  • We’re not dictators-in-training who have the desire to pardon actual murderers and other horrible people - but we will pretend to have the power to pardon some Caps villains! [Rink]
  • Handing out some hardware to some of the biggest names in DC sports. [Athletic ($)]
  • The top three Caps players who deserved to get lots of presents from Santa this holiday season... [S&S]
  • ...and the top three foes who deserved nothing but coal. [S&S]
  • Engaging in a little gift-giving with all 31 NHL teams. [The Score]
  • Once again, people vote on who they think is the top defensemen in the NHL. And once again John Carlson doesn’t get the respect he deserves. [NHL]
  • Continuing to look back at the top Caps stories of 2020 with a sad one as we bid Braden Holtby adieu. [NBCSW]
  • The schedule for the upcoming season has some intriguing matchups in store (and then you’ll get to see them seven more times). [NHL]
  • Happy birthday to Christmas babies Dmitry Mironov (55) and Brian Stapleton, and to Boxing Day babies Tomas Kundratek (31) and Oskar Osala (33).
  • Finally, we loved them when they dressed up. We loved them when they sang. But the glitchy Zoom-card that wasn’t is the most relatable (and 2020ish) Caps holiday card of all time. Delightful.
