It’s only a matter of time before a big thing happens in D.C. No I’m not talking about the Commanders sale and the exodus of Daniel Snyder but thank the lord for that. But I’m talking about the Washington Capitals making a trade. Who will they trade? Well we at least know one or two.

But we got to include three for the sake of the slideshow so who are the three that are likely to depart from the Caps? I hate that I get asked to do these things.

#3 T.J. Oshie

This is going to get me a lot of heat but for the record I DON’T WANT IT TO HAPPEN. But if general manager Brian MacLellan gets desperate to shed salary, T.J. Oshie may not be the worst option.

I told you this was going to get bad. Again this is me putting my emotions at the door and becoming a total hockey nerd.

Some people say the Oshie contract with an AAV of $5.75 million that’s good for two more seasons was a waste of money. It wasn’t. It was good for at least three or four seasons.

Unfortunately after he injured himself in the first round of 2019 against the Carolina Hurricanes the heart and soul of the Caps hasn’t been the same.
