Solid move by the Caps. Bradley is asolid player. He's not spectacular at any one thing, but he's solid on both ends of the ice. He scores big goals in big situations. He's brings physical play and emotion to the Caps.

Still waiting for the 'Capitals Re-Sign Netminder Cristobal Huet' release though.

:up: on re-signing Bradley.

The Caps left themselves little choice other than to re-sign Huet, so I would anticipate that release you are asking for in the near future.
