After the Caps game on Sunday, 4 players (Brooks Laich, Shaone Morrisonn, Mike Green and Eric Fehr) went to a bar after the game.
Among what I found out:
``Fehr said that his back and his hip are absolutely at 100%.
``Laich told the crowd much to my delight (when asked) that the best hockey player he has ever lined up against is in fact Sidney Crosby.
``I talked to Green about Dion Phaneuf's 6 year $39 million dollar new contract and asked him point blank where he would try to negotiate off of that..."You know me and Phaneuf have the same agent, right?" Greenie said. I just nodded and said, "Oh damn, so you about to get paid, huh?" He smiled and chuckled, "what other defenseman has 15 goals this year?".
``All the Caps there were great sports, signing things and taking pictures for everyone. I especially enjoyed Laich, he had a great sense of humor and good outlook on being there.
``Vodka and waters are the drink of hockey players. "Don't want all the carbonation and sugar of a soda", I was told.
