Washington Capitals general manager George McPhee appeared at Kettler Capitals Iceplex around 12:50PM on breakdown day. That’s not a surprise. However, this year, instead of addressing the media after all of the players depart like every other year, GMGM declined comment. Hmm.
According to The Washington Post’s Katie Carrera, McPhee said to the crowd gathered around him “I’ll talk in a couple days.” He then coolly sipped on a can of Diet Coke and had a conversation with 20-year-old defenseman Connor Carrick.
According to a Caps spokesman, McPhee met with majority owner Ted Leonsis and team president Dick Patrick this morning. He will meet with them once again in the next week or two and then will speak to the media.
The vultures– they’re circling.

Update: The can McPhee is holding is a Diet Pepsi, not a Diet Coke. RMNB deeply, deeply regrets the error.
