another russian goalie would stop us again
WOW, line changes finally
Laich as 2C
Laich traded for 1st rounder or bluechip LhD >>> Laich as 3rd line C >>>>>> Laich as 2nd line C >> Laich as 2nd line RW\LW >>>>>>>>>>>> Laich on the same line with Ov
"Laich as 2C" -> Not really that bad basically. Could be much worse...
I'm just happy Erat is on the 2nd
But whatever this team does, please don't take MOJO off the first line. It's his play that has been the wingnut on this team's success so far this season.
Time to rock the pink as in slips for George McPhee.
Schmidt on the first pairing with Green?
Yeah Oatsie clearly was drinking before making up the lines and pairs yesterday. Its the only explanation for Erat on 2.
I am fine with Schmiddy with Green if true. Its high time Green being recognized as a vet and being asked to mentor our greenest greenhorns. Cover for their mistakes. You know, play like he is paid to do. more than score goals. Be a complete defensemen. Lets see what Schmidt is made of.
Anyone else think its maybe not a coincidence, that the announcement of Wilson staying coincides with Erat being moved off his line? Its like Oates and George had a little meeting and talked over things.
Green has looked lazy and disinterested in recent games. Will see how he looks with Schmidt tonight but I don't expect good things. Schmidt played well last game but I don't see the reasoning for him to be paired with Green who has been getting abused defensively with our best defensive defenseman.
Katie Carrera @kcarrera
Looks like Eric Fehr will be the odd man out among the forwards today vs #CBJ. Lines the same as they were yesterday. #Caps
Oates is setting up Erat for failure with those lines. As if he is going to be able to carry those two boat anchors better than Grabo. 3rd line might end up being our defacto 2nd line and should have the puck a lot.
That video was depressing. So much hope, optimism, and excitement when Ovie started.
Fehr is still in, Beagle is out.
Yeah... And he went on to win 3 hart trophies.
Last time I believe Carrera.
I love Ovie and want to see him raise the Cup. He deserves it. It's depressing to think he won't get that chance through no fault of his own.

#CapitalsTalk Oates confirms Volpatti-Fehr-Wilson as 4th line. Urbom-Oleksy as 3rd pair. Erskine, Beagle out. Holtby between the pipes.

John Erskine is “not quite ready yet” Oates said. He will sit out a fourth consecutive game. #Caps
Fehr still at center...
Is Oates blind? The Fehr at center expirement has been a huge failure, wake up you idiot.
I don't know how you can call those players boat anchors when Erat playing on the fourth did absolutley nothing playing against plumbers as OV calls them. Erat should have gotten a couple of points at least playing against lesser talent. Maybe Erat is also a boat anchor.
Erat was playing with 2 rookies or 1 rookie and a guy in Jay Beagle whose best offensive season was 5 points in 48 games (2011-12).
Ovie didn't exactly light it up when he was playing on the 4th line with grinders either so I'm going to cut Erat a break here.
Erat set up a half-dozen point blank scoring chances the past couple games. That his linemates couldn't finish isn't on him.
Mike Richards is C2 today!
Demoted for not having success at a position he doesn't play. Smdh
Meanwhile Laich is 2C.
