Ok. We're going to try to squeeze this game in. Trade Deadline is going to be at 8:00 PM EST on Friday, Voting will be Saturday, and Draft will be Sunday. Might announce the agents on Monday (Christmas Eve) but not have anyone sign until sometime next Wednesday. Hope this works for everyone.
Washington is incredibly stoked to add Dave Bolland to the organization. What can we say about him that isn't widely known? He's a gritty heart and soul type that's full of piss and vinegar. He shuts down top players and gets under their skin. He's the epitome of a playoff performer and a Stanley Cup winner. In short, he's exactly what the Capitals have been searching for to boost their playoff success.
Niklas Hjalmarrson provides us with a younger no-nonsense defensive stalwart to couple with Mike Green. We're very excited about our versatile Top-4 of Alzner - Carlson and Hjalmarrson - Green.
Philip Danault adds to our prospect depth down the middle and you'll fall in love with him shortly this World Junior Championships.
