Nylander on the move?


With the team almost $2.7 million over the cap after re-signing a few players and a logjam up the middle (Fedorov, Kozlov, Backstrom, Laich, Steckel), it's hard not to speculate as to what General Manager George McPhee might have up his sleeve to get under the cap by opening night.

Take it for what it's worth but Michael Nylander put his Potomac house on sale on July 17. He had bought it in October 2007 when he signed a multi-year deal with the Capitals. Check this link: Washington Post
Nylander is coming at a cap hit of $4.875 million, so trading Nylander would make sense to get under the cap.

Nylander, 35, recorded 37 points in 40 points last season with the Caps before going down with a season-ending injury.

Vancouver could be the likely destination as Mike Gillis, the Canucks GM, is Nylander's former agent.... Stay tuned.

IMO, the Caps love Nylander and they are going to hang onto him.

Another Gillis client? I wonder where their loyalty will lie...with the coach or with the GM. Can you say soap opera?

On the other hand, his numbers prior to last season are pretty impressive, albeit with a loaded NYR team.

If Mccabe has Washington on the list I could see Nylander coming back for salary.
