Capitals Rumors: 2 Potential Landing Spots for T.J. Oshie

The Washington Capitals have had a poor start to the season and were handed tough news with Nicklas Backstrom taking an indefinite leave of absence. Due to this, the Caps have a real shot of being sellers this season, and T.J. Oshie has been picking up steam as a trade candidate. Let’s discuss two potential landing spots for him now.

Seattle Kraken: The Kraken could use a boost in their lineup, so it would make sense for them to look into a veteran winger like Oshie. He would fit into their top six and be a big addition to their power play. Thus, don’t be surprised if they pursue him from here.

New York Islanders: The Islanders are going to look for help on the wing this offseason, so they could consider targeting Oshie. He would improve their top nine and give them a bit more experience. Although division-rival trades can sometimes be hard to make, trading Oshie to the Isles would make sense if the Caps commit to a legitimate retool or even rebuild.
