It would explain why we are far under the salary cap. It was also explain why Leonsis what a huge ******** during lockout negotiations (from what I've heard).

I'm trying to be reasonable about him. I think he just didn't plan on the Caps playing hockey. This shall be forever known as the lost season. It seems reasonable that he would try to plan ahead like this.


This is all a part of GMGM's master plan. The fact that the season actually happened was the curve ball he didn't see coming.

That or he's just incredibly dumb.
You mean like trading for a guy who is going to be a UFA at the end of this season whether we played or not (Ribiero)?
