Know The Truth

Couldn't be worse timing for Day Fay huh? Yesterday, he angrily claimed Nicklas Backstrom (the #4 overall pick last year and projected second line center for next year) would not be coming to the NHL anytime soon.

Today, JP first reported and now Tarik of the (Com)Post confirms that negotiations have begun/are ongoing with the Swedish Center.

I know that Dave has been ill and away from his regular job as the Caps beat writer for awhile but there's no excuse for sloppy and baseless rumor-mongering. I also realize that the article may have been written weeks ago before negotiations began and held from publication until yesterday, but that is still no excuse for the excessively negative tone.

Anyway, as Col. Hannibal Smith of the "A-Team" used to say, "I love it when a plan comes together."
