OT Beer (Because who really wants to talk about this team right now, anyway?)

As a discussion starting point, rank your favorite local DMV beers (to include Baltimore because I'm the one posting this fanshot), #1 through #5. Rank your favorite BEERS, not breweries. Inclusion of multiple beers from the same brewery is permitted.

Link to MRTS Fantasy League Rosters + Announce Your Keepers

68

From the looks of the email chain (and assuming we can bring back Rob and SME), I think we have at least 9 of the original 12 interested in kickstarting the Marleau Runs These Streits fantasy keeper league for another season. The fanshot link will take you to last year's league page, so you can see current rosters. I'll also post the the draft order plus the spreadsheet of swapped picks in the comments.

Bubba Watson cries more than Dick Vermeil. He's awesome, but c'mon, get it together man!

Japers' Rink Glossary, v 2.0

Long overdue, I present the Japers' Rink Glossary, v. 2.0.* This site has been my home away from home for almost four years now**, and I'm glad to have found a way to give back after all JP and...

Capitol Punishment Returns?

OT, but I know there are some DCBB.blogspot fans around the Rink. With the news, I may have to start following the Nats again this year.

Carlson's "No Look" Shot in 20 Frames

On first look, I wasn't sure if Caps prospect John Carlson had lifted his head while uncorking Tuesday night's tournament-winning OT goal in the WJC finals. On second look, it's clear he stared...

Real American Hero: John Carlson

70

Capitals prospect and Hershey Bear D John Carlson lets rip on a gorgeous gold-medal-winning goal in OT of the WJC Finals. The entire overtime period can be seen on demand at TSN.ca. TSN's Bob McKenzie deems the "rambling, gambling" Carlson USA's hero of the tournament (skip through the Eberle love). And finally, a post-game interview with the once-and-future Washington Capital.

Captain Courageous: Chris Clark

3

Chris Clark's departure has led to a number of eulogies already, including this one by mainstay blogger(s) The Peerless Prognosticator. Community members at Japers' Rink are posting their thoughts in the original trade thread as well as this Fanshot. But the best synopsis of the kind of player you're getting can be found at this link, summarizing an incident in 2006. Caps fans called him Captain Courageous or Captain Cadaver. Finally, Rink Wraps for Clark's 2007-2008 and 2008-2009. Obviously, Clark's 2006-2007 was his best year statistically as a Capital (30 goals), but he's healthy again and has been a contributor this season.

Mock Arbitration: Milan Jurcina

I thought you folks might be interested to read the "mock arbitration" that unfolded last summer between the editors of Japers' Rink. Later, our guesses on Arbitration Day, and discussion of his reward. Other worthwhile SBN-endorsed links to help acquaint yourself with your newest Slovak: A comparison between Juice and Shaone Morrisonn (of the two defensemen the Caps were looking to off-load, you got the preferred player). Juice's Rink Wrap for 2008-2009. Juice's Rink Wrap for 2007-2008.

This mix of personnel selected almost entirely on skill level and skating ability by head coach John Tortorella and GM Glen Sather is as passive as a hockey team gets. There's not a single mean one on the back end. Not one. The Rangers play Washington and have to deal with John Erskine, Shaone Morrisonn, Milan Jurcina and Brian Pothier, every one of whom will come from behind and use the stick.

Larry Brooks in the New York Post this morning, lamenting NY Rangers team toughness and citing...the Washington Capitals?
