#3 Evgeny Kuznetsov will get traded
I can easily make this bold prediction number one if I wanted to but one too easy and two Evgeny Kuznetsov could get traded as I’m writing this or hitting publish.
Now I’m going to get a lot of heat because the other day I said the Caps were going to and should give Kuznetsov another chance. That was my prediction.
But this morning an article from Caps senior writer Mike Vogel confirmed what we thought was true but weren’t 100 percent sure, Kuznetsov did request a trade.
Vogel notes that the Caps usually accommodate these requests of players wanting to get traded. But trading Kuznetsov for a top six forward has been difficult as a Kuzy for Matt Duchene swap with the Nashville Predators fell through.
Vogs does however mention that there is a possibility Kuznetsov could respond positively to the new coaching staff.
