Ottawa defenseman Anton Volchenkov hits the open market on July 1 and its a no-brainer for the Capitals to be in the mix even though they have to free up some cap space (like dealing Alexander Semin).San Jose could also be in the mix following the retirement of Rob Blake.In The Sporting News, Craig Custance reports that the Sharks have some cap flexibility following Blakes departure and the impending departure of goalie Evgeni Nabokov.The Capitals, meanwhile, despite a first-round exit, are listed at 13-2 odds to win next years Stanley Cup.Seahawks And Albert
A couple of rumors have been floated that Seattle should beis interested in Redskins defensive linemanpain in the butt Albert Haynesworth.But the Seahawks will have to weigh the risk-reward something the Redskins obviously didnt do last year.Writes the 12th Man Rising blog: Haynesworth would immediately upgrade Seattles pass rush. As a three-technique defensive tackle in Seattles defense, rather than occupying blockers as the nose tackle in a three-man front, Haynesworth would be able to penetrate, slant, and attack.
