In a phone interview with TSN on Wednesday, new Detroit Red Wings defenseman Mike Green said waking up and realizing he was no longer a Capital “sort of slapped me in the face.”
What can we draw from the Capitals’ relative inactivity during Wednesday’s free agency?
After seeing defenseman Mike Green sign a three-year, $18 million with the Detroit Red Wings, the Capitals issued this statement:
Four hours into the NHL’s free-agent period, Joel Ward and Eric Fehr were still unemployed, but Ward’s agent is not ruling out the possibility of his client returning to Washington.
For weeks, Capitals general manager Brian MacLellan has been looking for a top-line right wing without overpaying.
