No Trades for Caps
3:00 p.m. today was the deadline for NHL teams to trade players for the remainder of this season. The Caps elected not to make any last-minute trades. There had been rumors the Caps would try to get a veteran defenseman on the roster, such as Anaheim's Chris Pronger. Turns out the price was too high, so the Capitals' General Manager George McPhee decided not to pursue the trade.
