As in there is no way the Caps would accept this value.

Johanesson is their current RW, and he can play center and is young and improving by leaps and bounds.

Wilson is their 1st round pick from this year that has power forward written all over him.

I'm not even a caps fan and I think there is no way they accept the trade, they essentially give up a proven 2nd liner with more upside still and 2 first round picks.

You have to look at it from both sides of the coin, why would the caps accept this deal? As it currently stands given the Nash trade, I would not trade Iginla, the time has past for him to give us back a superstar player already.
