    I would be shocked if we see him either of the rangers games. My take is that Lavi knows we are in the playoffs and he wants to make absolutely sure the team is healthy. I don’t think he cares at all about seeding.

    Bring him back to put up 6 goals in 2 games against the hapless Flyers to get to 30 ;)

    No need to make him lose his form either.

    So, you think that Laviolette would rather skate a team shorthanded one player rather than let a ready to play Ov in?

    Taxi squad are like AHL players. They count against the salary cap only when activated. The Caps dont have any cap space to add a player

    I fear that if we take our foot off the pedal and rest guys leading up to the playoffs, we wont be able to turn it on once the playoffs do start.

    Last year, covid shut the season down then when we came back, we looked like crap but told ourselves we will turn it on once the playoffs start. Then our out-of-syncness just carried over into the isles series.

    I dont trust this team to have the ability to turn it on and off.

    Also going with 11 forwards and 6 D is not the end of the world.

    These two games against the Rongos will show whether the Caps can contain a fast team. I have my doubts.

    I thought there was going to be a long layoff due to teams having to make up missed games already.

    Would love to see Pilon get a game, but have no idea how it would work with current cap constraints

    What's the big deal? I've played a handful of beer league games with 7 skaters, 4F 3D. It can be done.

    Wait, is Oshie not playing because of the drama over his wife’s instagram pix of their kids? I get that people are mean, but ... does 77 really need to skip a game?

    Then again, maybe the kid herself is upset and stressed, in which case, okay I certainly get that.

    There was some drama in the comments apparently about the older girl wearing boys clothes, I don’t know. I don’t have Instagram.

    i guess the other obvious possibility is, something with his dad’s health.

    Either way, i wish him the best. Family more important than hockey.
