[Trade] Red Wings trade Anthony Mantha to Capitals for Jakub Vrana, Richard Panik, 2021 1st-round pick, 2022 2nd-round pick


Recommended Posts

Makes sense for the Caps though, Vrana was due for a handsome raise after back to back 24 and 25 goal seasons, and they've other decisions to make. Panik's been on their taxi squad. 

 

Samsonov is due for a raise. Mantha's a sure thing capwise whereas Vrana's tougher to predict, but Mantha's still young enough to be a solid piece going forward.

 

Maybe Ovi taking a pay cut makes their cap work going forward.

Wow.  I think Mantha had been languishing with the Red Wings - his numbers are much lower than where they could be.  This is a huge splash for the Caps and will hopefully rejuvenate Mantha who is still quite young.  At $5.7M for a few more years this could be very solid for the Caps for awhile.

Vrana was also a complete no-show in the playoffs, 2 years in a row.

He got a ring out of Washington's cup run, he can't complain too much

Weaponizing cap space during a rebuild.

 

Apparently it's good enough for Stevie Y, but not good enough for us.

 

OK :)

How many Mantha's did we have to giveaway in our rebuild?
