A Good Day For A Signing

The Caps picked a pretty good day to sign Nicklas Backstrom, not much hockey news out there today (remember the Canadian Holiday).
D.C. Sports Bog gives us the scoop on Backstrom…

—His favorite NHL player is Henrik Zetterberg.
—A little sketchy on the details here, but apparently he studied carpentry in school. His father suggested that it was really more like masonry. I hope the Caps use this in some sort of promotional campaign about building the foundation of the new core or something like that.

Alexander Semin Kicked off Team Russia

From The Hockey News,

The Hockey News.com has learned Washington Capitals star Alexander Semin has been kicked off the Russian national team, prompting Semin’s agent to refer to the fiasco as, “the most bizarre situation I’ve ever experienced in hockey, ever.”
Mark Gandler, who represents Semin, said the Russian team’s decision to remove Semin from the team because he arrived hours after the team’s first practice was unreasonable and far too harsh.
“I don’t understand it…there is no explanation for it,” Gandler said. “Alexander did nothing wrong, but even if he had, the punishment doesn’t fit the crime.”
