Ha, I laughed when I saw that post, too... been signs pointing that way all week, not sure why txpd was so adamant. Don't know much about Johansson's illness in the preseason, but sure didn't help him. Trying to take advantage of one of Perreault's streaks if he's still on one given the days without a game.
If Wideman isn't healthy (assuming he is missing skates for health reasons and not other reasons,) he shouldn't be playing. It's an 82 game season and then more, we hope. With the LTIR space, if he isn't 100% to start, they should be using someone else.
I want a complete game out of the caps tonight. 5+ goals.....hold the canes to <24 shots and <1 goals. Go 2-4 on the pp with lots of great opportunities, win the faceoff battle and hits. And out possess and skate the canes.
Finally, the new season is here. Been a long off season and I can't wait for 7:00PM EST. Here's to a long season of hopefully awesome hockey. To me, this off season has seemed like an eternity, even more so than last.
I love how BB is determining who's in the line-up based on how the players played in preseason and in practice. No more giving guys automatic spots just because of who you are.
Just ****ing win.
I like the "must compete to play" direction he seems to be going as well.. Just wonder how far "up" the food chain it'll go?? Does Nicky also have to watch his back?? We'll see.. Could be a great motivator! (could backfire too.. Anythings possible with the Caps)
