Salary dump or not, the Caps have to be asking for more than a depth player. Plus, his defensive play would be a big factor. In the last 6 years he has been a plus only twice - not a JM kind of player. Scoring is not Ottawa's problem though - they're 2nd in the league in offense. They would be looking more for grit and toughness instead of finesse.

But supposing that this deal goes through the way you've described it, it's a great move for Ottawa if they have to give up very little.
