The Capitals again have Micheal Nylander on the sidelines for now 4 straight games. Joining him is John Erskine. Both could be the ones the Capitals are considering trading.
In talking with some Western Conference people an interesting name popped up. Edmonton's Erik Cole was apparently asked about from several teams and the Caps are rumored to be one of them. Now that it may look like Marian Gaborik will stay in Minnesota or be traded to LA, the Caps may look for Cole's speed and play making ability to set up second line scoring.
Another rumor that will not quit is Chris Pronger. In exchange could be a first round pick, prospect player and a contract player now. Take your pick, Erskine or Nylander?
