Caps Trade for Shattenkirk
The Capitals pulled off a major trade for Kevin Shattenkirk. The Capitals sent their 2017 first round pick, conditional picks, and Sanford to the Blues for the defensemen. The Capitals were already major cup contenders this year, but the addition of Shattenkirk will make them much more dangerous. His ability on the power play could get them over the hump in the playoffs. His is in the last year of his deal and will demand a lot of money once the season ends, but this move is a win now by the Caps. If they fail this postseason I don’t know what it will take to win a cup.
