Takers on Erskine?

From CSN Washington:
Quote:
[Assuming Wilson does it] With 14 forwards the leading candidates in that salary removal would appear to be center Mathieu Perreault [one-year, $1.05 million], Jason Chimera [one year, $1.75 million], Aaron Volpatti [two years at $575,000 each].
Defenseman John Erskine [two years at $1.962 million each] could be expendable as well.
I'm not sure Wilson will make the team, and if he doesn't, then Caps have only 13 forwards. They have 7 d-men with Schmidt, Orlov, Schilling in Hershey. So I think trading a D is more likely. So, who needs a tough, not very mobile veteran third-pairing D at almost 2M/year? What would you give up (picks/prospects).

Please, do not include JM Liles in your proposals. Thanks.

oh boy...

What's with Perreault? Every time he plays the Jets he's on fire, but seems to lack finish.

Ah !!!

Had the Habs not signed Murray i would hope that they would have an interest in Erskine. He's a better version of Big Doug and one of the most underrated fighter in the league (imho he's probably somewhere in the top 5-10 , the guy is a beast). Would have been a great fit

Perreault is a great #3C in Oates system (especially with Fehr as his RW), can't see him being traded.

The Caps just extended Erskine on February 25th 2013. Can't see them cap dumping him.

Watch Erskine get traded to Montreal or Edmonton. I'm almost convinced those 2 teams are competing to see who can have the most NHL ready defensemen.
