    This is what this team needs. We got a young goaltender who is still learning and too many guys on defense who worried about bringing the puck up ice.

    You're going to love him. His offense is gone but he's still a stud in his own zone and a physical force.

    Last year:

    3:05 PK/gm
    18:00 ES/gm
    65.4% d-zone start
    39 ESGA
    5.1 defensive point shares
    +26 on only 14 points

    He was top 5 in the league in defensive point shares and +/-

    He is also the ultimate clubhouse leader. He is a work out freak and will push everyone to a higher level.​

    Not sure about this, but dammit, I get unreasonably excited whenever slow, washed up big names come here (see Mike Richards).

    Hard to complain about the value here. Adding a veteran leader on an actually affordable contract that suits his current role. Not paying any premiums for past performance.

    Only way this backfires is if Siegenthaler is clearly outplaying him and whichever gets benched creates some sort of locker room issue. But I'm doubtful that happens.

    what are those pairings gonna look like?

    congrats, big Z is still very effective in a shutdown role.

    Congratulations my HF Capitals friends. Like others have said, yes he’s not the player he once was, but he still brings so much to the table.

    I think this is great for your team in a shortened season and perhaps he may not play every back to back game, but he’ll sure be there for the playoffs when it really matters.

    And no one clears the front of the net like he does obviously. Very excited for you folks this coming season with Lavy.

    Happy New Year to everyone here and your families. Hopefully better days ahead.

    He's slow but, but provides defense. Someone who is more worried about helping the goalie than the puck.

    Take care of big Z, Washington.

    You guys have a legend, an absolute warrior and one of the toughest to ever lace them up.

    The hell if we know. The Capitals already had a lot of NHL-capable bodies on the back end, and now it's even more crowded. They're collecting every #5 defenseman in the NHL.

    Lol.

    Kovy, Lundquist, Chara. What a sequence of ~2008 All Stars. I look forward to McDavid being a Cap in about 2035.

    That being said, I have nothing against this signing, and I don't really expect anything from it.

    I do. I expect anyone on defense who allows easy paths to Ilya to have a nice little chat with Big Z.

    He's an NHLer still so at $795k this is a good move.
