A highpoint of this Saturday’s second Capitals Fan Convention will be the return of Olie Kolzig. This morning #37 appeared on DC-101 with Elliot Segal, and was deeply reflective about his career and especially about how it ended. Key reflections:
- His career should have ended after 2008 — “Age took over”
- “I’m a Cap through and through”
- Cristobal Huet “would have been better off” had he remained in Washington for 2008-09. His move to Chicago forced the Caps into signing (expensively) Jose Theodore, and now Huet, whose tenure with the ‘Hawks was catastrophic, is playing his pro hockey overseas.
Elliot certainly was right in suggesting that the reception Kolzig will enjoy this Saturday from more than 6,000 red-clad fans will be special.
