    Regardless, Ovi joins Gretzky, Lemieux, and Orr as the only players to win Conn Smythe and 3+ Hart trophies. Not bad company.

    Two big contracts mismanaged by Wash DC sports teams in recent months. First the Redskins fail to resign Kirk Cousins, their best home grown quarterback in generations. Now the Capitals won't give a pay raise to Barry Trotz and lose the coach who took them to the first Stanley Cup Championship in team history?? Seems to me to be short sighted and placing money over loyalty.

    On a local note - Andrew Shaw's wife had a baby girl this morning....Andy she's called.

    Max Domi is going to be interesting...
    No news yet from the Belleville Senators regarding a new GM.

    Last post on this subject until next season;-o

    For posterity, these are quotes from various Capitals players at the victory celebration on the Wash DC Mall a few days after they won the 2018 NHL Stanley Cup Championship:


    Ovi: 1.a. “Look at this people who’s here. You know, like you thought it was gonna be crazy but it’s basically nuts.”

    1.b. “You guys keeling it.”


    2. "We not gonna be effing suck this year."

    3. “We’re Stanley Cup champions! Yeahhhh!”


    Tom Wilson: "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but we brought the cup home!"


    Evgeny Kuznetsov: "F... this s..."


    T. J. Oshie: "We love you, and there’s been a lot of chants. We got a new one for you today: Back to back!"


    Nicklas Backstrom: "Finally, we started playing hockey like we can party."

    Bruins Sign Frozen Four MVP Karson Kuhlman.

    "But before you get the idea that Kuhlman is by himself in Boston, he's not. Former Cloquet-Esko-Carlton, New Jersey Devils, Dallas Stars and U.S. Olympic captain Jamie Langenbrunner works for the Bruins in player development — and he had his eye on Kuhlman." -- Source: Kuhlman signs with NHL
