Martin Erat of the Washington Capitals is still seeking to get traded.
Capitals GM George McPhee is working on Erat’s trade request.
Quote from McPhee:
“I don’t think that’s going to change,” McPhee said of Erat’s request. “I’ll talk to him when he gets back and if he still wants to be traded, we’ll try to accommodate him.
“It’s been a difficult year with transactions. Had this been a typical year we might have been able to move him within weeks of his request, but that wasn’t the case this year.”
The Nashville Predators have an interest in bringing back Erat.
