So, we get to see Cody Eakin again. Also, didn't realize Gonchar is still around... Isn't he like 72 years old? Curious to see this Nichushkin dude.
Anyway, Holtby better get his **** together 2.5 is licking his chops...
Hoping for a nice debut for Urbom, Good Luck!
Get it done boys!

I'd go with Nuevy.

It's clearly Holtby's job to lose. Oates doesn't like a bad game to dictate his lineups.

I think Neuvy being a good guy not complaining about not being the starter helped him get starter money.

Interested to see how Eakin has come along. Is he a legitimate 2C now or is he just playing there out of necessity?

a quick look at capgeek shows that only emery or mason in philly makes 2.5 or less. that would indicate that 2.5 is good backup goalie money and not starting money. ramo is making more than neuvirth.

but if you think keeping neuvirth was a bad move...ok. personally, I think keeping will turn out to have been a very smart move.

In last season, he was a 2ndC-3rdC tweener on pace for just under 50 points in a normal season. We're not sure whether he projects to be a career 2nd line guy, but he's quickly becoming a fan favorite.

So you're trying to justify a backup's salary by looking at starters? How many backup goalies are making $2.5M?

I guess they moved the other posts, but Oates already said Holtby was starting after the Flames game. Unless he changed his mind since, Holtby is starting.

Didn't Neuvy complain when the Caps brought in Vokoun?

Ward got stuck in a bathroom stall at their hotel this morning and had to be rescued.

Katie Carrera ‏@kcarrera 44s
Steve Oleksy came off the ice with those expecting to play tonight. Looks like he’ll be paired with Carrick.

How Carrick keeps getting a jersey is beyond me, he looks completely lost in his own zone. Urbom has to be better. I would honestly rather have Schultz then Carrick and I can't stand Schultz.

I'm fine with both Holtby and Carrick starting. Holtby needs to get his game together, which means playing, not sitting and stewing. If he can play well tonight, that'll put him in a good place before the 4-day layoff. If not, plenty to work on over thos 4 days.

Carrick has got to be bound for Plymouth eventually. Let him get his reps in now.

Is Erat really that bad now that he's been buried on the 4th line? This guy can play top 6 minutes.

He's not. It's one of the great mysteries of life.

Maybe Oates is simply not a fan .......I guarantee he will be traded by Christmas if he does not get more time. He's a 45-50pt player.

GMGM and Oates said stupid things about how good Laich is. Too embarrassed to admit their mistakes so the victim is Erat being buried on 4th line.

Erat played a accidental shift with Grabo and Brouwer for 15 seconds and generated more offense than Laich has in 2 games, had to be really embarrassing so Erat was benched for creating too much offense.

Agree about Carrick being destined to be returned after his 9 games.

Someone mentioned in the Urbom thread early on that the obtaining him meant a surplus of defensemen and the Caps could move one of the d-men in Hershey perhaps. Totally disagree.

Over the past few years the Caps have averaged between 10 and 12 d-men over the course of a season getting a sweater at some point. With Hillen out we'll be at 7 after Olesky tonight and figuring Urbom gets a sweater soon we'll be at 8. Depending on how long Hillen's gone and once Carrick is returned a Hershey call up may be in the wings for another d-man. The way the opposition targets Green only adds to defensive depth needs. Kundratek, Orlov, Schilling, Schmidt make 12 right there, so don't be surprised if we see all of them at some point this season or perhaps someone else at Hershey.

If Oates isn't/wasn't a fan of Erat then you don't trade a blue chip prospect for him.
