Trade Alert - Daniel Winnik to the Capitals

That's right Daniel Winnik is traded again by the Maple Leafs.  This is the second time.  The first time was to the Penguins.  After the rental he went back to the Maple Leafs.

Daniel Winnik is currently at 56 games for the season.  He has 4 goals and 10 assists for  total of 14 points.  I don't think his stats really do him justice.  He is great on the penalty kill.  He is known as a bit of a grinder.  He has low penalty minutes as well.  16 for the season.

In exchange the Maple Leafs get veteran Brooks Laich and Connor Carrick.  Plus on top of that a 2nd round draft pick.  Brooks Laich comes with a contract for the rest of this season and next.  Its for a reported 4.5mil.

So who won this deal?

Daniel Winnik did.  He is going to the play offs. The Maple Leafs are not... The Capitals however have a pretty good chance at the Stanley Cup this season.
