I think you would have to have closer knowledge of the situation in Washington to understand the impact that he had on the team and the quality of his play.

McPhee said. "The way the players talked about him in our season-end meetings made it clear that this is a guy we have to have back. In talking to Sergei, he was pretty firm in what he wanted and what his value was. He's been a great player in this league, and we showed him respect and made it work."

more....Fedorov, who has credited the trade to Washington with reinvigorating his career, skated with Ovechkin and Semin in May at the world championships in Canada, where Russia claimed the gold medal.

Some deals just fall into place unexpectedly. This is one of those cases of a pure short term rental hitting the sweet spot.
