Never say never, but acquiring Filatov does not seem like something McPhee would do at this time.
True, but if they are dangling him in a decent deal that at the same time, would free up some cap space for the deadline while allowing Alzner to get prime playing time down the stretch, I could see him pulling the trigger on something like that.
Interesting news...I agree with those that think it is one of the other dmen, not Alzner, potentially on the move in a deal.
Morrisonn or Jurcina the most logical ones...could the Poti scratches have something to do with this...much more likely he is dealing with an injury.

Oh, absolutely. It would put the screws to Semin and Gandler, gaining the Caps back a bit of leverage, a good 18 months before the Caps and Semin have to face the music, and not 72 hours since Semin gained all the leverage versus the Caps. It would be quick work.
Make no mistake, Filatov is Semin v2.0, minus the enigma. He's affable and he made an effort to learn English.
