    Trade Sheahan for a pick and/or prospect. He's a good soldier, a former first-round pick, a friend to doggos everywhere...but he's devolved into a more vanilla Joakim Andersson. Trade Howard or Mrazek. Don't really care which one. I doubt Green will want to re-sign with us. If we can bring him back on a reasonable short-term deal, do it. If we can't, then we can't. Losing Green would probably leave us with the worst blue line in recent NHL history, but maybe that'd be a positive thing, as the sheer suckitude of the situation might actually force Holland to take some real action re: fixing our back end. Assuming Frk has a "meh" season and isn't in a position to ask for a huge raise, re-sign him. Same with Bertuzzi, I guess. I hope AA has an excellent season and we can afford to give him a big raise and that will be enough for him. Larkin and Mantha are higher on the totem pole and the main priority has to be re-signing them. If we have to trade AA, so be it. Maybe he'd get us a good defenseman. Move Helm and/or Nielsen. Vegas? Arizona? (Abdelkader is untouchable and will spend his whole career with the Wings. I have accepted this.) Compel Kronwall into LTIRetirement. (Ericsson is untouchable and will spend the rest of his career with the Wings. I have accepted this.) Clear up the defense logjam. We don't need all of Sproul, Russo, Lashoff, Ouellet, Jensen in the system. Move out at least two of them. Try and fail to woo Tavares. Sign a cheap backup goalie. Do not sign Rick Nash. I fear Holland is going to try to sign Rick Nash. I hope he doesn't try to sign Rick Nash. He's probably going to sign Rick Nash. He's definitely going to sign Rick Nash. Give Rasmussen, Svechnikov, Hicketts roster spots out of camp. And Bertuzzi, I guess.

    I didn't want to say it at the time, but when he missed the empty net I knew the game was lost. I've concluded that Helm is a liability in high-pressure late-game situations where he has to use his brain and react quickly and intelligently. This is a thing going all the way back to that pivotal blown Tampa game in the 2015 playoffs. People point to Glendening's absence being the reason the Bolts won that game, but they forget that Helm had possession deep in the o-zone, tried to get fancy, coughed the puck up, and...well, the Bolts went the other way and tied it up, and then went on to win it in OT. More recently, he had a big hand in that blown lead in Ottawa. We played a solid game overall. The Caps are the more talented team, pound-for-pound, and that edge was the difference. Same with the Tampa and Toronto games. We're probably going to have to suffer through a looooot of these so-close-yet-so-far games this season.

    Ovechkin scores. Caps win 4-3. Once again, we found a way to give the game away.

    Wings to the PK. Ugh.
  5. 10/20 GDT - Red Wings vs Capitals - 7:30 PM EST

    To OT we go.
  6. 10/20 GDT - Red Wings vs Capitals - 7:30 PM EST

    Caps score. 3-3. Helm missed the empty net, so you knew they were gonna score.

    Wings to the PK. Hoo boy.

    I watch NHL.tv. Their feeds tend to be 30-45 seconds behind. Maybe tonight there's no lag!
