The Caps and/or their AHL affiliate in Hershey signed two players today, rightwing Chad Wiseman and "sniper" Alexandre Giroux. I say the Caps "and/or" the Bears because the Wiseman press release reads:
HERSHEY BEARS President and General Manager, Doug Yingst, in conjunction with the Washington Capitals announced today that they have signed free agent right wing Chad Wiseman.While the Giroux release reads:
Washington Capitals Vice President and General Manager, George McPhee, in conjunction with HERSHEY BEARS President and General Manager, Doug Yingst, announced today that they have signed free agent center/left wing Alexandre Giroux.What rights do the Caps have to these players? Who knows. I'll look around for more clarification. Anyway, as for the two, Giroux led the Hartford Wolfpack in goals last year and Wiseman say only fools rush in. Hope you boys like Chocolatetown!
