Washington - Phoenix

Washington: Rusty Klesla
Phoenix: Martin Erat

It sounds like Martin Erat isn't happy and Washington fans are happy with Erat and his situation. Trade him to Phoenix for some cap flexibility and in return get back a serviceable veteran.

Phoenix has a ton of defenseman and they aren't playing Klesla very much, so why not send him to Washington for a player that has fallen out of favor? Phoenix has the cap space to take on Erat's extra million dollars in cap hit with the added bonus of his actual salary being something like $2.25 million. Phoenix management pays out less and gets a serviceable player, Washington gets cap flexibility.

Win-Win in a sort of lateral move?

Also Klesla was available for free on waivers yesterday. Nobody claimed him.

With the yotes starting to slump a bit I think this trade has already fallen through as McPhee likely asked for more. Knowing the west is as tough as it is PHO might cave and throw in a pick or prospect. Klesla would only add to the log jam for the caps at LD. They seem high on Erskine and cap reasons are keeping Nate Schmidt in Hershey.

Fans want it. I don't think GmGm does.

I would take this and run, from a Phoenix POV.

It makes sense for both sides but I think the value is lopsided in Phoenix's favor.

I think a pick or prospect is better than a player that any team could've claimed now twice for free. At least the yotes would get a player they could use. The caps really like having Erskine in the lineup thus not really a spot for Rusty without injury and even then Schmidt would get the call up.
