Eakin is getting a long hard look in a scoring role. If he succeeds, it may help spell the end of Semin. But he needs to use his speed, and his line-mates need to keep pushing pucks up the wing so he can use his wheels. I cant see him succeeding just yet though. While its a skating league now, there are still a lot of big body's out there.
If Dale thinks he can score to help out team, I say get him out on the PP so he can develop some offensive chemistry and confidence. Most 2nd line players = PP2 guys.
Nice call on him being in our lineup this year Dirtbag
Can't be impressed by the Orlov shot if he refuses to shoot...
George McPhee....The Teflon GM. 15 years of failure and counting....
6 - Number of playoff series the Capitals have won since George McPhee took over as General Manager in 1997 (which makes him the third-longest-tenured GM in the League), three of which came in McPhee's first season on the job.
