Caps Complete Blockbuster. Acquire McDavid.
July 16, 2019
There are times when you throw out a name when you begin trade negotiations. A pretty good proportion of the time you feel like there is no way the other GM would possibly consider moving that player.

When Washington GM Bachul threw out the name Connor McDavid there was zero expectation that a conversation would be started let alone the framework for a deal.

But that isn't what happened. "Forbsey surprised me a little bit there." said Bachul. "I asked him what it would take and he actually came back to me with what he thought the deal might be. After a little bit of back and forth I knew I just had to pull the trigger."

Leaving the Caps is Russian center Evgeny Kuznetsov as well as talented rookie Andrei Svechnikov as well as Dallas' first-rounder in the upcoming draft.

"These opportunities rarely come up and when one presents itself you have to feel bold enough to make the moves. We would like to welcome Connor to the nation's capital and look forward to a great season in red white and blue."
