but...lets go with the one game. its better for your cause. maybe both of them will start laying eggs from here out to make you look better. maybe not, though. be prepared to eat crow. the holtby we have seen in his career looks a lot more like the goalie that has played the last several games than the one that started the season.

i think the last player on the capitals that needs to be motivated is john erskine. after working as hard and waiting as long as he has waited for a chance to play(reference 85's complaints about ice time and role) there is no chance erskine takes a two year contract for granted. he wants to play. the only way he plays is by just about playing over his head.
