Teams seeking a supplemental scorer should call Washington Capitals general manager George McPhee ASAP.Winger Mike Knuble, 39, was a healthy scratch for consecutive games this week for the Capitals. â€śItâ€™s very humbling,â€ť Knuble told the Washington Post. â€śIt takes you back to when you were a young player trying to find your way. You definitely donâ€™t like it; you hate it as a player. You canâ€™t walk around and pout, though, and be miserable about it. Itâ€™s not the first time itâ€™s happened to somebody, it wonâ€™t be the last time.â€ťHis singular skill has been his ability to convert garbage goals around the net, but he hasnâ€™t scored in his last 27 games. The Post calculated that he has converted just 7 percent of his scoring chances this season.â€śI canâ€™t say that Iâ€™ve played consistently well enough. I thought I played well in January, thought I had a few bad breaks -- hit the post a couple times consecutively,â€ť Knuble told the Post. â€śBottom line is you didnâ€™t finish, that didnâ€™t go in for you. A little bit of coulda, shoulda, woulda. Thereâ€™s still a lot of time in the season and lot of games left. Daleâ€™s got to put the best lineup he can out there, what he feels the best gives the team best chance to win.â€ťCoach Dale Hunter praised Knubleâ€™s character, but noted that the veteran hasnâ€™t been able to keep up.â€śHeâ€™s a leader, so itâ€™s always tough,â€ť Hunter told the Post. â€śYou need leadership in the room Itâ€™s just one of those things. We thought it was necessary at the time to add more speed and weâ€™ll miss his leadership, but it gives other people a chance to become more vocal in the dressing room.â€ťKnuble scored 29 and 24 goals the previous two seasons, so another team may be willing to team him with a couple of playmakers to see if he can regain his touch.
