Ted Leonsis Smacks Down Writer Who Suggests Jaromir Jagr Should Return To Washington Capitals

Any rumors that former Capital Jaromir Jagr could wind up back in DC if he comes back to the NHL were shot down emphatically - and rather wittily - by Caps owner Ted Leonsis.

In response to a piece from thehockeywriters.com that suggested Washington as a plausible - and very possible - destination for the 39-year-old Czech forward, Leonsis called the site"Fiction writer. NOT hockey writer." He then posted a link to the piece he was referring to.

If nothing else, this exchange shows that Ted Leonsis, 54, who also owns the Washington Wizards, is a pretty awesome blogger. It took him all of five words to completely shoot down the type of shoddy, guess-work conjecture that all too often replaces real journalism and ends up creating ridiculously off-base rumors.

Kudos to you, Mr. Leonsis. We here at SB Nation love it when other blogs make us look good by comparison.
