Semin, Morrisonn, Fedorov Out Against Ducks

The morning skate is underway here at Honda Center and it doesn't look like the Caps are going to have any of their injured players for tonight's game against the Ducks.

Alexander Semin (back/shoulder) isn't skating, and when I ran into him a moment ago, he would only shrug when I asked him if he was better. Shaone Morrisonn (groin) and Sergei Fedorov (ankle) are skating, but Coach Bruce Boudreau said he does not expect either of them to play.

Boudreau did, however, say that Jose Theodore will get the start. Theodore started practice wearing -- finally -- his new, red, white and blue mask. But he took it off after a few minutes and is now wearing the old one. I would take that as a sign that he's going to need some time to get used to the new one before wearing it.

The lines resemble the ones I posted yesterday.

I'll have more in an hour.

Tarik, can we get a picture of the mask. I hope Semin is just taking it easy, the Caps could sure use him against the mighty Sharks.

posted this on the end of last thread:

Is the game going to stream on justin.tv tonight? Can someone whose internet is not blocked at work check for me? I'd be much obliged. If I could, I would give the person checking for me a cookie. Not an internet cookie, a real one.

HELP A BRUTHA OUT!

They should just fly Semin home now for treatment. If he is not better after 5 days, then put him on the shelf for 2 weeks and get it over with.

ThisGuy does not get Center Ice. ThisGuy's pockets are not straight enough for that.

Doesn't look like it. Can you email me the cookie anyway? I'm feeling a bit peckish.

Posted by: Greg S. | November 19, 2008 3:06 PM | Report abuse

oo7, they'll be on CSN and CSN-HD (in HD) both today and tomorrow.

ThisGuy is also a geographically challenged Caps fan. Thanks though.

Cookies are in the mail.

Why does ThisGuy refer to himself in the third person?

Posted by: lylewimbledon | November 19, 2008 3:15 PM | Report abuse

ThisGuy just started this trend when explaining he does not have center ice. ThisGuy isn't sure if he wants it to continue.

on puckdaddy trade rumor chat, the Chicago GM said that the nylander to chicago is pretty much a done deal

Posted by: _stevo | November 19, 2008 3:45 PM | Report abuse

Bob Mckenzie reported the deal but didnt say who we would get in return

Posted by: _stevo | November 19, 2008 3:47 PM | Report abuse

@_Stevo - it wasn't the CHicago GM it was Bob Mckenzie on TSN.ca http://www.tsn.ca/blogs/bob_mckenzie/?id=256484

Posted by: SombreroGuy | November 19, 2008 3:48 PM | Report abuse

Good trade if we can get Cam Barker D-Man or Forward Dustin Byfugelin... plus this trade would probaly free up the little cap space needed to get Karl Alzner up here...

Go Caps!

I'll make up for it now

Rats. Well, here's to a 110% performance by all 20 guys for all 60 minutes. Turn the Ducks into Duck and Cover, boys!

Looking forward to seeing Jose's mask when he comes out with it.

As for Nylander - I could get behind an affordable veteran D or a couple of draft picks, and some cap space. Not being sure what we could get for Nylander (beyond something good), we also have to think about what's best for us.

Nooo! Please give an update on Semin. Maybe he just shrugged because he doesn't know English? Did they ever even announce what the specific injury was?

Caps1Fan: "Did they ever even announce what the specific injury was?"

LOL. How do you say "upper or lower body injury" in Russian?

"Lover wody inyury" as influenced by Star Trek's Chekov.

Any other LA based Caps fans going to the game tonight? Rock the Red at the Pond, of course.

Rumors floating, if your into the rumor thing. Nylander to Chicago a done deal once Chicago frees up "cap" space by trading a goaltender. TSN reports.

Hockey Buzz has the CAPITALS in the running for Mat Sundin......that would be interesting if it were doable.....
I don't see it happening , but it's nice to think about the possibility.
