NYI/WASH Proposal

[FONT=Arial Black][SIZE=7]What would it take for the Isles to get both Gonchar and Witt? How about Parrish,Hammer and a pick? OK I'll throw in Bates he is really just minor league trash anyway. OOOhhh he finally has a goal. Or we can just give him to Lavolette for a frozen bucket of pucks. (Sorry I went of there) :p :p

At least let McPhee take his pants off first.

Well if the deal included Milbury trading his job with Mcphee then the above mentioned trade would have a chance of happening.

For the Caps to trade both Witt and Gonchar in a package, a certain return would be necessary... one that I am not sure the NYI can assemble. The Caps would need to be adding NHL or blue-chip prospect defensemen, plural, who are young, carry manageable contracts, and are very close to stepping in as NHL regulars, if requiring some mentoring.

Given the number of well-paid veteran defensemen currently with the NYI, coupled with a thin prospect pool where defensemen are concerned, I really can't see the Capitals making a deal with New York for that pair of players. I do not doubt that for the right return, McPhee would send the pair of them on their way, but the Islanders are not that team. All of Aucoin, Hamrlik, Jonsson, and Niniimaa carry salaries that the Capitals cannot absorb, and the Islanders' blueline on the whole is too old to interest Washington. On the other hand, prospects of the caliber of Stonkus or Tukio are unlikely to get a deal done. Promising youth is what the Capitals covet right now, preferably defensemen.
