Combination of Items #1 and #2 - The CBA expiring is an excuse to not have to spend 21 29.17%

That was his point. Pens wouldn't have traded him to us.

Um, did you forget Orlov plays the right side?

I don't know why the Caps are not using their cap space but I know Tom Poti is still included.

I was bored so read the last player fun fact for TP.

Um, a Marathon?

Nope, we'll still be scraping AHL depth once Green goes down. And given recent second year performances from this group, I am not optimistic.

If you think he'll admit that he didn't know, or just made a mistake, don't hold yer breath.

One day, AO will either be dealt, or will leave the team.

When that day comes, I guarantee you that posters like Brooklyn, Devil D, CCF, Strung, Warden & Usiel will say:

"Ya know, I never liked him"

No ****ing clue what you're talking about. Who have I ever disparaged after leaving who I wasn't very vocal in disparaging while they were here?

For that matter, who have I ever claimed to have liked that I wasn't one of the most vocal supporters of while they were here?

Orlov seems to play left and right about equally well.

RD should be better for his offensive game and to defend against off wing right hand shots, LD should be better for digging the puck out against the boards. and D to D passing.

No he doesn't, he is MUCH more comfortable on the right side. Could that change over time if he spent more time on the left? Of course but that isn't going to be accomplished by flip flopping him from side to side.

Atleast they didn't say the Columbus Bluejackets have a better roster, oh wait, that was you.

Please stop quoting the Detroit fan trolling us all...


And the only way I ever turn my back on Ovechkin is if he turns his back on the Caps. Get a clue.

I know, that video is pretty hilarious. I've always wondered if that was just a generic insult, or based on some real interaction or knowledge of Tom Poti....
