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.

Seven Things We’ll Miss Most About Steve Oleksy

Steve Oleksy holds up the puck from his first NHL goal

Lost amid the news Wednesday afternoon that longtime Caps defenseman Mike Green had signed a 3-year, $18-million contract with the Detroit Red Wings was the news that another Caps D-man, Steve Oleksy, had signed his own 1-year, $575,000 deal with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

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.

Wednesday night, the Caps made a big move signing Justin Williams to an affordable two-year deal. Williams has the reputation of a leader who thrives in big moments. He’s also a darn good hockey player who really does make players around him better.

While Joel Ward had been clutch for the Caps over the last three years, new Caps right wing Justin Williams is even clutchier. They call him Mr. Game Seven after all.

No one saw this coming. The Washington Capitals have signed right wing Justin Williams, formerly of the Los Angeles Kings. It’s a two-year contract worth an average value of $3.25 million.

Williams is a three-time Cup winner and now he’s going to play for the Caps– maybe with Ovi and Nicky. That’s a good price and a good term for a very good player. This is awesome.
