This should be a good trade for both sides. Detroit is stacked on defense, needed a bit of a jolt to its offense for an immediate Cup run. They give up a smallish, light player who is all offense and a scoring machine from what I have been hearing, despite playing in comparatively tougher WHL opposition than the rest of the CHL. Detroit has enough forwards of that ilk, whereas Washington has lots of gritty prospects but not enough offense among the group. Fleischmann and Fussey should renew their old chemistry.

Caps should end up with three 1st rounders again this year.

Considering the Caps are not paying any salary in the deal, the return is excellent.
