Never, ever going to happen.
1) Leonsis is a Billionare. He's paying $4 million a season to get rid of Jagr. He isn't going to balk at paying AO $2 to show up.
2) AO's contract expires in another year. The NHL will probably be locked out for all, or most, of next year. The Caps can just sit on the kid, let his contract expire, and sign him with NO TRANSFER FEE at all when play resumes.
Don't get me wrong, I'd love to get the kid, but it isn't going to happen unless Sather starts trading a Lindros type package....
