It's actually the 1st time I read it straightly that Orlov's injury is a concussion. Big deal, Malkin had concussions too
However, his injury story is exactly why I think this trade may be considered.
Would be brutal for the caps in a few years but I can see some people open to the idea. Would make letting Semin go for nothing seem really stupid though
It already looks stupid after getting Ribeiro
Idk what's more needed for the Caps: 3rd offensive defenseman who's not fully developed yet, or a veteran scorer. The team is built around AO and Backtrom, and while they surely have a lot of prime years ahead, the Caps have way too much inexperienced players on the roster. We can't wait forever, IMO.
