I don't understand the Dubois for Kuemper trade. Can someone explain to me why the Caps were willing to make that trade? Is it simply that they think he's a reclamation project?

Yep they think they can fix him when Columbus couldn’t, Winnipeg couldn’t and LA couldn’t.

Imagine how much of a problem you have to be when a team trades a big package for you, signs you to an 8 year big money deal and gives you away after a single season after contemplating buying out the remaining 7 years of your deal.😳

Washington are grasping at straws because Ovi won’t let them rebuild.

My bad contract for your bad contract?

Anyone interested in Nic Dowd from the Capitals? 

Dubois doesn't come as part of the package, does he?  😉 

 

(Actual answer.  Depends on the cost.)

Technically trades can happen at any time at all.  It's just post-trade deadline traded players aren't playoff eligible for their new team, so there's seldom incentive to make such trades.

Doesn’t move the needle much, but he seems like a legit 4th line vet on an attractive contract.

As the Jost replacement on the depth chart, sure?

He’s a slight upgrade on Jost for sure

Didn’t realize the defensive analytics were so strong.

Got a lot of minutes too on a blah Caps team. 

Somebody who caught your eye, or have heard he’s caught the Sabres’?

Not sure why they’d be moving on from him.

Not really. As long as the two teams playing aren't involved you can do whatever you want. The window before free agency is short so some teams want to get things done (or not) so they can go into free agency (and the draft) with clear plan A's or plan B's.

Maybe Ovi will get his buddy Putin to threaten poisoning him if he doesn't play hard. 

It's a gamble for sure.

I don’t expect much out of KA or the Sabres this year, another playoff miss….

We need a 3C, 4C, two 4th line wingers at least and possibly a 2 LW….

and I’m not bodies here. We need real solid players to fill those spots and with a ton of grizzle….

It ain’t happening’
