Speaking of Gabby's profanity-laced locker room rant, his mom was none too pleased. Speaking of moms, the Globe and Mail's Roy MacGregor dishes on how NHL teams need to organize an annual mom's trip in addition to the traditional dad's trip, which is usually replete with golf and fishing. Right on mister!
Here are some other items for your leisurely Saturday over coffee perusal:
- Congrats to big, bad John Erskine who signed a two-year extension with the Caps yesterday! The 30-year old defenseman with the magnificent mustache is having a stellar season with seven points (three goals, four assists) and 43 penalty minutes in 31 games for the Capitals so far. His three goals are a career high.
- Mike Brophy speculates on what the (bleep) may be the keys to turning around the Capitals' losing streak.
- OFB offers their opinion on a variety of asundry factors leading to the current situation.
- Eric Duhatschek questions if there may be a lack of leadership in the room that may not be helping the Caps' confidence and motivation (and no, no one is pointing the fingers at Brooks Laich in this department for sure).
