It will take more than that to acquire EK.

yikes orpik in the top 4 ........

ek is great but will be gone next season bc he'll get 10-12 million so id rather keep bowey and sign green who just bought a house in dc ......maybe a positive thing to come

orlov is lhd and so is luca jo who's probably needs another year in the ahl

Five stars for getting a realistic 3rd round pick back for Orpik, even if Edmonton isn't necessarily the most likely landing spot.

I'm fine with getting EK for Bowey, a 1st, and a 2nd. He'll end up getting more salary than John Carlson, with whom the Caps just won the Stanley Cup, and who outscored him in the regular season. EK has more career points, but had some kind of injury that affected his skating most of the season, plus tragic personal problems. I think the Caps are fine with who they've got, and with a power play that's worked well together with the same top unit for three years.

That consistency has been a strenghth, and I'd rather they sign Carlson at 8M per year coming off a career year he may never equal than end up extending Karlsson at 10M before seeing if his skating is back close to 100%, and risk ending up with a huge defensive liability.
