NHL Fans: Alexander Ovechkin to join the Caps!
Edited on Wed Jul-20-05 03:40 PM by Cush
Huge sigh of relief from this Caps fan, there was some doubt about whether he could be coming over

TSN has learned the No. 1 overall pick in the 2004 NHL entry draft has exercised his option to void his contract for this season with Omsk of the Russian Super League. Ovechkin, property of the Washington Capitals, could escape the Russian contract if he were given a contract offer by the Capitals on or before a deadline of July 20 (today). Although the NHL is not yet officially open for business, Washington apparently was able to make some sort of offering that gave Ovechkin the choice to void the contract with Omsk.

2. Yeah, hang on for a wild ride...
can't wait to see how it all unfolds. And how will the annual hockey mags be able to make any predictions??? That alone should be hilarious to watch.
