the original proposal involves far too many players to be realistic. the caps aren't likely to deal gonchar right now - maybe at the trade deadline - and even then they will demand a high return. kolzig to the avs makes sense but the avs can save themselves a bunch of money if they stick with aebischer for now. they might look at acquiring a veteran money goalie for the playoffs sometime in feb or at the deadline. the caps first priority is to deal jagr -- the issue is not what the caps get in return (the caps would take virtually nothing) - it is how much another team is willing to take of his contract. and if they can swing something they would likely have to take a short-term overpaid player back in return (lindros? cujo?). grier, for his part, is probably one of the last players they would want to deal - he hussles, which is a rarity in DC.
