Semin Might Play

I didn't get back from Atlanta in time for the morning skate at KCI. But I'm told Alexander Semin (sprained ankle) skated at full speed and looked pretty good. George McPhee was hopeful after last night's game that Semin would be able go tonight. He has not been removed from...

Postgame Notes and Oberservations

I'm going to keep it brief because I've got to be up in a few hours to catch an early morning flight back to Dulles. *Alexander Semin has been placed on injured reserve, General Manager George McPhee confirmed after the game. But since the move is retroactive to when he...

Clymer On Re-Entry Waivers

Not sure what the Caps are up to, but I'm going to ask at the game tonight. He'll clear at noon tomorrow. Update:Okay, I haven't run into George McPhee yet. Not that he would say much about Clymer's situation. But here's his deal: if a team puts in a claim...

Tonight's Lineup

Just arrived at Philips Arena. Here's what I know: Gary Bettman will be in the house tonight. Alexander Semin (sprained ankle) isn't on the trip, and Brent Johnson will be your starting goaltender. Here's the rest of the lineup: Update:Change of plans. This is what it looked like at the...

Semin Out Against Thrashers

Semin did not travel to Atlanta. He's day-to-day with a sprained ankle. That's bad news for him and the Caps, and bad timing for me. I'm running a 40 inch feature on him in tomorrow's paper. The good news? It's not believed to be serious....

Yet Another Semin Update

Alexander Semin (sprained ankle) is taking part in practice, which leads me to the believe he'll be ready for tomorrow's game in Atlanta. I'll try to follow up after the session. And in other unrelated news, the Capitals are wearing those funny-looking socks the Flyers' rookies wore in the rookie...

Update On Semin

I just arrived at KCI, and Alexander Semin (sprained right ankle) was on the ice skating alone. He did some hard cuts, took some shots, but left the ice before practice started. I'll try to get an update on his status later. Jakub Klepis is still here. He's on the...

Steinberg at Caps Media Day

You may have already read DC Sports Bog's take on media day at Verizon Center yesterday. But in case you didn't, wander on over to Dan Steinberg's blog, where he's got items on Donald Brashear and Alex Ovechkin. (Hobby interruption I: As has often been noted, Brashear spent some time...

Caps Are On The Clock

I guess the Caps are waiting until the last minute before making their final move. Twenty-five players were still on the roster as of this morning, though Jakub Klepis wasn't invited to pose for the team picture, which was taken earlier. Read into that what you will. I'm guessing Klepis...

Clymer Clears Waivers

I was told earlier today that Ben Clymer had been put on waivers yesterday and cleared them at noon. Well, I just got that confirmed. He's on his way to Hershey. That means the Capitals must cut two more players by 3 p.m. tomorrow to get to the 23-man, opening-night...

Decision Time

As you probably know by now, the Caps have until 3 p.m. tomorrow to set their 23-man, opening night roster. To get to that number, Coach Glen Hanlon and General Manager George McPhee will have to make some tough decisions. Three players have to go. The veterans who don't make...

Semin Out Tonight

Alexander Semin (sprained right ankle) won't be in the lineup for tonight's preseason finale against the Senators. I did see Alex this morning and he said it felt a lot better. He also wasn't limping as badly as before. Not sure if he's going to be ready for Friday's opener,...
