Short term yes. Ottawa is already leading the league in scoring. Bondra will just make the lead larger. Bondra is in the 3rd year of a 4 year
contract, with the 4th year an option. Ottawa is already strapped for cash, so he may just be there for a playoff run this year.
Long run, I think its better for the Caps, because if Ottawa does not pick up his option for the 4th year, the Caps could sign Bondra as a free agent
