Drew Stafford To Washington Capitals?

No more deals can be submitted to the National Hockey League, but the trade review team must be overwhelmed.

We are now an hour past trade deadline, and rumors are still being reported.

With Jason Pominville the only move reported, and that is not official yet – Drew Stafford’s name has been added to the rumor list.

Has Darcy Regier pulled the trigger on another trade sending Stafford and his four million dollar cap hit to the Washington Capitals?

Stafford said earlier he would welcome a trade out of Buffalo if the team deemed it necessary.  A change in scenery would be good for both.

If the Buffalo Sabres and Washington Capitals agreed in principle on the deal late in the day, the league could still be reviewing the terms and is slow to announcing the deal.

With no official word on the Pominville deal yet, it is not outside the realm of possibility that a Stafford deal could be in the works.

What will we get back from Washington?

**Edited 4:39PM – Smoke and Mirrors rumor.  Buffalo Sabres only trade of the day will be the Jason Pominville move.
