Rookie camp opens one week from tomorrow, but for now, it's still "Potpourri for $200, Alex."
Allan Muir wonders if Jose Theodore is a net loss (get it?) between the pipes for the Caps. You know my thoughts on both Muir and Theodore's prospects for success.... It recently occurred to me that Caps' goaltending prospect Braden Holtby is playing for coach/GM Lorne Molleken in Sasktatoon of the WHL. Yes, that Lorne Molleken.... The WTimes makes the bold assertion that Alex Ovechkin is "gonna set NHL records ... well, anything Wayne Gretzky hasn't put out of reach." Which is every one of 'em. Sweet.... Viktor Kozlov has been skating with several Kitties players down in Coral Springs. Hopefully their lack of offense isn't contagious... Dainius Zubrus (remember him?) will wear the number eight this season for the Devils. My guess is that on a scale of one to ten, he regrets not accepting the Caps' last offer about 12.... Sticking with former Caps, NHL.com has a piece on Olie Kolzig and his return to Germany.... Finally, when the Caps and Pens merge, here's what their logo will look like (scroll down). Wait, I wasn't supposed to release that news? Never mind.
