I didn't hear that, thanks for clueing me in. At first, I thought something was up with him physically, but then I just thought it was because he wasn't with Timonen, for the most part, this season.
I think he's played better of late (last three or four games) and at Washington he sure spent a lot of time below the Caps' circles, like last year (and unlike earlier this year). I have little doubt that he'll crank it up from here on out.
He's definitely looked better of late...which is a good thing for us on the ice, but a not so good thing when it comes to our cap. I said it last year, but he really needs to be priority #1 in the re-signing department.
