If the Caps spend their 1st, it will be for something they really need.
Ovechkin Backstrom Kozlov
Semin Fedorov Kovalev
Fleischmann Nylander Fehr
Bourque Steckel Laich

Plus 2 first unit power plays
I'm sorry but that's just awesome firepower.

I doubt 3 of the playoff teams in the east make a deal like this.

If Burke feels he can get a 1st for Antropov, you can bet that Kovalev will bring in a 1st.

Eh, Kozlov and Fedorov aren't sniffing 20 goals. Fedorov has about 4 so far. Never-the-less, you're right that they don't really need Kovalev.

No Umberger this year, you might actually have to have some skill this time.

Silly Canadien fans. Lose a series 4-1 and still insist you won.

TO PHI :

Jaroslav Halak
1st Round Pick (WSH)
5th Round Pick (MTL)

TO MTL :

Joffrey Lupul
Martin Biron
2nd Round Pick (PHI)

TO WSH :

Alexei Kovalev


Why you ask?

Philadelphia gives up young sniper in Lupul, as well as their current starting goalie in Biron who is a pure rental player as he's UFA this off-season, and a 2nd round draft pick. In return, they get a young
starting goalie who is waiting for his chance in Halak - he's proven that he's a starting goalie in the NHL, and Philly could be his doorway open. They also gain a low 1st rounder, which they can keep or trade for another€ top 6 forward to fill the void left by Lupul, coupled with a mid/low round pick from the Habs.

Montreal loses a distraction in the room in Kovalev, as well as young starting netminder who is victim of a numbers game, as well as a low draft pick, but and gains a young, dynamic forward in Lupul who has proven he has the talent - his abilities offset the loss of Kovalev, and honestly, he couldn't be much worse. He's signed long term, and has room to improve still and has sniper written all over him. Biron gives them a backup to Price for the playoffs with experience, and help insulate the kid when the pressure is on. They also gain a very decent draft pick to throw on the pile, and get one back from the Schneider deal.

Lastly, Washington does give up their 1st, but they get a rental in Kovalev who would be another addition to the Russian core of the Capitals forwards (Ovechkin, Semin, Fedorov). He's another big bun on a team that boasts a very potent offence, and the Capitals get him for a playoff run without disrupting their existing prospects, and retaining the core of their team for what hopes to be a long playoff run in April.

All born of a coffee break discussion at the office today with a couple of Habs fans - one pro Kovalev, one anti-Kovalev. Thoughts?
I like trade proposals that make sense for all parties involved and you've done a very decent job at thinking this one out. It's quite fair for every team involved.

Contrarily to what some think, Kovalev would fetch a late first round pick at the very least. I'd say that he'd also fetch a prospect on top of that but a 1st is pretty safe.

The only question mark that I'd have is that the Habs will likely be looking for a right handed center with some size as Gainey attempted to get Sundin, then got Lang, both of whom fit the bill.

Zero chance the Caps give a 1st for Kovalev. Also approximately zero chance the Caps are involved in a deal that (possibly) helps the Flyers.

I'd love to see Kovalev on the Caps. Maybe he could teach Ovechkin not to show up every game.

Flyers/Caps were trade partners less than a year ago.

That's fine. But if the Habs were to deal Kovalev the value would be a 1st+, the + dependent on who would be giving up the 1st. I can understand why the caps would want to deal that much, but on the other hand, if the Habs can't get that, no point in dealing him whatsoever.

But we gave them Eminger... that's not helping them, that's strategic sabotage.

That was a draft-day deal, not a deadline deal that would help the Flyers in their playoff run.
