An interesting tidbit from Boston.com writer Kevin Paul Dupont about Milan Jurcina. Seems like there’s some serious regret about Jurcina’s departure in Boston . . . I, for one, hope to see Jurcina in a Caps jersey for many years:
Last Sunday in D.C., the lowly Capitals slapped a 7-1 loss on the lofty Lightning, a thumping that left Bolts star Vincent Lecavalier without a point and a minus-2 for his 22:17 of ice time.
“Vinny came away from that one talking about how impressed he was with [Milan] Jurcina,” said a veteran scout with close ties to Tampa’s franchise center. “I guess Jurcina was out there every time Vinny was, and he said he’s one of the toughest defensemen he’s had to play against.”
