Two weeks ago we speculated that Mike Green's negotiations with the Caps might have stalled in part because Green's agent-by-extension, Don Meehan, had a bone to pick with the Caps after being fired by Alex Ovechkin (to clarify, Green's agent is Craig Oster, an agent in Meehan-founded Newport Sports Management).
Well, today's Newport Sports Management Happy Hour is likely sponsored by the Washington Capitals, as Green signed a four-year, $21 million deal and Meehan client Jose Theodore signed a two-year, $9 million contract. And while the annual total ($9.75 million) is just a shade over what Ovechkin's cap hit will be this year, one wonders if Meehan's thirst for possible revenge is now slaked.
Wait a second - he's an agent. Nevermind. Maybe he can soak the team for another million or more on a new deal for Eric Fehr.
