As the 2011-12 season has come to a close, the time has come to evaluate what it meant for the Capitals, both as a team and as individuals.  As such, as the summer progresses, I will be writing a report card, or individual evaluation, for each player who played in 9 (~10%) of the team's games, or 4 playoff games. Next up is goaltender Michal Neuvirth, who finished his fourth season in the Washington organization on this past campaign.

Tarik El-Bashir Leaving WaPo For Comcast SportsNet

Washington Post sports reporter Tarik El-Bashir is headed to Comcast SportsNet to cover the Redskins, according to a WaPo memo (below).
