I could see the Leafs talking to the Caps about Semin, although I cannot personally see Burke wanting Semin's baggage.

I agree. I don't see lots of truculence in semin.

Are the caps looking for a defenseman? We currently have an abundance. Or possibly a bottom 6 forward?

If its a Semin deal you can bet Nonis or Dudley will be pulling that one off

Backstrom or Carlson is who I think we would try for. Pretty sure we wouldn't get either though.

Eakins or Johansson would be cool though too.

You'd think Eklund would at least "e4" realistic trade partners haha.

I'm sure the 3rd leading scorer in the league wouldn't help Washington, at all. You can't have him, but this is just a dumb argument.

Why is it that every time any trade rumour surfaces, everyone always has to assume it's going to be some kind of blockbuster involving several of each team's core pieces?

Leafs and Caps in talks? MUST BE SEMIN + CARLSON!!!1

Anyway, aren't both teams relatively close to the cap ceiling? The Leafs definitely need to shed some salary, especially with guys like Armstrong/Lombardi making 3M or more a year playing in the bottom six.... but I don't see why the Caps would be willing to take on - or even capable of taking on - a contract like that right now. Probably just Eklund blowing hot air as usual.

Kessel for Eakins is my proposal.

No? You wouldn't do that? No wonder Washington has had so much success in the playoffs lately.....

We took Backstrom over Kessel in the draft and it has worked out great for us.
We don't need another sniper.
