    Ahoy, Travis Boyd! —- Some young, new Caps player (like you) needs to make something BIG happen, this season, before Christmas. Score some goals. Make some big hits. Do SOMETHING. There are fancy rookies lighting it up on other NHL teams, and some 2nd or 3rd year players doing the same. Will you be the next Red Hot NHL forward? Sure would help get the Caps out of their early-season funk
