Huge overpayment this deadline. Love it and hate it. Don’t want play against that forward group. But the longer term health of Washington isn’t looking good.

Oh my god did Yzerman ever just make MacLellan his female dog.

Caps trying to make people forget the Erat/Forsberg deal, by making an even worse one.

Doubt it. His icetime was ridiculous in WAS, deserved more.

This is lining up to be worse than that.

Mantha is awesome, but holy poop was an overpay. Vrana himself is a pretty damn good player when he gets the ice time. Yzerman came through big time.

Caps are really going in on their "tough to play against" identity so I can see why they caved in and paid the price for a young power forward.

I wouldn't be surprised if they made an offer on Sam Bennett as well lol

Vrana is (was?) our fastest guy. This is actually painful.
Panik wasn't horrible either. To throw in those picks though is just ludicrous.

Young power forwards will always require an overpay

Calling Mantha a power forward is generous. I know he is massive but he is pretty soft and every time he gets in a fight he breaks his hand.

I agree that he's not really a "mean" player and doesn't really look to lay people out with hits but by today's standards, his size alone qualifies him as a power forward.

I'm not saying the Caps made the right move, even though I do like Mantha.

Vrana himself is a damn good player, I'd take Vrana and the picks for sure. Yzerman did very well here.

It's an overpay, but Mantha is signed for three more years at least.

Vrana always kills the Penguins with his speed so I am not sad to see him leave the division.

The Caps do this every once in a while and it defies any rational explanation. It really does not bother me anymore.

Vrana for Mantha heads up is pretty close. Including a 1st and a 2nd is such an overpayment.

Whoa. I know Vrana has been slumping a bit recently and found his way into the dog house for a brief period, but hot damn what a bad deal for Washington.

I mean, if I had my choice between those two straight up, I’d take Vrana right now!

And the picks on top?

Stevie Y, go treat yourself to a steak and a whisky, man.
