Discussion in 'Washington Capitals' started by The Deadly Pook Gas, Feb 7, 2019.
Colorado last 4 games
no Jaskin. stupid decision
Sad that Gru ain't starting
20GA in 4 games... who do they think they are, the Caps?
Caps: Hold my beer!
No Jaskin, no Dowd, no likee.
3rd line Burky...the last 'showcase'?
Trade deadline is 25-Feb. 10 games left to showcase Burky.
This "showcase" is never ending...
What is there to show anyways? He plays the same no matter where they stick him.
Don't touch the glass...the showcase is fragile
Who was the last biggest first round bust we drafted besides Bura? I'm sure there might be one but I just can't think of it right now and I'm at work.
Bura should take some showcase lessons from this.
26 points a year plus a cup and hopefully something back in trade for the 23rd pick isn't really a bust.
Don't get either. He seems like a player that can conribute in the playoffs if given time to work on some chemistry with bottom-6. Instead, they give a sweater to DSP and CS18.
I don't think you can consider him a bust. There's plenty of busts taken that year in the 1st round but he's not one of them. He's pretty bad these days though.
Idk. The Caps seem to think he is.
The Burakovsky showcase
Definitely Anton Gustafsson in 2008.
And I agree that it may be premature to deem Bura a bust, but so far he's not doing what you'd expect from a first rounder. A bunch of them never produce even at Bura's level, so he hasn't been a complete bust.
Brad Church, Miika Elomo, and Alexander Volchkov
Forgot Pokulok and Finley
32 players from that draft have 50+ points, 30 players from the previous draft have 70+ points, it's about what you'd expect at this point from a mid 1st and he was a late 1st.
Anton gustafsson or however you spell it. Seemed like they drafted him and then forgot he was Caps property
I'm thinking Boyd and even Stephenson may be trade bait so they're being showcased.
there was no one good after him from that draft until the 3rd round
I like Cali's speculation. Maybe package up Burky with Steviewonder? Give me more minutes from Jaskin & Dowd please.
