WSH: Mantha & 2nd (2025)

MTL: Future Considerations

- WSH needs cap space now to improve their roster or their season will be over by U.S. Thanksgiving.

- MTL has plenty of cap space with injuries & LTIR relief.

- WSH is apparently in on Connor Garland, and getting rid of Mantha's full final year of 5.7M would provide the space necessary for this season.

They get cap space by moving Kuznetsov who requested a trade.

- it is absolutely possible that WSH moves Kuznetsov.

- I suspect it will be easier for WSH to move Mantha at 1 X 5.7M than Kuznetsov’s 2 X 7.8M.

- Kuznetsov’s NTC means he’ll have some say in where he ends up, whereas Mantha lacks any trade protection.

Regardless, it will be interesting to see what WSH does. They don’t seem to be as serious about making the playoffs as they are in getting Ovie to break the great one’s goals record.

Deadline most likely, full retention, I can see a team like Winnipeg or Dallas being interested.

Ovie isnoffnto a slow start, but is catching wind now. He'll pass gretz eventually, probably go the selanne pp specialist route at some point.

Good trade

HRENKLIN: I suspect WSH will be forced to make a move sooner than the deadline. My guess is WSH makes a move by mid-November to clear cap space and add missing parts to their lineup.

Also, I tend to agree with you that Ovie will pass the Great One. The organization is firmly dedicated to that, so it will happen at some point.

Washington season was over before it started, this is an aging team that hung on to long without injecting new life.
This organization seems content to get Ovi the record, but not be a contender.
They will have a shot at a top 5 pick this year however.
