Ovi at RW in practice. Good since he cant even hit a wide open one timer on his off wing.

Heh it seems a reporter asked Dale about why no Orlov. Thank you.

Keep up the pressure. Ask why does Aucoin get extended PP1 time, over a Semin or Backstrom, Laich or Brouwer.

Maybe before the season is over, ask the million dollar question, Whose idea was it to trap, and did he expect these struggles since he didn't trap in London?

okthxbye

Btw, I was listening to Sirius on Friday and they were airing a toronto based sports radio show.

They were saying Hunter won't be here next season because he hates coaching in the NHL.

They just casually put that out there and didn't even expand on it.

Where is this rumor coming from?

Wow RH.

A change of tune about Dale when we're in the 2nd round of the playoffs?

Whyno with a great intro to his blog post...

John Tortorella won't win any public speaking awards, and he probably won't even win the Jack Adams Award this June. But it's still worth noting that he's a finalist for the NHL's coach of the year honors.
He may have outdone Katie with that one.

I've been very disappointed in not being able to find the 'my ankles are broken' Dubinsky-Schultz youtube clip.

Whyno works for the Times...but point taken.

His incessant Flyers love on twitter reeks of unprofessionalism.

I know there are folks on here who think he's better than her, but he's not. They both suck and are completely unreadable.

EDIT: and I'll throw Tarik in this list too. His cameo appearances are typically smug and arrogant without actually containing any real reporting. /rant.

EDIT 2: And as soon as I say this, Katie posts this on Orlov , no answers of course, but at least the issues were raised. It's hilarious that we can come on here and drive the reporting in the DC paper of record. How can they need HF to figure out what to ask?

Because collectively we know more about the Caps than anyone outside the organization. If I was a Caps beat reporter, I'd be all over HF, too.

Freaking preposterous. "It's worth asking whether it might be worth giving the young Russian a chance."

Then ask!

Wideman now -5

You just have to laugh. I have said since 6 was retained at the TDL that George needs to make it one playoff with enough puck movers to not use that as an excuse for the next year. If we exit too soon, maybe someone should ask him if too many mobile puck movers was a problem. Ahem for a team trapping so heavily. Katie there is a story here.

Puck movers have to have hand in goals. Be it on the PP, that's fine, and then we can live with them to be a minus something. He has eek'd out one assist.

Its actually becoming entertaining watching him and Sarge throwing pucks around blindly. Its like a game within a game, will they survive this shift. Every single one is a struggle. watch for it. And I do think Erskine and Wideman is an improvement over 655.

Orlov can't be more inconsistent and sloppy, can he?

I have more of an issue with Halpern not playing over Aucion than I do with Orlov not playing over Erskine or Schultz.

Agreed the difference between halpern and aucoin is way larger than orlov schultz ersk. I'm not big on the fancy stats crap but can anyone tell how bad widemans stats are this playoff?

thats not really true. there are things that only someone with the team on a daily basis can know and none of us are in that catagory.

collectively we know more than one beat writer might, but we also hold falsities and misconceptions that destroy any cred we would have.
