Why is it that every time any trade rumour surfaces, everyone always has to assume it's going to be some kind of blockbuster involving several of each team's core pieces?

Leafs and Caps in talks? MUST BE SEMIN + CARLSON!!!1

Anyway, aren't both teams relatively close to the cap ceiling? The Leafs definitely need to shed some salary, especially with guys like Armstrong/Lombardi making 3M or more a year playing in the bottom six.... but I don't see why the Caps would be willing to take on - or even capable of taking on - a contract like that right now. Probably just Eklund blowing hot air as usual.
