Fantasy Analysis: The Capitals acquire Scott Walker from the Hurricanes for a seventh round draft pick.



The Caps get: a gritty, two-way leader and Band-Aid Boy with little in the way of proven playoff offense. All the same, they will welcome his leadership as long as he stays healthy.

The Canes get: a draft pick and some salary relief.

Fantasy Players Impacted. This really only impacts Eric Fehr, who struggles to get top-six and power-play time as it is. Now he'll struggle to get top-nine ice time.

Players this deal helps, in order:

1. Scott Walker

2. Jiri Tlusty

3. Drayson Bowman


Players this deal hurts, in order:

1. Eric Fehr

... How much does this hurt Fehr? I assume I shouldn't drop him for Walker.
