Makes sense to geographically, but sucks that I won't get to see any of the capitals prospects play here any more. I got to watch Neuvy and Holtby, and a number of prospects that never amounted to anything. :/
I just hope SC doesn't affiliate with a team I dislike :/
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.
Sad because I really really like Charleston despite the hurricane threats. Make too much sense logistically.
This. Sad because I like Charleston, the staff, the arena, and the fans, but logistically this will benefit everyone (clarification: from a logistics perspective.) I know there were issues when Hershey had to keep players when SC needed bodies, because of the logistics getting players between point a and point b.
As for the players, a bit nicer to live in Charleston, golf courses, beaches, nice weather and the food.

Hmm..............I'm pretty happy about that. Hershey and Reading are within 45 minutes and the Caps a couple of hours. Enjoy watching a parent team and their affiliates live as opposed to just reading about them.
