Here is a possible trade.

Steve Eminger to Pittsburgh for Brooks Orpik. Two guys making about $1m a peace in the last year of their contracts and taking healthy scratches.

Maybe the Caps have to add something to make up for Eminger's lack of playing shape.

Maybe being in the same conference kills any deal. Thoughts?

Orpik's a much better player but Eminger has RFA years left. Kind of a raw deal for both sides.

I'm thinking Pittsburgh can get more for Orpik. Hell, Brendan Witt brought back a 1st rounder.

Thats true, but Brendan Witt is a lot better than Brooks Orpik. I mean, Witt was manned up against Ovechkin last night and Orpik was in the press box.

Witt was well worth a 1st. I wish he was still on this team.

Why the hell would the Pens do this deal?

to use eminger as a winger for Crosby?

I'd like to get Orpik, but would take a good bit to get him. Although I said the same thing about Jurcina last year.
