Not AlexBro's thread. Therefore a loss. Will go to sleep.
Let's Go Caps!
Gotta think, whoever plays better tonight between boyd and dowd has the 4c job pretty much nailed down.
Gersich's playing a lot. Looks like he's getting roster spot.
DSP right now has played his way off(He's healthy and hasn't played a preseason game yet with only 2 more to go after this today) that secured spot for 3RW, so that is opening the door for other players.
It would have to be for our very own fat boy right?
edit: SherVaughn and I posted at the exact same time.
Gersich is getting plenty of opportunity but heading into this one I'd guess he hasn't done enough yet to force the issue and make the roster. Being waiver-exempt likely works against him. If we assume Dowd & Boyd will make it then maybe there's one more spot left and I'd guess it's more likely to initially go to Barber, LOB or Walker (who are also getting long looks). Someone needs to stand out from this group, esp. given that DSP has opened the door for a spot to be there for the taking initially.
Just don’t sleepwalk through the game and I’ll be happy.
I would take Boyd over dowd in a heartbeat
Little better flow to our game to start
Alright, they're ****ing around.
lol that was fast passing.
Ovi, Kuzy, and Carlson playing hot potato half way into the powerplay.
Kuzy lost that game of hot potato
Laughlin: "Blues are going with a lot of youth this season". Not even close, they will actually be one one of the older teams in the NHL next season.
They just signed three players 30 or older in Maroon, Bozak and Perron, and their only real young players who will make it are Fabri, who is hurt again, Thomas and I guess maybe Kyrou.
I would bet their avg. age is older than the Capitals this season.
I'm also digging the Blues GDT:
I only note this because I was just thinking "Doesn't something bad happen whenever the Caps play the Blues in the pre-season"?
Nice goal from Gersich
63 has a couple nice shifts.... and he scores
Damn can Gersich fly.
I tend to listen to what Laughlin says and just assume the opposite
Caps look a lot better than previous games.
New renovations in STL look good. Crisp.
Does Bowey ever make a pass tape to tape or that isn’t intercepted? Geese.
Just noticed the thread title, I thought we decided all GDT's will be "Cup Champs v. whoever"?
wow we have a backup now
