I like Buffalo's end of the deal better but given the timing that should be expected. NYI jumped the gun a bit and their season could go either way. They still need a goaltender and better D depth to be contenders this year. I like their forwards a lot but who knows how they'll fare overall through the grind of the season. Visnovsky's a big injury.

No Visnovsky or Streit and suspect goaltending.

Yeah guess it wasn't very smart...

Interesting trade.

Not a whole lot going to Buffalo but a whole lot coming from New York. I thought Moulson was one of their big pieces, and obviously he doesn't have much value to the Sabres.

Nothing to stop them from flipping him at the deadline (right?) if things don't work out. I can see them getting a first and second right back for him (obviously they'd be from a playoff team and worse picks than they gave up at that point, but it's still not much of a price to pay).

Take Brooks Laich, kill off any intangibles he has outside the hash marks while tripling his scoring ability from inside the hash marks and you get Matt Moulson. If he was off Tavares's line and on any line where he needed to carry the play to the extent your average well rounded hockey player does he wasn't much more than a salary dump for them. Given that Vanek was gonna take his place there anyway the Islanders didn't lose anything by giving him up.

Wish GMGM would have the balls to trade our top line stat who**. Oh well.

Yes trade a cheap 22 year old who plays great with your 2 franchise players.

Maybe Klesla for MoJo + 1st. No wait, Coyotes would say no way Caps would have to add a lot more.

Steep price for Vanek, then again, I was never a huge fan of his.

The Kings defense system is the antithesis of the Capitals defense system. Laying the body on everything that moves, the Capitals just try to win a staring contest.

Yeah thank god we got Fleischmann-lite keeping our top line as soft and neutered as possible. Where else could we possibly find someone with zero finish to regularly cough up the puck?

Not that great at all, but at least he's adequately priced.

I think it's a win\win trade with a slight edge to Buffalo as the Isles are still long way beneath the territory when it makes sense to trade for rentals; Sabres, however, stay the rebuild course.

Kinda funny how Fowler went from atrocious defense to great defense, but in doing so turned in to Karl Alzner.

From all reports an ok draft year at the top and not a lot of depth so would not be surprised seeing more first round draft picks going. Would not be surprised to see the caps trade their if there is something out there available depending on how they finish record wise (naturally).

Has nothing to do with it, its called puck support. Long telegraphed passes getting picked off is to be expected.

Well, that as well but their passes are also terrible. Green is a big culprit hitting guys in their feet and Ovechkin often is overzealous with his as well.

It's a good part of why the Caps have hardly any functional team speed. They very rarely are able to hit a forward with a crisp pass in stride.
