Rierden just took the initiative and announced the starting forwards for the December game with Anaheim.


Wilson and Hathaway on the wings, and in a surprise move, Gudas at center.

The Ducks twitter showed the spit.. Got him right in the chest it looked like. No place for that, but also sucker punches should be ejection worthy as well. As DC says, this is part of the end to fighting in the sport, with refs getting involved WAY too soon. It'll only take one time, when a ref is shown laying unconscious on the ice, after getting clocked for jumping in too soon and fighting will be gone from the sport..  :-\

Haha - we can only hope.




But how about Hobbs and Gudas on D and Willy, Hathy, and .....maybe Obrien at center?


Who's are our other tough guys.

I am really liking this Caps team.  It's always fun when you're winning, but this team really is fun to watch.  I love the toughness we're showing this year.  Lot's of hitting, lots of character, guys going to the net, etc.
I am sure we won't maintain this level of scoring all year and we will have a bad streak along the way where we all bitch about the lack of character on the team, and Rierdon is an idiot, Ovie is coasting, Willie is muzzled, Holtby is lost (without Korn) and blah, blah, blah,
but they certainly are playing well now and never seem to quit even when down a few goals.  Nice to see and fun to watch.


I thought the Boston game was excellent, and loved the toughness in the Ducks game as well.


Let's not overlook Panik finally got a goal, and he has looked better overall the last several games.  Hopefully he gets his game going.  Boyd sure is trying to keep a spot on the roster too.  I'd say Stephenson was headed for the Hershery (especially cause of salary cap) when Hags/Dowd are ready, but Stepho scored yesterday too so...who knows.

So a couple of more observations on the fight sequence.


Leipsic - he actually lays out two of their biggest players - he first knocks down Gudbranson who is their biggest, toughest guy, then he comes back again and levels another big guy. Then he defends himself pretty well. Leipsic will now be a fan favorite and rightfully so!


Hathaway - in addition to the knockdown punch (and the spit), he elbows the guys head onto the ice - just the little bit of nasty that we need!


Carlson, Stephenson, Kempny - unfortunately, they held back and clearly none of them wanted to grab Gudbranson - which I don't blame them for.  I know there are rules about jumping in, but Stephenson is first paired up with Gudbranson and the next thing you know, Gudbranson is skating around hitting Hathaway.


Overall, just a fantastic sequence!!!1

Rush


You nailed it Rush.  I have to say, when I was watching the "Leipsic" scrum....I watched Johnny Q rush in (okay...eventually mosey and gravitate toward the scrum) and grab a guy at arms length and stand there scowling (or trying to).  I laughed out loud....It looked like he was constipated.  I started teasing him on the TV...."You gonna cry....you gonna cry Johnny Q...or are you gonna just stand there and shit your pants".


We wife walked by and asked "what the hell are you doing and who are you talking to?" 


Well, it was funny to me.


but hey I'll give Dylan some props - he is playing exceptionally well this year, and I won't even complain about his d-play (ahem - no perve comments needed about Dylan's D), but he will never be a tough guy.


Leipsic looks better and better.  Keeps playing with that edge and we gonna have to call him Dino.  I really had never heard of him (or Hathaway for that matter) but both those guys are really making an impact.  They make the best of the little time they get on the ice.  Leipsic was definitely sniffing whatever Kuzy has in his locker, cause he was possessed with the hits last night.  He knocked that guy off his skates.  AWESOME.

If Carlson wasn’t getting goals and points he’d be worthless. Just my opinion.

You could say the same for Ovie or any other member of the team, except maybe the enforcers.

I think folks are being a little unfair to John Carlson. I am quite happy to have him on the team. His defense is pretty good and the points/goals are a huge bonus. So his daddy maybe did not teach him to stand up for himself.  Maybe he wants to keep that face intact. Maybe he sucks at fighting.

OK, maybe he's a wee bit of a pussy.  I still like his contributions.

YES, it was DAMN FUNNY TO WATCH!!
Hell, if I didn’t do the SAME THING, rewinding that Leipsic/Hathaway fight scene, during 2nd intermission, quite a few times, and soloing in on Carlson’s actions over the entire sequence!


Your “constipated” description is spot on, Rich!


I’ll add, that his actions we observe, during these “fight scenarios”, appear to me, to be an EXTREMELY CALCULATED attempt, by Carlson, to “ACT”, as though he’s just “right on the verge” of “wanting to fight”, and get tough, and get in there, and blah, blah, blah!


The problem for Carly is, (if you observe closely, over time), he’s ALWAYS, conveniently just out of reach, or CONVENIENTLY, not quite there in time, or CONVENIENTLY, positioned BEHIND a guy when the physicality, “meat and potatoes”, is happening, during ANOTHER teammates fight!


OR, he does a few meaningless, weaker, shoves or pushes, but he almost ALWAYS waits until the mood of the scrap has severely diminished, that is to say, it’s a much safer BET, that he won’t have to fight, but, at all costs, LOOK as if he were going to!!


A little frown, here, a little arms-length, jabber-jawing, there, a little fake-ass, smack talk, (albeit from a WELL CALCULATED safe distance, from the real fricasse), and you’ve got the ENTIRE table of contents, of John Carlson’s new book;
“THE 6’3”, 215, NHL DEFENSEMANS GUIDE TO FIGHT AVOIDANCE, AND OTHER PUSSY DEFENSIVE TIPS”
😂🤣


Now, I realize I’ve just hammered Carlson pretty heavy!


(BTW, AJ, I’m including a response to your recent Carlson post, here, as you and I have discussed him recently).


This is the reality of what I’ll call the “Carlson paradox”, as far as my opinion goes of him!


1) I, like Rich, do give Carlson major props for his stellar offensive contributions. I, now, truly feel he is CRUCIAL to the success of our team, and plays a large factor in why we are the current top team in the NHL, even to say, without him, we would NOT be #1 currently!


2) I absolutely can’t stand to watch him play, defensively! Especially, at his size. Just a complete PUSSY!! Year after year, too!


3) I have come to believe, finally, that the LOGICAL, high value, and contributions to the overall team play, has to outweigh the strong negative FEELINGS I have for his style of play!


For this reason, I know longer DISLIKE the TOTAL John Carlson!


So AJ, the answer for me is, I have to treat, and talk about Carly, BOTH ways!
IMO, because he is BOTH things!
That BIG, pussy defenseman, I reject....AND....
That awesome, offensive-defenseman we can’t do without!


John Carlson, again IMO, is totally worthy of both the SHIT, and PRAISE, I can simultaneously heap upon him, in the SAME GAME!!👍
This is how I keep my sanity when it comes to Carlson!😂🤣




Forgive the ramble part, guys, please!
The wife and I got in from New York City at about 2:30 this morning, and I was too amped from the trip to fall asleep right away! So I started reading the forum, and this happened! LOL!

Looks like Hathaway is suspended indefinitely/until a hearing with the Department of Player Safety for spitting.


Apparently, being spit on could be linked to CTE 😜🤪

I will always give Johnny Q Dylan Carlson a hard time.  I will admit that not only his offensive game, but ALSO his defensive game have improved steadily the last several seasons.  I even see him check guys now and then.  I just want him to be more physical at his size (and POSITION).  But he just is not.  I have come to terms with it so I really don't dislike him anymore.  His is not a defensive liability out there, but he is not going to muscle anyone out of the crease or prevent anyone from running his goaltender....or team mate...or sister....or mother.....WHoops....took it too far again.  It really is not as much fun as it used to be when his guardian angel was here to defend him and heap praise on him every single game  8)
