That leaves:

I would argue that that is overpayment. Quincey's no Alzner, but he's not much older and is much better offensively while still playing a sound defensive game. Washington has guys like Carlson, Hamrlik, Schultz and Erskine who can play the defensive game. With Wideman gone, it's Green and Hamrlik for offensive defensemen. I think Franzen being included is excess, though. Maybe if you change him out for Eaves/Miller or even Abdelkader it works. That would make the final deal:

Alzner+Johansson = Quincey+Nyquist+Eaves/Miller/Abdelkader+McCollum+1st

Which I think is a fair deal.
Quality for quantity that more likely than not makes Washington worse near and long term.

No thanks.
