Caps PR Staff Honored

Washington's media relations staff -- Nate Ewell, Kurt Kehl, Paul Rovnak and Julie Petri -- have won the 2006-07 Dick Dillman Award as the NHL's best PR staff. (I hope I'm not forgetting anyone.) They are all true professionals and a pleasure to work with.

"We're privileged to work with the members of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association on a daily basis, and truly honored that they have bestowed this award upon our group," Ewell said in an email. "We owe a lot of thanks to the players we work with and the leadership of George McPhee and Ted Leonsis in establishing a media-friendly culture throughout the organization, not just among the media relations staff."

Now if one of them could just get George McPhee on the phone with me soon. Just kidding (not really).

Congrats guys.

Why do you think Gartner is at the draft tonight? Caps to announce they are retiring Gartner's jersey. Cause he was such a great playoff performer :-)

Hey AV, great comment!
Tarik, you forgot to mention the OFB guys as they really have become an unofficial PR-site of the Caps that promotes Leonsis' films and defends every move the Caps ever made.
And of course, Alzner is a great pick!
