Good news and bad news

After early camp and 3 preseason games, we have good news and bad news.

Good news:
1. Zubrus is getting a full Capitals camp for the first time and is already the best player in camp. This could be a major developement for the Capitals. It could also provide an interesting source of motivation for Jagr. If Zubrus were to finally maximize his potential as an 80pt NHL player, could he also with a hot streak out of the gate threaten Jagr's position as the best player on the team and force the big guy to find his game.

2. Bondra remains the same passionate dangerous player.
3. Gordon and Sutherby seem to be having great camps.
4. Both the PP and the PK have been effective
5. Darcy Verot...is he challenging Peat and Henry for that roster spot after contributing in more ways than just dropping the gloves?

Bad news:
1. Yonkman injuried and not playing. This increases the chance that guys like Kwiatkowski, Boumedianne and Gruden will be the guys the Caps rely on and not Yonkman.
2. Fortin injured back again and not playing. See above.
3. Has anyone seen Jagr? I see that he has a 2nd assist on a ppg and a couple of shots on goal in the Detroit game.
4. Semin missed two games that he needed, but from what I heard played well in his first game.
