Dennis Wideman: Traded to Flames
Update: The Capitals have traded Wideman to the Flames for a fifth-round pick in the 2013 NHL draft along with defenseman Jordan Henry, the Associated Press reports.

Recommendation: Wideman was eligible to become an unrestricted free agent July 1, but he agreed to a five-year deal with the Flames on Wednesday, so he's in Calgary to stay. Wideman, who had 11 goals and 35 assists in 82 games for the Caps last season, is a productive puck-moving defenseman, who should provide a boost to the Flames' power play.
