Massive shakeup in Motown

 

  Anthony Mantha was traded today to the Caps for a HUUUUUUGE haul. Jakub Vrana, a talented scoring winger, Richard Panik, an okay servicable middle six winger and a first rounder this year and a second next.

 

 Man there are no words to say how much I love this trade and I love Mantha and hate to see him go. I posted in here about how I didnt see most of our tradebait adding more than a third or fourth rounder, in this deal, we move a talented Mantha for a talented Vrana and add a first this year and second next year. 

 

  Nantha can flat out score but does not backcheck or play anything resembling defense which has driven Blashill absolutely nuts. In that regard he will fit in perfect with the Capitals who score in bunches but just make a passive swing of the stick at the other guys as they go back towards the capitals goal. 

 

 Love the futures in this. Love it love it love it.

I've owned Vrana in my keeper since I drafted him as a 17 year old. He's a special player in my opinion. The Caps did a good job developing him. I think he's a good young pro.

Oh you KNOW I like this deal!!

 

I have no ill will toward Mantha and wish him well, and with the extra talent on the Caps, I expect that he will improve on his accomplishments here. And if he does, I think it will be the talent and style of play that will make the difference, not so much the coaching, even though many will try to blame Blashill.

 

But this is a great idea to give us more building potential while not sacrificing much for the immediate future.

 

Now we’ve just gotta make some of these picks be winners!
