#2 The Caps being buyers
This wasn’t a rumor but more of a side thought that Brian MacLellan would go the route of what the Pittsburgh Penguins did and gun for a playoff spot which in the end only helped the Florida Panthers win the Eastern Conference and the Pens own GM getting axed as well as falling down the draft board.
Yeah when I attended the outdoor game with my friends we left that stadium looking at each other each of us going “Caps need to sell”.
Thank the lord they did. The tank didn’t land them Connor Bedard but it did land them Ryan Leonard.
