Firesale continues in Washington

New, comment

The Florida Panthers are stocked with young talent (but rumors of financial peril and relocation are around) and will be a force to deal with in the future...

The Atlanta Thrashers are on the verge -- if injuries and consistency didn't cause problems for them, they would have kept the Southeast division a tight race....

The Carolina Hurricanes are treading water, in the division -- down for a while and then back up before heading down again....

And what of the Washington Capitals?

With a payroll that was out-of-this-world and a lack of wins to show for it, the fire running rampant through the Capitals lineup continues as Robert Lang -- the co-leader of points earned in the NHL, was sent to the Detroit Red Wings in exchange for prospects and draft picks...

Rebuilding can really be a bitch, Washington fans... You probably know it better than I do -- even though I and other Tampa Bay fans, had been living it for years after a sole playoff appearance in the mid-1990's.

Who and what will be left in DC by the time March 9th comes around? Your guess is as good as mine...
