  • Amazingly enough, the future is uncertain for back-to-back Presidents' Trophy-winning coach Barry Trotz (and loads of other Caps thoughts). [Sportsnet (30 Thoughts)]
  • The future is also uncertain for Karl Alzner, who is likely on his way to free agency. [RMNB]
  • The future is, wait for it... uncertain for Philipp Grubauer as his former GM George McPhee prepares to stock the new Las Vegas team. [CSNMA]
  • If they do pick him up, they’ll be getting a good one. Check out this ridiculous save from Germany’s 4-3 win over Latvia:
  • After spending the last few months on the team's third pair, Kevin Shattenkirk's top priority is the opportunity to play a bigger role - either with the Caps or elsewhere. [WashTimes]
  • Would that role become available for him in DC if the Caps trade John Carlson? [StarsandSticks]
  • Injuries and yet another playoff disappointment follow Alex Ovechkin into the offseason, but he'll bounce back. [Stars and Sticks]
  • The Bears fell to Providence last night, which means...another Game 7 for the organization, coming right up. [Patriot-News, NoVa Caps, Capitals Outsider]
  • Washington is not actually the saddest sports city in the history of sports cities. If you say so, Dan. [WaPo]
