Michael Neuvirth request a trade from the Capitals


This season Neuvirth has played in just seven games, posting a .912 save percentage and 2.83 goals against average. But back in 2010-11 he was the No. 1 guy and played in 48 games with a .914 save percentage, 2.45 GAA. He then played nine playoff games with similar numbers. He's still just 25 years old and a few years ago it looked like he was going to be the Caps' goalie for the future. Question is if any team thinks he can be their top goalie down the line.

Neuvirth last dressed for an NHL game on Nov. 29, when he was scheduled to start against the Montreal Canadiens at Verizon Center. Yet as he took the ice for pregame warmups, he stepped on a puck and injured his Achilles, forcing him out of the game before it even began. The following day, the Capitals recalled Philipp Grubauer, who has since started seven of their past 10 games and forced Neuvirth out of the team's goaltending rotation.
