Once upon a time...
Solid offer on Gudas, but he's not for sale, and the Caps aren't throwing in picks.
edit: or their top prospect. Scandella, Folin and Kovalchuk for Gudas is fine though. I think Montreal wins it, on value, but it gives the Caps some interesting options, in terms of lines and pairings. Folin isn't close to Gudas. Folin is almost Djoos, in terms of age, style, and career stats up until this year. Djoos didn't make the Caps this year, but is on the top pain in the AHL. Kovalchuk, the Caps could have signed for nothing last week. Scandella isn't quite as good as Gudas, but if Montreal prefers Gudas, and is willing to add two usable players to upgrade, that sounds like something the Caps should look at.
