I saw a proposal today where all the caps fan said they would not give up John Carlson and a 1st round pick for CHRIS PRONGER.

My message to cap fans: Enjoy a lifetime of watching a good team that can never get over the hump if you wont make trades to get the impact players that put you over the top.

Pronger instantly makes you the favorite to come out of the east IMO. Antropov not so much but if you want to add depth to your scoring and dont want to tinker with your line up then what do you offer? GM's dont give players away.
As a Caps fan, I agree with you. We should absolutely trade Carlson for Pronger. Carlson + whatever it takes.

However, I would NEVER trade Carlson for Antropov. Good lord, that's one sided.

Why don't you trade us Schenn for Brooks Laich and Tomas Fleishmann?
