Maybe Martin Brodeur simply wanted to give himself a bigger raise than the Devils were willing to give him.
The Capitals were incredibly quiet on the first day of NHL free agency Sunday, but that doesnt mean they wont be opening their wallets on Day 2.
When the Capitals made the decision to part ways with Alexander Semin, Mike Knuble, Jeff Halpern, Cody Eakin and Dennis Wideman, a total of 46 goals went with them.
So, Caps fans, who will you root for tonight? The Rangers? The Senators? The Panthers? The Devils?
It all depends on who you want to face in the first round.
When they looked at the schedule, there were many Capitals fans who dreaded this five-game road trip.
