Although I'm feeling very warm in the sweltering heat up here in Canada I'm still thinking about Washington Capitals hockey now that development camp is done maybe we can take a bit of a breather on hockey for a few weeks and enjoy the sunshine.
I'm watching the highlights of the Capitals development scrimmages and feeling hopeful that the kids, all capitals prospects, can somehow find their way onto the team (at least the best of them) so that we can reinforce our NHL team and win the Stanley Cup.
I'm blown away by Ilya Koval huk's decision to retire and walk away from $77 million to sign in Russia for about the same amount I cannot understand how you can do a deal and then just walk away from it.
Okay I get it Alfie I'm not angry at you anymore for leaving the Senators I just don't think the Red Wings are the best choice for you but at your age with limited chances at the cup I can understand now and I can empathize with the fact that you have chosen to not remain loyal to those Sens fans who love you so much.I spoke to someone on a blind call - a friend and told him "Hi, it's Daniel Alfredson and I'm calling to say I'm sorry" - he hung up.
I'm feeling relief at Washington Capitals general manager George McPhee not drinking the Kool-Aid of the expensive agents as opposed to free agents. I cannot believe people are paying 5 million a year for seven years for Clarkson type players I'm just relieved that my team is not being stupid in this silly season.
