Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Michael Zuidema of the Grand Rapids Press at Mlive,
“I didn’t want to leave Philly. I thought they were still a good team that could contend in the East,” Knuble said. “But I didn’t want to leave a team that had a chance to contend for a team that didn’t have a chance.”
Washington won 50 games last season and finished first in the Southeast Division. The Capitals then lost an exciting seven-game series to the Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
Knuble hopes he can help Washington take the next step.
“I knew they needed a guy like me,” Knuble said. “A guy that go out in front of the net and score goals, get goals off my skate, my stick, my rear end, whatever.”
