Caps Fans -- Count Our BlessingsPosted on July 09, 2010
Aren't we all glad we drafted, developed, and retained our two-time MVP in Alex Ovechkin. He signed a 13 year extension. He didn't want to test free agency. He loved our fans and our franchise. He showed respect and love to us and we reciprocated in kind. Same with Nicklas Backstrom, who just signed a 10 year deal with us to be here during his key free agent years too. Phew. What a relief. Fans can fall in love and stay in love with these players and our team for the long term. Our players showed commitment, respect, loyalty, and integrity to the fan base and our community. We are very grateful. When I read some of the articles about the NBA free agency loss of players, I cringe. I know it will happen to us one day. I don't look forward to it.
