Alex Ovechkin is upbeat after the Capitals were able to sign defensemen Brooks Orpik and Matt Niskanen.
"That our team signed such guys [as Niskanen and Orpik] – that's a very strong move," Ovechkin said. "Orpik, for example, is a very physical defenseman. If he plays on your team – it’s a positive for you. But the results will be at the end of the season, it hasn't even started yet. Who knows what other changes are coming to the team– maybe there will be a trade or something else." Not everything that happened for the Capitals this summer was a positive in Ovechkin's eyes. He had a close relationship with Mikhail Grabovski and he's said to see him go. Jul 7 - 10:15 PM
