Not sure what could possibly posses them to consider trading him. Especially these days, true power forwards who put up the very good numbers he does are exceptionally rare (possibly extinct). Also already has line chemistry. Unless he asks for a crazy number, don’t trade.

Aside from Craig Smith, Conor Sheary and Martin Fehervary, the Caps don’t have many players to re-sign this summer.
Quebec’s Anthony Mantha is the subject of a few rumours, as he has just one year left on his $5.7 million contract and no longer seems to be part of the team’s plans.
Despite the fact that the Capitals are still trying to remain a contender, there are a few teams who would be curious about Wilson’s availability.
Tom Wilson is entering the final year of his contract. Contract extension talks with the #AllCaps haven’t started yet, and while the Caps want to remain a playoff contender, there are some teams curious if Washington would consider moving him.

However, a player of Wilson’s calibre is still very attractive, as ” power forwards ” who can easily score 20-25 goals while disrupting the opposition are in short supply.
That’s why some teams would like to know if Washington would be open to trading Wilson.
The majority of Capitals fans don’t seem to agree with the option of trading the 6-foot-4, 220-pounder.
Tom Wilson is an essential part of the present and future of the Washington Capitals, moving on from him shouldn’t even be an option for this team #ALLCAPS

Of course, Capitals general manager Brian MacLellan isn’t looking to get rid of his power forward either. Given the interest in this type of player, if MacLellan is looking to trade him, he’s likely to ask for a pretty hefty price.
Just add a Tom Wilson to teams like the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Carolina Hurricanes, or even the New Jersey Devils. He’d complement talented finesse players with his intense, physical game, and the face of that franchise would change dramatically.
Even if the chances of him making a move are very slim, he’s still a “think again”.
