3 possible destinations for Washington Capitals netminder Braden Holtby.
For the longest time it has looked like pending free agent Braden Holtby will be looking for a new city and new hockey club to call home. That fear and reality did not get diminished recently either. While introducing Peter Leviolette as the teams new head coach Washington Capitals General Manager Brian MacLellan said he expected Holtby to test free agency.
It looks very, very unlikely Holtby will be returning to D.C. It doesn’t make a ton of sense for either side to come to terms. Braden will likely want a payday he deserves, and at the same time be a starter that everyone knows he is. The Capitals are not a team that can afford him and have a young goaltender that looks ready in Ilya Samsonov.
It’s tough, but it looks like a fan favorite will be making his way out. That’s sports.
However, it’s also 2020, not 1990. It’s very easy to follow your favorite players with access to pretty much any team and any game at any time. If you can’t watch full games plenty of sites gives you some pretty good highlights. And of course we have smartphones with apps that lets you follow your favorite players. Once they do something you can get updates that tells you how they did.
Sure it’s not the same as having your favorite player on your team. But if you really do love the guy/player it’s impossible these days to not keep up with them.
With all that being said, lets look at three teams that Capitals fans might want to watch more of in 2020-21.
