We’ve been saying that it’d be unwise for the Washington Capitals to trade for Ryan Miller. Our reasoning wasn’t complicated: whatever extra goals Miller might save could be made up for cheaper by spending that money on skaters.
But lately I’ve been coming around. I have seen the error of my ways. I now see the appeal of trading for Miller. In fact, I think I’ve concocted the perfect transaction to make it happen.
Buffalo gets three tough-skating character guys who skate tough and have character.
In exchange, the Capitals get the best head of hair ever to watch from the bench as the US got shut out twice in a row.
…BUT I’M NOT DONE YET!
There. I did it. I just traded for Ryan Miller and made the Caps a better team. I am a genius. Someone hire me.
