So, Grabovski to the Caps? That sounds like an excellent fit, makes their forward corps much more playoff worthy.

Much better 5-on-5. Probably worse 5-on-4. $2 million cheaper. It's a great signing.

I had a feeling they'd get at least one notable FA this summer after letting Ribiero and Semind go the last two summers. Not a fan of George McPhly but would be unlike him to make no moves.

The USA jerseys are really, really terrible.

Bennett's pictures look relatively decent (especially in comparison to the rest of the team)

That is weird because anytime I see Kessel on TV off-ice he looks pretty normal. In this shot even his neck and shoulders look fat.... he looks like he's on the Dustin Penner Fatten Up For Winter program.



And yah those photos are turrible. Actually I blame the photographer because he/she has them in these slumpy high school yearbook poses that no professional athlete should ever use. The Jimmy Howard one looks like "Hey let's do something different here". The caption should say "I like man-nipples!"

Also the crest on those uniforms look like someone was trying really hard to evoke "Captain America" imagery... which is really dumb.

Nope... it wouldn't. It couldn't be any worse, but it's not better.

There is only one solushun to this ugly mess.

THAT's where I've seen it... I knew I saw that freaking cheesy crest on some cartoon, government agency or company logo.

Apologies to Captain America (hey let's be honest, there is precedent here for using stupid cartoon graphics on hockey jerseys).
