He was on my radar. The high output Capitals’ winger who was due to become an unrestricted free agent in the summer has signed another 1 year deal. I suppose one could argue this makes him more tradeable but I doubt it. The end of the CBA looms for players and franchises. This 1 year, reported $6.7 million dollar contract takes him to the CBA but not beyond it. It gives him flexibility to take a wait and see approach.

I am disappointed but, alas, disappointment builds character and we all know how Dean Lombardi covets character. Let that sentence tickle the roof of your brain for a while. GO KINGS!
