If finally making the top 30% means your competing for CEO job in your mind, then I don't know what to say. Woooooo top 3rd! Next stop, penthouse!

I was more referring to the fact that we never even tried to build a decent team around a pretty special core. And now with half that core gone, it's on to phase 2. Which is off to an inauspicious start.

I know you were bcf.

And brs, he said it last offseason as well. Saying that maintaining value is most important thing. He admitted its was in terms of dollars AND making dc a hockey town. Those are his two risks. But they both center on being 'blowing' this opportunity by going for cup and ruining the sellouts.

where did leonsis say that he was "soley interested in ....dollars..."?

you dont understand my comments? i read these threads this thru the last couple of seasons and its just gets progressively worse. this fan base in here, hates the team. yea, there are a few that dont on the margins, but most of the regular posters there recently rip the team to pieces one post to the next in a constant barrage of negativity.

i just shake my head.

btw....ive been a caps fan since 1974 when one of the first players moved onto the street next to my street and we saw him almost everyday.

Well until this team gives us something to turn the fan support around...

This franchise has done nothing... ever. And they're going downhill with seemingly idiotic management.

So, first of all, I didn't suggest in any way that you're not a serious or long-suffering fan so no need to trot out the bona fides.

Second, not solely maybe but he basically says that a big fan base that renews its season tix trumps team success.

Third, there are a few haters around here, sure, but what I see and read is mostly the same frustration I feel. The clear message that ***** in seats is more important than Cups makes people mad. Anger and disappointment don't equal hate.

The Atlanta Thrashers have the same amount of cups as us... and they improved their team much more than us this offseason.

@RenLavoieRDS: "Capitals signs Keith Aucoin: 1 year / $650 000 NHL, $350 000 AHL"


edit: see posts below; Lavoie was correct that Aucoin signed a new contract with those terms, but with Toronto not Washington

Ugh.


Also.


There was a player in Dev Camp with the #23... Strung kept saying Semin was certainly gone because someone had #28... well... I guess not.

I doubt he ever has a low price. The guy produces when playing, won a championship, and the antics are in the off season. I give him a few more years and he'll be more mature.

Ha, and of course, the Aucoin signing information from Lavoie was wrong.

Aucoin signed with Toronto, as noted above.

Aucoin is obviously going to replace Semin.

Count me in as one of few willing to admit I am happy to hear Aucoin isn't going to be our 1RW next year,
