So in essence, Steve Eminger was more of a way for the Caps to move up 60 spots in the draft.
RJ was traded with our 4th rounder (Drew Olson) for the 19th overall pick (Luca Sbisa) and a 3rd rounder (Marc-Andre Bourdon).
So actually, RJ was worth a 1st AND the ability to swap a 4th for a 3rd. So RJ was worth MORE then a first. Eminger was worth much less, as he was traded with a 3rd for a 1st.
I think if Lupul has a good end to the season, we can trade him for a 1st and bring up JVR, which would make my pants tighter!
Thank you! Someone else realizes this!
