I do appreciate the Walter mention, an interesting comparison to ponder for long time caps fans.
I was really disheartened when they traded Walter and Rick Green (no relation) to the Canadiens. Couldn't understand the deal at the time as they were two of the stars of the team and I believe Ryan may even had been the Captain at the time of the trade. Walter seemed to be a great teammate and locker room guy. Use to watch the practices at Ft. Dupont (no one or very few came to watch the Caps practices back then and in that neighborhood). Walter coming off the ice would always talk with the people there.
