The Washington Capitals have traded goalie Jaroslav Halak to the New York Islanders for a fourth round pick. Halak is a pending unrestricted free agent who will likely command a five-million dollar contract next season. Meanwhile, the Caps have two talented young goaltenders in Holtby and Grubauer. Then again, Halak is a top-10 goalie and now he’ll be playing against the Caps in the Metro division. I wonder if he’ll be comfortable with that.
One more interesting note: we’ve learned who is calling the shots in the post-
With McPhee soon-to-be-former GM, assistant GM Brian MacLellan is handling trades, etc. for the #Caps.
