Richards is a fantastic prospect, and were such an offer on the table, I would jump on it, were I the Caps GM, damn the consequences for the defense in the short term and even though it would require the acquisition of further grizzled defensemen to mentor the young defensemen. They already have a need for more even with Witt on the roster right now, if only to teach.

I am not the Capitals' GM, however, and I don't think they are prepared to deal Witt. That said, I don't see why the Flyers would give him up, since by all accounts they are quite enamored with Richards. Is Witt worth enough to give up a top prospect? Perhaps if he were signed to long term, but I don't see Clarke going for this.

All in all, I do not believe Witt's value is this high.
