DC Needs A World Series (And Why I Want Rizzo To Sign Pujols)

Let me start out by telling you guys that there is no actual statistical stuff in this post.  Nor is there any real reason for you guys to read it.  I'm writing it for myself, in a public forum,...


Commissioner Frau Mage - On Alignment

Yes, it's a tiring debate, yes, it's annoying.  No, it's not going away.  So last night at Glory Days I sat with my wife (Hereafter referred to as Frau Mage) and informed her she was the new...


OT...soccer? Thread.

Caps on a 9 game streak, MLS season starts, CL is in full swing and the Euro clubs are on the downswing of their seasons. I want to chat.


Should fans be classy or outrageous?

We hear it all the time, and a post in the conversation on Jason Arnott brought by Chris Burton really got me kind of going.  As hockey fans, a lot of us here would like to be considered classy,...

Japers' Rink FHL season 2.


JRFHL - season two! I'm about to renew the season now. We can discuss schedules/draft time here. If you were in the league last year and want out this year, let us know here or send me an email so we can get things going on this and fill in the missing slots. Sorry this took so long, I've been working 8-6 every day with a 2 and a half hour commute (no jokes). Thanks, WM


Japers' Rink (Fantasy) Hockey League - What went well, what went wrong? Let's find out.

I know the Stanley Cup Finals haven't wrapped up yet, but I was thinking about starting some discussion for the direction we want to take the league, and get some discussion in on some general...


Why I'm Being A Jerk in GDTs (and other various stories)

For the last several years (and it's been several) I've been finding solace in a little place known as Japers' Rink.  And many of you have as well.  Now, we all have one major thing in common, and...


Dear Habs... The Whiter Mage Edition

Dear Habs...


If the Caps need an enforcer, who can it be?

Here, we (Collectively) often talk about the need for an enforcer, or more grit.  We discuss whether or not the aspect of an enforcer is necessary in today's game, among other things.  We also get...

Divisional Realignment?

A conversation with Stanley Cup of Chowder over on his blog (http://www.stanleycupofchowder.com/2009/10/1/1065344/bruins-fall-to-washington-4-1-in#comments) has got me thinking - the Caps really do...


Japers' Rink Fantasy Hockey Draft

Sorry for the second fanpost, but there's nothing I can do to create a new poll with the new suggestions.  Tuesday may be a better option.  As far as time, please leave comments to what time is the...


Japers' Rink Fantasy Hockey League

Seeing as CapsCon is Saturday, I'm thinking we should have the draft Friday Night (As a way to kick it off and brag about who got Ovechkin at JapersFest) or Sunday Afternoon.  I'll have a poll...

Caps Fans in Winchester?

If any Caps fans in the greater DC area want to gather and go to the local Capitals friendly bar in the 'Cha, Glory Days, lemme know.  Almost every other bar in town is Penscentric, so it'd be nice...

Coyotes, pack your bags?


This scares me. Years of "Things are ok" seem to be culminating in the wrong way for Phoenix fans. What scares me more is the NHL's response, "We have just become aware of today’s Bankruptcy Court filing purportedly made on behalf of the Phoenix Coyotes. We are investigating the circumstances surrounding the petition, including the propriety of its filing. We have removed Jerry Moyes from all positions of authority to act for or on behalf of the Club. The League will appear and proceed before the Bankruptcy Court in the best interests of all of the Club’s constituencies, including its fans in Arizona and the League’s 29 other Member Clubs." From BIll Daly. This makes me think that even if the move to Hamilton (Or Toronto, or wherever) is the best move for the Franchise, the League will try and keep a team in Phoenix, just because they think people in Hamilton are going to Leafs games and buying jerseys. That they're already league "Resources". At this point, let Balsille do it. He can't be any worse than what we have now.

Mike Brown hit on Jiri Hudler


Time to man up, Colin. If Brashear's hit is illegal, and worth a five game suspension, this hit by Mike Brown on Hudler needs to be similarly punished. I know it won't be as long as Brash's suspension, because of the 5 minute major + Game Misconduct issued, but with the circumstances that it is, it's time that the league does something right - give Brown a 5 game suspension, or the point of suspending Brashear for five is lost on everyone.

Rangers get compensatory pick for Cherepanov


Might be moot now with the whole threadjack, but just to prove I can make a fanshot, and won't fuck up like that in the future, here it is. For what it's worth, I have no problem with the Rangers getting the draft pick, as the rules are like that. I do have a problem with the way it's worded, that if a team doesn't sign a player, they get a new draft pick. I feel that's far too generous to teams. Now, if you want a prospect or a player dying to warrant a draft pick, that's one thing. But the situation at hand brings to light something that I think is a problem. If you don't think a player will sign with you, you should not draft that player. I know that may seem controversial, but it only makes sense to me. The idea that you should get that pick back if it doesn't pan out is unfair to teams that do draft well, and as others (Namely, JP have said), it seems unfair that the system punishes teams that are more loyal to their draft picks by signing them. I wouldn't want a pick if something happened and Gustafsonson didn't make it to the Caps. That's because we should have drafted better. While deaths may warrant something, that's another discussion. But the rules as they are, in my opinion, are a joke.


Trade Deadline Approaching. What Do We Do?

Obviously, by "we" I mean GMGM.  But speculation time! Last year at this time, I wrote an article on this topic on Bleacher Report, and I am planning to do so again.  The following is my...


I Understand Most Shoddy Reportings, But NHL.com?

Mike G. Morreale, you are a winner.  You write for NHL.com.  That being the case, how can you make such a terrible error about the NHL? "The 6-foot-9, 260-pound Chara, a player on the hated rival...
