Check out the video below, or watch it in segments here.

Dang it, I want Katie's job. I wish I got paid to follow the Caps around. Heck, I think I'd rather have Laugher's job. He gets to stay in nicer accommodations. They could add me to the TV crew and I could keep everyone up with what is actually going on during the game when Joe B and Laugher go off on a tangent. Lots of you really rave about them but through NHL Center Ice I have watched every teams TV guys, and even though our guys are not the worst, they are definitely not the best. Laugher is a nice guy, even met him through a mutual friend, but he distracts Joe B. Joe is actually better when he does the game on VS with a color guy from another team IMO. He does a really good job when he's on with Boston's guy Brickley.

if you have read Laich's comments about Sunday, do you now think he was actually benched rather than being hurt? Because thats the sense I get from his quote.

ThePat: He does seem to want to avoid that discussion like the plague. Maybe he was suffering an upper body injury as far as BB was concerned. The most important muscle in the body if you know what I mean.

She never answers any of my questions!

Is it because they all end with wtf?

Yeah I agree with you, and if that is the case I fully credit BB for doing the right thing as we had our back and forth yesterday about it.

"Maybe he was suffering an upper body injury as far as BB was concerned. " - fanohock

Perhaps you are both right...Brooks' upper body injury could have been a heart issue. A lack of heart followed by a broken heart once benched due to the lack of.

But no worries, the recovery time is typically less than 48 hours...and just requires a pep talk, a pat on the back, and the line "this hurt me more than it hurt you, but it will help in the long run" for the docs to clear you to play again.

Nice...I got my HBO 24/7 in there. That kind of thing never works out my for me....maybe I'll play the lottery later.

He was definitely benched, IMO, and then told not to skate the next day and take the day to just relax and be away from the rink. I'll get the inside scoop on it eventually.

I wish the Washington Post would get rid of these video chats.

The chats are during the day, when most people are at work, and it's so much easier to pop over to one of their text-based Q&As and ask a question, and read it in small chunks when you've got a second here or there. I can't sit at my work computer watching video, but it's easy to scroll through the text Q&As later on in the day.

Also - the video sessions only get to like a half dozen questions, while the text ones can do so many more, it's just easier.

Please, please, please stop doing these video chats.
