How does this make any sense if he's waiting until at the earliest Tuesday to decide?
Hmm.. Now, I suppose McPhee will counter with Zilch, right? Yawn. How are we going to compete with that lineup? I thought we were supposed to be going for a cup. To hell with this team, stringing fans along for years.
Cos Oates wasn't hated by Caps fan before he got here......and when he did get here, he didn't go through the motions while collecting a stupid paycheck.
Yeah, What Oates did was far worse than Jagr. Demanding to be traded repeatedly, holding out despite being under contract, sleeping through meetings, getting Linden run out of town. I'd put Oates' crimes in DC against Jagr's crimes in DC and say Oates was far worse.
So you think SI asked every signed player that question about the Caps? Obviously not. Not to mention the dozens of yet-to-be-signed players.
No what I was suggesting was "hey player x who contacted you" player x says teams a, b and c and some small interest from teams d and e. That may not happen but it's an assumption that can be made in asking those questions to players after they sign.
Either way I'm with you in that I doubt we have really any clue as far as who GMGM has contacted or not.
