Last night the Capitals lost to the pukey Hurricanes 6-3.  Eric Staal had a FIVE POINT night.  Let that all sink in, kids.  6-3.  To the Hurricanes.

Bruce and Brooks and everyone else keeps going on and on about how finding out two hours before a game that two teammates/friends/the captain had been traded wasn’t the reason for their total disinterest in the game.  I know they’ve got to say things like that.  And part of that game was Theo sucking and Erskine sucking and then both of them sucking together.

But part of it was the trade.  You could tell.  The guys looked on the verge of tears in the postgame interviews.  I don’t understand why the trade had to be made RIGHT THEN.  If it had been in the works since September, it could have been done after the game or long enough before that the guys weren’t all in shock on the ice.

I just hope this game isn’t an indication of how things are going to go out in California.  That…would be bad.

At one point last night I read somewhere that they wouldn’t rush to name a new captain out of respect for Christopher.  Um, two things:

1.)  I get that, but right now your team is captainless and after the game last night, they need someone to stand up and tell them they all suck and get them motivated.

2.)  You’re really talking about respect for him right after you traded him?  For reals?

I’m taking this trade much harder than I probably should, but I’m on break so it’s not like I have other things to think about.

I can’t be mad at Lars Nicklas for taking a double minor because I still can’t stop laughing that he actually high-sticked a guy and did so hard enough to draw blood.

Andrej Sekera made the Slovakian Olympic team.  Woo, Reggie!  I’m not a huge fan of him and his bald head, but congrats.  Gooo Olympics!

I decided that if Paul makes Team USA I might have to splurge and get a Gaustad Team USA jersey.  Otherwise I’ll just get an Ovechkin Russia one or a Backstrom Sweden one.  My birthday is, after all, in the midst of all the Olympic fun.

If the Sabres fail to score on 17 power plays like they did last time they played Pittsburgh I will flip shit.  They also better win this game.  I looked for Sidney Crosby when I was at the mall yesterday but alas, it would appear as though he has filled his shopping quota for the month.
