Capitals Possible Trade Rumors
Currently I am hearing from various sources that a trade has gone through for the Washington Capitals. No one knows who for sure. Best Speculation is that it is Chimera. GM George Mcphee has promised to have a press conference at 3:30PM EST, but the deal may not be complete until 4PM.
Chimera has been a member of the Washington Capitals since 2009 and has been a key role player in their recent post season runs, including the Presidents Trophy in 2009-2010.
Capitals have said to be in the need for another center to pair with Marcus Johansson and to create a deeper lines one through three. While the trade is uncertain whether it includes Chimera, many sources have reported his name as a possible dealing point for the Capitals moving forward.
