So the Caps now have 3 returning players who also led Team Russia (OV, Semin and Fedorov, of course) to gold in the IIHF World Championshp - not too shabby! Outside of his phenomenal career with former teams, including Stanley Cup wins with the Detroit Red Wings, Feds has stepped in as a leader among the young players in the Capital's locker room. Hockey Mom is stoked to hear the news of both signings - though I hope $4 million doesn't prove too steep in the end as I'd like to see others including Boyd Gordon and David Steckel back.
I also heard this morning on Hockey This Morning that former Ottawa Senators hothead Ray Emery is going to play in the Russian Continental Hockey League. Looks like there's several poster boys for bad behavior heading that way, including Chris Simon. How's that for a change of scenery?
So just a quick news flash - things are looking good so far. How many days until training camp...HM can't wait!
