NHL Draft - Caps Making Moves

Man cannot live by Redskins alone

Lanky Livingston


Big day for GMGM and Capitals yesterday. Thanks to the Varlamov trade, the Caps had both the 11th and 16th overall picks. Due to a run on talented defensemen (8 of the first 10 picks were DMen), Filip Forsberg fell to the Caps at 11, noted by as a top-3 talent in the draft. He will play one more year in Sweden, and then join the team in 2013-2014.

At 16th, the Caps got winger Tom Wilson, a big, physical forward who loves to fight and crash the net. He will bring more physicality to the roster, and could eventually be a replacement for Knuble in the top-6. A guy like this could score a lot of clean-up goals on the same line as Ovechkin.

Finally, the Caps addressed the need for a 2nd-line Center by trading their 2nd round pick and Cody Eakin to the Dallas Stars for Mike Ribeiro. Ribeiro is probably best known for his filthy shootout moves; combined with Matt Hendricks, the Caps may never lose a shootout ever again!
