    Yeah. I think the Caps could reasonably pass on all but Seattle. But it's looking like another first round exit, so they're gonna make some moves and try to come out about even. They were in the hunt for the division lead in one of the toughest divisions, right up until the last three games. So they don't need to make big changes, but a few guys around the league could maybe use a change of scenes.

    With Nashville, my logic is that NSH have four D worth protecting and NSH scored the fewest goals of any playoff team, so trading a top pairing D for a top playmaking center gives them expansion safety and fixes their offense. Would they move a different center to wing or trade one? I don't know. Up to them.

    eta: your profile quote is missing a great chance for alliteration on "since."
