Caputi or Hanson
CGY Gets: Kaberle, Erskin
CGY Gives: Sarich, Langkow, Moss
add Kaberle, which greatly improves their defense and offensive production, erskin just for D depth. Also gain much need cap space (3.6M) to push them back under the cap to start the season
Toronto Gives: Kaberle, Grabovski, Caputi/Hanson
Toronto Gets: Fleishmann, Langkow, Moss, Finley
Why? Kaberle needs to be moved (both for roster and conflict issues), Fleishmann steps in and challenges (takes) #1 center role. Langkow (trade dependent on him being physically ready to go) is much better fit for 3rd line center role with leafs, brings much needed veteran character to their top 9. Moss adds top 9 fwd depth/experience, Finley is massive/truculent D prospect.
Burke gets his return for Kaberle (top 6 player/prospect in fleishmann/finley), and swaps youth for experience in top 9.
Wash Gives: Fleishmann, Erskine, Finley
Wash Gets: Sarich, Grabovski, Caputi/Hanson
Why? add vet physical player with cup experience on D, Grabovski replaces Fleishmann and fits in next to Semin as 2nd line centre. Caputi/Hanson serves as call-up this year, replaces Knuble in top 6 next year.
works for all three teams cap-wise, and imo, value-wise, while addressing each teams immediate and/or future needs.
