He’s baaack! All you Zed heads that had changed your clean hair cuts to mirror the explosive right winger get a chance to be seen in public once again. Richard Zednik is back in a Capitals sweater and this time as a veteran.
I am actually applauding this move. I thought the Caps had made huge mistake on trading Zednik to Montreal. But, we did land a great talent in Dainius Zubrus in Zednik’s place. It will be interesting to see how these two will now complement each other. You can read more on the Wash Post.
The Caps have also made an effort at keeping good talent, especially on the blue line. Resigning Shaone Morrisonn was a step in the right direction. Although, I would like to see the Caps sign a veteran stay-at-home defenseman.
So far the Caps are getting a B from me on their off season moves. While signing a solid defenseman Brian Pothier, the Caps did lose a work horse in Brian Willsie to LA Kings. Although it’s hard to lose a fan favorite, it was time for Jeff Halpern to go, and I think he got a great deal in Dallas.
Capitals season schedule is out and the Caps will open on Broadway. They will again be opening their season on Oct. 5, and play their home opener on Oct. 7 at the Verizon Center (I know, it still sounds weird).
