Capitals recall defenseman Brian Fahey

Washington announced that it has recalled defenseman Brian Fahey from Hershey, which likely means that either Tom Poti (lower-body injury) or John Carlson (leg) will not be fully available on the three-game road trip that begins Wednesday in Carolina.

More to come.

Nylander and his broken neck were left off the injury report from the previous post

@ griz0615

Nylander injured or not has no effect on the caps, only the bank balance. If he is out long term due to injury they can have insurance pick up his salary.

Everyone criticizing GMGM or Ted L, or whatever the target may be regarding not mentioning Nylander are making assumptions. Nobody on here has any idea whether or not the Capitals have contacted the Nylander family. My opinion, if the Capitals were to do that they probably wouldn't publish it. If they do publish it someone on here will undoubtedly have something negative to say about the publicity. The Caps can't win whether it be a win on the ice, or dealing with players in any capacity. Luckily real hockey people don't spend time reading dribble from a lowly blog.

Fahey better bring it if he plays, guy had a rough first NHL game last time. The amount of injuries so early in the season is a little mind boggling.

I wish 3MM would have no effect on me, lol.

So is Ovi a dick for all the stuff in the GQ article?

@griz

I consider Ovie a success for overcoming the obstacles he had to...it is easy to judge Ovie for his lifestyle and personality, but he did not grow up in happy Canada or with a good government, schools, and democracy. He grew up in post-soviet Russia...It was not a pretty place to live, it was not a safe place to live, and it was definitely not a happy place to live. These Russians had to live in a very cruel world and I think their culture and subsequent personality reflects that.

Not only is Fahey up but Nycholat is at Kettler for practice. According to Corey though Nycholat would have to sign an NHL contract to be able to play. We have such tremendous depth in the organization though, right? At least thats what I've been told for the last 3 years. For heaven's sake make a trade for an NHL quality healthy Dman, you have a surplus of F's. For one time use logic GMGM.

Really doesn't speak well of their confidence in the other D options that part time Green last game was preferable to calling someone else up.

I have a crazy idea why don't we resign Milan Jurcina in the off-season for, I don't know, about 1 million a year. That way when we have an injury we don't have to play 2 guys (Sloan and Fahey) who shifts should be shoveling ice off the rink during the breaks.

I have another idea, pick up somebody on waivers when teams did the final cuts.

If we did either we could have sent down Sloan so he can be the 1st call up. I'm okay with GMGM not making getting a center this off-season. We really needed another d-man. I don't know if Flash give us much return in a trade. He is UFA next year. No playoff team would want a guy who gets scratched in the 7th game last year. A team out of the picture is looking for young talent not UFAs.
