In case you hadn’t heard: Carl Hagelin has been traded to the Washington Capitals! He started his career with the New York Rangers, and after a brief pit-stop in Anaheim, went to Pittsburgh, where he raised the Stanley Cup (twice) in an ugly bumblebee Halloween costume.
After another short stint on the West coast with the LA Kings, the speedy blond-haired forward is once again headed back to the Metro. There is obviously, to quote Taylor Swift, some “bad blood” between Capital-killer Carl “Hags” Hagelin and his new team.
But he’s ours now, and it’s time to turn that “bad blood” into “mad love.” Here are some reasons why Capitals fans can, and should, mad love Hags.
