Wednesday Roundup

Zzzzzz... Would someone kindly wake me when it's time to drop the puck again? Thanks.

Elsewhere 'Round the Rinks:

There's more fallout on Joe Finley's alleged mascot abuse. Seriously. The WCHA commissioner has now weighed in. The punishment? Finley must write a letter of apology to Bucky Badger. (h/t to DPlaya at Hockey in Wisconsin for the link).... Travis Morin is headed back to the ECHL after a brief two-game stint in Hershey in which he failed to find his way onto the score sheet.... Caps goaltending prospect Michal Neuvirth has been traded to Windsor.... The uniforms for this season's All-Star game (the voting for which is now open) have been revealed and, well, they're probably pretty much what you'd expect.... A handful of power rankings are out with the Caps at 28th (ahead of Buffalo?!), 28th, 28th, 29th, 29th, 30th and 30th.... Finally, on this date in 1979 the Caps tapped Gary Green to be the sixth head coach in team history (and, at just 26 years old, Green was the youngest head coach to ever stand behind an NHL bench).
