I want to be here when this team peaks. Our goal is to make make the playoffs. But I think in the next two or three years we should have legitimate shot [at contending for a Cup]. I want to be around to experience that."Next two or three years..." For those of you who follow such things, Kolzig is an unrestricted free agent after the 2007-2008 season. When asked about any talks about an extension, Kolzig utters the requisite "I'm just going to play hockey and let George [McPhee] and my agent take care of that when the time comes" comment. Given that McPhee will have to deal with expiring contracts for Alexander Ovechkin, Alexander Semin, Boyd Gordon, Brian Sutherby, Steve Eminger, Shaone Morrisonn, and Mike Green, it should be a very busy next off-season for the GM.
Well, if he's still here, that is.
