boo! Felix got hosed. No way is he the 2nd worst player on our rookie squad. He's definitely better than AGus. Pisano I can see being cut.

Schultz get cut? I think about 50% of the fan base will be happy. I think he's in Group C to be with Green.

based on what proof exactly? Vogel's a mouthpiece for the Caps. He doesn't use direct quotes, and he doesn't use any actual letters or emails. As far as I'm concerned, the Caps version of the truth carries less or as much weight as EB and his agent's version.

"One more thing, people want quotes. And they want them from someone besides me. The Caps have opted not to get in the mud here, and they have always avoided speaking about players who are under contract with other NHL clubs. Reasonable people will find that admirable, I believe."

lmao, reasonable people will find that admirable huh? boy, he must really understimate the intelligence of his readers. That is one feeble attempt to manipulate opinion by implying that one must be an unreasonable person not to admire the Caps lack of direct comment on this. This is nothing more than a team using their own media to put out their version.

I'm not even saying its not true. I'm saying, this article/opinion/propaganda piece hasn't proven anything. How do I know if the details provided are true?

questions about camps:

that is a bunch of players! This will sound stupid but...I have to assume that no Hershey Bears camp and no Stingrays camp is possible. This is a training camp for the entire Caps organization.

Anyone see baby Gus play? How has he looked?

Also, I'm surprised Galiev is still up - his junior team is already in action. Will his participating in this camp cost him valuable ice time when he returns to Junior?

Posted by: RedLitYogi | September 17, 2010 5:32 PM | Report abuse

The more I see, the more this looks like a case where the agent has realized that he has in fact screwed up twice, and is trying to lay blame on the Caps. Do I believe the Vogle is unbiased in this? No. But even when all of this broke and I saw that Taco-man's only NHL client was EB, I smelled a rat.

remaining thoughts on the 1st pd

--Monster hit by Dustin Stevenson (think Kyle McLaren) along the boards is mistakenly tagged as an interference call that leads to a PP
-- Finley, again not sure what the heck he is doing defensively, somehow hits himself in the face with something as he's trying to clear the puck. Eakin and his regular RW in this game G Mitchell are the 2 PK forwards and Eakin does a great job of killing off some time. He looks like Todd Marchant to me with better stick skills. He's going to be one heckuva PK forward down the road.
- then MaJo comes out and chooses not to engage the fwd along the boards who keeps the puck in and gets it past Godfrey for a scoring chance. MaJo comes down on a 2 on 1 break and chooses to pass instead of shoot. Odd choice because he had to pass it completely laterally.

-- now here comes a little rant. Rinaldo takes a cheapshot on AGus, levels him with an elbow to the face and AGus crumples. Then Rinaldo stands on top of the player taunting him. Not a single Capital even came over. Pathetic display of teamsmanship. They were afraid of Rinaldo and didn't even want to go check on their fallen teammate because Rinaldo was still standing over him. Check it out for yourself at the 32:10 mark. 5 Flyers in the frame and 2 refs, not a single Capital.
A little too reflective of the general mantra of this team. And what happens when you have a little too much skill and not enough grit. Even Stevenson didn't come over, but Galiev and the other winger just skated away. Not only does Rinaldo keep standing over the fallen AGus, he actually skates into his head as he's lying facedown and stands there.
awrite, i can't watch anymore its making me sick.

Too bad that DeMike won't be at Main Camp. I thought he looked better than Anderson. Any thoughts?

Posted by: capsnnats | September 17, 2010 6:14 PM | Report abuse

Anyone see baby Gus play? How has he looked?
------

from just the 1st pd, i thought he was one of the weaker players along with Hauswirth, Finley, and Pisano (who really wasn't expected to do much.) AGus didn't show much speed, didn't show any tenacity. He looks like he's skating thru the motions a bit. I wouldn't say he slacked off but he doesn't do anything well.

Garrett Mitchell who I was hoping to see make a good showing looked overmatched at times and at other times looked decent at best.
The forwards I thought who stood out were
-Bruess - good with the puck and tenacious as heck
-Kashirsky - showed strength and speed
-MaJo- led the rush a few times and looked to obviously be one of the top skill players
Eakin - showed the best combo of skill and tenacity although his tenacity imo is a tad overrated right now. He's no Ryan Callahan.
Kastrozza- looks like a raw version of Knuble
Kugr - speedy and strong along the boards for his size
Galiev- he looked 'ok', did have the nice drive to the net goal


Defensively, Godfrey wasn't as bad as I heard he was. And he was physical, besides the open ice hit he threw he made a lot of effective hits along the boards and knocked his man down. Stevenson looks like a legit prospect. Smooth skater, poised, physical. I really don't have anything negative to say about anyone except for Finley. He wasn't awful but he was unimpressive and he seems to lack balance on his skates.

@cstanton1 What you must not have seen in the video, I don't know I haven't watched it, is that on the next shift Bruess almost took the head off of one of the Flyers and as he was staking toward the bench at least six of them were up chirping at the Caps bench. That was the one thing about him I liked, of course it was also when he seemed to start looking for the hit and not the puck at all. The rest of the game Philly had stopped cheap shots and things settled down.

For all of those looking for quotes from Vogel or the Caps. No team will ever talk bad about a play where they can be quoted. That is a sure way to make players not want to come. Also the only qoutes that this "agent" came up with were ones that he claims were made. He has come forward with no actual proof and considering how quick he came out and how hard he came out don't you think if the Caps stuff was a lie or even close to a lie he wouldn't be coming out guns blazing looking for a fight. This is a guy who wants to be the star and when someone comes out making him look like he has no clue what he is doing he just stays quite when it isn't true.

There are also too many people here who while names aren't used they can be traced if someone (the agent) wanted to prove the Caps are not telling the truth. If the moving company really wasn't canceled you don't think he would come out and show that it happened like he said or that the Caps had paid it or something. I am sure IF this went to court then the email sent to Ted would be brought out to support the Caps story. Belenger and his agent won't do anything because they already got what they wanted the national (Canada) media already did their story making Belenger look like the one who got shafted. Notice how the only person who has written from the other side is Vogel because the Canadian media already did their story and only did it because the agent basicly wrote it for them since 90% of the article that came out was the email he sent them.

The agent will never get another player to sign with him. Even if all he says is true he kept his client tied up for all that time with no deal and no commitment from the team. He then tried to make it look like the Caps were telling him that it was going to happen only too back out. His story has way to many holes in it for it to be true. If it happened like he says it did why did he send the media an email he sent instead of one the Caps sent him? Because it didn't happen anywhere near like he said and he was just trying to cover his behind after he was caught with his pants down.

The Belanger piece situation is over and done with. Both sides have kind of said their piece. This won't go to court. The actual chain of events is probably a combination of the two stories. Belanger's agent had to come out and say something if he wanted to keep Belanger as a client, otherwise none of this would have come out. Belanger's agent screwed up, Belanger, screwed up and the team did screw up, all different levels of screw up. I put most of the blame on the agent.


Onto the next thing, Dan Rosen had a nice sit down with GMGM. Probably the most open he has been on a lot of things. Of note from the interview was this piece:

NHL.com: One other guy I wanted to ask you about is Alexander Semin. He's on a one-year deal now and he's probably the most enigmatic 40-goal scorer in the League. On a night to night basis, do you know what to expect out of him?

McPhee: No. Nope.

NHL.com: How do you handle that?

McPhee: You try to make him the best player he can be and be as consistent and reliable as you want all players to be, and then you hope it kicks in someday. Maybe this is the year that it happens. But he's a terrific talent, he makes our team better. Some players are low maintenance and don't require a lot of work, and other players do. He requires a lot of work.

NHL.com: Will this be the year that determines if he's part of the future plans?

McPhee: Yup. Yup.

About this whole Vogel thing... How do we even know that Vogel is told the truth? It would be easy to claim that you don't lie to your fans, if your mouthpiece thinks he's telling the truth even if he's not.
To me, the people who stink the most are Belanger's agent(s). They cost their client over a million dollars because with no plan B and nothing legally bound they sat on Washington's offer for far beyond too long. They are shooting off at the mouth now in a sad attempt at saving face with their client and their reputation.

expecting Vogel to uncover the truth about the whole Belanger deal is like expecting Ron Ziegler to implicate his boss in the Watergate break-in during one of his press conferences... where are Woodward and Bernstein when you need'em??

Posted by: joek443 | September 17, 2010 9:28 PM | Report abuse

On the EB thing, I have been critical here of McPhee, the agent (Joe Taco), Belanger to some extent and to the Post for not writing an independent story. I was also critical of Vogel's first blog.

One thing in Vogel's new blog is he specifically (it's in bold) says the offer to Belanger was IF a contract was moved. Belanger clearly said it wasn't if but WHEN. Subtle difference.

The chain of events with the moving company, which could be (hint, hint, Post) independently checked, at this point supports the team.

This ain't Watergate. The Post's writers don't need to go into harm's way to get the story. The Post should have a writer talk to Joe Taco and ask to review the supposed taxt from Fishman, the text that allegedly confirmed the original offer. The Post writer should try and review the text message to determine if it was a bonifide offer like Belanger says or a completely conditional offer like Vogel alludes to (sorry for ending sent with prep).

Finally, the Post writer should try and contact the moving company. And maybe the wife of that player (Mrs Chris Clark?) mentioned, but not by name, in Vogel's new blog entry. Did Belanger try and make the move after the Caps said not to? That's clear evidence in support of the club.

Mike Vogel is not independent in this, no more independent than Joe Taco.

Memo to the sports editor at the Post: Can you assign a writer to follow-up on this? Maybe someone outside the hockey beat who wouldn't be afraid to hurt feelings if need be with the club. The world doesn't depend on this story but why not perform the post-mortem and tell us the TRUTH on why the patient died. We'd like to know.

Thanks, tominsocal1

And, before you ask, I CAN HANDLE THE TRUTH!

ps: It's real issue IMO that the Post writers, and sportswriters in general, seem timid in the face of club executives. Maybe that's just how it is, but writers OTOH sure aren't afraid to go after politicians. And, entertainers. Why do sports executives get off so easy?

Posted by: tominsocal1 | September 17, 2010 9:45 PM | Report abuse

Oh, one more thing, when the Post (finally) assigns a writer to cover this story, ask this question:

Did the Washington Capitals at any time in the Tomas Fleischmann negotiations indicate to Flash's agent that Flash should "take it or leave it" on the $2.6M as the club had an alternative player waiting in the wings?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Posted by: tominsocal1 | September 17, 2010 10:06 PM | Report abuse

What I don't understand is this. The team is under the cap. Even without a trade, Belanger could still have been signed. He is a veteran. He wins faceoffs. He is defensivley better than Fleischmann. However the Caps unceremoniously let him walk. Now I read on the GMGM interview on NHL.com that Flash is the #2 Center. Nothing against him as a wing, but I was pretty sure he did not excel at the Center experiment last season. It just doesn't add up for a team that considers itself a contender...

that's small consolation. You shouldn't have to wait for a teammate to come off the bench to have a reaction to a hit like that to your teammate. It looked like Wild Kingdom. Rinaldo the lion makes a devastating kill shot and AGus's 4 teammates on the ice act like gazelles and look on from a distance while Rinaldo stands over his kill. There wasn't a freakin Cap in the frame. 5 Flyers, one downed Cap rookie, and 2 linesmen.

Even if no one fought Rinaldo, at least skate over to your teammate and get Rinaldo off the guy. He circled around to the fallen Gus and stuck his skate right into his helmet.

I doubt very much if Bruess had done that to a Flyer ex#1 pick that he wouldn't have gotten jumped right then and there. And the Flyers didn't even dress a tough lineup for that game.

say what you will about Glen Hanlon, at least he understood the concept of team toughness and imparted that to his team. He didn't much talent at his disposal and he didn't have the creativity to get the most out of that talent. But at least for most of his short tenure he constructed a team that stuck up for each other and didn't let cheap shots simply go unanswered. Even in exhibition games. Chris Clark went right after I think it was Andrew Peters who cheapshotted a kid who wasn't even a bluechip prospect. And in the press conf after the exhibition game, Hanlon made it a point to talk about how impressed he was with that action. The fact that it was a legit NHL tough guy that Clark went after, and the fact that the victim of the cheapshot wasn't a name player

Too bad you can't inject the valuable part of Hanlon's persona into Bruce. This isn't about goonery. This is about fostering a mentality that raises the competitive level and camaraderie of an entire organization, from veterans to rookies.

For being such a know it all you make some stupid statements. Hanlon was a horrible coach PERIOD. He didn't have talent to work with??? Are you kidding me??? BB took a team that Hanlon lead to a 6-14-1 record and had them finish the season 37-17-7. Yes, I know Huet, Feds, and Cooke were added but only because BB already had the team winning and fighting for a playoff spot. Hanlon had Backstrom playing wing on the 4th line with Brashear. Yeah, Hanlon was an awesome coach! One of BB's first acts was moving Backstrom up to the 2nd line and to center.

The lasting memory of Hanlon as coach is the last few games the Caps played under his watch they were out there on the ice looking like the American soldiers on the Battan Death March.

Criticize BB all you want for his strategy (I have) and aspects of the game he ignores, but he is a top-notch motivator.

In all honesty, Boudreau is a coach who does indeed develop his players. He's done a great job at that. BTW, he first lined up Backstrom at 4th line center between Brash and Brads. Neither could convert their repeated chances.

Anyway, Boudreau is a proven developer of talent. He's also proven his teams flame out in the playoffs. It was true at Manchester, and its true with the Capitals.

The Bears have gone on to win Calder Cups since Bruce left. That's multiple Cups. Which means, basically that players win titles.

Couple of updates not involving Belanger - Backstrom has now officially moved into the former Theodore residence in Arlington. Theodore was back in the house not even a week ago, so I guess he has moved back to Montreal until something materializes.

Second, for the fellow car geeks here, Green has a wicked new ride - a tricked out Bentley Continental GT. He had it over at Backstrom's house this evening. Made Nick's AMG S63 look like a Honda Accord.

Bruce won a Cup at Hershey. He also won an ECHL Cup in Mississippi. Has any coach ever won ECHL, AHL, NHL? He could be first.

Despite the shotcomings, Caps have as good a chance as any team for Cup this year. About 1 in 10.

A few roster tweeks and odds could be upgraded.

No, I'm not saying to bring back Nylander.

BTW, will Vogel ever write "And that's the rest of the story" on Nylander?

lol, are you kidding? Topnotch "motivator"?
The recurring issue with this team is the overabundance of skill that ISN'T complemented with an equally strong or consistent work ethic. You can go and find 20 articles over the past 2 seasons on the caps scratching their heads about "flat performances". How does that equate to BB being a strong motivator? He knows how to be offensively creative and give offensive players a chance to shine. That's largely the extent of his contributions. Defense and PK are just words to him. And his teams are unable to significantly raise their level of play to match playoff intensity. I'd say his ability to motivate his players to the best of their ability is in serious question.

--------

that is true, but any coach at the end of his tenure has his players looking like that. Once a coach loses his players, a change has to be made. I don't recall an all-out mutiny by any stretch but Hanlon was clearly not getting the job done. But he did also play a valuable role in the beginning of the rebuild in establishing an identity and work ethic for a team that was overmatched on paper on most nights and who did overachieve in the beginning. And he was the 1st Caps coach since Schoenfeld who got his team to play with team toughness. No matter what his eventual downfall was, you can't take that away from him. And that was my point. Not to compare Hanlon with Bruce on an overall set of characteristics. Just a specific one which had to do with imparting a certain work ethic and grit. Which of course Fanock conveniently ignored in his rebuttal.

Hanlon helped build a foundation and identity. Bruce took this team to the next level by mining all of its creativity into something productive. And now the next coach and GM should enter the stage for the final phase. Hanlon had his shortcomings, and so does Bruce.
