We learned yesterday that the Wasington Capitals informed winger Mike Knuble they would not be re-signing him for the 2012-12 season.  In an interview with Elliot in the Morning today, he admitted his 2011-12 season was very trying but still wants to "play this game for as long as [he] can."

Knuble, who has played three seasons with the Caps, tallied 220 regular season games, contributing 59 goals and 52 assists during his time in the red, white, and blue. In 24 playoff games with the Caps, he netted 6 goals and added 5 assists for 11 points.
