Breaking: Caps Get Huet
Breaking: Caps Get Fedorov
Breaking: Caps Get Cooke for Pettinger
Like last year, I wanted to throw open a thread for you guys to discuss any and everything trade deadline-related, so here it is.
For all the latest news, I recommend Kukla's Korner, Spector's Hockey and TSN.ca (and if you've got other go-to's, let us know in the comments).
Is that graphic rehashed? You bet it is!
And while we all expect the Caps to stand pat (despite a history of doing otherwise), here are the Caps' picks, by round, in the 2008 Entry Draft, FYI:
1st – WSH
2nd – WSH
2nd – FROM SJ
2nd – FROM PHI
3rd – WSH*
4th – FROM LA
5th – WSH
6th – WSH
7th – WSH
* The Caps will owe either a third or a fourth round pick to Boston as compensation for last year's Milan Jurcina trade, depending on Jurcina's games played and total ice time, and since Juice ain't going to average 20 minutes per game (one of the triggers), it's going to be a fourth round pick that the Caps lose (but I assume they can't trade their third, as it is possible, technically, that it will be Boston's).
So enjoy Deadline Day, and here's hoping the Thrashers, Bolts, Cats and 'Canes all get ripped off.
Note: I will be adding a Tuesday morning post, but this will stay at the top of the page, so be sure to check out the morning Roundup after 6:30 AM or so.
