An NHL insider just revealed a potential trade brewing which would return this Capital's winger back to his hometown team.

Mantha Linked to Canadiens in Potential Trade

NHL insider David Pagnotta just dropped some massive news, stating that the Montreal Canadiens and the Washington Capitals have been engaged in trade talks.
"I'm told that the Habs indeed had a conversation with the Washington Capitals about Anthony Mantha and that forward Joel Armia was part of the discussion." - Pagnotta

Pagnotta confirms that the Capitals could be willing to part ways with Anthony Mantha, who is from Longueuil, just outside of Montreal. It's likely the 29-year-old would be more than willing to return home to play for the Canadiens.

Is Mantha for Armia a Worthwhile Trade?

The Capitals looking to part ways with Mantha is more of a sign that they are looking to create cap room than anything. Mantha carries a $5.7 million hit for this year and is a free agent after that. Armia, on the other hand, has two years left on a deal with a $3.4 million AAV.

The two players are of similar age and have similar point productions in their previous seasons. Mantha scored .4 points per game, while Armia recorded .3. Neither played a full season with their respective teams.
Do you think it is worth a trade for either team?
