The Capitals have already expressed some interest in visiting the White House as the NHL's newest Stanley Cup champions, but at least one of their players won't be making the trip.

His loss. Not ours or the Presidents.
Stay home asshat, no one will miss you and probably more will be happy you are not there.
What a disrespectful loser. Don’t invite any of them.
Ovechkin is going?
I would invite them but not as a team event. Only as a mixed event with wounded troops. Individual rsvp required.
Too bad, so sad. You are a man of DIShonor, title or no title.
And buy yourself a front tooth.
all for one and one for all or get stuffed
Could someone please tell me what Trump EVER said that would make a black hockey player unhappy?
Russia Russia Russia!!!!
It should be a requirement of their contract to go respectfully visit the President of the United States upon winning a championship.
If not, cut them from the roster, and don’t give them a championship ring.
And in this case, remove Smith-Pelly’s name from the Stanley Cup!
Will the President cancel the visit altogether?
A Black, Canadian Hockey player at that.
Has he stopped celebrating yet? They're trip to Nats Park was hilarious.

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
He’s Russian, what do you expect? The Stolichnaya is flowing.
I can count the number of people who care on one finger...
It comes to Devante Smith-Pelly......
I dont know anything about him, but Id say this is his fifteen minutes...no, make that seconds.
I didn’t even know he was Canadian————the Habs should recruit him-—and keep him.
