The forward has been injured more often than not in recent years and let's just say he is not having a great start to the season with only two points in eight games.
That being said, his name has been associated with several trade rumors over the past few months, including with the Canadiens, and as reported by Marco Normandin, du site Habsolumentfan.com, we nearly witnessed the conclusion of this matter in recent days.
According to Sportsnet's insider Elliotte Friedman, a trade involving the Capitals and the Vancouver Canucks recently fell through, and it involved Mantha and forward Conor Garland.
However, due to his salary, the Canucks were simply unable to fit him into their lineup.
Here are Friedman's explanations on this:
Just like the Capitals with Mantha, the Canucks are trying by all means to trade Garland to another team, but the organization seems unable to find a team with which to conclude a transaction because just like the Caps player, he has only gathered two small points since the beginning of the season.
Mantha is in his last contract year with an annual salary of $5.7 million while Garland has two more seasons with a salary slightly less than Mantha, at $4.95 million per year.
With such a trade, both teams would undoubtedly have resolved two hot issues, but in the end, the Capitals would have had to deal with Conor Garland for two more seasons, which may not be in the team's medium and long-term plans.
It will therefore be interesting to follow these two cases over the coming weeks and to see if Kent Hughes might be tempted by one of these two players.
If you were given the choice, which one of these two players would you like to have on your team?
|Connor Garland||98||50.3 %|
|Anthony Mantha||97||49.7 %|
