Capitals accept differences of opinion on White House visit

WASHINGTON (AP) The news is constantly on television at the Washington Capitals' practice facility, and like any workplace, there's no shortage of opinions.

"We're human beings, and people share different opinions and different political views," veteran team leader Brooks Orpik said. "It's no different than anybody else. People that are friends vote for different people."

Those differences were on public display the last week when two players said they would not join their teammates in visiting President Donald Trump at the White House on Monday to celebrate their Stanley Cup championship. Canadians Braden Holtby and Brett Connolly said they'd respectfully decline the invitation.
