Thanks to everyone who emailed this to me (I sit at my desk all day wearing out my left mouse button refreshing various web pages, then I go to the dentist and the Caps make a trade... figures). Anyway, the Caps have sent Richard Zednik packing to the New York Islanders in return for a second round pick (and if Z forgets anything on his way out of town, he can pick it up Saturday when the Isles visit the V.C.).
Considering what the Blue Jackets got for Anson Carter (and what we expected in return for Zednik), the second round pick has to be considered a good return. And hey, now we've all got another team to root against!
One down... how many to go?
