Ovechkin joins practice

Alex Ovechkin came out for the final 15 or 20 minutes of practice today. He definitely is still bothered by a strain in his left shoulder, but he's skating and took a few wrist shots. I'll have a video of his session shortly.

Take your time, Ovi... We need you for the end of the season, not right now. Get well!

This Nylander thing is like waiting for the shuttle to launch down here.

T minus one minute and counting.

Unfortunately, the 12PM deadline is only the deadline for teams to place a waiver claim on him if they are so inclined. If a team does indeed claim him, it will probably be announced within an hour, but otherwise this situation won't be resolved any time soon.

Nylander or Tarik?

Chicago and LA are on VS tonight. (Just saw that as I went to nhl.com to check for Nyles update - nothing.) Game is at 8. I don't stay up late, so rarely see LA and I'm curious about good this Kopitar kid is.

Nooooooooooooooooooooo.

Just kidding, and the waiting still goes on.

BB says Nylander not expected to practice with the team again, whehter on the roster or not.

So if he goes back through reverse waivers, and someone picks him up, that's when we split his salary this year and next year correct??

That's correct; it's a pretty undesirable situation for the Caps.

Posted by: cainoo7x | November 9, 2009 12:22 PM | Report abuse

So why roll the dive on Nylander this year when we could have bought him out next year and moved on. Now a team can pick him up for half value the next two years. I guess its pretty much the same really...ugh....what a shame this had to end this way...

Capschick: Just like your assessment that Semin is uncoachable, you are WRONG about the sellouts. Every home game has been a sellout. As far as picking up tickets in front of the stadium, especially against teams from the other conference, that can be done everywhere in the NHL. When a team becomes a hot ticket, like the Caps have, non-fans buy season tickets as an investment and turn a profit when they sell them.

The proof...there are hundreds more tickets available on the ticketexchange this season, which means many season ticket holders are skipping their games. I'm sure there are some season ticket holders that planned on selling some of their tickets but if you look at the ticketexchange closely you will see the same seats available for every game.

Scalpers are not as easy to find either, there is a police presence and they monitor ticket exchanges outside the stadium. I even got approached when I simply handed a friend one of my tickets when we met up in front of the stadium. It has been against the law for a long time, it is being enforced strictly now in my opinion.
