    NHL 2018-19

    Philly released a third jersey. My reaction to it is basically the reaction I have when any Stadium Series jersey is repackaged as an alternate. "i don't remember these things being so garish"

    'Yotes alternate looks pretty cool to me. Good to see kachina back. 100%. Not enough contrast otherwise. Not a huge fan of the double flag logo, even if it is technically correct.

    The 2018 NHL Silly Season: Dilly Dilly

    The Caps have traded Phillip Grubauer and Brooks Orpik to the Avs for the 47th overall pick. Initially I was shocked by how low the return was since I was expecting the inevitable Grubauer deal to fetch a first rounder and/or a decent to good NHLer. But it’s a cap clearing move. Moving those two contracts gives the Caps an extra $7m in cap space, which will be invaluable in re-signing John Carlson and Tom Wilson. Plus, when you consider that Grubauer was being moved anyways, this looks good for the Caps. They get to sell high on Orpik as well after his excellent postseason. Overall, I wish Grubi and Orpik the best. They both played a huge part in the Cup run this season, particularly Grubi filling in for Holtby in the regular season when Holtby got off track there. But Holtby’s our starter and we’ve got three solid-to-good prospects in the pipeline (Copley, Samsonov, Vanecek). Orpik’s goal past MAF in the Final is the stuff of Caps legend already, as well as his monster postseason. Also, good move by Colorado imo. They get the starting goalie they need to make a legit push next year.

    2018 NBA "Off"Season-Because It's Always On

    So according to ESPN the Lakers have turned down Gelo Ball and they said that their decision had “more to do with than just basketball.” Looks like LaVar isn’t calling all the shots after all.

    With Trotz in New York, assuming that Tavares re-signs, he’ll have them competing within two years. Mark my words.

    The Wizards really needed a big man in this draft. If they didn’t pick one up, selecting a backup guard to provide some much needed bench scoring would’ve been good too. So of course a team in desperate win-now mode selects a long term project at the position where they have the most depth (SF). Would've definitely preferred DiVincenzo or Huerter or Robert Williams at 15. Think Troy Brown Jr. was a reach.

    That’s not even the worst of it as well. You know who the Penguins’ home opener is against? The Capitals. On the very next night. So not only do the Caps not get to raise a banner against their most hated rivals, after they did it to us last year, but they have to start the season with a back-to-back, the second half of which is a home game for said rivals. You’d think Gary Bettman would be able to hide his ire for the Capitals better than that. Well, maybe not.

    My friend once told me that the Bills should rebrand as the Buffalo Chips.

    The NHL has punished the Caps for beating their precious Golden Knights in the final, as they somehow don’t schedule the Caps vs. the Pens for their home opener to allow them to get revenge for last year. Poor Bettman couldn’t handle Vegas losing to a “bunch of chokers”.

    In what may be the least surprising move of the NHL offseason, Ottawa has traded Mike Hoffman to San Jose.

    Apparently there was a clause in his contract where if he won the Cup, his contract got a two year extension automatically. All they had to do was negotiate the details and apparently they couldn’t do that. I’m sad to see him go. He has to go down now as the best coach in Caps history, what with 2 President’s Trophies (in a row), 3 division titles (in a row), and a Cup. However, the Caps have been grooming his assistant, Todd Reirden, now for a while to take over for him. Thank you Barry for all you did for this fanbase. It will not soon be forgotten. Short of being hired by the Penguins, Rangers, or Flyers, I think Trotz will always have a great reception in D.C. for what he did for this team. I wish him well in all his future endeavors. Bold prediction: Trotz “retires” only to un-retire in 2020 when Seattle starts playing to coach them. Without a guarantee from Tavares that he’s staying, why would a coach of his quality go to the Islanders?

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    Brazil continues the “powerhouses not playing well in match #1” trend, draws with Switzerland. Brazil, Argentina, and Spain have all drawn in their first match. Germany lost.
