I’ve blogged that the Caps need another Defenseman to help Mike Green – I ranked it, at the time, the Cap’s #3 need. Since that blog, Green has suffered a nagging head injury and Tom Poti continues on the IR; thus, moving a lower priority to the top of the list!
The Caps traded for Dennis Wideman of the Florida Panthers. They give up Jake Hanswirth and a 3rd round pick in the 2011 draft. The Caps get a suitable substitute for Green, on the power play.
