Caps Acquire Carman and Marshall

by Corey Pronman

Per Mike Vogel,

#Caps swing a pair of minor deals: F Matt Ford to Philly for D Kevin Marshall and D Danny Richmond to Colorado for C Mike Carman.

I have no idea who Ford or Richmond are, mostly because nobody in the industry has ever mentioned their names to me or indicated they were worth knowing.

Marshall I think is the best piece here, and I say that as conservatively as I can. He’s a very physical defensive defenseman with marginal offensive upside and is ok in his own end. A likely projection is a #7, but may top out as an ok 6.

Carman last year I thought had a good shot to be a 4th line energy player in the NHL, but he hasn’t progressed as I would have hoped. For a 6′0 player not sure he has the speed/size combo needed for that role considering he has very little skill or hockey sense.
