So Battaglia and Skoula aren't really desireable here in DC. Yet you think we'd give up Kolzig and Jagr for one good young scoring forward, a couple so-so grinders and one good, but streaky offensive defenseman who's a bit suspect in his own end? Thanks but we've already got several streaky offensive defensemen suiting up for us everynight who are suspect in their own end.

What we need is a stay-at-home defenseman along the lines of Adam Foote. Not that Colorado would ever trade him...

And Washington isn't going to trade Kolzig right now. Ouellet looked great in Pre-season and in Portland right now, but who knows if he's ready for full time duty in the NHL. I know our back up Charpentier sure as hell ain't. Honestly, Kolzig would be vying for the Vezina on a team like Colorado or Detroit or Dallas... but he's stuck facing 35+ shots a night because our idiot GM and the nepotism freak of a coach have turned our blue line into revolving doors past the first pair.
The caps would KILL to have this deal. Jagr could pass through waivers right now, and no one would pick him up........how do you expect to get good return for a guy that had 55mil over 5 years left on his contract, underachieves, and is a team headache. Wakeup to reality.......Kolzig could command alot, but Jagr will command nothing but other overpaid deadweight...
