The club currently sits 13th in the Eastern Conference, four points out of a final wildcard spot.
In the tight race for a playoff spot, the Capitals could be significant players in the trade market before the March 5 deadline.
Mike Wise of the Washington Post argues the Caps need to shake up their roster if they want to make the playoffs, singling out defensemen Mike Green as potential trade bait.
In return for the former Norris Trophy candidate, the Caps could receive a tough veteran or defensive defenseman.
Green currently has one-year left on his contract. The defenseman has accumulated five goals and 22 assists so far this season and owns a minus-12 rating.
To date, the Caps hold a 23-21-9 record on the season.
