The end is near, finally

Sunday’s match-up against the New York Football Giants marks the final contest of the season for our Washington Redskins, and perhaps the final contest of the year for the Giants. It will most likely be the last time we associate...

The WJCs are better than the Olympics

After the Olympics this year, the debate began again over whether the pros would go back to the Games in 2014. Lost in all the debate was the fact that we already have a tournament played every year that I...

A weekend's worth of thoughts

Perreault to Wing? We saw the best and worst of Mathieu Perreault over the past two games. He played great Sunday night against the Canes, creating chances, netting his fifth goal and drawing the Caps a major penalty in only...
