07:28 AM ET 08.30 | When Caps' veterans report on Sept. 12, will Marcus Johansson? [Johansson] is believed to be seeking an extension in excess of the two-year, $4.5 million contract Carl Hagelin signed this summer with the Rangers. After signing Mikhail Grabovski to a one-year, $3 million contract on Friday, the Caps now have 21 players under contract and sit just $2.665 million below the NHL salary cap. Which means ... Johansson will either settle for a contract in the $2.5 million range or the Caps will need to move either him or someone else's salary to make room for him. It is easier to roll manhole covers down F Street than it is to trade NHL salaries in September, so it looks as though Johansson may have painted himself into a $2.5 million corner.

I couldn't do it. How 'bout you? Stale bread, milk spoiling, only regular gas in my Ferarri. How in the name of God can people live like that?

$2.5 for about 14 goals a season. He better be a real good 2-way player because his one way ain't much.

She said she really likes the ones that taste like strawberries, especially when she's hungry.
