The U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., today decided not to grant the Washington Capitals’ motion for a preliminary injunction against agent Mark Gandler, his firm International Sports Advisors Company and Alexander Semin as part of the team’s ongoing efforts to have the forward to report to the Capitals. Washington Capitals vice president and general manager George McPhee made the following statement: “We're well aware that the standard to achieve a preliminary injunction is very high. Given that, our choice was to sit back and do nothing or to act to enforce our contractual rights. We were hoping for a quick resolution to this matter. Nothing in the court’s decision changes the fact that we have a valid NHL contract with our player. We will not cease in our efforts to have the contract honored and Alex Semin in our lineup.”
