They're being counted out this year and I think it works in their favor. If they pick up the system in time they'll contend.

On phone, don't feel like Googling, but I think he's Captain of Ak Bars Kazan in the KHL, a good team.

For that price, no real risk. I'm betting he ends up healthy scratched often. Would have rather gone for a player with a more clear role on the team and higher upside (Sykora, Moore, Langkow) on a short term deal, but whatever. Also would have preferred a camp tryout to a straight up signing, but I can live with $600k.

Somewhere, Tom Wilson is frowning.

if they struggle with the changes, they need more cohesion and more stability, not less.
if they are in danger of missing the playoffs, GMGM will not stand pat. If at the deadline this team is out of the top 8, I can see a big trade. Core pieces moving out vs others coming in.

If they are in the top 8, then I only see them adding a few small pieces....typical George moves.

Yeah... Some times Green makes me shake my head. Could he try to act normal?

Whats the word on teams being able to buyout the contracts of two players? Is that part of the CBA? If so, who would the Caps use that on, if at all?

Each team has 2, can only be used this off season, use it or lose it.

Likely candidate is Green if he doesn't bounce back.

No, I should clarify (it wasn't a question). They have the option of using them this offseason or next; summer '13 or summer '14.

Injured Brooks Laich likely to miss 1st week or two for WSH so Wojtek Wolski or Eric Fehr could fill in on 2nd line LW with Ribeiro-Brouwer.

That's interesting. I wonder where he got the idea Brouwer is on the 2nd line.

On who he has with Ovi and Backstrom:
Bob McKenzieVerified ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie
@Mrduckpins MJ90.

Mike Vogel ‏@VogsCaps
He is still injured, yes, so not on camp roster. @khudon: What NO Orlov for Training Camp? Is he still injured?

Orlov still injured.

Mike Vogel ‏@VogsCaps
#Caps camp roster has just 25 players right now, 26 with Fehr. Few cuts needed.

That's the exact spin job I figured was coming. I thought your premise was that there was no way they were signing him because of work ethic problems. They gave him a full blown contract. Hence, you were wrong.

He could very well blow out a shoulder tomorrow but that wouldn't make you any less wrong.

Poti to Hershey on a conditioning assignment. The Bears have three games before next Saturday (this evening, Wed., & Fri.). He still takes up a roster spot while he's on that assignment IINM, though I haven't paged through the MOU yet for changes.

Current numbers in camp:

15F: Backstrom, Beagle, Brouwer, Chimera, Crabb, Fehr, Hendricks, Johansson, Laich, Ovechkin, Perreault, Ribeiro, Ward, Wilson, Wolski

9D: Alzner, Carlson, Erskine, Green, Hamrlik, Hillen, Poti, Schilling, Schultz

2G: Holtby, Neuvirth

Wilson back to Plymouth, Schilling back to Hershey & Laich on IR gets them down to 23, at least temporarily.

go back and read what i wrote. i never said there was no way. i said i didnt want him. i said, "i pass".

if you are going to make accusations, quote me correctly.

ok...your turn. are you suggesting that fehr is going to be a success? if yes, what production makes him a success?

there is no IR til the season starts and roster limits commence. my guess is that poti starts on ir as well. i thought i heard mcphee say he was going to send poti to hershey for a rehab assignment.

Why? What was the point of bringing him here for such a short stay? Or were you referring to the post-camp roster?
