    I was hoping for a scrub squad from the Caps because of this:

    Would rather see a spirited inter squad scrimmage. Blues may try to go all flyers again

    The Blues were at the Naval Academy this morning and watched the last ten minutes of my sons Pee Wee game so that was cool.

    No injuries please.

    A rare game that works for my time zone, a W would be a nice bonus too .

    Kuzy/Stephenson as a 3rd wave PKer is intriguing. Still unsure of our 1st wave, but Eller/Wilson is a legitimate contender to be the best zone-denial PK combo in the league.

    Holtby being really aggressive with the puck handling tonight. Curious if Reirden wants to bring that out of him more than we've seen for the past few seasons.

    I keep going back to how different the roster is at the begging and end of each year. I’m hoping by the playoffs we have a better option then dowd

    I don't know everything about hockey (although I think I do) but can someone explain to me how Dowd gets a spot over say Megna or even Phino?

    Is it waiver stuff, is it as simple as right/left-handed centers? Salaries are basically the same so honestly I would have given Phino the job based on the games I saw (all of them), and the two practices I went to.

    Oshie draws the interference. He got under someone's skin

    Pinho's upside is being a player similar to Dowd without the agitation. So that's understandable to me. Megna is the same age as Dowd, and while he's outplayed Dowd this pre-season, perhaps they're looking at prior track record.

    Ovie looking really lazy on the PP today. Forcing shots into shinpads, barely moving to adjust angles.

    Ok, so what is the penalty there?

    Just outlaw hitting and be done with it.

    Well, Wilson is likely getting suspended there, so... more short term opportunities for some young forwards...
