Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Katie Carrera of the Washington Post,
Acquiring 25-year-old Troy Brouwer, a gritty leader who already has won one Stanley Cup in his career, might not have been the glitziest move that occurred over the past few days while the hockey world assembled in Minnesota. But it’s one that General Manager George McPhee believes will help Washington on and off the ice. It was the Capitals’ lone trade during the draft, and they used picks in the final four rounds to select a goaltender, two defensemen and a center.
“We thought it was a really good move for our club at the right time,” McPhee said. “I talked to him [Friday] night; he was really excited and sounds like a great kid. It’s amazing to feel that after a three-minute conversation, but he seems like the kind of leader that we’re looking for.”
