Jon Press, Managing Editor for Japers’ Rink, joins Adam Stringham to discuss the Capitals’ performance thus far this year.

Topics covered include:

  • Sports are supposed to be entertaining - are the Capitals fun to watch this year despite their mediocre results?
  • With changes to the roster, can the team play the same way they have in the recent past?
  • What is behind the Caps’ poor penalty differential, and what can they do to fix it?
  • Just how much pressure is Barry Trotz under to turn this team around right now? How about Brian MacLellan?
  • Is this team, as presently constituted, good enough to make the playoffs and make another run at a Cup?

That and much, much more in the latest episode of JRR. Give it a listen!
