Can the Capitals finally get over the hump in a pivotal 2011-12 season? It’s hard to say no after they added a legitimate top goalie in Tomas Vokoun.
Sep 7, 2011, 8:00 AM EDT
Some might view Tomas Vokoun’s comments as bulletin board material for the Red Wings, but the biggest factors point to the fact that Washington just made more sense for the underrated goalie.

Michal Neuvirth says he wants to challenge new guy and childhood hero Tomas Vokoun for the #1 job in goal. That’s cute.

So why did former NHL goalie Arturs Irbe leave his position as goalie coach of the Capitals? It’s a reason a lot of regular folks can identify with.
Aug 2, 2011, 7:45 PM EDT
Despite watching Caps GM George McPhee sign an outsider to take the #1 goaltending spot, Michal Neuvirth is saying all the right things as he prepares for next season.

As it turns out, the Capitals weren’t the only team in the running for Tomas Vokoun. A translated report indicates that the Red Wings had some interest, too. This post explains why Washington won the Vokoun derby.

If you thought the Capitals signed Tomas Vokoun to look pretty on the bench while Michal Neuvirth started games, you might be disappointed to know that Bruce Boudreau believes Vokoun is their #1 guy.
Jul 2, 2011, 8:01 PM EDT
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.

Restricted free agent to-be Semyon Varlamov won’t be waiting around for the Capitals to make him an offer as he’s headed to the KHL to free up the Caps three-way goalie jumble.
Jun 26, 2011, 4:27 PM EDT
Things could change, but rumors indicate that pending restricted free agent Semyon Varlamov is unlikely to re-sign with the Washington Capitals.
Jun 21, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT
Semyon Varlamov has told the Capitals that he’d like to stay in the NHL and sign an extension. The problem is that he’s not willing to take a huge pay cut from the KHL; and SKA St. Petersburg would reportedly offer approximately $4 million.

The Washington Capitals announced that former goalie great Olie Kolzig will mentor new goalies as the team’s associate goalie coach.

Despite a very successful 2010-11 season, Arturs Irbe won’t be Washington’s goalie coach. Read more for how much this might impact the Capitals’ goalie, especially Semyon Varlamov.
May 6, 2011, 8:15 PM EDT
Capitals goalie Semyon Varlamov is a bit sour about being made into a backup goalie in Washington but hopeful he can land a starting job somewhere in the NHL next season.
May 4, 2011, 1:43 PM EDT
To little surprise, Bruce Boudreau wasn’t in a particularly forthcoming mood about his job security, Mike Green’s injury or which goalie he’ll start in Game 4.

May 1, 2011, 10:52 PM EDT
The Lightning rode great performances by Dwayne Roloson, Martin St. Louis and Vincent Lecavalier and some lucky bounces to a 3-2 OT win against the Capitals. The Bolts go back to Tampa Bay with a shocking 2-0 lead in the series.
May 1, 2011, 12:55 PM EDT

Apr 24, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT
The Penguins might be leading their series with Tampa Bay, but they’ve got a reason or two to be nervous. Also, Washington’s toughness, the joy of a rivalry, Jon Quick’s bounce-back game, and Flyers goalie roulette.
