7 goals in 2 games for Ovi.
Shame he's over the hill.

We'll give you a toothless Steen, a bag of pucks and pay for his ticket to STL.

Since he's over the hill

Ovechkin is going to be another one of those great Hall of Fame players who never hoists the Cup. His best opportunity to do so will be when he goes to another team toward the end of his career, like Borque finally did.

I was crossing my fingers hoping that no Hockey player would screw with the National Anthem like the NFL. Well some prick on the Lightning started it. He went to my hometown college too. I hope it was an isolated incident. Asshole.
Not worth sharing the link.

Yea I was about to order Center Ice so I can watch more Pens than Caps and maybe get a Letang jersey for my birthday but that is all on hold right now till I see how they deal with this. I emailed the NHL this morning letting them know.

If this crap continues I may get all caught up on my reading this winter.

For you Hockey fans (I know nothing about the sport), just posted the link to a great documentary on the sport. (Movies & TV Section).

That's the thing with the Capitals, though. They always seem to look so good during the season, and are usually in the hunt for a playoff spot.

Then, for whatever reason, they implode at some point. Either they get a couple of bad breaks, or get outplayed or something. Here's a link listing their playoff futility since drafting Ovechkin back in 2004. That's 13 years of futility that shows no sign of ending.

The Capitals are like the Blues of the Eastern Conference.

Caps D is awful...they need to call up their rookies (which Trotz hates to do) and just bite the bullet and see what Bowey and Djoos can do. Can't be worse than Chorney and Ness.
It's going to be a busy year for Holtby, but the offense shuold be fun. I think Ovi went to the fountain of youth (otherwise known as the gym) over the summer and got himself in shape for this year. Kuzy is awesome, Backstrom may quietly be the most underrated center around, and Oshie is very fun to watch. This team is in for a lot of 5-4 games, I think.

Oh, and that stretch of futility extends well back before Ovi got there. Before the Jagr debacle resulted int eh Caps missing the playoffs and drafting Ovi, the Caps had the second longest streak of consecutive playoff appearances without a Cup (second only to the Blues at the time).

Be kind of funny if Ovechkin wound up with the Blues toward the end of his career and helped them get over the hump and win the Cup.

Two birds, one stone. Shoots and he scores!

Or better yet, he goes to the Blues and they make it to the Cup final, where they wind up playing the Capitals, who go on to raise the Cup a year after Ovechkin moved on. That would really suck for Ovechkin, but that is just the kind of career he's had up until now.

Vegas took James Neal from the Predators in the supplemental draft. I hated to see him go and he's scored 5 goals in the first three games.
