finally got around to reading the caps eu-googly on puckdaddy. this line made me spit my beer on the screen.
"Using this eulogy to throw barbs directly at the Caps fan base would not be a good use of everyone's time. The Caps and Pens have been eliminated from the playoffs by the same team for the past two years. It would be like two guys fighting over a hot girl while that hot girl is getting plowed by some other guy."
We will never know for certain if his development wasnt stunted being stuck behind AHL superstar Alex Giroux all those years, now will we. All those top line minutes, and endless PP's he missed out on, fighting the goons the kid had to face on that 4th line, the beatings he took really, since he wasnt a good fighter.
Good for him, moving closer to home. The AHL didnt work out for him. I still believe that icing a winner in Hershey as an top org priority isn't always best for player development.
