I could say something about Caps management here, and it wouldn't be nice

soooo... it looks like just about every team has a prospect camp, then a rookie camp, then regular camp. A lot of teams have already announced when prospect camp starts, and that's Sept 13-14. This being a holiday weekend, I didn't expect any announcements from the Caps. Maybe tues they will finally let the fans in on when camp starts.

So looking at the current team Roster...


Our O looks exactly the same as last year....yet another year older


Goaltending is exactly the same as last year....but a year older (which is a good thing for these two)


Our D is substantially weaker than last year.  We are plus a Kempney coming off a major injury, and minus a Charra and Dillon.


So we lost ALOT (okay....ALL) of our toughness on the blue line, and not much else has changed.  Orlov is now our team D tough guy?  We moved up van Riemsdyk from Hershey to fill a spot.


Also we added Mike Vecchione as a 13th forward...who is 28 and has played a total of 2 NHL games, so I don't know him at all, but based on his age is there to fill a roster spot.


Well if you were happy with last year's performance ,then get ready for another great year.   :clap:


Maybe our two young goalies with both blossom into surprising superstars
Maybe Kuzy will rekindle his heart and drive and lead this team
Maybe Ovi will be inspired by his new contract and lead and carry this team to victory
Maybe they will actually Free Willy and he will have a huge uptick in performance and impact
Maybe big Tony Ray-Ray will live up to his potential have have a career inspiring transformation
Maybe Sprong will Spring and blossom into legit consistent scoring threat
Maybe the D won't be as suspect as I think it appears to be
Maybe they let McMichael, Fever and Alexeyev get some actual NHL playing time and one or all three blossom.


Being a Cap fan for the entirety of their existence, I guess I should be used to mediocracy.


Inspiring post, I know.


GO CAPS  :)

yep, not an encouraging outlook for postseason play, or the opening night goon fest that the Rags appeare to want.


We can only hope management is still trying to move a contract like Kuzy or Carlson. Moving any less money wise is a waste of time IMO.

Yes, it's a family recipe to hopefully make the playoffs and fizzle in round 1 again!  :)


 If they were gonna move Kuzy (no chance on Carlson) they'd of done it already.. Maybe once the season starts and a team has a LTIR injury or something, but that's about the only chance, imo. I doubt they even want to move him. Him and Nicky (and Carlson) are Ovi's only shot at the record and that's probably as important or maybe even more so, to management, then getting another cup.

Anybody heard who/how games will be broadcast/televised this season?


I read somewhere TNT will broadcast the season opener, but won't they block that locally?


Do we have a "local" or regional broadcast network yet?

just a guess at this point, but I don't see the local coverage changing. There's been no reports of Lacher, Joe, Brent, Guido, ect, looking for new jobs

So....NBCSN is going to cover the games....I thought Turner and ESPN bought the NHL rights, but we are stuck with NBCSN?
I love Joe B, but.....


I can't get NBCSN     :'(


So I googled and read NBCSN is shutting down and USA network will pick up NHL coverage.  Still don't know what that means for "local" coverage?   :huh:


I am HOPING it's some sort of USA Network that my friggin Dish programming will actually have an option for.

ESPN and TNT are splitting the load for national broadcasts....

https://novacapsfans.com/2021/09/16/tnt-releases-broadcast-schedule-for-2021-22-season-capitals-rangers-season-opener-will-be-inaugural-game-broadcast/

I still don't see local broadcasts changing, it would have to change for 30 teams. 30 teams times 82 games each is 2460 games in the season. Maybe it reverts to Comcast sports, or maybe Monumental picks it up. Still no word on that other than our regular broadcast guys apparently still have jobs.
