Yea, they were waiting til the team got home. Notice Leonsis did a rare interview for the game cast last night. Leonsis marketing machine was not going to allow the team to issue a press release with the team on the west coast with TEB there and all the bloggers and local tv sports at home.

Yeah, so instead they announce it on a day when the Redskins ink a deal with a coach with a Super Bowl resume and the Gilbert Arenas gun grand jury is convened. The Ovechkin story turned out to be a poor third on that day. Ted's "marketing machine" seems to have thrown a bolt.

Just listening to Caps Report, per Ewell and Vogel, Boudreau and GMGM did an informal poll of the team on the West-coast trip, and the selection of Ovechkin was apparently unanimous.

Also, there was an audible roar 30 yards away from the film-room when the team was told.

Thought that was pretty cool.

I'm all for it, if only to see the look on Canadian hockey purists' faces.
