actually, they do expect the capitals to give him away. the vultures are circling. they want bondra for a 4th rounder. they want grier for a 3rd tier, useless prospect. they want the caps to pay them to take jagr or lang. they want kolzig for a #6 defenseman. they want gonchar for a useless player or two. the capitals are now a bad team with some very good parts and fans of these other teams are looking at the caps like its a going out of business sale.
The Caps did not get Colorado's #1 prospect for Steve Konowalchuk. That player, while a first round draft choice, was not signed and as recently as last night on ESPN2's coverage of the Colorado/Chicago game heard reports that PL had no intention of signing that player.
That is why the Caps get a 2nd from Colorado if he is not signed. In the end that deal will be Konowalchuk and a 3rd for Battaglia and a 2nd. Big improvement there.
