I look forward to that too, though I understand that the "you can't name everybody, so just make general remarks" approach. I was more surprised that Oates didn't have much of anything to say about his time in Washington. He talked Blues and Bruins, a little Wings, and even mentioned some particular Ducks. He made a comment or two about WAS, but that was it. Didn't call any Caps out by name, as far as I remember.
