Nylander to Montreal, Guerin to Washington?

According to Ron Fournier of CKAC, the Montreal Canadiens and the Washington would be talking about a deal to send Michael Nylander to Montreal…
Still according to Fournier, the deal would send versatile player Mathieu Dandenault to Washington which would free enough money for the Caps to take on Bill Guerin’s contract and complete their trade with the NYIslanders

From another source: according to David Pagnotta the Capitals have found a taker for Michael Nylander. He reportedly will NOT be in the lineup tonight and will likely be moved at tomorrow’s deadline. As reported earlier this is the cap space they needed to clear to pick up Bill Guerin.

    I think you shouldn't hold back so much… You should tell us how you really feel.

    Sidney Crosby
    Jordan Staal
    Anze Kopitar
    Alexander Frolov
    Drew Doughty

    It would be like Gretzky back to LA.. ?
    Its obvious that Malkin or Crosby won't be moved… at least not this year, but how does this deal look?

    Anyway I did hear a rumor earlier in the week that the Kings had considered moving Frolov for Staal straight up but Lombardi has since confirmed that Frolov's character and play have picked up as of late and the trade is no longer in consideration.

    frolov is very underrated player, good deal but i dont klnow if la could give up so much talent   and if pit could trade sid very tought

     1. why would Montreal help out Washington?
     2. Montreal does not have enough Cap space to take on Nylander by only getting rid of Dandenault.
     3. Not going to happen

  6. DoubleDown says:

    yeah, but why let sound logic and good hockey sense get in the way of a good rumour?

  7. Burgergold says:

    Nylander to MTL for Dandenault or any salary dump has been denied

  8. alpalstewart says:

    both these players would help the penguins but i don't see either of them making a big difference on the caps or the canadians.

  9. alpalstewart says:

    i did'nt think so. it just makes no sense

    Weird cuz earlier today on my blog I listed Washington as one of 2 possible destinations for Guerin (Montreal the other). And I listed Nylander going to Chicago or you guessed it: Montreal.

    I'm on fire today
