"This is all just talk. Words can get twisted. There was no talk at all that I am not going to sign with the Capitals for sure. I have not talked to them [the Capitals] about leaving. And please don't ask me questions about the next season anymore."

Maybe he's right about the words being twisted. Maybe he's not. But what has me wondering is the "don't ask about next season" comment.
If it were as simple as him wanting to come back to the Caps, don't you think he would at least address it? Tell everybody "My intentions are to return to Washington", which would at least put the rumor to rest. Instead, you now have people like me wondering what he meant by his last comment.
