Deadline Day – Deal 14: Washington-Carolina

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — Joe Yerdon @ 3:17 PM

Trade:

Washington gets: defenseman Joe Corvo

Carolina gets: defenseman Brian Pothier, prospect Oskar Osala and a 2nd Round pick

Analysis:

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.
