FrankM73 09-28-2007 09:29 AM

who's going? I'm in 423 Row A...

hoping to see Fleischmann, Green and Backstrom play well (assuming they indeed play)

HockeyCritter 09-28-2007 09:36 AM

wow, so distracted by the GDT you failed to include your 4-3 Caps prediction :sarcasm:


It is the preseason, Drake's GDT's return soon, which is good enough for me.

But a few links:

Caps entertain Flyers on Friday, by Mike Vogel

I didn't see much in the Philly paper about a potential line-up; some of the recent Flyers' cuts: "The Flyers reduced their roster to 32 players, assigning 18 to the Phantoms. Among those assigned to the AHL affiliate were defensive prospects Ryan Parent, Triston Grant, Martin Grenier, Lars Jonsson and Jussi Timonen."

We're probably sitting some of the better players tonight, So sit the studs on the GDT imo.

an interesting update:

"... will not include Steve Eminger, John Erskine, Matt Bradley, Brian Sutherby, Ben Clymer, and Jakub Klepis because they are practicing right now. Brent Johnson is out there too, so expect to see Olie Kolzig in net."

http://video1.washingtontimes.com/in...ts_lineup.html

and his earlier mention of guys not on the ice: Motzko, Bourque (sent down), Boumedienne and Pollock

http://video1.washingtontimes.com/in...ing_skate.html


so trying to understand those updates: Jurcina, Morrisonn, Green, Schultz, Poti, Pothier

Ovechkin, Kozlov, Fleischmann
Semin, Nylander, Backstrom
Pettinger, Gordon, Clark
Brashear, Steckel, Laich

Trying to review to catch the guys I missed

strungout 09-28-2007 11:49 AM

Poti & Pothier?

yeah, I caught that and made an edit, not quickly enough, it appears...

anyone else, I think that is everyone (plus Fehr, injured)

addition:

also, reading into the two non-playing groups mentioned by Corey; the guys not skating: Motzko, Boumedienne and Pollock have to clear waivers while Bourque does not; perhaps all 3 are on waivers...

CapitalsCupFantasy 09-28-2007 11:53 AM

If you want to go, call your ticket rep and free tickets are available....just an FYI.

Hell...that might be the starting defense.

It might even be the starting forward group, too.

Drake1588 09-28-2007 12:24 PM

Agreed. Give or take on or two, that looks like their opening night lineup. Nice.

PSUhockey34 09-28-2007 12:28 PM

Caps 2-1

Otter 09-28-2007 12:32 PM

I predict we win by 12 and I further predict I get my hopes up to an unreasable level.

Foy 09-28-2007 12:56 PM

I'll be there tonight.

usiel 09-28-2007 01:19 PM

Caps win 5-2.

I'll be able to catch only the 1st period online before I have to take off.

There is free preview of NHL center ice between the 29th and the 9th so Sunday game should be on TV/Cable/Sat.

bottleCAPS 09-28-2007 01:23 PM

3-1 caps win.

sk84fun_dc 09-28-2007 01:35 PM

Vogel's post about the line-ups tonight:

8-Ovechkin, 25-Kozlov, 43-Fleischmann
19-Backstrom, 92-Nylander, 28-Semin
18-Pettinger, 15-Gordon, 17-Clark
87-Brashear, 39-Steckel, 21-Laich


Defense
3-Poti, 52-Green
26-Morrisonn, 23-Jurcina
55-Schultz, 2-Pothier


I think the only difference with what I posted in the forward combos is the LW/RW situation with Semin and Backstrom.

All the D pairings that have been used before this preseason

I guess they're doing a full dress rehearsal. But is it really going to be Poti - Green when the season starts?

It's possible.

Poti reportedly played well with Marc-Andre Bergeron last season when he came over from the Oilers. Poti isn't as bad defensively as some want to make him. That being said...I'd still rather see Green with an even more defensive guy than Poti. Erskine, Morrisonn, and Jurcina.

But eh...I'll take it. Getting Green in the line up works for me.

4-3 Caps!

Chimaera 09-28-2007 02:45 PM

I'd like to go, but I'm not gonna fly solo at this. Too short notice to round up my friends I think.

HSHS 09-28-2007 03:00 PM

6-2 Caps

edit: if our "B" team lost 2-1 to this team the "A" guys should throttle them
