the on frozen blog is pretty awesome. I don't konw the depths of their connections to the caps, but imagine one day youre posting opinions about a hockey game and the next day the owner of the caps is comping a trip to moscow to watch hockey. Pretty sweet deal

What about doing some coverage of the Hershey Bears playoffs? Are there are any prospects down there that we may be seeing or should see in the next year or two?

US Hockey has a direct link to the Caps' coverage on their front page, which is always interesting to see.

Da Bears,

There are several players for Hershey that saw siginificant playing time for the Caps THIS season, including Jeff Schultz, Mike Green, Jakup Klepis, and Tomas Fleischmann, who isn't having anywhere near as good a Calder Cup playoffs as he did last year. Everyone be sure to go up to Hershey on Friday for game 5 against the Baby Pens!

Viktor Dovgan, Patrick Mcneill, are a couple of defensemen to keep an eye on. McNeill is a lefty shooting offensive type who has been described as more than adequately reliable defensively. Dovgan is a physical defenseman type with some offensive game. He favorite player was Gonchar, but he loves the physical stuff.

As far as forwards go, Andrew Joudrey is getting some big minutes and PK time despite only just joining the Bears out of college. Andrew Gordon is a scoring RW that McPhee says has abetter than average chance at cracking the roster next year.

Fehr is injured, Flash is having an okay offseason, not as good as last season btu he isn't disappearing. Klepis is playing pretty well, but I doubt he'll put it together in the NHL for the caps. He might be increasing what little trade value he has right now.

Daigneault hasn't seen any time at all this playoffs, but was a good goalie when Cassivi went down. From what I've read, he'll make a good backup capable of playing semi long stretches if the starter goes down. This will because once we get an elite goalie (Neuvirth or Varlamov most likely) ready to start in the NHL we'll need a trustworthy backup whom the players have confidence in to play to keep our starters from gettign burnt out before the playoffs.

I should clarify a little, Dovgan isn't playing for the bears this playoffs, but should be starting there next year. McNeill just joined the team after bing out with an injured hand that he played with in his juniors playoff run. I'm hoping he can get a game or two with the Bears if the PP struggles continue for them.

I am a HUGE fan of hockey, but to me the Worlds don't spur that much of an interest. I guess its because I've never been a game or really seen one of those games on tv. I don't really feel that urge to root for the USA like in the Olympics. Also since it is not a true test of the best players in the world since some NHLers are still on duty, it hurts some of its appeal with me.

I would rather USA media concentrate on spreading the news about the Stanley Cup Playoffs first.

Just because people in the US don't care about the Worlds it doesn't make this tournament any less important to true hockey fans, including Canadians. Sure, you'd rather follow the AHL.

The best international hockey tourney is the WJCs

Whats the difference between teh Worlds and the Olympics? Its not like before when there were amateurs in the Olympics. Then it would be more fun to watch.

Watching an All star international tourney is not very fun once, let alone every chance they dream up an excuse to do it.

You can watch the Hockey World Championships live on this site, www.WCSN.com, including full replays of all games. Bummer Ovechkin and Russia lost to Finland earlier, great game.
