I think a change of scenery would to him wonders. He's still a very capable player.

Seriously, what's funny about that? A young first rounder and 3 second rounders in the Devil's top four who have all improved since their draft years (the 2nd rounders). Add in Santini another 2nd rounder, and Greene our current #1 and you have the makings of a top defense.

Kind of my thought as well, the Devils and Caps are two of the hardest teams in the league to actually get info on. That is for guys like Dreger, Mac and Lebrun. Hey it could happen, but I would love to know how Eklund managed to get that info. Pretty much every Devils trade outside of Zidlicky has been a shock, nobody ever knows what the Caps are doing until they do it. Grabo to the Caps made sense in terms of free agent fit and the ability to talk to his agent, but once again outside of that not a whole lot of previous buzz that has materialized.

Boucher is a keeper and Gelinas, Merrill, and Severson are going to be half of possibly the best D group in the league in a few years. No I'm not joking.
At this point through two years Brunner looks like an extremely streaky player, selling him during one of those streaks would probably be a good idea.

The Czech fit with Erat does make a ton of sense in terms of him being pursued by the Devils, but these teams look likely to battle each other in the standings which also makes this fit here rough. In that sense Brunner doesn't add a whole lot when looking at the Caps, so the would likely be hunting something else on the Devils because this should be a pure hockey trade where both teams are getting something they really want and need.

While the players aren't brutal, the leap to best unit in the league is substantial and not very realistic either.

All your Czechs are belong to us.

Seriously though, I think it's funny that as soon as Brunner starts playing well this just happens to pop up. I'm not opposed to buying low on Erat, but the timing of this seems fishy. Especially since with Clowe coming back off IR, we just have too many bodies.

Fayne for Erat makes more sense, for both teams.

If not this makes zero sense for Capitals to trade him for another RW. There are Ovechkin, Brouwer, Ward, Wilson and Fehr already.

I would still propably do this trade to get rid of Erat and have 2m more of cap space.
I still don't understand why they moved Ovi from his record breaking Left Wing position.

Seems like it was a smart move. He has 60 goals in his last 80 games.

With Brunner's injury, i think the Devils should trade for Erat

Erat for Bryce Savador + Jacob Josefson or Mattias Tedenby

I would love to move a defenseman for Erat to play with Elias. Not sure if Lou trades with WAS now that they are in our division.

Keep away from Erat, aging, underachieving and overpaid. Brunner, while still a one dimensional player is finally showing his skill and speed. Heck, he's even going to the boards. He finally looks comfortable as a Devil, bad timing for the injury to happen, but I wouldn't move him now. Trade deadline if we're out of the playoff race.
