NHL Trade Rumors: Could Jason Arnott Be Traded To Capitals Before NHL Trade Deadline?

It seems likely that the Washington Capitals are looking around the league for a second-line center to add to the team prior to the NHL Trade Deadline on Monday. It also seems likely that Jason Arnott of the New Jersey Devils will be moved, since he's an unrestricted free agent. Would these two sides be a good match?

We think so.

Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reported today that Arnott will be moving somewhere tomorrow whether the Devils win or lose tonight. He even went so far as to name the Capitals as a possible destination.

And according to the Newark Star-Ledger, Arnott may even request a trade out of New Jersey.

"Maybe a little bit," Arnott admitted Saturday ... "I've thought about [tonight being his last game with the Devils]," he said. "It will be disappointing, but it's part of the game, part of the business because of the hole we dug ourselves at the beginning of the year."

It seems to be nothing more than rumors and pure speculation at the moment that Washington would be the team to make a move with the Devils to acquire Arnott. But they could be as good a fit as anyone else.

We'll keep you updated in this StoryStream as this or any other deals develop over the next 21 hours.
