Matt Bradley’s recent critique of Alexander Semin and his previous employer is being backed by another former Capital.
New Jersey Devils forward David Steckel, who spent the majority of last season with the Capitals before being traded in February, defended the comments of his former teammate.
Speaking to the Washington media, the 29-year-old did not dispute Bradley’s statements, which described a lack of effort from Semin and a lack of discipline from the team on the ice and in the playoffs.
“It’s not like he went out and told lies,” Steckel told reporters. “(He) didn’t really say anything bad about anybody. He just stated what he felt.”
Bradley, who signed with the Florida Panthers after six seasons in Washington, caused a stir with comments that he made in an interview with the Team 1200 radio station in Ottawa.
