Afternoon game + west coast + mini-funk + Murray coached team = loss for the Caps.

they better come out like gang busters.

Honestly, how they respond after two stinkers effort wise, will be more telling to me than most of the rest of what has gone on so far this season.

Yeah, we know the team is talented, but when the carrot has been replaced by the whip, how does this roster respond? Obviously, a regular season game against a Western Conference team on a Saturday afternoon in January doesn't matter a whole lot, but I think this game is a particularly important one for the psyche of the club.

Al I can say is, if we lose this game in the same manner as the previous two, Bruce is gonna stick someone's head on a stake as a warning to the rest of the club.

Obviously, the Cap's skid started with the trade. How do you guys feel about it?

The last two games and the trade is just a coincidence, although Jurcina wasn't truly expendable. Two games isn't really a skid or a slump. Another game or two and I'll start to be a little concerned. Los Angeles played the Caps tough last season and I don't expect them to be any more of a pushover. They're a good young team that plays the sort of responsible two-way game that can stifle the Caps skill. It's the sort of game where they're going need to pay the price and not be as much of a perimeter team.

Tarik was told Neuvirth will once again start.

From the limited looks I had at Chimera, I liked what I saw. We had to dump off a defensemen, and though I liked Jurcina, I think it was a good trade. Hurt a little bit to see Clark ousted like that, but remember all the time he's missed due to injury.

I'm more interrested in seeing how the C's and A's are going to be distributed, and in what direction the leadership moves in. My money is on Laich, Knuble or Ovechkin getting the C.

Interresting to see what we do with the extra money too, either snagging a rental at the deadline, or persuading some of our younger guys to stick around with more lucrative contracts. I'd rather keep the kids personally, but that's probably because I'm so emotionally invested in Backstrom and such. Don't want another Jim Carrey blockbuster deal to shock me again, though we certainly got ther better end of that one .

Did Joe B just say "when the Caps beat the kings?"

What does he know that we don't?

Is Varly in Hershey because his injury became worse? Or was this expected? I thought he was supposed to be back by now.

Is it just me or do the kings fall rather easily? No infractions yet, thank Ovechkin.

Someone tell Alex Semin this isn't the 3rd period and we don't yet have a lead. No need to be taking his signature dumb penalties this early.

Its Flash BMo Brads

Needless to say he will be the only one bringing the proverbial physicality.

I wonder if Brads isnt a candidate to be captain.
