Capitals Insider: November 18, 2007 - November 24, 2007

Semin Out Against Flyers

Winger Alexander Semin did not travel with the Caps to Philadelphia after re-injuring his ankle in practice yesterday. He is officially listed as day-to-day, but I'm starting to get a bad feeling about this. Since hurting himself in the preseason, he's come back three times, only to be forced out...

Hanlon Fired

Coach Glen Hanlon was fired this morning with the Caps off to their worst start in 26 years and mired in last place in the NHL with 13 points in 21 games. The final straw, it seems, was last night's wretched 5-1 loss to Atlanta at Verizon Center, where the...

Scouting the Thrashers

After a miserable 0-6 start got Bob Hartley fired as coach, Ilya Kovalchuk (NHL-best 17 goals) and the Thrashers have been one of the league's hottest teams under new bench boss/GM Don Waddell, winning six of seven and 10 of 14 to climb back to .500. One of those victories...

Tuesday Morning Update

Another day, another lineup shuffle out here at KCI. I guess that's what happens when you've won three of 17 games and are in dead last in the NHL. The mood is pretty somber. Coach Hanlon is skating them pretty hard, probably the hardest I've seen this season. Kolzig has...

Sutherby Reacts

I caught Sutherby on his cell phone a little while ago. He's at the airport waiting for a flight to Anaheim, where he'll practice with the Ducks in the morning and then travel with the team to Dallas for their game Wednesday night. Here's what he had to say: "I've...

Sutherby Traded

Just received word that center Brian Sutherby has been traded to Anaheim for a second round pick in 2009. That was the move that the Caps needed to make to clear space for Alexander Semin, who is coming off IR today. Once considered a core part of the Caps' rebuild,...

Drama In South Florida

Might this work in Washington's favor? George Richards of The Miami Herald reported over the weekend that trade rumors (again) had gotten back to Olli Jokinen, upsetting the Panthers captain, but that he hugged it out with team ownership on Saturday. Richards also mentioned rumors about the Florida dressing room...

Sunday Morning Skate

Everyone is present and accounted for, including Alexander Semin. There's been a shakeup to the lines and parings, though. Here are the new foward combos: Ovechkin-Backstrom-Clark Fleischmann-Nylander-Kozlov Pettinger-Gordon-Semin Brashear-Steckel-Laich Here are the 'D' pairings: Erskine-Morrisonn Schultz-Pothier Poti-Green Jurcina-Eminger Has the Jurcina benching carried over? Looks that way. The spare forwards...
