So let me get this straight

by Anne

  • Teddy Purcell who has spent time on all four lines and in the press box this season and has been accused of having no identity gets slated into the top line with Smyth and Kopitar? I'm all for attempting to re-ignite his game but from press box to top line in one day seems like a strange turnaround. Simmonds for Willy's spot!
  • Tonight the Kings play the Wild for the 2nd time this season. The last time they played them was October 8th when the Wild were struggling mightily. They've since righted that ship and have played much better since then.
  • The Caps traded their Captain and Milan Jurcina to the Blue Jackets for Jason Chimera. Now begins the "Who gets the C?" rigamarole. The two nominees on Twitter were Ovechking (hurl) and Laich (yes, please) with a few nods to Mike Knuble.
  • The Caps are teetering on the edge of falling into the "ubearable" category currently only occupied by the Chicago Blackhawks. If they pick Ovechkin, they'll be firmly entrenched and probably more unbearable than ever before, far more so than the Blackhawks.  
  • But let's be honest, I can never hate the Caps. I still like them. I can talk a big game but they are fun to watch.
  • Staffy is back playing on a line in practice. Hopefully the message was sent that he needs to step up his game and play the way he's shown he can in the past. Festivus or no Festivus.
  • Only 92 days til the Nashville game :) :) :) :) :)

  1. How can the Blackhawks possibly be more unbearable than the Capitals? I admit, the Hawks hop all over the line between "adorable" and "annoying" (and Kane gets on my nerves), but no team is more obnoxious than the Capitals.

    I voted for Team Canada about a billion times, gave Team USA a healthy share, and threw a few votes a day at the rest of the planet. That is the proper spirit for voting, yes?
