Tyler Sloan assigned to Hershey for conditioning stint

By Katie Carrera

The Capitals announced that they've assigned defenseman Tyler Sloan to Hershey for a conditioning stint.

Sloan has appeared in 19 games this season, the most recent on Dec. 26 against Carolina, and has been on and off the injured reserve list throughout the first half of the year while suffering through groin and hip flexor problems.

According to the NHL's collective bargaining agreement, conditioning loans will not extend for more than 14 consecutive days and players on conditioning assignments still count toward the team's 23-man active roster limit.

Does that mean Taylor Swift is being called up?

FYI, I am not a rumor monger, but there seems to be a lot of chatter out there.

I think the Leafs think they can make a run at the postseason. If that's the case, Burke may be coming after Semin.

If any GM thinks Semin can anchor a team they are mistaken. Just like if the Nationals think Jayson Werth can anchor their lineup they are mistaken. Semin is a great second fiddle but not a top player. He needs to be the little fish in the big pond.

Fehr is skating on the top line today. Knuble with 90 and 21. Beagle on the 3rd line.

It's time for Fehr to step up. I have posted many times he would pot 300 over ten years. He had +50 two years running in the WHL. He's got the size and has done it before. The Caps desparately need him to get in front of the net and show at least one quarter of the spark Ciccarelli did.

The Laich-MoJo-Knuble should be good too.

Fehr needs to take advantage of this situation and pot a couple this evening. If he can prove that he can play on the 1st line and 21-90-22 look good that would make Semin even more expendable come the trade deadline. The Kings are getting desperate and may be willing to part with a couple pieces to get Semin.

I sure hope DJK has worked his stomach in order to handle the hot dog eating void that was left by Esskay. Thats a lot of dogs that need to be eaten.

Really like Mojo's game of late. I think he's going to be a great player for us in the coming weeks and months.

Responsive defensively, a few nice moves, good vision. The kid also has no fear. He'll go into a corner with anyone.

@ SAOTI

I know your a happy camper today :)

I've been a fan of MarJo all along but one thing I've not been impressed with is his playmaking; an NHL center - especially a purported #2C - needs to be a much better passer than what he's shown, so far at least. We shall see.

P.S. And you absolutely can NOT cough it up at the opposing blue line, which he did at least twice last game.
