I found this very random blog post while searching for something unrelated the other day. Remarkable when you notice that date that this was posted (and what has occured since).
It can be easy to find shortcommings with this Captials team, but seeing something like this can help put things into perspective. If my math and memory are correct, the Caps were 13-19-4 at this point last season (Christmas) and just starting to show signs of life, but things still looked pretty bleak.
Thanks to all the Caps, coaches and everyone else involved for making 2008 the best hockey year this fan has seen in quite a long time--keep up the good work!
