The Washington Capitals have no cap space whatsoever. Despite this, that doesn’t mean General Manager Brian MacLellan won’t be looking to improve his roster by the April 12 trade deadline. After all, the Caps Cup window is closing and this is one of their last kicks at the can after two straight first round debacles after finally tasting success.

Needless to say, the pressure is on not only the players on the ice but the decision makers off the ice. It is up to MacLellan to pull off a good trade without disrupting the chemistry. So who could the Caps add at the deadline? Without further ado, let’s find out.

David Rittich plays for the Calgary Flames and the 28 year old has a 4-6-1 record with a 2.79 goals against average and a .907 save percentage in 11 starts.
