Believe it or not, but some high-quality reading actually comes from outside of Homer McFanboy. Just in case you missed it, here’s what we’re reading this morning:
- Earlier this year, we sat down with Washington Capitals general manager George McPhee to talk about what it takes to build a winner. Well, the guys at Hogs Haven have one-upped us. They’ve tracked down Caps owner Ted Leonsis, who was kind enough to share his 10-point rebuilding plan with them … just in case other teams in town were interested.
- After yesterday’s 6-2 debacle against the Florida Panthers at home, maybe McPhee will give a little extra thought to bringing in a new player or two prior to the trade deadline. The Washington Times talked to him before the Panthers game, which is good because there’s not much to say after that ugly letdown. One area the front office might want to focus on – defenseman Jeff “Liability” Schultz was on the ice for five of the Panthers six goals.
- In case you missed it, Don Cherry put the clownsuit back on and took aim at Alex Ovechkin for his goal celebrations in a rant so ridiculous that he somehow tries to compare Ovechkin to Sean “Sloppy Seconds” Avery. It should be noted that Cherry also hates rainbows, puppies and fun. Japers’ Rink has the video.
- Finally, check out Tanner Cooley’s interview with the Redskins’ newest addition – defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth. He’s not much for fantasy football or video games, but Haynesworth is excited to be here and already making friends with Clinton Portis, Fred Smoot and others.
