Wasn't sure where to put this, but I read it just now on the Post Caps Insider and I got a laugh:

On the now-infamous absence of a postgame handshake: "I mean, they were supposed to be out there shaking hands, and I guarantee if the score was reversed, they would have been up there jumping up and down, calling us names and stuff like that, but I'm getting used to that kind of stuff from them."

There are some more good quotes from BB's in the full blog entry including a dig at MD blue crabs.

If there's a Willsie there's a way.

I assume this is to fill Semin's spot. If so, why not A. Gordon getting an extended look.

We're getting the band back together!

Nothing big.

A few new songs. Mostly old stuff.

Would Gordon have to go through waivers to come up? IIRC, last time he was up, it was on an emergency basis due to the flu bug or something, so he didn't have to go through waivers then.

I imagine they are worried about him getting claimed.

Okay I'll admit it. Given 24/7, BB's quotes about the Pens, and they way he jokes about his appearance... I'm actually beginning to like the guy.

Pretty much non-debatable

He's gone from, "please trade him for Bieksa" to somewhere between a folk legend and a demigod

I'm not saying this is the only reason, but Gordon has played 8 games and it's possible none of them were on emergency recall; if that's the case he'd only have 1 more game before having to clear waivers to be sent back down so I'd think it would take a more long-term injury or an emergency recall to see him back in a Caps jersey at this time in the season.

As for Willsie, he's played well for Hershey all season. Nice to see him rewarded with the recall for the short roadtrip. On that note, the GDT needs to be started by an old-timer around here given the news....

Ovechkin and Green named to the All-Star team. Happy for Green, even though he deserved it least this season.

Carlson snubbed. Had to go with OEL to get one Phoenix player in the mix that weekend.

Disappointed about Carlson as well. Confused as to how Marc Staal makes an all-star game.

Nice to see Green get some deserved recognition....even though this isn't his best season IMO.

Rumor has it, Vancouver wants to now do Ryan Kessler straight up for Steckel and may even throw Blaska in to sweeten the deal.
