Honor Roll


The Kudos for Caps campaign is in full swing in the NHL and AHL recently. Four of the last five awards for NHL Player of the Month have been awarded to a Washington Capital. Alexander Semin in October, and the other Alex guy in November and also two of the last three months at the end of the last regular season (interrupted only by Evgeni Malkin).

Not to be outdone, AHL farmhand Oskar Osala of the Hershey Bears also got into the mix as Player of the Month in November.

Remember when the Capitals were the most anonymous team in the league? My how things have changed!

Okay here is the latest question to ponder.

Would you trade Nylander to the Blackhawks to get NIKOLAI KHABIBULIN especially since the goaltending at times has been less then spectacular. Now Khabibulin’s contract is up at the end of the year as well, so you get out from underneath of Nylander’s contract in time to give that money to someone else like Semin or Backstrom. I would think that they would want to try to get a prospect or at least a draft pick as well but that might not be in the cards. Thoughts?
