02:38 PM ET 06.26 | The Washington Capitals may make several moves on draft day, but one of them won't be to trade Michal Neuvirth. General manager George McPhee ruled out the possibility of trading the Caps' backup goaltender, saying that it is important the team have two good goaltenders. "Goalies get hurt. Goalies can go off their game for a little bit and why not have as many good ones as you can?" McPhee said. "So, let's see how this year goes and we'll go from there." McPhee gave Neuvirth a $5 million contract before last season, bigger than the one starting goaltender Braden Holtby got, but McPhee likes who they have between the pipes and is going to keep his duo intact.

$5 million? That's a lot of dough for a bench warmer!

I'm happy having both of those guys on the team! With a full season and training camp ahead of them, there's time to buy into the Oates system...looking forward to a full season of hockey....for now, it's baseball (snooooooooze)...
