Well so much for my grand plan of Caps GM George McPhee acquiring Anaheim defenseman Chris Pronger at the deadline today as TSN is reporting here that they will not trade him:
The only good news in all of this is that no other team in the East will get the services of this outstanding defensemen. The bad news is there is one less defensemen for McPhee to go after. I imagine GMGM is in the Derrick Morris sweepstakes big time now. Prices are going to go up on all fronts with the low number of teams selling.
