Just out of curiousity, did anyone notice which group(s) Jimmy Oligny and Tyler Ludwig were playing with before they got cut today?

Heard Johansson was slotted with Ovechkin and Knuble and Boudreau stated he looked quite good with Ovechkin and made alot of nice plays...is there likelihood that Johansson can bump Backstrom to #2 line with Semin and/or bump Laich off top PP unit or is this just nothing more than aimless fuddling with the Caps lineup.

Oligny has been out with an injury (happened early in rookie camp); Ludwig played today in the scrimmage, I think in white, which was Group C I believe.

I don't think it's Johansson "bumping" Backstrom so much as it's trying to create two scoring lines and trouble for opposing coaches with match-ups.

i am fairly sure this is just preseason experimentation. more a question of who is better with semin, johansson or backstrom.

as for the power play, johansson and laich have very different skill sets for a power play and i would think one would have very little to do with the other.

Unless they're considering changing up the PP strategy...

From Fantrax.com

"Marcus Johansson opens camp with Ovechkin

Marcus Johansson has been skating between Alex Ovechkin and Mike Knuble at the start of Washington's training camp. "Marcus played so well at the end of the year and I thought he had good chemistry with Alex at the end of the year, so we just wanted to see how much he grew over the summer," coach Bruce Boudreau said. "Not physically or anything, but mentally having that year under his belt. I thought they made a couple pretty good plays out there today, this [Monday] morning. It will be interesting to see how they play together." Johansson was viewed as a solid sleeper candidate going into his sophomore season, but playing alongside Ovechkin from the outset would certainly give him a significant jolt in 2011-12."

He is still a boy amongst men. No doubt he'll be great for the Caps down the road, but he's just not strong enough.

They could of gave Galiev a little more time, after all he came down early and all. He's probably disappointed.

his junior season is already underway. no real hurt in sending him back to play meaningful games.

I don't think people should be surprised with Galiev...they gave him a preseason game before sending him back and as has been noted, the Q season has started.

So with today's cuts and expected line-up in Columbus tonight, here's some info:

By my count, 44 players (not counting Poti who didn't clear medical) remaining in camp:

- All are under contract with Washington except 4 Hershey contract players (Rechlicz, Carrol, Brouillette, & Wellar)

- 6 remaining from rookie camp: Sjogren, Eakin, Orlov, Flemming, Anderson, Grubauer

- 2 expected to play in the first 2 preseason games are Beagle and Bourque.

- 6 Players not expected to play tonight who won't have dressed for a game plus 2 goalies (Vokoun and Sabourin): Erskine (no contact), Brouwer (recovering from injury), Richmond, Ford, Aucoin, Potulny

OT: Joe Finley is on the Sabres training camp roster... (no news of a contract, even with the AHL affiliate Rochester, but possible he has a minor league contract)

How's Potulny looked at camp? Hopefully he gets time in games 3 and 4. He was one of the players I was most interested in from a depth/injury call-up perspective.

Mildly disappointed that Galiev and Paquette have already been cut. Not real surprising, though.

Re. Potulny - see some of the write-ups from the scrimmage; I assume he will play in Chicago on Friday unless there's a reason they are holding him out of games (i.e., Brouwer).

Yes; it's possible he has a minor league contract, but nothing has been announced.

More OT: Pinizzotto making an impression with Canucks so far.

I guess Bouchard will never make the NHL. Shame...I had hopes for him long ago.

Surprised it took this long for someone to mention Bouchard...most people reacted to Galiev, but yes, Bouchard's place on the depth chart isn't pretty. It will be interesting to see what line he ends up on in Hershey, but he didn't help his cause, IMO.


In somewhat related news..."... Spencer Carbery ... expects as many as nine players from Hershey this season.It should include 2 goalies, 3 defensemen and 3 or 4 forwards. Spencer is confident that he’ll get two goalies out of Hershey/Washington."

link to SC blog


The 2 goalies should be Machesney and Grubauer to start.

As to the other players, definitely a list to choose from depending on rest of camp including Hershey.
