Nicklas Backstrom and the Caps have reportedly agreed to a 10 year contract worth 67 million dollars.
At the press conference, the Capitals also officially introduced Marcus Johansson, their first round draft choice of a year ago who spent last year in the Swedish league. He should make the roster without much difficulty.
I mean I know he got the one year extension this year, but we still need to give him a longer contract. The man played great during the season and just because he had a bad postseason this year doesn't mean we shouldn't resign him for a longer deal. Green didn't play great last year but he still got a pretty good length of a deal. Semin is a good player and he will prove to be for years to come.
Couldn't ask for two better players in Ovi and Backstrom...Backstrom was flat out phenominal this year...he's what 22 or 23 and broke 100 points? Good things to come...I didn't think they would win this year, but very dissappointed in them going out to the Habs...shit happens...we will win a cup in the next 6 years...Ovi is one of the greats and they all have one thing in commen...they win a Stanley Cup!
