Is Antropov an Option for Caps?

With it look like Antropov is heading out of Toronto, would he be a good fit for the Caps.  With Clark on LTIR there is probably some cash that can be used to bring in some depth and Antropov's cap hit is probably only about $700K (he full year salary is $2M).

The question then becomes, how does he fit in?  Right now the common lines are OV-Fedorov-Kozlov, Laich-Backstrom-Semin, Flash-Nylander-Fehr.  I see the value in him as providing front line depth.  Right now Kozlov is out, Steckel becomes third line center which drops offensive potential.  Would it not be nice just to plug Antropov into the first line right winger spot.  I believe one of our weaknesses is insurance for the top 2-3 lines.  Antropov may be a good addition, and I think you can get him for a draft pick in the 2nd-3rd round range.

Thoughts?
