Washington gets: defenseman Joe Corvo
Carolina gets: defenseman Brian Pothier, prospect Oskar Osala and a 2nd Round pick
Washington adds a guy who is a puck moving defenseman who didn’t enjoy the pressure of playing in Ottawa.
Um… Yeah, enjoy the new hockey hotbed of Washington, D.C. Joe. Yikes.
Carolina gets a guy I’ve got a soft spot for in Pothier who is a former RPI defenseman and adds a big-bodied prospect in Osala. I know what the Capitals are thinking on this move (veteran defenseman being a good thing) but this has nothing but bad mojo written all over it for Washington and it reeks of being a panic move.
