Why all the negativity surrounding the Capitals lately? What's going on with Erat, Holtby, Oleksy and Wilson? We answer your questions.
The Capitals recalled defenseman Dmitry Orlov from the Hershey Bears three days after his agent requested a trade.
Canadian Thanksgiving is celebrated the second Monday of October, but that won't stop many of the Capitals from enjoying two American traditions -- turkey and football – Thursday.
Twenty-four hours after confirming he's asked general manager George McPhee to trade him and that it's "time for me to go," Erat tried to make Tuesday a normal day at the Capitals' practice facility.
Eight months later, McPhee stands by his trade of Flip Forsberg for Marty Erat and Michael Latta.
Nicklas Backstrom remained perfect in shootouts as the Caps remained within one point of the division-leading Penguins.
A year ago, thanks to the lockout-condensed NHL season, the Capitals had played seven regular-season games by the time 18 days had passed from the opening of training camp.
George McPhee is either a genius who has been able to oversell or a schlub who got taken in a moment of delusion and mad desire to finally see his team make a real, live run at the Stanley Cup. We may know the answer in a couple of weeks. We may not know for a few years.
He said Erat showed nothing but class when he was asked to play alongside Erat and rookie Tom Wilson on the fourth line at the start of the season.
"It's tough for me because Marty has been such a good guy to me and Tom as rookies coming in," Latta said. "When Marty played with us in the first few weeks of the season he was so good to us. If it happens and he ends up getting traded, that would be sad. But obviously, he wants to play more."
