Mind you, with his contract at this moment in time, it's probably a non-starter.
Not that I'm advocating any Ovechkin to Toronto deal, but if Ovechkin gets dumped, I would imagine he gets traded the way Jaromir Jagr did to Washington. You get three prospects who probably aren't blue chip, but who slot somewhere beneath Kuznetsov and probably even Forsberg in terms of quality.

Washington then rolls into the future with Backstrom, Kuznetsov, Forsberg, Carlson, Alzner Player A, Player B, Player C in tow.

I would imagine Mike Green getting the boot as well.
