I seem to remember Kevin Hatcher's first fight in his rookie season with the Caps. Poor guy who picked on him didn't seem to know that Hatcher was gold gloves in Detroit. It ended rather fast. I'd love to see that one again :P

Yep Hatchet-man is another of the  great ones (a fellow “Detroit Caps”) . . .
Couldn’t find a video of his first fight,  but here’s one of the earliest I found



I definitely wanna catch him at an alumni event or somethin of the sort.  I’d be damn cool to shake his hand and buy him a glass of Old No 7.

Nice scrap but Deswhatever just wasn’t good enough.   More shots or not the ones Willie threw had more effect and damage

I'm not getting it?


10 - Kelly Miller?  (I KNOW you didn't mean Shathispantz)
11 - Mike Gartner or Jeff Halpern
22 - Konowalchuck?  Or Dino....or Knuble?  (I had to look up Knuble, but knew the others)


Did Miller/Gartner/Dino actually play on a line together?


23 - Gould (ye old breaker of face) who I will always remember as 23 - or Kevin Kaminski (and I had to look that one up)
16 - Alan May - or Eric Fehr
42 - Ward is the only one I can remember


What you getting at?


If were talking pure toughness/character how about...


17-32-16  or 27 in the mix....(what is it with the angry Injuns, anyway?)


and add 3 and 4 on the blue line for good measure  :snicker:

I’m getting at comparing the  prominent third lines in modern Caps history



Ulf Dahlen (10)/ Mike Greire
Halpern (11)
Konowchuk (22)


Or
Chimera (25)
Fehr (16)
Ward (25)


Or
Bura (65)
Eller (20)
Connolly (10)


My point is to challenge that “65-20-10” as just three players that don’t have stats to play on the “top two lines” and provide little to nothing else.

The other two groups, where the backbone of The Caps during that time. They played against, and shutdown the other teams top scorers, and scored when needed,scored a goal when needed. 


That is what the trio of players, that trends call them “3rd lines”, are designed to be. and most effectively utilized as.


So regardless of the 12yos that love a name like Burakovsky, the soccer moms that like the Lars, or the hippsters that like a player with a low salary, or that they where there when Holtby and Ovie won a Cup, they individually, or more importantly, as a group, are no where near the other two groups,


These trios, that provided most of the wins in there time have been forgotten and dismissed by The Capitals, while Lars is praised?!! 


Oh yeah, his name was more  in focus groups of soccer moms then Jeff or Eric

It is not only disgraceful, but irresponsible and naive that these  six/seven players have been dismissed, forgotten, or disregarded because the other 3 where on a team that(somehow)  won a Cup inspite of them.
