Caps Moving Forward

from Tarik El-Bashir of the Wasington Post,
George McPhee meandered his way across the Hershey Bears' locker room shaking hands and offering congratulations as music thumped from the stereo on Tuesday night. The Bears had just clinched a berth in the American Hockey League's Calder Cup finals, and McPhee, the general manager of the Washington Capitals -- Hershey's parent club -- was as joyful as the minor leaguers who whooped and hollered around him. Considering the payroll constraints imposed by Capitals ownership, a strong minor league system could prove to be McPhee's most valuable asset as he attempts to shepherd the Capitals back to respectability. ...Added Green: "Washington is on the right track. It all starts down here, and hopefully, this group can take this experience to Washington. It's been a good run here in Hershey, but nothing has been accomplished yet."
more (reg. req.)...and thanks to a KK reader for the pointer...
