Enquiring monkeys want to know.
That's easy BECAUSE Washington needs defense and can not afford to trade him or even move him forward... and the only thing that keeps him back their is his blast from the point on the PP... You will notice that his partner on the point is Bondra on the PP becasue of his shot and lack of defenseman capable of that in Washington... and you think that Washington can afford to trade him... They are in the same boat and if they should trade say Gonchar for Kaberle what would be the point for either team ... Both need Defense so they do not make good trading partners as both teams are dealing from a position of weakness..
