Mike Green Was Always Under the Radar & Underappreciated
It’s official: one of the Washington Capitals’ “Young Guns” has officially retired. For those unfamiliar, the “Young Guns” was the nickname for Alex Ovechkin, Nick Backstrom, Alex Semin and Mike Green when they were budding superstars for the new era of Capitals hockey during the early 2000s. This was when the Capitals began their “Rock […]

Alex Ovechkin Has Become an Elite Leader
The Washington Capitals were on the verge of being swept on Tuesday, August 18th, when they played the New York Islanders in Game 4 of their first-round matchup. After an abysmal start to the game that saw the Islanders jump out to an early 2-0 lead, it appeared the sweep would be inevitable. After a […]
Capitals Could Get More From Kuznetsov as a Winger
For as long as he has been a member of the Washington Capitals, Evgeny Kuznetsov has been a centre. He started out in the bottom six and played his way up to the first line of the team when they won their first Stanley Cup in franchise history back in 2018. In that Cup run, […]

Capitals’ Playoff Success Could Ride on Vrana’s Shoulders
The Washington Capitals have recently completed their round-robin tournament and are now gearing up for what is hopefully a nice, long playoff run. In order for it to be long, they will need contributions from everybody. That includes their top guys, like Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov, and also their bottom-six players, like Garnet Hathaway […]

Capitals’ Vanecek Emerges as Likely Backup for Next Season
At the start of this season, Washington Capitals fans knew they were in for a transitional period. Not a transition from the Caps being a good team to a rebuilding team, or anything that serious. Instead, we knew they were in for a transition between the pipes. Of course, Braden Holtby was going to be […]

Capitals Have a Bit of Everything in T.J. Oshie
Surprisingly, one of the most popular players in the NHL is T.J. Oshie of the Washington Capitals. I say surprisingly because it’s uncommon for such a popular player to have a career-high total of 60 points in a season. However, Oshie has found his way into the spotlight in a league where stardom is reserved […]
Capitals Must Fix Power Play for Playoffs
The Washington Capitals return to playing meaningful hockey on Aug. 3 against the Tampa Bay Lightning after an over 140-day hiatus from action. They are jumping right into playoff hockey, which means every area that they were lacking in at the time of the stoppage will need to be improved upon — and quickly — […]
These Playoffs Are Braden Holtby’s Time to Shine
There’s no point in trying to argue it: Braden Holtby did not have a very good 2019-20 season. I don’t think he would argue it because we have seen how great he can really be. He won the Vezina Trophy in 2015-16 for being the league’s best goalie and, something I just learned, he finished […]
Capitals Need Holtby, Kuznetsov & Hathaway to Step Up in the Playoffs
As the 2020 Stanley Cup playoffs approach, the Washington Capitals are entering one of the most confusing and uncertain postseasons in their 46-year history. Every player on every team is the coldest they have ever been stepping on the ice for the playoffs, pun absolutely intended. Nobody has played a full-speed NHL game since March, […]

John Carlson Earns First Norris Trophy Nomination
The #Johnny4Norris campaign run by the Washington Capitals is one step closer to coming to fruition, as defenseman John Carlson has been nominated for his first Norris Trophy. The Norris Trophy is awarded annually to the league’s top defenseman, and the PHWA (Professional Hockey Writers Association) have decided that, via a voting poll, Carlson is […]
Capitals’ Road to Another Cup Doesn’t Look Easy
The Washington Capitals may have been skidding just prior to the stoppage in play, but since they had done well enough earlier on in the season, they earned themselves their fifth-straight Metropolitan Division title. Because of this, and the NHL’s unique, 24-team return-to-play format, the Capitals have a “bye” to the first round and need […]
Projecting Alex Ovechkin’s Contract Extension
Alexander Ovechkin has been a premier player in the National Hockey League for 15 years now. While he has maintained solid point totals throughout his entire career, he has also helped to grow the game not only in Washington, D.C., but all over the United States and the rest of the world. Because of this, […]
