Capitals

As doom and gloom as things look right now, the Capitals still have a pretty bright future with young pieces to build around. I think it is pretty clear to everyone that the team that is assembled now in Washington isn't going to win much. The team should trade Alex Ovechkin to Colorado for O'Reilly++ and then sell Green, Ribeiro, and others at the deadline.

Hypothetically:

Alex Ovechkin for Ryan O'Reilly, Duncan Siemens, 2014 1st Rd. Pick.

I made it a 2014 1st rounder to make it less of a hit to Colorado if they finish low this year. Also, I'm not great with proposals so maybe Siemens can be switched to a lesser defensive prospect.

Capitals build around:

X-Backstrom-Forsberg
Kuznetsov-O'Reilly-Wilson

Alzner-Carlson
Orlov-Siemens

Holtby

They also look like they are on their way to a high pick so insert a top forward prospect into that 1st line wing.
