08:13 AM ET 05.24 | Ted Leonsis has been asked a lot of questions lately -- among the most frequent is whether the team would consider a move away from their current nickname and color scheme. Leonsis's Washington Capitals went back to their original colors beginning in 2007, and the change -- combined with the team's increased success -- sparked a surge in merchandise sales and the "Rock the Red" slogan. ... "I probably will like red colors more than the teal blue that they have, but there's a lot that goes into it. And I intend to listen to people, but I also think Mr. Pollin made a personal decision, and I want to understand it, and I want to pay the appropriate respect that a decision like that would deserve."
