Fleischmann would be a good start. I was thinking that adding Shaone Morrisonn could work for both sides (provides a decent roster replacement for Nashville and opens up a spot/salary for Washington).
So something to the effect of:
Fleischmann + Morrisonn for Hamhuis
Would the Caps need to add a pick/prospect?
I understand your concern, but it's not like Hamhuis is a UFA right now. 1 year to re-sign him should be more than enough...and I think he'll be one of the prizes of the UFA market if he gets there. I can't imagine he's looking for more than 3.5-4 million a year.
