5 gone, 2 to go??
According to TSN.ca, the Washington Capitals have traded yet another player…Veteran center Michal Nylander have been traded to the Boston Bruins in exchange for a 2nd round pick in 2006
Nylander missed 63 games with a broken leg before returning to the Capitals lineup on February 27. He’s expected to fill the role of No. 2 centre on the Bruins.
Last year, he scored 17 goals and 56 points in 71 games with the Capitals, including three goals and five points in six playoff games.
Goaltender Olaf Kolzig and defensemen Brendan Witt are also believed to be shopped by the Caps…
My take:Very good move by the B’s who solidify their 2nd line without moving someone from their roster. Nylander have always been an underated player and will help Boston alot.
