The Washington Capitals sent Peter Bondra to the Ottawa Senators for a prospect and a second-round draft pick in 2005. The Sens are essentially renting Bondra for the rest of the season as he becomes an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. The local hope is that Bondra can make a run for the Stanley Cup with the Senators, then be resigned during the off-season.

Whoever has Bondra on their fantasy hockey league team should prepare for a boost in his already good stats. Ottawa is a goal scoring juggernaut, and just got better.

Capitals? Senators? With mascots like that no wonder it's hard to get excited about hockey. :-)

Well, I'm a Sharks fan, if that's any help. :D It does seem though, that capitals are required to have either totally innocuous names (Senators - baseball and hockey, Roughriders - CFL, etc), which makes the Redskins a complete anomoly. Personally, I love that one Indian reservation high school that adopted the name "Fightin' Whitey's" a few years ago!

I must say this:

Long live the Mighty Whale.

That is all.
