Capitals owner Ted Leonsis on NHL's return
CSN Washington dot com fill -- so I'm just like if being a fan and was very frustrating to not keep playing and and we're very apologetic for put in the fans through this we missed 34 games. But that's behind and we're getting ready not a drop the puck in the excitement here during the last week has been --
Oval what's been kind of irresponsible and fans do get angry mean do you feel. -- sort of responsible had to come behind you how do you deal with.
I think the fans. Deserve empathy. And you understand I apologize for. He -- no one of the thirty owners that were behind. I was losing all our. Our games and that's never fun I attended. Over fifteen innings rules spent a lot of time. Doing it and can. I understand why the fans are unhappy and I think that now we have fantastic system for the players and the owners. The most steadfast things that I. Stipulated in discussions was links of the deal. I don't want our fans. To have to worry about. What's gonna happen and having a ten year deal I think will be very very positive for everybody.
I know you said that you and met with some of the players are not you know most of the players already one on one. It would seem to mean just from the total outsider's perspective. That might be like a little awkward at first girl I mean -- Are low in the first or Alex she came running over and to me -- not hard at all.
And been congratulated known about his engagement. There is zero. Overhead. The players saw our. Very appreciative of this community and there they feel bought into the franchise but I think. The most important thing is to not to lose slate now that we are in this together the players the union to lead the owners. We wanted to do what's right for the fans and the best thing we can do -- Make this great team and play with passion and love and intensity. And we intend to start doing that come the Saturday.
