off-season chatter

so tomorrow morning the Caps are supposed to be making some big player-related announcement. as much as i’d love a “hey, we traded mike green for a defensive playing defenseman,” i’ll totally take the assumed announcement of a new contract signing for nicklas backstrom.

the rumor is a long-term (10 year) deal for around $7M a year, maybe just under.  which, if true, would be a total steal for the talent that nick possesses.

exciting news for nick and the capitals.  with him and ovie tied together for the long term, Caps fans can look forward to productive seasons for years to come.
