beyond the hype and talk of the announcers and such...
I thought Willy looked outstanding, probably the best player on the ice.  He has to be a scorer for us this year.  He has the speed and hands, and size and so on.  Much more skill than I think people credit him
Backy honestly looked better than he has in years.  Hard to tell in preseason, but he didn't look slow
McMichael actually looked like he belonged there - hopefully he makes the jump for real and contributes
Kuzy certainly looked better...anytime he is circling like sharks on the prowl, he is usually on his game....carrying the puck and driving the play.
Miko (cherry) looked pretty good.  Got to be awesome for him actually playing on a line with a Russian idol like Ovi.
Lindy looked very good
I think Carbery's system will be more fun for the guys (if their old bones can keep it up) and I think that will help drive guys like Kuzy and McMike who may not have flourished well under old school.  Plus its sort of a fresh start for everyone so there's hope.

Hope in one hand...

Go Caps

I’m not at all surprised by this. The kid is 18 and was part of this summer’s draft pool. There is a minimum age to play in the AHL/Hershey, and I think it’s 21.

Note: My prediction of poor defense had nothing to do with last night or the preseason. We've just not been good defensively, for a good long while now.  :raspberry:

dont think anyone really had expectations of Cristall making the Caps squad this year.  I expect his buddy Beddard will make it, but it's a bit different for a 1st overall...little more hype and expectation when you are THE very best player in a draft class and the best one in a while.

Cristall did look pretty good though.  THere's some hope for the future anyway.  Him and the Russian cherry could be two great scorers

Nick Jensen just missed his third day in a row of training camp. No word on why yet.

It’s only preseason, no need to freak out about a loss. But I’d be happier if there wasn’t a shutout.

The Wings last goal was just plain embarrassing.
Milly looked good again.
Way too many stupid penalties, hope we get some discipline before the season starts.

Glad I forgot about that one. What a shit day for sport. Gators shit themself, UCF blew a 25 point lead in the 4th quarter, Caps sucked, Truck race was, well, the truck race. lol But no time to dwell on it, got the Skins/Eagles massacre coming up at 1pm today, then the always fun Talladega plate race that will no doubt fuck everyone I root for!  :) And of course the game of politics, where the Republicans cave as usual and don't get jack shit cut from the bloated budget.. What a time to be alive!  :wackysmile:

oof.  preseason, but still.


Phillips has looked good.  Tough road for his size, but he looks hungry to score.  He's been in the play a lot.
Strome has looked good.  Milano is in there.  Mantha sadly looked like Mantha last night.  I watched but was working on computer so I wasn't 100% in it, but Caps look slower when the other team throws some of its A-game out there :-)

on a side note...during video interviews with the coach, Monumental has added subtitles so at least you can read the frigging questions asked.  Happy to see it after about 20 years of stupidity

I could’ve skipped the entire race except for the last two laps.
