JOEL WARD RUMORS & GOSSIP

Caps sign Justin Williams, Lose Mike Green

In a surprising late night signing, the Washington Capitals have landed likely the best remaining unrestricted free agent forward, Justin Williams, on a two-year deal for $6.5 million.  With Williams, the Caps landed the top six forward that was coveted by GM Brian MacLellan.  MacLellan made clear after this season ended that a top six forward was a top priority, but hinted that...

Valiant third period effort not enough for the Washington Capitals

Game 6 between the Washington Capitals and New York Rangers was, in my opinion, the best game of the series so far. Throughout the entire game there was a sense of a must-win scenario. Of course, the Rangers needed to win game 6 to stay in the playoffs, but there was also pressure on the Caps to eliminate the Rangers and prevent a game 7. Both teams put forth a tremendous effort...

William Douglas doesn’t dwell on negatives. Perhaps he picked up the trait covering Congress, his current occupation with McClatchy Newspapers – and it’s certainly an occupation. Maybe it stems from teenage years spent in rinks across the Mid-Atlantic, where he was one of two black players in a league that stretched from Maryland to New […] The post The NHL In 2014: An Introduction...

Former Predator Ward represents tricky lesson in NHL economics

When the Washington Capitals awarded Joel Ward a four-year, $12-million contract in 2011, it seemed like an outrageous sum at the time. Ward was coming off a regular season in which he scored 10 goals in 80 games.
