Kozlov, Others Skating In South Beach

Earlier today, Tarik noted that many of the Caps veterans, a veteran former NHLer Cap and a rookie are back in town and working out at Kettler. Not listed among the vets was Viktor Kozlov, who is apparently skating down in Miami with a handful of Panthers and a couple of other NHLers, notably Roberto Luongo and Brendan Witt (recall that Kozlov spent parts of seven seasons with the Kitties).

I pass this news along not only because I know how much you care where Kozlov is spending his last few days before reporting to D.C., but because I found it interesting that Luongo would want to work out with what amounts to the team from which he more or less demanded to be traded and, for that matter, that they'd want him there. Apparently, though, there are no hard feelings - probably because the main reason Luongo is no longer a Panther is now in Calgary.



1) Can't recall a star player being involved in not one but two lop sided deals as Luongo has been.
2) First traded by the Islanders along with Ollie Jokinen for Mark Parrish and stiff, Oleg Kvasha. Then the deal that Keenan made last year in which only Bryan Allen still remains. Both are amazingly bad!

With witt/luongo/kozlov down there I woudl assume they have homes down there. Not a big deal.

Anyone else notice that Bondra was skating with the Caps?

I really wish he wouldn't do that. It just starts people saying "I wish we could re-sign him so he could retire as a Cap..."

(You're very busy today by the way, JP...and sharp new look, I like it!)
