Caps out of playoffs. What next?

The Washington Capitals were officially eliminated from the NHL playoffs last night.  It is the first time since the 2006/07 season that the Capitals roster will be watching the playoffs from the comfort of their own homes. Sad?  Yes.  Necessary?  Yes. Think about it.  If the Caps squeeked into the NHL playoffs, with the roster constructed as is, they would not have advanced...

The fall of the Washington Capitals

With their 2-1 loss Friday night to the New Jersey Devils, the Washington Capitals playoff chances are all but dead. [ RMNB ] With six games left, everyone started to realize it would take divine intervention for the Capitals to make the playoffs.

Will George McPhee Survive In Washington?

from Mike Wise of the Washington Post, If the Capitals fall short of bringing Leonsis at least two profitable home postseason series this year, he might have little choice but to start over with a new front office. I’m not endorsing McPhee’s firing, especially just to appease angry fans. I am saying 16 years is an incredibly long time to run a pro team. Outside the NHL...

Time For Changes In Buffalo And Washington

from Adam Proteau of The Hockey News, It’s nearly August, for hockey gods’ sake. Does anyone want to tell Sabres GM Darcy Regier and his Capitals counterpart George McPhee? Both are doing their best statue impersonations at a time in each team’s history that cries out for at least a modicum of change.

What Did McPhee Do?

from pucksandbooks of On Frozen Blog, Once upon a time, Capitals General Manager George McPhee was viewed, rightly I think, as cautious and shrewd each spring around trade deadline time.

The Capitals Sure Are Missing Alexander Semin

Where is Alex Semin? George McPhee has been with the Washington Capitals since 1997. He’s had a great run since becoming the GM, but I think it’s time to call out George McPhee. It might be past time. Here in this blog we talk about Ernie Grunfeld a lot and the bonehead moves he’s made over the past decade with the Wizards but George McPhee, up until the last two years, has...
