money, it would just add another wrinkle to the expansion draft this offseason.

I think Samsonov's leverage is more than that. All he has to say is "who else you got in net"... Caps are screwed behind him. Vanacek isn't an NHL option at this point. Lundqvist will be a UFA. So it's Samsonov's crease to lose. I think he signs for for a 2-3 year deal around $3M as a more of a future potential kinda deal.

They just don't have the money for Forsberg

Not sure I agree that Vanecek isn't an NHL option at this point. He's putting up respectable numbers as a rookie with no preseason, no camp, and no exhibition games. He'll at least be a solid backup going forward. Samsonov has only played 28 games in his career so far, so it's not like he's a proven commodity either. Do I think he'll be better than Vanecek is? Yup. But I don't think he'll have a ton of leverage in negotiations.

Think it's a good deal for both
