Metro was cool. He wasn't boisterous or anything, but he talked about his Caps days while the other guys did the pics. He seemed to appreciate me saying that table was the three guys I want out to kill a 5-on-3. Like I said, he signed 5 things for us, too. He was the only player who did so.
I wondered on the drive home if it's a blow to the ego to be the third wheel with the top defense pairing, though. The groupings are usually a big name and a lesser name. He was with Coburn and Timonen (two biggies). Sure, he hasn't been around here long, but he'd have been the second if he was part of Knuble's trio, or most any other group.
Maybe the folks who didn't have as good of an experience with Metro were behind someone who may have said something stupid to him. Who knows?
He was good to me and my kids (and my dad with the extra autograph). That's all I could hope for.
