Sutherby Traded

Well...there you go. I guess that answers two questions - one, how the Caps were going to make roster space for Semin and two, why Sutherby continued to see press box time.

I always liked Sudsy - he was one of those gritty, hard-working players I seem to gravitate to but also seemed like a genuinely good guy off the ice. I'll miss him, but good for Brian...I'm sure he'll see more minutes playing in Anaheim then with a team that has an excess of centers.

Best of luck to Brian with his new team.

Should be good for him too, being closer to home and his family. I know they came out at least two-three times a year, but now they can go down a lot more often, plus he's in the division to play the Oilers a lot more. Love him, but he definitely needed a change of scenery. He and Randy Carlisle got on real well when RC was here, too. I think it's a good move all around, but will miss him in town!

Is it possible for fans to be traded?

I'll have to check the fan CBA and see how soon until I become an Unrestricted Free Fan.

C&S: Oh, now, come on - keep your chin up! Remember, this will all be worth it when the Caps hoist the Cup in a few years...right? I have to keep telling myself that to avoid the drinking binges.

In the meantime, do what I do - take another team as your "mistress". Or two. GO HABS/FLAMES GO!

That was me talking.

Sarah says she's a real fan, and does not jump ship when it is sinking into the deepest depths of disrepair.

F-L-A-M-E-S FLAMES! FLAMES! FLAMES!
