Leonsis Believes In “The Family”

Ted Leonsis on Alexander Ovechkin remaining a Capital via Capitals Insider,

“I’m sure that the Ovechkin family and the Washington Capitals will come to a place where both think is fair and right and Alex will be here for a long time,” Leonsis said. “That’s his goal and I’m sure it will work out. He’ll save some money by not having an agent.”

Caps Stick To Game Plan

from Ted Leonsis at WashingtonCaps.com,

Thanks to a heads up from George McPhee, I knew who we would be pursuing in free agency before I left for China. It was great to hear that three of those names will be joining us in the fall.
Free agency is a crazy time, as I’m sure many of you found while hitting “refresh” on your favorite hockey website or blog. I know it seemed frantic to me, perhaps even more so since I was so far away. What’s impressive to me is that amid that chaos, George and his team stuck to their plan, got what they felt we needed and did it all with contracts that will not hurt us competitively or financially down the road.

NHL May Get Involved In Nylander Deal

from Adam Proteau of the Hockey News,

NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly told The Hockey News.com the league is awaiting further details before deciding whether to step in.
“Clubs and players both should have a right to rely on the sanctity of contractual commitments, regardless of how those commitments are memorialized,” Daly said in an emailed statement. “To our knowledge, there has been only one Standard Player’s Contract executed and filed with the League, and under our CBA, that contract should be enforceable.
“But if, after reviewing all of the relevant facts here, there has been a breach of a contractual commitment, we will certainly assist the Oilers in any way we can in seeking an appropriate remedy. We are not in a position to opine what those remedies might be at this point.”
