Might the Caps hang on to Green?

There's been speculation all season that the Washington Capitals would look to move defenseman Mike Green prior to the deadline, owing to his impending UFA status and their expenditures elsewhere at the position. However, there's now insight that the club may, in fact, hang on to the offensive whiz.

"I can't see Caps trading Green," former Capitals AGM Frank Provenzano noted in our deadline chat. "He is finally in the right role in Washington. Everyone looks at getting a return for UFA contracts. Playing in the playoffs is a return. I always felt the cheapest rental players at the deadline were the ones you already had."

Jokinen’s pre-deadline dream

You know Olli Jokinen is just dying for his phone to ring before the clock strikes 3 p.m. ET on Monday. After getting the boot from the contending Nashville Predators as part of a recent trade package, the veteran forward is stuck in a situation with which he’s all too familiar: Playing for a team with little (read: zero) aspiration of making the postseason. Having participated in only six playoff games in his entire NHL career, the 36-year-old can only hope his stint with the Toronto Maple Leafs is exceptionally brief.

Fortunately, everyone’s on the same page same page in Toronto. With little use for a UFA-to-be in the twilight of his career, the rebuilding Leafs are doing their best to showcase Jokinen in hopes of getting something -- anything, really -- in return. And while the veteran won’t top most contenders’ trade wish lists, he could fill a hole somewhere, once other -- more sought-after -- assets are spoken for.

Interest in Stewart

After months of chatter and speculation, we may finally see Chris Stewart join a new club. Hours ahead of Monday’s trade deadline, ESPN Insider Craig Custance reports the Buffalo Sabres are still getting calls -- including some new ones -- in regards to the power forward.

“A couple new teams have called on Chris Stewart in last 48 hours to check price. Boston continues to be in the mix. Nothing close now.”

While a trade may not be imminent, ESPN’s Scott Burnside suggests Stewart has enough upside to attract an offer acceptable to the Sabres before the deadline passes.

"He has shown in pretty small sample that he has an 'A' game, which means crashing the net, scoring and generally banging around in the offensive zone. One executive told us he doesn't care that Stewart isn't probable to be a long-term option given the wild fluctuations in his game, but playing for a contract over a short period of time, like the playoffs, he would be interested in his services.”
