The Washington Capitals are bringing back two of the more important players from their Stanley Cup run by getting new contracts done with winger Devante Smith-Pelly and defenseman Michal Kempny.

Smith-Pelly had offers from other teams and took less money to sign a $1 million Jim McMahon Jersey , one-year deal Thursday. A person with knowledge of the move later in the day said the Capitals agreed to terms on a multiyear contract with Kempny. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal had not been announced.

”We all want to come back and play and try it again with the same group,” Smith-Pelly said. ”Obviously it might not work that way, but I think that’s what’s everyone intention to all come back and all be the same group.”

Smith-Pelly and Kempny were key acquisitions for the Capitals who played dividends in the playoffs. Smith-Pelly scored seven goals in the postseason, while Kempny filled the need for a top-four defenseman.

Each player said after the season he’d like to return. For Kempny, it’s the chance to keep an ”amazing” time going after fitting in perfectly alongside John Carlson and found his game under associate coach Todd Reirden.

”I’m very happy here,” Kempny said recently. ”We had plan with Todd, with defenseman coach, and the plan work out very well.”

The Capitals acquired Kempny from Chicago at the trade deadline for a third-round pick. He did not seem to be a favorite of Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville, was largely a third-pairing defenseman in Chicago and doubted his own ability to play difficult minutes against top NHL players.

”Todd, defenseman coach, he get my belief in myself back and I really appreciate (him) for it because when I came here I didn’t believe in myself,” Kempny said. ”I didn’t have confidence enough. Now, I’m back and my confidence is getting better and better.”

The 27 year-old Czech had two goals and three assists while playing 17:42 a game in the playoffs. Even better news for him is Reirden is the strong front-runner to replace departed coach Barry Trotz.

Smith-Pelly likewise got his career back on track in Washington after he was bought out by New Jersey last summer. When signing Smith-Pelly to a two-way Mike Ditka Jersey , league-minimum $650,000 contract, general manager Brian MacLellan called him a ”project” and made no assurances he’d crack the opening night roster.

The Toronto native put up seven goals and nine assists in 75 regular-season games and then had two game-winners during his scoring tear in the playoffs. Being comfortable in Washington and embraced by teammates and fans led Smith-Pelly to take the Capitals’ offer rather than a one- or two-year deal elsewhere with a higher salary.

”It wasn’t worth it to leave somewhere where I’m happy and somewhere where I really want to be,” the 26-year-old third-liner said. ”The money to me personally is not that important if I’m not going to be happy somewhere else.”

Smith-Pelly has 40 goals and 53 assists for 93 points in 341 regular-season games with the Anaheim Ducks, Montreal Canadiens, Devils and Capitals. Smith-Pelly was ready to stop the career carousel.

”It’d be nice to just stick in for one place for a couple years, and hopefully if it works out, longer than just this one next year,” Smith-Pelly said. ”It definitely played a role in the decision. I’m kind of tired of playing on new teams and all that stuff. It’s good to come back and be in the same place consecutive years.”

A 2010 second-round pick who had yet to find a foothold anywhere, Smith-Pelly was more than happy to take a chance on putting up bigger numbers going into unrestricted free agency in the summer of 2019.

”I have confidence in myself that I can carry over from the playoffs and do something and then set myself up for something bigger and more stable later,” Smith-Pelly said. ”It’s definitely betting yourself. That’s what I’m doing, and I’m confident in myself.”

The Capitals wanted him back even after not giving him a qualifying offer Monday as a restricted free agent. Doing so at a cost of $715,000 would have opened them up to an arbitration case and http://www.greenbaypackersteamonline.com/kentrell-brice-jersey , at the very least, kept Smith-Pelly’s salary-cap hit an unknown until the hearing in July or August.

It didn’t get to that point. The team continued to negotiate with agent Eustace King, and Smith-Pelly was more than happy to take a chance on putting up bigger numbers going into unrestricted free agency in the summer of 2019.

”I have confidence in myself that I can carry over from the playoffs and do something and then set myself up for something bigger and more stable later,” Smith-Pelly said. ”It’s definitely betting yourself. That’s what I’m doing, and I’m confident in myself.”



New Buffalo Bills wide receiver Corey Coleman can't escape reminders of Cleveland no matter how hard he's tried to put his two seasons with the Browns in the past.

First, there was the second episode of HBO's "Hard Knocks" series on Tuesday, which detailed how a frustrated Coleman demanded the Browns trade him. And then on Friday, the 2016 first-round draft pick is expected to make his Bills debut in a preseason game at Cleveland.

"Hey, it's going to be weird. But I'm not out there anymore," Coleman said. "I'm just treating it like any other game."

As for TV cameras capturing his final days with the Browns, Coleman said he didn't watch the episode but friends sent him clips. One features Coleman in his vehicle exiting the Browns' parking lot for the last time and saying: "Adios, Cleveland."

"It is what it is. Nothing really to explain," Coleman told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

He added he bears "no hard feelings" toward the Browns.

Coleman appeared to have different feelings a few weeks ago when cameras filmed him entering Browns coach Hue Jackson's office and questioning why he was demoted to practicing with the second stringers.

Jackson told Coleman to ask offensive coordinator Todd Haley.

Coleman responded by saying: "If you don't want me to play Brandon Scherff Jersey , why don't you all just trade me?"

Coleman confirmed to the AP that he asked the Browns to trade him. In a sign of how far Coleman's stock has fallen since being drafted with the No. 15 pick out of Baylor, Buffalo had to give up only a 2020 seventh-round selection to acquire him on Aug. 5.

The 24-year-old will be best remembered in Cleveland for two injury-shortened seasons and far too many dropped passes. The worst occurred late in the fourth quarter of last season's finale at Pittsburgh that sealed the Browns' 0-16 finish.

Coleman caught 56 of the 131 passes thrown in his direction for 718 yards and five touchdowns in 19 games.

In Buffalo, he joins an offense in transition, featuring a new coordinator, Brian Daboll, and a three-way quarterback competition, including rookie first-round pick Josh Allen.

It's also an offense that lacks proven receivers behind starter Kelvin Benjamin.

Coleman's first challenge is learning a new playbook and building chemistry with the three quarterbacks.

He's not made much of a splash during his first week of practice, splitting time mostly with the second- and third-stringers.

On Wednesday, Coleman drew cheers when making an arms-outstretched leaping catch deep up the left sideline, only to have one foot land out of bounds. Before one snap during practice Tuesday, an offensive assistant went up to Coleman and directed him where to line up.

On the plus side, Coleman spends time working after practice and is usually among the last players off the field.

Coach Sean McDermott's intention for Friday is to see how much Coleman can handle, as opposed to easing him in.

"We're getting to the point now where it needs to be the former in terms of: 'Here's the playbook. You've got to know it http://www.indianapoliscoltsteamonline.com/joe-haeg-jersey ,'" McDermott said. "The biggest thing is that we want him to come out, play fast, and play physical."

Daboll said he has no preconceptions toward Coleman based on what happened in Cleveland.

"I just go by what I see," Daboll said. "He works hard. He's on time. He asks good questions."

Coleman's approach hasn't changed since arriving at Bills camp saying he's looking forward to a fresh start and wants to be measured by how he responds to what happened in Cleveland.

"Don't take a day out here for granted," Coleman said this week. "My main goal is getting better and helping the Buffalo Bills win."

NOTES: The Bills had no update on Benjamin, who practiced on a limited basis for a second consecutive day. ... DE Trent Murphy has been sidelined by a groin injury for a second time in three weeks and is expected to miss his second consecutive preseason game. ... The Bills broke camp in suburban Rochester, New York, on Wednesday and will resume practice at their headquarters on Sunday.

Brent Celek is leaning toward retirement, not feeling right about putting “another uniform on.” But he makes it clear that there is one place he absolutely, positively, definitely won’t go.carli lloyd jersey


“Hell no. Do you think I would play for the Cowboys? Philly is my home,” Celek said on 97.5 The Fanatic, via NBC Sports Philadelphia. “If they offered me $10 million Womens Roquan Smith Jersey , I still wouldn’t go.”

Not to worry: The Cowboys aren’t going to offer $10 million or even the veteran minimum. The late retirement of Jason Witten didn’t prompt the Cowboys to seek a veteran tight end.

Celek, 33, spent all 11 seasons in Philadelphia. Before the Eagles released him, Celek said he wasn’t planning to retire. Now?

“I think I’m leaning more toward retirement,” Celek said. “I’ve had a few offers, but none of them are worth leaving a city that I have been in for 11 years where I won the Super Bowl in my final year. It wouldn’t feel right to put another uniform on.”
