Can I Get An Amen?

Caps owner Ted Leonsis is asking fans to have faith and patience. Specifically, he posts a spiritied defense of the team's decisions not to sign stop-gap over-the-hill free agents to plug holes that may or may not be there:
Making wholesale free agent signings and expecting good team chemistry and success is naive and fiscally irresponsible. And under a cap system, this can cause long term damage to the development of your team.
I couldn't agree more, and can suggest a couple of teams up I-95 for fans whose loyalty is based upon free-spending ownership.

Oh, and whoever suggested that the Caps sign Alexander Mogilny and/or Petr Nedved should be punched in the mouth.
