The Capitals have placed top center Nicklas Backstrom on the long term injured list, freeing up some room under the salary cap as today’s 3 p.m. trading deadline approaches.
The move would give General Manager George McPhee about $7.6 million to work with, but only if Backstrom is out for the rest of the season. Given that the 24-year old Swede has missed 25 games with a concussion and has skated for only five minutes over the past 52 days, that doesn’t seem like too much of a stretch.
