Wideman got it strictly on looking at his offensive stats (goals etc.) and not his defensive work.

This is where we as Caps fans really inflated his value as we approached the TDL. To me if the Caps had made a deal with the Devils in lieu of their trade (for Zidlicky)with the Wild for the very same assets (no first rounder but getting our 2nd back) that would have been a steal for us.
hindsight is 20/20 but I think the majority of us were all on board for perhaps letting go of Wideman but the reasoning we didn't is b/c we wanted to have depth on D going into the playoffs in order to make a long run. That and the uncertainty behind Green's health.
