Awesome!! He should be in the NHL right now!

Edit: Well, he is technically...but you know what I mean. Fulltime!

*cough* I called the shutout just hours before the game. I said 2-0 Caps but none the less...


Anyways CONGRATS MAX! I've been watching him for quite some time and to then have him traded to my favorite team and develop like this, simply amazing. I know he must be living a dream himself. My best guess is that he'll start back to back game against Flordia tomorrow.

How many difficult saves did he have to make tonight? Also, what happened to Jagr?

Now, this is just one game, so I know we shouldn't all get out of control . . . but it's not like he came out of nowhere. He was a much talked-about prospect who has proven he can handle the AHL. The next logical step is to give him some playing time in the NHL.

So, do you think he stays with the big club for the rest of the year along with Kolzig, or do you think he goes back to Portland in the near future? Best move imho would be to keep him with the Caps, and work him into around 20 starts (which is basically a 50-50 split in games from here on out). What do you think will happen?

This is STRICTLY SPECULATION on my part (sorry for the caps, but I wanted to emphasize the point), but, if the team is out of contention come deadline...possibly ...(nice, soothing italics)...Kolzig becomes much more tradeable (if that's even a word). Stana, the Caps' less-hyped tender prospect, has played well in the A, and Gherson isn't doing too poorly for the Attack. Daigneult is also in the mix.

If the Caps decide on a youth movement, it's not out of bounds to think they move Kolzig and have Stana and Ouellet fight it out for the job. Gherson is also playing as an overager, I believe, so if there is a trade of a goalie, they could sign him for Portland.

Goaltender is easily the Caps' deepest position, prospect-wise, and it would seem that the Caps would deal from there.

Jagr has supposedly lost his left thumbnail. No joke. It sounds funny, but i've heard that losing a nail can be VERY painful.

Ouch!!

I had one of my big toenails ripped off once, one of the most painful things ever.

Was at the game, Ouellet looked very good. He was extremely calm the whole game, great positioning.
