I 100% agree this is a terrible deal for the Caps, and Roloson is really not an asset anyone wants right now, but Smid and Nilsson are not garbage. Both players have alot of potential. I bet by the end of this season both players will have attained a higher value around the league.

Having said that, no way the Caps touch this deal. They don't get anything that moves them forward as a team.

Plus if we were to trade Roli and we make the playoffs (which I think we should) we'd be trading for an experienced playoff goalie as a backup for the playoff come February anyways.

Please let the trade Roli rumours die until February when we know where we stand. If we are out of the picture then Roli becomes a nice rental for a playoff team with goalie question marks. If we're in or near, then he's invaluable to our roster and our chances at playoff success.
