Capitals Hire New Management Team
November 06, 2018
"It was strange to see." Newly hired GM Bachul said. "A position posted in the classifieds of a newspaper. I saw it in the Post. I almost thought it was a joke."

But it was no joke. The team decided to go outside the box, but not really. Bachul has been a veteran of years of elite hockey, but new to this group.

"I like the idea of being with a strong league with intelligent guys that are competitive but a good group. Guys with integrity and good nature. That was what I was told."

Bachul took a look at the opportunity and was not long to decide as the Capitals have a strong base of talent and look to contend as soon as this year.

"I don't mind a challenge, but when a team of this calibre ends up on your lap, you don't look a gift-horse in the mouth." Bachul started. "There is a good core that you can build around, strong goaltending, and some decent youth. I don't think I will be making major changes, more like cursory moves that enhance what we are doing."

When asked what players might find their way out of the nation's capital, Bachul was not coy. "I see Subban as a player that is too good to be on our second pair. He is available as are most players other than Hedman, Draisaitl, Kuznetzov and Ekman-Larsson." Bachul intimated that there really are no untouchables, but depth isn't his teams weakness so it has to be a hockey deal for any core player to move.

"I don't expect to be super aggressive, more a measured approach. That said, we are open for business."
