Welcome to Washington

...so much for a nice, quiet trade deadline day here in DC, right?

Welcome your new Washington Capitals: Cristobal Huet and Sergei Fedorov.

Raise your hand if you saw either one of those coming.

Don't forget Matt Cooke

Take care of Cookie for me. What's the deal with Pettinger?

Shelby said...

I'm at the point that I'm actually sitting ON my hand, I'm in such shock.

Victor said...

Pettinger went to the Canucks for Matt Cooke.

Shelby said...

Okay, now that I've processed and looked everything over...I'm confused. I'm wondering what the line up will be tonight, but I'm questioning something else. Why did we pick up Huet? Fedorov and Cooke I see as being more logical, but why another goalie? We aren't sending him to Hershey, I'm sure. Am I missing something?

Chris said...

Shelby,

Sending him the Hershey???? He is the new starter.

Shelby said...

Oh, I know. I'm in denial.

Ugh.

Olie = Capitals

I stand by my man.

Chris said...

Shelby,

Don't be sad too long. I mean, we all love Olie, but we *stole* Huet. A 2nd round pick! Are you kidding?

Shelby said...

Hee. That's true. I still can't fathom exactly how that happened. The fates aligned and I'm still happy.

The GF texted me in the first period: On VS, Keith Jones compared Matt Cooke to some dude named Dale Hunter.

That's pretty cool, coming from some guy who played with Huntsie.
