This has turned into a banner trading day for the Washington Capitals, as they made four trades before the 3pm deadline. Yes, you read that right: four trades.
The Caps sent off: a sixth round draft pick (to Columbus, for Jurcina), D Brian Pothier, prospect F Oskar Osala and a second round draft pick (to Carolina, for Corvo), a second round draft pick (to Minnesota for Belanger), a seventh round draft pick (to Carolina, for Walker)
Wow. That’s a lot of shake-up and increased talent for the Caps. We’ll hopefully have some insightful things to say tomorrow when our head stops hurting from all the various parts of these deals from McPhee’s office. Whew!
