the only thing i can fault GMGM for is not having a contingency plan for Kolzig. i guess he figured that he go til he was 40 and then future GMGM would have to deal with that problem.

also, he's doing an okay job with the D corps, but his plan is a little different than what i would like.

he's trying to build a defense from within, with roll players filling the holes.

they need to hit UFA's and shore it up.
Not true, and certainly unprovable as a FACT.

George McPhee....The Teflon GM. 15 years of failure and counting....

6 - Number of playoff series the Capitals have won since George McPhee took over as General Manager in 1997 (which makes him the third-longest-tenured GM in the League), three of which came in McPhee's first season on the job.
