    They were willing to take Orpik for a short time, they offered a higher 2nd round pick but Caps did not want to trade Grubauer to a Metro rival team. They would have traded Orpik to finish the deal.

    And the Avs are either going to flip Orpik or buy him out if they don’t find a dance partner.

    Apparently Sakic had the class to call Orpik and tell him that immediately after the deal was done. That's a nice move.

    Oh, and for the record DeCock tweeted that Carolina WAS willing to take on Orpik's contract and offered Washington basically the same deal at Colorado with a slightly better pick, but the Caps didn't want to trade Grubie within the Division if they had an alternative. Makes sense. And make no mistake, Carolina would have dumped Orpik as well.

    It might take until the first round of free agent decisions get made next weekend. In fact, I think that's probably what's going to happen.
