The Dearly Departed

Whomever said "parting is such sweet sorrow" (some guy named Bill, I think) obviously didn't have 2007-08's Matt Pettinger on his roster.

Picking up on where this morning's wildly successful post didn't take us, after the jump is a brief look at a handful of guys who played for the Caps last season but are no longer with us (in the hockey sense) and how they're doing this year.
