Per TSN’s Bob McKenzie, Washington Capitals center Michael Nylander is headed to Russia. McKenzie also reports that:
“Nylander makes the final call on whether he’s going to Russia but it looks like he’s prepared to do it. Not formalized just yet, though.” – 12:22pm
“And since this Russian thing looked like it was going to get done a time or two before and didn’t, we better wait for official confirmation.” – 12:47pm
On a somewhat related note, Dan Steinberg kills two brids with one stone in his Washington Post Chat:
Stockholm, Swe: Could the Washington Redskins find a roster spot for Michael Nylander?
Dan Steinberg: The Redskins are already fine at spinning in circles without going anywhere, thanks.
HMMMMMMM??? Nyls, packing bags with no chiseled contract yet, and GMGM headed to Toronto for a Generel managers meeting?
I am still hopeful we just bring up some talented D and get them under contract.
