I don’t see the Caps going after a top 4 defenseman, their top 4 barring injury is solid and demonstrated last year that they can win with.  As in years past I expect that the Caps will add a depth defenseman and will give up a middle round draft choice to get one.


At this point I’ll take an AVERAGE D man, as long as his strength is D, not O! Decent on bringing puck up, average puck possession, average passing ability, but above average hockey IQ!
I don’t know if it’s out there or not, or whether a guy like that would even be a fair trade for Bura, even-Steven!


I do know that league wide, a solid, reliable defense – type defenseman,  is RARE, and would be in high demand!!


One thing that was key to the change in our game, in last years playoffs, and Stanley, was that practically every forward and center, contributed immensely, by playing more RESPONSIBLE defense!!
This assisted our blue liners, who also “bought in” to it, as well!  It was infectious!!

I see a lot of Burkovsky's sticks up for sale/auction from the Caps, coincidence?

Of course another angle on Bura’s sticks is they just keep piling up, because NOBODY has put in a bid on them!😂😂🤣🤣😊

I read somewhere, can’t remember where, that the Caps are shopping Burakovsky but if they can’t get a player they want for him and teams are only offering draft picks they will wait for the offseason and trade him before the draft.  That makes sense I guess.

It has nothing to do with the roster and contracts being a mess.  If you can’t trade him for someone you want then don’t trade him at this point.  Why give him away for somebody you don’t need or want.

This is absolute confirmation of a trade for sure - way better than any reporter generated rumor.  The Caps don't leave a nickel on the table.


I don't really care what they get for him. I'm not as worried about our D as everyone else.  I think we are in the mid-season slump after winning a Stanley Cup and that we will see improvement in Nisky, Orlov and Bowey/Seigenthaler.  I actually would like to see them keep developing Bowey as I think he has the best long term potential.

Yeah, and who wouldn’t  give the defending champs, with hardly any cap cap room, a bunch of bad contracts, and few RFAs coming up, what they want for an inconsistent 22(?) yo headcase?

What I think is going to happen is that he will be traded at the draft for a 2nd or 3rd round pick unless he is included in some sort of package for a player we want before the trade deadline.
