I commend to your attention the most recent fit of gutsy thoughtfulness from my blogger buddy Ed Frankovic, who with commendable clarity of consideration arrives at this sobering recommendation as it relates to the handling of the Capitals roster here in late March: tear it down, and quite a bit.
If you’re a regular reader here you’ve long known where I stand with this organization relative to its present configuration. When the Grand Plan was unveiled at the dawning of the Era of Ovechkin I bought in, and redded-up with everyone else for a fair portion of the past decade. But I began noticing grave trouble signs a couple of years back — Jose Theodore; Brinks truck for Sarge; passing on Gill and Guerin; turning up our nose at free agent Willie Mitchell; hodge-podge offseason roster construction — and striving to be a commentator of integrity, I had to call out malfeasance where I saw it.
The Capitals this morning are very much on the outside looking in at postseason ...
BEST OF MAXIM
GRODY TO THE MAX
Since the Washington Capitals didn’t play on Wednesday night, I’m guessing that this occurred during the Capitals Tuesday night 3-2 loss to the New York Islanders. This obviously isn’t Alex Ovechkin’s first time getting stitched up, but in typical Ovechkin fashion, he seemed to take it as a joke. After all, this is the guy that lost one of his fake teeth when he took...
On Thursday morning, Alexander Ovechkin was hit in the face by a puck during a Washington Capitals practice. Ovie immediately left the ice after the injury which occurred during a 2-on-1 drill when a save by goaltender Braden Holtby caused the puck to come up and strike Ovechkin in the chin.
The Capitals superstar, whose quality of play has been trending upward as of late (six goals...
The only thing worse than taking a puck to the face and gashing your chin open during a game is taking a puck to the face and gashing your chin open during practice. Alex Ovechkin could attest to that, although the Washington Capitals star seemed to take it quite well.
According to the Washington Post, Ovechkin took a puck to the face during Thursday’s practice and had to leave...
Mike Milbury can question Alex Ovechkin‘s toughness all he wants, but on Thursday, Ovi proved some grit by laughing off a puck to the face and 22 stitches.
During Capitals practice on Thursday morning, Ovechkin reportedly took a puck right to the chin and decided to share his battle wound with the world as he tweeted out “before” and “after shots.
Nice stitch work, Doc...
Washington Capitals star Alexander Ovechkin took a puck to the face during a Thursday practice, and the tweeted pic is pretty gruesome.
Contrary to Mike Milbury’s beliefs, Alex Ovechkin is one tough dude. He took a puck to the face in practice today and received 22 stitches. Ovechkin tweeted a couple pictures of his wound, which he apparently found to be very funny. As a side note, I think someone should teach Ovi how to properly construct an internet smiley face.

Alex Ovechkin took a puck to the chin in practice this morning, forcing him to leave the ice early. Afterward, he posted a photo of the wound on Twitter, along with this: “It’s hockey ))) hahaha”:
Two things: 1) If I ever receive a gash this big to my person, I will be crying and calling 911, not lol’ing; 2) I’m impressed by Ovi’s proper use of “it’s” vs. “its...
After giving the Washington Capitals a lift during their last road swing, Braden Holtby looks to continue his recent success away from home as they begin another trip.
He might not have to face the Buffalo Sabres' leading scorer in the opener.
Holtby and the Capitals seek their fourth straight road win and a season sweep of the Sabres for the first time in 24 years on Saturday...
