#2 Anthony Mantha
The forwards might be too easy and obvious but we start with Anthony Mantha who the Caps were reportedly shopping around the draft but no other teams seemed to garner interest in the inconsistent right winger.
Mantha is coming off an 11 goal season. He had nine the year before but he had shoulder surgery and played in 30 less games so he gets a pass there.
Having just two more goals than the previous year despite playing in 30 more games has to be rough. That’s almost like scoring just two goals in those 30 extra games.
It’s not really the inconsistency that make him an unattractive trade chip. It’s more his inconsistency that would be coming with his $5.7 million cap hit.
It’s one thing to be inconsistent when you’re making two million. That’s still enough to make a better living than most of us, collect good paychecks and party.
If I was a bad athlete and I was making five million a year I’d be in Las Vegas at least every other weekend. Mantha has a kid and just got married so I doubt he’s out there. But hey at least he can send the little girl to college.
