Capitals Rumors: 2 Possible Landing Spots for Anthony Mantha

The Washington Capitals have been actively shopping Anthony Mantha, but they have not found a taker. This is understandable, as he just had a rough season and carries a large cap hit. However, with sweeteners added, things could change on that front soon. As a result, let's discuss two possible landing spots for the winger. 

Chicago Blackhawks: The Chicago Blackhawks have not been afraid to take on bad contracts to earn themselves draft picks and/or prospects. Thus, they stand out as a strong landing spot for Mantha. He also would have the chance to bounce back if there, too, as he would likely have a top-six role if acquired. With the Blackhawks also needing to give Bedard some help, maybe they look toward Mantha if a sweetener or two is added.

Anaheim Ducks: The Anaheim Ducks are another rebuilding team with cap space. Due to this, they also make sense as a possible landing spot for Mantha if sweeteners are added. He would provide their middle six with a boost and could see his numbers go up a bit more following the change of scenery.
