Washington changes things up with a bold move, trading away two mainstays and banking on the continued development of a solid top-six center. We're also excited with the possibilities MPS brings, with hopes that he can finally reach his full potential with the Capitals.
Also, seeing at how solid this draft class is, we felt a move into the top ten this year is key, and we look forward to adding a quality blue chip prospect.
We wish Mike and Brooks all the best in Edmonton
Will break it down later after getting back from Great Adventure
SEEN YOUR VIDEO!
waive Steve Montador, Rostislav Olesz, and Sheldon Brookbank If one gets claimed we will buy out the other 2. If none get claimed, we will buy out Olesz and Montador and figure something out with Brookbank.
I'm willing to give a mid-round pick for anyone who will claim Brookbank off waivers. If you do, you can send him to the minors and he'll only cost you $350k on the cap. So basically you get a mid round draft pick for $350k worth of cap space many of you won't be using anyway...
We still have Milan Michalek and Colin Greening on the block, get your offers in!
Also, we'll consider offers for any of our other players (Conacher, Cowen, Turris, Silfverberg, Zibanejad, Ceci) other than Karlsson and Alfredsson, as long as the deal meets our needs (top-pairing d-man, young impactful winger)
Offers for Fleury and Letang continue to come in.... we have 2 offers for the two in a package deal, something we would definitely consider. I'm targeting a Letang trade for the end of the day, so contact us as soon as possible.
We also have Jussi Jokinen, Brooks Orpik, and Matt Niskanen on the block.
Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau will only be available for the rest of the day, otherwise we'll move in a different direction. They may be older, but I'm surprised there is not too much interest in these guys.
