    This is a huge win for the Caps. Gudas is actually a good defender, albeit one marred by his runins with DoPS. Niskanen is in a steep decline.

    I don't know if you can call it a "huge" win for anyone. I can't imagine either player having a big impact.

    I mean, you can get hung up on that, if you want, but Gudas is clearly an upgrade, even if it's marginal. Especially with the Flyers eating 30% of his deal. I'd take Gudas — who is actually good in his own end — at $2.345M x1 over Niskanen at $5.75M x 2 any day.

    Plus, given AV is now coaching the Flyers, I wouldn't be so quick to assume Niskanen won't be pretty heavily relied on. I'd imagine he and MacDonald are going to playing a lot more than Flyers fans are hoping they will.

    I don't think Gudas is as good as you do, I guess.

    If Niskanen ends up playing big minutes for AV, his contract won't be as painful.

    Flyers going soft.
    Gudas/Wilson on the ice at the same time.

    Except it will because he's not good, and every time he's on the ice the Flyers are gonna get shelled. Just like the Caps did with him there.

    But that's a good thing for the Rangers, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Hahahahaha.
    At first I didn't understand this move, but then I remembered that AV will be in PHI, so Gudas, a player with some balls, is on the way out.
    LGR!
