Caps aren't dressing Witt tonight as a precaution. Looks like he's as good as gone from Washington.
He is gonna be a King, we need a defenseman.

I"m very curious to see if Bert ends up in another sweater. There's been so much rumor, and then rumor quashing and then more rumor......

I'm willing to bet at least 6-8 teams will be after Witt.

Looks like the Leafs are buyers...they acquire defensemen Luke Richardson from the BJs for a 5th rounder.

One day after saying the condition of its leading goal scorer had improved, the Avalanche sent right wing Marek Svatos back to Denver on for further tests on his ailing right shoulder. Denver Post

I've heard that the Sens aren't truly interested...their G.M. is just trying to drive up the price. I believe I got that from spectorshockey.net.

Rangers will not trade Korpi or Staal, so that ends a lot of trade talks.

Is Washington specifically looking for a young defensemen? With the lack of quality defensive prospects in their system, the Avs cannot afford to give up Liles. I'm willing to bet he ends up in Nashville or LA; both teams have quality defensive prospects.

No, they're lacking someone who projects out as a #1 in the future, but they were never going to get that for Witt. They've got more then enough quality, especially since it looks like Eminger, Morrisson, and Green will be half of their defensive corps until they hit UFA age and some others who will be given a chance next year. McPhee wants a young roster player or someone who will be NHL-ready next season. Don't know if he'll end up getting that, but that's what he's asking for. I don't think McPhee is specifically looking for a certain position when looking for Witt's return.

The Kings acquire Parrish/ Sopel for Grebeshkov/ Tambellini.

I would guess the Kings are out of the Witt sweepstakes.

Yep, probably sets the market for Witt too. That's not a bad return for the Isles.

I like the trade for both teams; quality going each way.
