Gotta be the only move the Capitals make. It adds D depth which was the only true "weakness" of the team. They're locked and loaded.

He's such a scrub. I find it hard to believe they couldn't have found a better depth D.

But apparently they're also looking at Scott Gomez (http://thehockeywriters.com/scott-gomez-on-the-radar-for-capitals/).

Mike Richards redemption seems to have worked out ok for them so that might be a good way to add some 4th line type depth without having to give up any assets. Say what you will about Gomez but it seems like he's worked really hard to stay at the NHL level and could be a good example for some younger guys of the type of work ethic it takes

If anything, he'll be the locker room clown to keep the room light when they inevitably face adversity in the playoffs, as is tradition with the Capitals.

Come playoff time you never know when a blocked shot results in needing an extra D
