Caps Make Two More Cuts

The Capitals just announced that they've reassigned forwards Jay Beagle and Mathieu Perreault to the minor-league Hershey Bears. Not a huge surprise, but there ya have it.

It's now down to 18 forwards, 10 defensemen and three goalies in camp. Who's next to go?

Well - it's not a surprise. But I think both players have worked hard in camp and during pre-season. The problem with the Caps is that they are such a young team, there aren't a lot of vets from whom young players can poach positions. With the departure of Brash, Feds and Koz, the roles were given to other vets (Knumble and Morrison). It's a numbers game. But look for Beagle to get the odd call-up this year. I hope Perrault does as well.

Lindsay,

My memory isn't fantastic, so do you think you could post who is still left? Might help spark the discussion a little bit.

Many thanks!

Obviously Neuvy is next to go in goal. Even though he played his arse off, Varly did nothing to relinquish his spot.

At D, I think Sloan has the best chance to makes it with Collins and Alzner going back down. But will BB carry 8 D? I'm leaning towards yes with Erskine only activated against thug teams and the other 7 rotated in the lineup.

At forward, it's anyone's guess. I think Laing has played his way on the team but between Bourque, Aucoin, etc, who knows.

oh yeah, am i really the FIRST to comment?

i think laing and aucoin will be the last men standing in the end(or atleast i hope).the rest will be sent down.alex g. is a great ahl player but thats about it.by the way,what happend to B.Morrison?will he be back for the season opener?

I forget. How many forward spots are open? Is it two? I think BB has a soft spot for Laing so I am betting he is in. Do Giroux or Aucoin have a chance? If it is one or the other, who will it be?

The problem is though, we still have salary cap issues. A trade has to happen to shake up the blue line..if my math is correct. ShaMo or Juice seems to be the verdict. I just want it to happen sooner than later.

Posted by: richmondphil | September 25, 2009 12:46 PM | Report abuse

If Laing stays then because of the waiver situation he should be staying the whole year correct? Championship teams need guys like him anyway.

Are Aucoin and Giroux on the same boat with waivers?

Posted by: rh71 | September 25, 2009 12:48 PM | Report abuse

Everyone remember once everyone is healthy, there is 1 forward slot available. But with Fehr and Flash out until mid to late October, that makes 3 spots as I expect them both to miss the first 10 games and come back in late October.

So Laing and Beagle will both be up to start the year. And I expect we will start with 8 Dmen up to start the year.

Ovie-Backstrom-Knuble
Semin-Morrison-Laich
Clark-Steckel-Bradley
Laing-B Gordon-Beagle

Nylander

Green-Alzner
Poti-Jurcina
Pothier-Schultz

Extras are Sloan and Erskine

Shaone Morisson is traded or put on waivers.

And Theo/Varly are in goal.

Interesting Q&A with Beagle on the ECHL Idaho Steelheads site. He joined them in 2007 for the last half of the season after he left school in Alaska.

caraveli, depends on whether they carry 7 or 8 D. Caps are carrying the seven main guys from last year plus Sloan has looked solid. Since the 13th forward (first bench slot) is Nylander, there's no room for a 14th forward if they keep Sloan.

Posted by: koalatek | September 25, 2009 12:59 PM | Report abuse

Still in Camp

Ovechkin,Backstrom, Knuble, Semin, B. Morrison, Laich, Flash, Steckel, Clark, Bradley, B. Gordon, Fehr, Nylander, Aucoin, Bourque, Laing, Giroux, and Sugden.

Alzner, Green, Poti, Jurcina, Pothier, Schultz, Sloan, Erskine, S. Morisson, and Collins.

Theodore, Varly, and Neuvy

I am pretty sure these are right.

"Green-Alzner

yuck

horrible defensive lineup to start the season. You need some horses, not ponies. And pairing Green with Alzner is a huge mistake. Green makes enough defensive gaffes that you don't want to put the onus on a rookie to cover those up. Mo is still the best option to be paired with MG.

Thats not true. It depends on what a specific team needs at a specific time. If a team needs a quality grinder they'll pick Laing up in a heartbeat. Chicago lost Adam Burish for half the season and they're looking for some more jam on their 4th line. Even though Burish is a center, you get the point. Its not Laing's lack of skills that will keep him from being claimed, its another team's depth at that position which will determine who wants him. Trust me, there's several Laing types being currently employed in the NHL. And frankly he's better than most of em.

Shaone Morisson is traded or put on waivers.

Posted by: ThePat

that would be my vote based on his salary. it provides for a little more cap room. i like juice better than ShaMo anyway

Posted by: Capt_Kirk_in_AZ | September 25, 2009 1:26 PM | Report abuse

I won't claim to understand all the salary cap or contract limit issues facing this team, but unless Tyler Sloan shows marked improvement I don't see this as a ShaMo v Juice argument. IMO you need BOTH players on the team simultaneously and you saw how both players were our best defensemen in last year's playoffs. They were durable, physical, consistent and reliable. You don't just remove one of those players and not expect a letdown defensively. And this team really can't afford to go backwards defensively.

Again, if Sloan can fill ShaMo's void then it would be interesting to see what he would bring back in a trade. I don't think ShaMo is the 2nd coming of Christ here, but he is one of the few defensive defenseman we have who is sturdy, strong and durable. And he's a better skater than Juice or Erskine.

I was able to watch the game on MSG last night. In regards to Ovi's weight and conditioning, the MSG crew talked about it. They mentioned that he had added on weight and was sporting a 6 pack. I think Ovi is ready to roll.

For those of you that kept ragging an Schultz for getting turned inside out last night, shame on you for not mentioning Jurcina getting his @$$ handed to him. One of the Rangers didn't an inside out move, Callahan I think, and Jurcina went down exactly like Schultz. I attribute it to a sweet move more than a poor play, just like I did for Schultz, but that's me.

Theo looked very awkward on the 3rd goal last night. If he would have just shifted across the goal on his knees with his 5 hole protected it would have been a very easy save. There were a others to blame, but it was a very saveable play. Otherwise IMO Jose looked pretty good.

Schultz and Sloan looked solid. Alzner looked a little rough. To be honest I am kind of surprised Beagle is going down, the line with Beagle and Laing looked like a great line and they drew 2 penalties because of their cycling ability in the offensive zone.

@fanohock1

Watching the game last night, how impressed were you with the Rangers announce team? They actually read up and know stuff going on in our training camp. And had very kind words to say about our team, organizatoin and fans. I was impressed.

Posted by: ThePat | September 25, 2009 1:50 PM | Report abuse

I was impressed with everything except for their announcement of who is scheduled to play in goal for us on Sunday. The other 2 in the booth laughed hard, and I can't remember which one said it, but he called poor Neuvy, Heuwirth instead of Neuvirth. I'm sure he lit up the support staff for that typo. The Rangers to have a good crew though. I've always liked Joe Micheletti.

Another thing they kept commenting on was that the Rangers were doing really good against a full Caps line-up. Sorry, a 2nd line of Aucoin/Giroux/Clark, is not our full line-up. Let alone Poti and Pothier missing from the D. I happened to like the Pots boys and think they're an asset, but that's my opinion.

When it comes to BB and the jury still being out, that is definitely the case. I really like BB and the players (except for Nyls) seem to really like his style, and he's been successful. Anything can happen though. Last year at this time did anyone think that Therrien would have been run out of town? Once players stop responding the coach is finished. As of now, the players respond to BB.

touche on Laing and Beagle - they're solid performers.

As to your comment on Juice. Its called the BIG PICTURE. Juice does many things well, so you can forgive a mistake here and there. If Schultz did a lot of things well, then he probably wouldn't take as much heat as he does when he gets spun around like a top for a critical playoff goal. You can always forgive mistakes when the player in question plays the kind of style that Juice does.

I think a couple of these guys are going to be victim of the waiver rules. In other words, the guys who can be sent down without waivers will be even if they earn a spot.

I just don't see ShaMo or any of the existing guys (including Nylander) getting waived so that some team can pick them up at half price. That's just silly.

I agree. I am perfectly fine with him gaining some muscle mass to be even more of a wrecking ball and is even harder to knock off the puck.

Posted by: richmondphil | September 25, 2009 2:47 PM | Report abuse

Fanohock,

The Rangers anouncers are Sam Rosen and Joe Micheletti (sp?) - Rosen is a consummate professional and was partnered with anothe r great announcer in John Davidson for years.

Micheletti mentioned Neuvirth and pronounced his name as it is spelled (Newvirth)and Rosen corrected him by saying "Noy-virt" which I think is correct. They chuckled about Michelettis pronounciation for a minute or so...

I love the Rangers announcers as they are well informed and fair - on both sides of the puck...

Posted by: NJNJ | September 25, 2009 3:06 PM | Report abuse

The standard is 23 players on the roster (14 forwards, 7 D, 2 goalies) so with Flash & Fehr hurt there are 4 spots and 5 players (Bourque, Laing, Aucoin, Giroux and Circles) battling for them. Or they could carry 13 up front and 8 D but that’s not as likely.

Bourque should get consideration based on previous play and I am pretty sure he will be in the line-up on Sunday so the ball is in his court.

Laing I think has earned a spot on this team.

Aucoin might have a ton of energy and decent skills but we have better top 6 talent and his size is an issue for bottom six play.

Giroux hasn't helped his case. If he had scored on his shot last night then maybe but I don’t see it happening.

It really does depend on what happens with Circles. If GMGM can move him then Bourque, Laing, Aucoin and Giroux will all be on the roster opening night. If he isn’t then I think Giroux gets sent down.

I think the D is pretty much set with last years 7 unless GMGM moves one of them. My other thought here is that Sloan gets the nod if he does move one. Nothing against Alzner but the fact that he is on an entry level deal might kill it for him. Sloan would have to go thru waivers to go down while Alzner can go up and down at will.

Posted by: pkendrick | September 25, 2009 3:16 PM | Report abuse

NJNJ: They never did get "Noy-virt" right. Rosen must have been the one to say it, but he said Heurwirth, with an "H", and Micheletti corrected him but said "Noy-virth." We all called him "Noy-virth", well all except for the few linguists that come to this site. Anyhow, Rosen's cheat sheet was obviously wrong. "H" and "N" are common keyboard errors due to their location on the keyboard and that the right index finger (for home-rowers) is used for both. No worries, heck poor Craig L. hammered Varly's name many times by calling him Varmalov.

Posted by: fanohock1 | September 25, 2009 3:23 PM | Report abuse

Remember too Caps fans, someone can snag a player on his way down on waivers, but they have to pay full price. On the way back up they can snag them for 1/2 price. Even with that being said, we are down to some pretty decent players having to go through waivers that would be a decent bargain for other teams, even at full price.

Posted by: fanohock1 | September 25, 2009 3:27 PM | Report abuse

Be watching the league injury reports. When a big name goalie goes down, someone may want an experienced goalie like Theo. That's the only scenario I see for Neuvy to make it here this year...other than an injury to Theo or to...no, I won't say it.

I'm really looking forward to Perreault coming up. He will be one of the fastest skaters in the league soon. Fun to watch. Looks like another powerhouse team in Hershey. They must be happy up there.

NJNJ - you're dead on. I met Sam Rosen and JD after one of the Rangers games before the lockout and they were both very accomodating. 3 of my other hockey buddies and I were on an east coast hockey trip and got to see 6 nhl games in 5 days from ny to dc. Best trip of my life. Any way I used to watch (and still do) Ranger games just because of Rosen and JD when he was there. JD IMO knows more about hockey than hockey knows about hockey. He's now with St Louis and is building a great team there. Sam is still Sam and is just as good as JD. He knows more about teams and their prospects than anybody else I know. He and Mike "Doc" Emrick are fantastic and are icons in the NHL. I have Center Ice and I get to see all the broadcasts from all the teams and I'm not being biased here but Joe B and Locker are great as well. I think they're a step below Same and Doc but you're talking about the elite so that's not a bad place to be. I met Joe B and Locker as well on the trip and they were nice enough to get us into the Caps club there after the game and we were able to meet some more of the caps players. On the other hand, I can't stand Chip or Chick tracey whatever the hell his name is in Carolina. Talk about a biased loser! But Sam is great, always liked that guy, great to listen to.

Wouldn't be a bad idea to have both Schultz and Alzner competing for the final spot and rotating in. Both of them need that sort of kick-in-the-rear at this point in their careers to stay hungry and keep refining their games.

And I still don't want to see both Poti and Pothier in the lineup all season.

I live in Fairfax County between Fairfax City and Chantilly, and I'm thrilled that the games will be on 106.7 (which comes in great) as opposed to 1500 AM (which doesn't come in well during the day and is worthless after they turn the transmitter down at sunset).

Neuvy will be a very good goalie for this team probably next year. I don't think they signed Irbe to be the new goalie coach because he was the best available one out there, he probably got the job because he speaks Russian.

Varly will get every opportunity to be the number one goalie for this team before the playoffs begin and unless he falls apart or Theo gets traded during the season, Neuvy will probably spend another year in Hershey.

Its not that Pothier isn't a good passer, he is. But he's not good making passes under pressure. Usually when the puck gets dumped to his side and he's under pressure from a forechecker, he's going to lose that puck along the boards. He's not strong enough to make that play in most cases. So my point in not wanting both him and Poti in the lineup together is, Poti made a lot of terrible turnovers last season and was horrible in the playoffs. I don't want two defensemen who can't clear the puck under pressure in the lineup simultaneously. You get rid of Poti, then its not as much of an issue having a puck mover like Pothier back there.

we're on the same page, lol
