The Caps started what might be their most anticipated season with a nearly perfect game. Alex Ovechkin had two goals and an assist and Brooks Laich added two power play goals after getting nine all of last season.

Jose Theodore let Semyon Varlamov know that there will be a serious competition for the no. 1 goalie spot. Theodore didn’t allow a goal until 7:56 in the third when the Caps already led 4-0. It came on a shorthanded breakaway and he got a piece of the puck before it trickled in.

And Now I Hate Chris Borque

Posted by SuckaFish

I know none of this was his fault. He should be Rockin’ the Red in Boston Thursday night. The Caps couldn’t get anyone to take Michael Nylander’s incredibly huge salary and so they had to waive Borque for cap reasons. But now that is all forgotten and he is one of them.

Caps Waive Chris Borque

Posted by SuckaFish

Well that didn’t last very long. One day after being told he had made the roster and would start the season in the NHL, the Caps placed Chris Borque on waivers because of salary cap concerns. The team has been unable to trade Michael Nylander and his massive contract which forced this move. If Borque isn’t claimed by another team he’ll likely head to Hershey.

Ex-Cap Sergei Federov is getting paid.

Well, technically he’s getting repaid his own money.

Well, he would be getting repaid if the guy who stole it from him had the money.
