    Big props for the Bears organization bringing both teams to the ice for a moment of silence for Adam Johnson. Johnson was a member of the Pens organization before going overseas. Hershey and Pens have a helluva rivalry, so it’s nice to see the respect and sportsmanship after a tragedy.

    Man this team is deep and talented. Small problem in that we have a lot of 25+ AHL veterans that are too good to take out of the lineup but then we can’t play all of our true Caps prospects. I get Sgarbossa and Veccicone. Huntington has also been very impressive so hard to get him out of lineup now. NAK should probably be in the NHL rather than Phillips so where do we put him if he comes back. That means some of Sudz, Rybinski, Hofer, Trineyev, have to sit. Defense is all old too except for Iorio.

    Not complaining (really). I like winning and you need a deep talented team to make a long run. Just hate that some of our youngsters who are good enough to play aren’t getting in the lineup nightly.
