Nylander on the trading block?

The Sporting News thinks so, according to this article.

Considering that the Caps have three elite centers in Nylander, Fedorov and Backstrom and that Nylander's contract has a no-trade-clause, it seems doubtful.

With so many centers in Hersey and Washington, it is possible that the Caps will want to make room for a younger player but it probably won't come from trading Nylander. Fedorov is only signed for a one year deal and he will likely retire/leave the team allowing a Hersey center to move up to the Caps.

Of course we will know how true this rumor is if Nylander's house ends up for sale just like Olie's did.
