Luongo for Neuvirth + Johansson + 3rd

They have a goalie 'to help push them in'. His name is Braden Holtby. Trading for a vet would be just a distraction for him. For the first time in like 5 years, we have a clear-cut bona fide #1 goalie. Trading for some underachieving old guy to make him '#1.5' doesn't make sense. It'd be a terrible asset management and ruin the chemistry the Caps have. The Caps need LD/LW, but it will be guys with at least one year left on the deal. Also, I can see some of bodies on D shipped out - if anyone needs Poti, Schultz, they're available.

Caps have 13 healthy defensemen now and the problem is that only three of them are top-4 on the contending team. Getting a guy like Klesla or Sekera should be a #1 priority for GMGM.

On LW, I bet the Caps would be looking to put some guy who scores more than Brooks Laich as Ribeiro's LW. That'd complete our second line and make it respectable, FINALLY. Took us three years since Fedorov's departure to get there.
