Morrisonn is very available. Decent player, if a little inconsistent, but there is room to move him to make roster space for a prospect or two, starting with Alzner (who will be a regular next season).

The Capitals are right at the salary cap. Tomas Fleischmann makes $725K this year, will make $725K next year, and has scored 20 goals this year. He isn't going to be anywhere but Washington next season. He is too valuable versus his cap hit for Washington to move him.

I am a Kubina fan, but that salary doesn't fit, not unless the Caps can trade Nylander first or deal away a significant salary or two.

That said, if a team is taking a salary on the books like Nylander, Clark, Pothier or something, there is more room to maneuver.

This proposed deal, however, has more salary going to Washington than going the other way, and in a single player to boot, and that is a deal breaker. Washington certainly needs defensive help, but it can't break the bank in addressing that need. Tricky.
