Screencap: x/Capitals

You know it’s almost hockey season when a fresh 200-foot sheet of ice is being laid out. The pond is officially frozen at Capital One Arena as the Washington Capitals get ready to embark on their 49th season as a franchise.

Formerly known as the Verizon Center and the MCI Center, the arena has been the home site for the Caps, Washington Wizards and Washington Mystics for the last 26 years, seating over 20,000 fans.

Washington is 550-295-34-96 all-time on 7th and F St. NW.

    I actually expected the on ice ads to increase this year. Looks like they haven’t although one ad looks very distracting.

      Martin Has still not signed anywhere. Just 22. 6’4”, sound stay at home player. A lot of experience for his age. There must be a fatal flaw I have yet to pick up on.

        To me he made no big mistakes, was just kind of invisible. 50 games, 3 goals, 6 assists, 19 PIM. Playoffs 2 assists, 2 minutes. Benton Maass was a lot more noticeable. So I can see him not getting a Bears contract yet as they wait to see how the Caps contracts settle out, but I don’t know that the Rays would turn him down.

        I have to think that he wants to stay in NA since he has not signed with a Euro team. The ECHL is hiring, but he might not be answering their calls waiting for an AHL offer. No news on him so it’s anybody’s guess. If the Rays don’t want him back, they certainly haven’t said anything. But a Rays contract would be a step down from the Bears contract he had last year.

        I always had a soft spot for Has. Thought he would use that 6’4 frame and improve but he just hasn’t developed. I wonder if he lacks some of that fire and desire.
