Caps must be cursed

My issue with this trade (coming from a die hard Caps fan) is that Brian Maclellan saw MOJO as being more expendable than Brooks Orpik. Any contract in the NHL is tradable. Dave Bolland, who is $5 million in dead weight for a long time, got traded with a sweetner. We could've offered a sweetner. We have a ton of good defense prospects, plus Vitek Vanecek (good goalie prospect who's expendable because of Samsonov). That should've been enough to move two years of Orpik who can still contribute. If leadership is the issue, Brian Campbell is still sitting as a UFA. We can save the MOJO money there.
