Video: Boudreau on WPL (Updated)

Caps Coach Bruce Boudreau was a guest on Washington Post Live yesterday to discuss the No. 1 goaltending job and his concerns about wear and tear on players in Olympic years. Boudreau also revealed a built-in excuse in case he messes up the first pitch at Nationals Park tonight. Check out a clip:

Update: I stopped by KCI this morning and saw Boyd Gordon, Brent Johnson, Jeff Halpern and a few non-NHLers getting in a workout. Brian Pothier was also back after his wife gave birth to their third child but first girl, Reese, two weeks ago.

Prospect Anton Gustafsson has also arrived in town, I'm told. He didn't skate today -- he's waiting on equipment -- but will be getting on the ice soon. The fact that he's here more than two weeks before the start of rookie camp is a pretty good indication that he's serious about starting his career in North America this season.

Also, as I've previously mentioned, the next wave of Caps -- Matt Bradley, Dave Steckel, John Erskine and a few others -- are due in town any day now. So keep an eye out for some player features early next week.

My Orioles need Bruce more than the Nats do.

Competitive camp should be good for all the players. When does it start?

I hope they get Nyjer Morgan to catch the coach's first pitch. Then Boudreau can invite T. Plush to skate with the Caps.

the way BB was talking yesterday about getting in a little throwing practice, I wouldn't be surprised if he brings some heat!

And Thanks Tarik - I"m looking forward to your camp updates!

I hear Nylander is in the best shape of his life and fully expects to center Ovie on the first line.

Torn rotater cuff ... love it. He'll pitch it better than Butler or Obama.

Sad news, forgive the Babelfish translation:

The second child of Jose Theodore and St├ęphanie Cloutier lost the life with l' two months age, last Friday. The cause of the death of the son remains unknown. The couple Theodore-Nailsmith has a girl, Romy, born on March 22, 2006, which tested respiratory problems with its birth, but which goes well, now. One second pregnancy s' was finished by a miscarriage, in 2007.

Whoa....Jose Theodore lost a child?

That is awful news....My thoughts are with Jose and his family...

poor Jose.. I saw this on a couple of websites now.. if its true it could be something he had on his mind all season since his daughter was born early and his wife had a miscarriage before. I hope people are respectful..
