GMGM on his team

"We feel, today, that if we can ever get everybody in at once, it’s a pretty good hockey team. That’s what’s been unfortunate; we just can’t get a healthy team. . . . But if we can get it together, we like this group. It’s a pretty good group. And if it makes the playoffs, there are going to be teams that don’t want to play us." - George McPhee

GMGM on going all-in

"If you’ve got a chance to do something, you’re all in and you get what you need. What you pay for it is secondary. You get what you need," McPhee said. "We had some real good clubs here for a number of years. And we paid a lot over the years to add to the club at the deadline. You owe that to your team and your fanbase."

Malkin believed coaches catered to players who were members of his country's Kontinental Hockey League. He sensed a point was being made at the expense of star Russians — specifically, he and Washington's Alex Ovechkin — who have chosen to remain in the NHL.

Is Anyone Going to Ask McPhee A Tough Question?

"I don't think it's too much to ask that when the GM of one of the most disappointing teams in the league--and one that has been in a steady decline for the last three years--speaks to you for the first time since Thanksgiving, he should at least spend that half hour on somewhat of a hot seat. And yet after watching that press conference, it appears McPhee didn't even really need to break a sweat."

The [Swedish] player that I personally have the highest expectations for is Nicklas Bäckström, that he takes that next step and really establishes himself as a top 5 or top 10 player in the NHL, and that he takes on a bigger leadership role in Washington. That would be great to see.

Mats Sundin talks about his expectations for Nicklas Bäckström this year with Swedish newspaper Expressen.

Not sure how these new fan shots work. I just want to weigh interest in a 11/17 bus trip to hershey to see the bears against the baby pens, current quotes i have gotten are around $88 for the bus and a 100 level ticket.

"This place was great. When I first came here, when I first signed, I went to a Caps game. And the place was packed, and the people brought it. And I thought man, this place, this is what I want it to be. And it took almost two years to get it this way, but here we are. You’ve got to love these fans."

"My legs felt good and I wanted to be dangerous with the puck every time," Galiev said."I'm just having fun and this will be a great memory. I've had three great seasons here and we're looking forward to the Memorial Cup."

Daughter just sent this to me from Italy. Hope it doesn't offend. Our father who art in DC.,Hockey be thy name. Thy will be done, The cup will be won. On ice, as well as in the stands. Give us this day our hockey sticks. And forgive us our penalties, as we forgive those who cross-check against us, Lead us not into elimination. But deliver us to victory. In the name of the fans, the Caps, and Lord Stanley... Amen.
