This Is HUGE!!! A Trade Rumor via Washington/NJ
 
Well, it looks like Washington is inching one step closer to having a Fire-Sale of the team.

Through a very close friend of mine of over 20 years, whose father works for the Washington Post Newspaper, called just before and told me that his Dad heard through a "reporter-source" (that also works for the newspaper) that there has been an discussion between Washington Capitals & the NJ Devils.

Of which, a deal is "trying to be worked out" for Sergei Gonchar & Robert Lang.

It seems the Caps would trade both to us "if" we send them Tuomas Pihlman, Ahren Nittel + our 2004 ~ 1st & 3rd & 7th round picks.

Once again...this is not through "my source" but through another avenue who is close to the vest of what goes on with the Caps.

I don't know how I would feel making this trade, but to get Robert Lang AND Gonchar...I'd probably do it.

However, what does NJ do without excess of puck-carrying D-Men?

We've been discussing this on our board for a while now. I don't think this will happen. Waaaay too much salary coming back our way.

They're not looking for quality. Just best available deal.
