Trade

Frankly, I'm not crazy about Arnott-Steckel deal. We give up Steckel, best faceoff man in the NHL and a 2012 second rounder for a guy who is certainly no better than Laich and we lose an excellent utility man in Steckel.  I'm not entirely convinced that this is even a short term gain and I'm not sure I'd have even done Steckel for Arnott straight up.

Wideman makes a bit more sense to me.  His +/- is awful, but he may be the spark they need on the power play and it was important to shore up the D a bit with the outlook on Green not being too great.

thoughts?  Does this improve the chances of the Caps making a serious Cup run?
