    GM Jason Botterill indicating that a culture change is coming in Sabreland. A 28 year old Vezina winner would go a long way towards that. What's the ask Caps fans?

    Holtby is hopefully going nowhere. And if he is, hopefully it's to Edmonton. ;)

    Mittelstadt for Holtby, Orpik and Trotz (culture trifecta).

    You get Dahlin and Trotz makes you a defense and goaltending oriented club and Orpik whips your young defensemen into shape and you make the playoffs with a ~2 GAA guaranteed.

    Caps should keep Holtby because Grubauer freaking sucks.

    Grubauer should be cheaper after this playoff experience unless he is still played and turns it around. Thus Id rather trade for him. I like them both and both would be an upgrade on anything Buffalo has with Ullmark being a big wildcard in the whole picture.

    Id probably offer the SJC Evander Kane conditional pick for either. Holtby is under a hefty contract for only 2 years so his value cant be that high. Grubauer I am a fan of but these playoffs he has not shown up so it would help in getting him for smaller return IMO.

    Buffalo is better off making an attempt at getting Cory Schneider.

    Buffalo is better off not overpaying for a goalie.

    Bingo.

    Ullmark is the goalie next year. With some improvement up front that is all you need. The culture and locker room will improve when Lehner is gone. To me he was more a problem in the Lockerroom than E. Kane was.

    A young rebuilding team like Buffalo isn't gonna trade away Casey M a top prospect.

    And a competing team like the Capitals aren't going to trade their solid young Goalies for the sake of getting worse, either the deal improves the Caps or they don't make that deal, it's pretty simple actually.

    The Caps aren’t undoing the Forsberg for old broken wheel trade.

    It is simple, hence why there is a topic trying to find out if there is a win-win. Doesn’t mean Washington is getting the top three prospect in the league.

    Of course. I have yet to see any Sabres fans make an offer in a topic they created.

    Not particularly, but I don't think anyone is counting on him to shoulder the load next year.

    I bet Grubauer is the one that ends up getting traded after his poor showing in the playoffs so far.

    They won't have to call him up, he'll be on the team. Otherwise he'd have to clear waivers.
