As the CSN Washington reports, Hamrlik has gotten on coach Dale Hunter's bad side recently with unsatisfactory showings on the ice and then for publicly criticizing his coach. The 37-year-old has one year left on the two-year, $7 million contract he signed with the Caps last summer.
Knuble, who has struggled this season posting only three goals and nine assists for 12 points in 57 games, is in the last year of his contract and set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.
Although most of the top names in the market have been either snatched up or have been re-signed to extensions, the Caps could possibly acquire some immediate offensive help for Hamrlik.
However, McPhee probably wouldn't land much more than a third- or fourth-round pick for Knuble, who could potentially decide to call it a career.
