Everyone's just speculating right now. From what I can tell, McPhee is breaking the news personally in his presser.

We're basically working on the premise that:

a) The Sabres are the team that traded with the Capitals
b) Stafford is not a big enough get for the GM to tell all the local TV stations to get their ***** over there for the presser

So it has to be pretty damn big. Ovechkin, Backstrom, Miller, etc...those would qualify.

He's not bringing back Miller, especially if Stafford is also going.

Calling it now. This is going to be a huge trade. This is Darcy's do or die moment in Buffalo.

I would eat my hat if Miller got traded.He's not being dealt, if it is Stafford it will be for a 2nd round pick and no name prospect.

Why is everyone drooling over Carlson? I'd rather get Alzner if we're involved in a big deal with the Caps. That's a guy who could play next to Myers for the next decade and be a stable defensive force, allowing Tyler to roam and do his thing offensively.

Has it actually been confirmed that we're the ones talking to Washington though?

Not even sure TV/Miller + would get it done. No way.

I'll laugh harder if its just Staff.

Yeah, I wouldn't be overly excited for Carlson, either.

I hope so since I'm 100% emotionally invested in this deal.

Carlson, Orlov, Johansson, and Forsberg are the types of names I'd expect Regier to be after.

No, but it kind of makes sense because Buffalo hasn't confirmed that they are done.

Not confirmed. But Paul Hamilton has suggested the Sabres weren't done based on his trying to get info, which leads to rampant speculation that it's the Sabres dealing with the Caps.

Everything is completely speculatory at this point.

Salaries are pro-rated. Washington might have to make some moves in the off-season to get back under, but for the rest of the season they should be able to eat Miller and Staff's contracts.

Main board suggesting that Wash could be a 3rd team in on the Pominville deal?

Speculation and I highly doubt it, but hey were talking Ovi on the Sabres, at this point I think it's all a go.
