Former Coyotes enforcer Paul Bissonnette, who once looked like this, opened up to Kings blog Mayor’s Manor on Wednesday about his difficult offseason. Biznasty, who The Washington Post’s Alex Prewitt reported in August was close to signing with Washington, confirms that yeah, that totally was the plan, except the Caps couldn’t find the salary space to make it happen.
Bissonnete reveals that the Caps were trying to move veteran defenseman John Erskine to make room for him.
Since then, a bunch of money and awareness for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease) has been raised and the Ice Bucket Challenge has gone viral. At this point, if you haven’t done it yet– you’re a big weirdo.
Over the last 24 hours, a bunch of Caps people have completed the challenge. Since I’m guessing there will be more, we’ll be updating this post as they happen all day.
The Pre-Game: Oh Lordy, we hate being wrong. Especially if it involves Canada. What happened Saturday was nothing short of a national pantsing of the Caps on the equivalent of Canada’s national holiday (that admittedly comes once a week, and with lots of beer). We suspected it would be a high-scoring affair, but completely misread in which direction. Blah blah they were disconnected blither blather they weren’t moving their feet twiddle twaddle they weren’t chasing the pucks and so forth. Not my job to pick over Saturday night’s turkey carcass; others have done that far better. Let others pile on our Mustardy Coach. We’re looking forward to what’s being cooked up tonight.
