Deadline Day Done, Caps Winners?

D-man Joe Corvo was added by the Caps on deadline day

The trade deadline has come and gone and teams have either added pieces for a run to the Cup or unloaded dead weight and arm-chair GM’s worldwide come out of the woodworks to slam or praise the real GM’s.

How did the Caps fare you may be asking yourself.  Well, who really knows how the Cap did, I sure don’t.

GMGM unloaded one puck moving defense men, Brian Pothier, for another puck moving defense men, Joe Corvo.  Confused?  Me too.  The Caps also added defense men Milan Jurcina, yes, the same Jurcina the Caps gave the heave-ho to in December.  Confused?  Me too.

Moving on from the additions on defense.  What, were you expecting more?  So was every other Caps fan.  Right Winger Scott Walker was added from the Canes and for only a 7th round pick, way to go George.  Finally, Center Eric Belanger was added from the Wild for a second-round pick and after the Walker deal seems like a steep price, but I’ll give it to you George.

CapsBlog blogger Adam Wellington claimed a winger with a number in the teens would be on the move today in a package for a physical D-man and that, as we know, never pan out, so I said hey Adam, what’s up with the misleading lead?

“A reputable source had told me it was a done deal that would have either Flash or Fehr being shipped out for a physical D-man, but the deal fell through at the last minute because the two team couldn’t come to terms on the value of the mystery player,” said Wellington.  “I made the call to post it and you guys jumped on me when 3 p.m. came and went and a bruiser wasn’t added to the Caps, so I’m sorry, but that goes to show how the day works, things can change on a dime.”

The boys are back in town tomorrow with the new additions in tow and only time will tell if GMGM made the right moves, but the armchairs have spoken and even they don’t even know if the Caps are winners or losers on this important deadline day.
