George McPhee entered Sundays start of NHL free agency with 20.8 million in cap space. He spent just 950,000 on fourth-line winger Joey Crabb.
When Joey Crabb had to wait until the seventh round to be taken 226th overall in the 2002 NHL draft he had a pretty good idea his road to the NHL would be a rocky one.
When George McPhee was asked last week about how tempting it was to enter July 1 with 20.8 million in cap space, he raised a cautionary flag.
The Capitals have signed defensemen Garrett Stafford and Kevin Marshall to one-year contracts, general manager George McPhee announced today. Both contracts are believed to be two-way deals.
