I saw this article in the Washington Post earlier
Though they are not my team, it seems (and I feel) terrible how the Caps organization handled this situation. I have liked Kolzig as a goaltender, and can see he basically got replaced by Huet. I can understand that the Caps need a young goalie for the future of the franchise (Huet is 32 but probably has 6 more years of consistent play left) but really, Kolzig got screwed! He has been the goaltender for the Caps for over a decade, led the team to the cup finals, stayed on the team during their down days, and still loved playing for the team...until the trade deadline.
From what the article says, it appears he feels he has been replaced and that the team has severed ties with him.I would have loved to see him play a game at least, but it seems Caps management have chosen their path.
It saddens me to see this situation play out. Caps fans, not a bash on the team cause i got a liking for the Caps, but I think management should have handled this better. The least they could, no, SHOULD, do, is retire Kolzigs number in appreciation for all he's done.
