    Hockey game will start @ 2PM ... or ... 10 hours later.:skeptic:

    Or maybe NHL can just rescheduled it again in March.

    Plenty of hockey to be played, obviously there’s some continuing trends from last year but we have our best hockey ahead of us.

    I thought backstrom-vrana and Ovie oshie showed some chemistry.

    f*** the devils

    Watching the Caps lately I've been thinking "Oh, this is what it looks like when your window is closing"..

    Exactly. I would say as of now the window is indeed closed. They need to inject some youth into the line-up and re-tool. Of course they could still make the playoffs and anything can happen then but I would say their days as a bonafide cup contender are done...for now.

    So much doom and gloom, you would think we were the Redwings. No prediction for the game, but here are some GDT predictions.
    -someone will call for Lavi to be fired
    -kuzy needs cocaine and traded post
    -Carlson is high
    -panik is the worst capital ever take
    -we have the worst goalies in the NHL post
    -and lastly, at some point in the first period someone wil declare the game over

    wouldn’t really be a surprise. This team tries when you don’t expect it and doesn’t when you do. /shrug

    I blame myself for last game's poor performance. Didn't really bring a solid effort with the GDT (hell I double-posted it somehow), overslept, had too many carbs for breakfast. Basically I've got a big ego and thought everything would be fine but I'm getting old and good preparation is more necessary now than when I was a young pup.

    ovikovy817 is more of a lunchpail poster and he's brought the effort so far. He might not be flashy but he doesn't take anything for granted, takes it one post at a time, battles hard in the forum trenches, gives 110%.

    I'm feeling good about today.

    Sounds just like a Washington sports team.

    I’m having a hard time interpreting Anderson starting any way other than that the Samsonov situation is really bad.

    That depends on what the definition of "is" is.

    I think you could view it two ways:

    • His physical conditioning is still not where it needs to be, because from what Samsonov said COVID-19 really hit him hard (trouble breathing and walking at points). Perhaps he didn’t feel great in Hershey, where his play was rather inconsistent. Or
    • He’s recovered from COVID-19 (or 98% there), but they don’t want to put him back in net until he’s addressed the things that caused his poor start pre-COVID, and poor performance in his Hershey return
    Either way, I agree that they must have some significant reservations if they’re giving Anderson his first start after playing a rookie for 13 straight. If we had a nice points cushion, maybe they’d prioritise getting Samsonov to an ideal comfort level before throwing him back in there, but with things so tight we could really do with the win.

    With Dell in the other net, I would not be surprised if this is a high-scoring affair both ways.

    Or Anderson showed better performance in practice, got into better shape and can shield both youngsters from getting rekt tonight.

    Because no goalie can win noon game for Caps, lets be reality.

    I remember Lavi telling the press that he was going to talk to the goalies on Friday about what the gameplan is and who is going to play the back to back games this weekend. Maybe Samsonov told the coach that he wasn't 100% ready himself.
