    Think Drouin's worth more than two cap dumps.

    You'd be crazy to give up your starting goalie of now and the future for cap reasons when you're a contender.

    Andy is 40 or so next season. Can't depend on him. V has been okay

    Dont think that gets Drouin, but I do think Drouin to Seattle is an excellent idea for Drouin.

    I don't think Edmonton does this. There are better UFA goalies available this summer, they aren't giving up their #1 forward prospect for Washington's backup. Especially when everyone knows the Capitals predicament with their goalies and the expansion draft.
