Yeah, it was draft day. Washington traded us the 26th overall (Vagner), 42nd overall (Holtet), and a 6th rounder in 2003 (don't know who exactly that ended up being) for the 13th overall. Terrible deal. It's partly where we got our cynicism about always trading down.

The Caps had the 26th pick in the first place from a deadline deal with Philly where they sold off Adam Oates.

edit: It's kind of funny that we could've easily had both Alex Semin and Mike Green. Sort of.
