CSN Washington’s Chuck Gormley just broke the news that UFA’s Mike Green and Eric Fehr will be leaving the organization. Gormley spoke to Craig Oster, who represents both players.
“The Capitals have been open and transparent and honest and I think both players were clear in terms of their willingness and intention to stay if it was going to make sense,” Oster said to Gormley. “At the end of the day, it’s a decision by [the Capitals] as to how they make their best team and based on all the factors it wasn’t going to work out for Mike or Eric or the organization and both sides will continue to move on.”
I am now very sad.
6/26 Update: Alex Prewitt reports that while Fehr will test the free agent market, there’s still a chance he could return next season. Oster adds that “in Eric’s case, they’ve talked about the possibility of him returning and yet there’s been no substantial follow-up on that.”
