The news has just broken that Caps GM Brian MacLellan is the worst human being in the history of the world has traded Troy Brouwer, Pheonix Copley and a third-round draft pick to the St. Louis Blues in exchange for some guy name T.J. Oshie.
More like boshee if you ask us.
As you may know, we’re kinda fans of Brouwer, and we’re happy for the St. Louis Blues to be getting such a strong player and all around great guy. No, you know what, screw the St. Louis Blues and their stupid musical note logo. Congratulations on being a city best known for having an arch in it. You don’t deserve him.
Have you finished running around the block and telling your neighbors that the Caps traded for T.J. Oshie? Now that you’re back inside, let’s talk about this. I’m sure we’ll have plenty more on Oshie and Justin Williams in the coming days, but here’s a wide-angle look at the newest member of the Caps.
Oleksy had been in the Capitals organization for the last three seasons, playing in 62 games (3 goals, 16 assists) for the Caps and 153 games for the AHL Hershey Bears (12 goals, 29 assists), where he served as the team’s captain since March. An under-appreciated defenseman, Oleksy made his mark as a fan favorite for his scrappy style and his personable nature. Here are just seven (that’s his minor league number!) of the many reasons we’re going to miss him.
