This just happened. Matthew Phillips has been claimed by the Pittsburgh Penguins, per Elliotte Friedman, after the Washington Capitals placed him on waivers. With the Caps playing at the Montreal Canadiens tomorrow night there could be more moving parts between now and March 8 which is trade deadline day.

The Caps held a practice at MedStar Capitals Iceplex and Bailey Johnson of The Washington Post reported that Sonny Milano is on track to play so that waiver move was to make room for him. He's been on IR since Dec. 14 with an upper body injury. Milano skated with Max Pacioretty with Mike Sgarbossa.

#3 Max Pacioretty?

If there's one good thing about this relationship between Max Pacioretty and the Caps is that at the very least the relationship lasted a little bit longer than Dwight Howard and the Wizards. But since January Patches has done a decent job on the top six.

The reason the Caps could potentially shop him is both his age right now which is 35 and when you're 35 an up your career is winding down whether you like it or not. The rumor has it that the Caps could shop Pacioretty and he could go to a winning team. The other rumor is that it could be the Golden Knights but what do we know?
