Things to look forward to before more Caps Hockey

In no particular order...

  • Cheering for/against the Penguins/Bruins/Flyers/Canadiens/Red Wings/Sharks/Canucks/Blackhawks
  • Japers' Rink Rink Wraps and other excellent material to keep the calendar moving
  • Owning AP exams like Jaroslav Halak owned Alexander Semin about 40 times
  • Draft day in the NHL
  • The Stanley Cup Finals
  • The Calder Cup Playoffs
  • Some Caps at least getting some sort of medal at the World Championships
  • July 1, free agency
  • Tomas Fleischmann's (as of now) impending free (albeit restricted) agency
  • Bruce Boudreau re-thinking his system
  • Montreal getting killed by Pittsburgh
  • Dan Boyle going out early again (I hope)
  • George McPhee making another great signing or signings or trade(s) again (Note: I think Matt Cullen, Scott Niedermayer, Nicklas Lidstrom, Anton Volchenkov, Dan Hamhuis, and Dennis Seidenberg look good in red. All but Hamhuis have already donned red too)
  • Development camp in July
  • School coming to an end
  • Nicklas Backstrom's shiny new contract
  • A lesser emphasis on regular season wins
  • A better perspective on what the Caps need to do in the regular season and the playoffs, with regards to play, system, and personnel management
  • Smarter Caps fans
  • Gaining the sympathy of every hockey fan in California
  • The NHL Awards. At the moment seems like Jose Theodore will be the only Caps winner though.
