Corvo's had a tough year to say the least, but if he can get his game back on track by playoff time, he could represent a huge upgrade on the Caps blueline, especially on the PP.
I like this trade for the caps.
they have the number 1 PP in the league.
they have the 25th PK in the league.
They need a defensive defenseman, not corvo.
