The NHL on NBC schedule is out now for this season and we’ve got a few weekends circled already.

Matt Bradley wasn’t afraid to give an honest assessment of his former team, the Washington Capitals. In the process, he backed up many common criticisms of the team, with Alexander Semin receiving the harshest critiques of them all.

The Caps best and worst shows us that you can improve on a classic look while trying to ignore that pesky experimental teal-blue and black phase.

Bruce Boudreau expects that Alex Ovechkin will become an even better team leader this season. Good thing too since he’s the team captain.
Aug 9, 2011, 12:35 PM EST
Caps coach Bruce Boudreau was happy to have the Caps be more defensive last season, but he wants them to do that and score tons of goals this season.

Four active NHLers made NHL.com’s list of the ten biggest hitters. Check out who they were and discuss those choices in this post.

Alex Ovechkin will take his hockey skills (and disembodied head) to a new endorser, leaving CCM and Reebok behind.

We already knew Alex Ovechkin was a big deal, but now he’s on a candy bar in Canada to really hammer the point home.

You can kill the rumor mill on Steven Stamkos. Tampa Bay signs their superstar restricted free agent to a five-year deal worth $37.5 million.

The Capitals are wise to resist the urge to “blow things up” after a few disappointments, as owner Ted Leonsis points out that their window to win a title could be open for “10-15 years.”

Along with naming legends like Bobby Orr and Guy Lafleur, NHL.com also tabbed Alex Ovechkin and Pavel Datsyuk for its list of the most exciting players of all-time.
Jul 2, 2011, 8:01 PM EST
We can say the Capitals are officially strong contenders for the Stanley Cup now that they’ve locked up Tomas Vokoun to be their goalie next season at a discount price.

It’s free agent day and Brad Richards is the biggest prize on the market. But where will he go? Here’s five places we think he’s got a great shot at landing at.
Jun 23, 2011, 11:45 AM EST
The NHL announced their end of season All-Star Teams and the usual suspects were scattered throughout the first and second teams.

The Lightning and Steven Stamkos are in an unusual contract situation. That being said, if they’re going to try to duplicate any other star’s deal, they should lean toward Sidney Crosby’s contract rather than Alex Ovechkin’s lengthy pact.
Jun 2, 2011, 11:16 PM EST
Now that the Dallas Stars are going to part ways with upcoming unrestricted free agent Brad Richards, our minds drift off wondering about where he’ll land next season and beyond.

Ryan Kesler’s emergence in the playoffs is making all the difference for Vancouver. Also, adulation for Pekka Rinne and James van Riemsdyk, piling on Alexander Semin, and perhaps some premature looking ahead to the next round.

Another year, another playoff failure for the Washington Capitals. Just what went wrong this time around? We take a look at the numbers and misery in D.C.
May 5, 2011, 11:03 AM EST
Capitals owner Ted Leonsis got a few things off his chest about his team being swept out of the playoffs by Tampa Bay.
May 5, 2011, 9:00 AM EST
Change will be coming in Washington next season. That’s not all we’re on about today though as we point the finger at Brian Boucher for Game 3 and praise the Lightning’s secondary scorers.
May 4, 2011, 11:26 PM EST
The Caps are done getting swept out of the playoffs after a 5-3 loss to Tampa Bay. The Lightning are very real and now they wait for their next opponent in the Eastern Conference final.
May 4, 2011, 11:59 AM EST
It’s not quite a guarantee, but Alex Ovechkin issued a statement that could be inspirational … or maybe a future punchline.
May 4, 2011, 9:51 AM EST
Say, these Capitals look a bit familiar and that’s not a good thing. Getting off of Alex Ovechkin’s case would be wise but Bruce Boudreau is officially on notice. Also, Kesler fixes the Canucks power play while Shea Weber seethes.
