Then I saw this AM that they sent Varly to Hershey to get back to playing shape. With Neuvirth playing well, they can afford for Varly to play a few at Hershey. So if you are in the Hershey area, get out to a Bears game (home games both Saturday and Sunday this weekend).

But between Varly, Neuvirth and Braden Holtby (7-1-0 at Hershey), the Caps have 3 terrific goaltenders all under the age of 22. Unfortunately, one of them will be trade bait...

I posted this in the comments section on Caps Insider:

Keep in mind that of this teams 15 losses (of both OTL and L variety) 10 of them came with Theodore in net. Neuvy and Varly have 5 losses combined, in which case Theo and the Neuvy/Varly combo have 21 games under their belt, each.

Now weather or not the team doesn't play as hard when Theodore is in net is a different story, but the fact of the matter is we are loosing when he's there all while the other two have been playing lights out.

I know Theo's been through a lot lately but the fact of the matter is that this is a business, and it's not like the guy doesn't have a good career to look back on with a Stanley Cup trophy, a Hart trophy, and millions in the bank. Maybe he can recapture his magic somewhere else, but right now I don't believe that Washington is the place for him to do that. Washington might be 3 deep at goalie without Theo, Holtby is 7-0-1 for Hershey and could easily develop into a solid net minder in the near future.

i was at that game right behind the goal i got to see three-or-more suck ass in person, my father in law had a good point though three-or-more has been bitching about neuvirth playing so maybe brodure just left him in there to suck ass to show him how much he actually sucks, cause i don't see how he could be left in after letting three go by in the first, he gives up so many rebounds it makes me sick, i can't wait til varley is back

and i would like to send a big ffffffffffff you to team canada, good luck in the olympics without one of the best defense men in the nhl jackasses, keep your head up greeny

Re: Washington Capitals 2009-2010 ongoing thread

I hate it when the Caps slump. Ironically the loss to Carolina now makes me feel better about the loss to San Jose because if they beat Carolina and loss to San Jose I would wonder about their ability to compete with the big boys, but now it's obvious that they're lost right now and they just need to get their mojo back.

Re: Washington Capitals 2009-2010 ongoing thread

They really should have put the Caps in the winter classic. The NHL gets very few chances to impress on national television and a 1-0 game in the 3rd period probably isn't the best way to go about getting new fans. Hopefully next year they can play Chicago or Boston. I'd like save Pittsburgh for a game that isn't so....different to say the least, I've never seen seasoned skaters slip so much.

Still I saw this breakaway from Philly in the second period and the guy just did a simple wrist shot, I remember thinking that not only would Ovechkin get a few of those but we'd see a couple of cool dekes to go with it.

Re: Washington Capitals 2009-2010 ongoing thread

I believe I heard Melrose say that next years classic should be in Yankee Stadium... Rangers vs. Caps.

The second those tickets go on sale, I'm snagging as many up as I can.

Re: Washington Capitals 2009-2010 ongoing thread

the caps need to tighten up. they lost again today, that makes three losses in a row. i'm starting to wonder if trading away clark and jurcina was a bad move because since the trade the caps have not looked very good.

It's a long season. One week you're on top of the world after beating the likes of Buffalo, Colorado, and New Jersey then you drop 3 straight starting with a loss to possibly the worst team in the league. Personally I trust GMGM but yeah I'm starting to wonder to about the trading of Clark. Still I wouldn't bet against this team in the long run. I just hope they can get their mojo back by Saturday when I get to see them in person for the first time since 1991.

Washington Capitals goaltender Semyon Varlamov expected to miss 2 more weeks - ESPN

I swear if they play Theo on Saturday I'm going to be ticked.

Re: Washington Capitals 2009-2010 ongoing thread

30+ shots on Neuvy and the guy gives up 1 goal. Meanwhile the Caps get 8 in the net. Hell of a team. Not even sure if they need a trade that straps them long term a la Souray. I'm starting to think that Neuvy might be better then Varly, but even then I'd say that the two are pretty close. The main edge that Varly has on Neuvy is two shutouts as well as allowing no more then 4 goals in a game.

On a side note Braden Holtby is 11-1-1. He was 7-0-1 last time I posted something about him.

neuvy has definately impressed me lately, he seems to be playing with much more confidence but i wouldn't yet say he's better then varly. varly had been playing exceptionaly well before his injury, also, varly is pretty awesome in one-on-one situations like breakaways and shootouts.

i do agree that the two are close but i gotta give varly the edge.

Re: Washington Capitals 2009-2010 ongoing thread

Kind of an ugly win last night, but I'll take it.

The big one is tomorrow night. I'm getting pretty excited for this one. In case anyone is interested... I'm going to RFD for the game with a legion of Caps fans (and unfortunately a few Pens fans as well).

I'll be rocking my newly purchased Backstrom jersey. This game is HUUUUGE.

Our stars are really shining tonight. Semin's pass to Flash was just sick.
