The Washington Capitals cleared cap space today, dealing right winger Eric Fehr to the Winnipeg Jets in exchange for a fourth round pick in 2012 and minor league right winger Daniel Paquette.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Guess we’ll have to put the Alex Semin or Mike Green trade rumors on hold for the time being. Dealing away Fehr clears his $2.2 million salary for next season from the Capitals books, putting them barely under the cap again with $63.9 million. They still however have to re-sign Karl Alzner, which could mean another trade, unless Tom Poti is placed on LTIR to start next season, or retires.
