Somebody is going to end up with Nylander and will end up also pleasantly surprised with the quality of his play. He just is just not cut out for the Caps style of play under Boudreau and his production is further knocked down by 3rd line minutes and little PP time. Oh, and no fan of the team getting Nylander is going to be happy about it when it happens.

Its not this deal though. The Caps have no space for a top 6 forward. They might bring in an inexpensive penalty killer, but that is it. Their need is for an established, playoff experienced top 4 defenseman.

Ok, besides the disagreement over value, the reason these trades dont make sense is the Caps arent really interested in aquiring more skill players, especially forwards, since we have several of those already.

If they get anyone at all their main focus will be a tough, veteran defenseman or possibly a gritty (and experienced) forward. Examples would be Pronger, Morris, Ohlund & Zanon and forwards Tkachuck, Cole, Cooke, Neil, etc. These are the type of players the Caps are looking for.
