Dear Mr. Fantasy, Play Us A Game

The good folks at Fantasy Hockey Scouts asked me to be their Capitals expert again for their annual Bloggers Breakout Q&A. Each year they poll the blogosphere for team-related and league-wide analysis; my pick last season of Mike Knuble as breakout player earned high praise in retrospect, despite some initial doubts (“Really? You’re picking a 37-year-old for a breakout season?” Yes, really.). Continue reading

Crafting High-End Hockey Sticks

In this clip, you’ll see how carbon-fiber EASTON hockey sticks are created . . . it’s a pretty cool six minutes, particularly the automated slap-shot machine in the final testing (I want one!).

Capitals First-Timers — Loving The Game

We here at OFB, and most of our readers, are long-time Capitals fans. We’ve been through the tough times; the dashed hopes; Juneau jubilation and Cup-finals disappointment; the Jagr-signing euphoria and the Jagr-reality let-down; the dreaded (but necessary) fire sale.

So it’s easy to forget what it was like when we first fell head over heels for hockey, and the Washington Capitals in particular.

Mrs. OrderedChaos’ coworker Megan had never been to a Capitals game. Her brother plays hockey in Upstate New York, but the family overall is pretty new to the sport.
