So Japers' Rink couldn't help but get the "jump to conclusions" mat out when they saw Capitals center Michael Nylander's Potomac, Md. home, purchased for $2,735,000 last October, listed on the market for $3,250,000. (8 bedrooms, 7 full bathrooms, 2 half-bath ... what, no bowling alley?)
Of particular interest: The listing went active on July 17. Nylander, part of a logjam at center for the Caps, has three years left on his deal with a cap hit of $4.875 million. Maybe it's an investment property? Or maybe someone's expecting to hit the transaction wire.
