[ANA/WAS]Mathieu Perreault for John Mitchell and a 4th round pick

I hesitate to post this, as 25stanley has some sources (Broke a couple Montreal-related stories earlier this summer) but at other times just passes off stuff that comes his way. But this seemed interesting, and makes some sense.

Perreault hasn't seemed to be in the mix with Adam Oates as coach of the Capitals and the Ducks were hoping one of their young players would step up and take the #2 center spot in camp, so I could see where this would be a fit. Not sure if there is actual discussion on this, or just the guy putting 2 and 2 together, but it's something to keep an eye on.

Bonino is the #2 center. There has been open competition between Winnik, Holland, and Rakell for the 4C job in camp. Though, I doubt we'd bother trading for a guy like Perrault at this point. With our weak blue-line at the moment, I'd have to think a trade for a d-man is far more likely.

I will believe it when I see it. BB has a pretty well known aversion to MP, bordering on pathological.

You may be onto something. Eric Stephens (Anaheims beat writer) just tweeted this:

Hearing Ducks could be making a move shortly. Not suspecting it's a blockbuster one.
EDIT:

Done deal

Folks and @kcarrera on top of it. She's reporting C Mathieu Perreault for LW John Mitchell. Defense not addressed with move.

Lisa Dillman reporting an imminent trade.

Eric Stephens also reporting Anaheim about to make a minor deal.

Confirmed.

VogsCaps: #Caps have dealt C Mathieu Perreault to the Anaheim Ducks and are down to 23-man roster for 2013-14. Details here: http://t.co/v2D4ByxSff

Not too sure about that. We haven't heard all that much about our centers, other than Boudreau praising Holland early on. You're right that most things would point towards Bonino having that #2 spot on a line with Silfverberg and Selanne, but we have little of an idea how Boudreau felt about his preseason play, from all I read. What sticks out was his abysmal faceoff-percentage in preseason. I would be a bit surprised, but really not shocked to see something like Perreault happening. He has the Boudreau connection, has shown some ability to produce in the NHL, and might be out of a place with Oates, so he might be available relatively cheap before the Caps have to waive him.

In regards to defense, it really depends on Vatanen and Lindholm. Murray wanted to make room for Vatanen already, and they might well like Lindholm's strong play in preseason enough to actively want to have him on the team, as well. Between those and the Fistric signing as a reaction to Souray's injury, I'm really not sure defensemen are more of a focus.

EDIT: Too slow, beaten by the confirmation. Interesting.

#Caps announce that they have traded forward Mathieu Perreault to Anaheim.

May be true, but you'd be crazy to think Perreault can't help up front.

Welp. I was way off on that. Looks like both Rakell and Holland will be starting in Norfolk. Not a fan of this move. Nothing wrong with the value though. Mitchell will probably never be an NHLer.

We'll trade you guys Meszaros to send Perreault back to us.

I think the Ducks made a great value trade. Oilers fans should be asking where MacTavish was on this.

He can help, but he is not a top two center, or anything close to that. And BB really didn't like him or play him in DC. From that prospective deal is very confusing to me.

As a Ducks fan I'm very happy. We essentially gave up nothing for something.

Wish the Oil would have got in on this. Better 4th line C than Acton (3rd until our guys get back).
