08:19 AM ET 08.29 | Washington's John Carlson can't be certain about when he'll have a new deal, but he seems not to be worried if he'll have a new deal. "That's not my job," Carlson, a restricted free agent, said [Tuesday]. ... The league's current collective bargaining agreement expires on Sept. 15. If Carlson is not signed before that date, the two sides will have to wait until a new CBA is in place before working out a contract. At this point, though, Carlson didn't express any concern that things wouldn't be ironed out eventually. "I love Washington, I love being here. I stayed here for a lot of the summer," Carlson said. "I like my teammates, I like the rink, I like the fans. I can't imagine playing anywhere else."

And who wouldn't be? I can't speak for The Bird, but I'm getting too old to try to keep these guys in town. Now, if Carlson wants to buy me lunch, well, ...........I do like filet mignon. :)

Ok, that's enough of that. We had a nice thread going on the Capitals, we won't be turning it into a Broadway musical. Silly is silly is silly. Move on now.
