Braden Holtby won't visit Trump's White House

The Washington Capitals will celebrate their Stanley Cup championship from last season at the White House on Monday, but goalie Braden Holtby won’t be among the attendees.

Joining forward Brett Connolly, who said Monday he was turning down the invitation, Holtby said Friday he was “respectfully declining” the invite.

“My family and myself, we believe in a world where humans are treated with respect regardless of your stature, what you’re born into,” said Holtby, a noted LGBTQ rights advocate. “You’re asked to choose what side you’re on, and I think it’s pretty clear what side I’m on.”

3. SAVE!!!!

I don't think Braden would appreciate GOAL!!! too much, seeing as he's a goaltender. But, yes, good on him.

4. Well, yeah,

I can see your point.

But being from Pittsburgh, I don't mind hearing that word when you do mention his name!

5. The Pens are a good team

but the problem they have in the playoffs is their lack of a physical edge. They can get pushed around. Teams like Washington, Boston and Philadelphia can bully them. I wish Pittsburgh hadn't let Ryan Reaves go. He was their muscle.
