Steinberg Comes to Kettler

If you haven't already, wander over to the D.C. Sports Bog and read about Matt "Recyling Captain" Bradley, Brent Johnson's new mask and other interesting Caps-related stuff.

Trust me, it's worth your 10 minutes.

He came out of Agent Zero's butt for air long enough to head to Kettler?

I second "Wow's" comment. Any Caps coverage by WaPo is appreciated, but its clear Steinberg has a huge man-crush on Gilbert.

Why didn't Steinberg show up for training camp? Where was Bog the coverage of opening night?

Pothier: has a hole in his stick that the puck goes through. Every period of every game.
Fehr: Can you say Yonkman?
Flash: in the pan.
Erskine: Sigh
Eminger: Yawn
Pettinger: Every other role player.
Laich: Cloned from Pettinger's toenail.
Steckel: Job security.
Bradley: No one can take his spot; chew on it.
Brashear: "These other guys should get more ice time than me because why???"
Kozlov: Stellar mediocrity.
Poti: One trick pony.
Green: Looking good.
Jurcina/Morrison: What a relief.
Nylander: "What the hell have I done?"
Backstrom: Too soon to know, honestly.
Clark: Thank you.
Gordon: Thank god.
Motzko: Are you ready yet?
Schultz: Not yet.
Ovechkin: "What do you mean its over, Ted?"
Semin: "Whatever, I can score alone."
Kolzig: "Not again..."
Johnson: "Make it stop..."
Hanlon: Um...

Things are as they are. No sense in kidding ourselves, or eachother.
I still love hockey (and the Caps)!!!
Pens on Saturday.

Wow. Bradley's gone green and Ovie lost a tooth. We all knew this stuff last week, and his "quotes" from Ovie ran almost verbatim on Comcast last Saturday. Did we need Steinberg to tell us? We're at "war" with Iraq, too, Dan. Way to go, scoop.

I guess Gilbert must have been in a coma on Wednesday, eh?

Quite ironic that Bradley started the recycling campaign when some would argue he's a recycled player.

Not that he's been horrible, I'm just saying...

Sutherby is in a tough position. He didn't win a spot in the lineup out of training camp. He's a depth player at this point, waiting for a chance to get back in. The problem is, when he gets in, he's rusty because he hasn't been playing. It's a vicious cycle.

There were way too few games to begin this season. They should have played every other day or two until now, garnering about 3 - 4 more games than they've played. Practice is nice, but it screws with the game-time chemistry, especially during these prolonged breaks.

And it drives the fans insane. We see a tired team who played the night before and will play the day after tomorrow, then not again for an entire 5 days. And if they have a bad game? We have to dwell on it for as long. The players at least get to move on and start trying to fix those problems. Otherwise, we do what we've done this week to the message boards.

Who devised this terrible schedule?

And I don't want to hear "Bettman is the devil." He's not great, nor is he good, even, but he doesn't do everything. Someone else had to have had a hand in this...

They're making an effort to play more games on Thursdays and weekends, especially in "soft" markets. that's why the schedule seems so weird.

There's also a matter of arena availability. The Phone Booth gets gunked up by the horse show every year when the season is just starting, and alot of other teams have to share their buildings with a basketball team. Us, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Dallas, Atlanta, LA, Toronto and Denver all have NBA teams and there's minor leagues in some places plus all the other stuff that goes on at arenas. I wouldn't want to be an NHL scheduler.
