Its a slow news day for the Caps, after yesterday's announcement about signing 2006 top draft pick Nicklas Backstrom. Nothing new on the Chris Pronger end either, just some endless re-hashing. So here is today's Caps news, courtesy of the latest ESPN Magazine, about the summer plans of a few players.
Chris Clark: A huge Bosox fan, the Caps cap took in opening day at Fenway.Around the league:
Matt Pettinger: Vacationed in Barcelona in mid-April
RJ Umberger (Flyers): He's finishing his bachelor's degree in business marketing at Ohio State.There is also something in there about Flyers forward Geoff Sanderson putting a diaphragm in his mouth to lure wild male turkeys to him, then shooting them. You are on your own if you want to read that one.
Joe Piskula (Kings): After leaving the U. of Wisconsin to join the NHL in March, the defenseman went back to school three days after the season ended.
Note: I forgot to add that there is also an excellent article on UFC fighter Chuck Liddell in the Mag. Definitely worth reading.
