Dennis Wideman has been traded from the Florida Panthers to the Washington Capitals for a third round pick and forward Jake Hauswirth. The up-tempo, offensive minded Capitals system may suit Wideman very favorable. Also going to the capitals is Marco Sturm, who was claimed off waivers on Friday.
Former Bruin and one time 40 goal scorer, Brad Boyes, has also been traded back to the Northeast Division. Boyes goes to Buffalo for a second round pick. Also making news today is defenseman Mark Stuart who was inked to a 3 year $5.1 million contract extension.
