Deal No. 2: Caps get center Eric Belanger

An hour after getting tougher and more experienced on the wing by adding Scott Walker, the Caps have picked up center Eric Belanger from the Minnesota Wild for a second-round pick.

The 32-year-old Quebec native had 13 goals and 22 assists in 60 games with the Wild. Like Walker, his contract ($1.75 million) is also due to expire in July. He came up through the Los Angeles system and played for Coach Bruce Boudreau in AHL Lowell.

Although there's an hour to go, and more moves could be coming, today's acquisitions could mean some hurt feelings in a tight dressing room that boasted about its chemistry.
