  1. @theminister Hey man, weirdest thing... Trevor vanRiemsdyk has been earning points on pickup as if he is a forward since I acquired him. Only getting 3 fantasy points for every goal and 3 fantasy points for every assist.
  2. @theminister Melker Karlsson is missing on pickup. Also thanks for all the hard work man.
  3. Caps top line center Kyle Turris has been playing with a broken finger the past couple weeks and is getting a few games off in order to recover and get closer to full health. Capitals coach stated "It's tough, he wants to play. We are pushing for our first Presidents Trophy and that is a big deal. Kyle is a huge part of that and wants to be on the ice but he also realizes that we need him as healthy as possible for the playoffs. We trust our other players and are actually excited to mix it up a little bit. Give some guys more minutes and some guys some reps in some different positions. It's good to give some guys practice in different spots so we have different options in different situations." Capitals current lineup: Evander Kane - Henrik Zetterberg - William Nylander Chris Kreider - Andrew Cogliano - Jakob Silfverberg Richard Panik - Ryan Dzingel - Melker Karlsson Brett Connolly - Erik Haula - Zack Kassian Nate Thompson Kyle Turris Keith Yandle - John Klingberg Paul Martin - Ryan Ellis Trevor vanRiemsdyk - Chris Wideman Dylan DeMelo Matt Murray Kari Lehtonen One notable change to the lineup is veteran Andrew Cogliano is moving up to the top 6 to center Kreider and Silfverberg. "Andrew is a big time leader for us and has been here for a while. We love him for his versatility. He brings so much speed and makes plays all over the ice for us in all situations. Getting him up there with with those guys will definitely change the look of that line and the pace that they play at but we know it will still be a very effective unit." The third line also looks a lot different with rookie Ryan Dzingel moving from wing to center and newly acquired Melker Karlsson joining Dzingel and the red hot Panik on the wing. "Zinger is a competitor and has been a huge reason why we have had so much success this season. He works hard and like Cogliano is extremely fast. One this often over looked about Zinger is that he also has a great set of hands. He's got lots of skill and can make some pretty high level plays with the puck and can also move the puck around to the other guys pretty quickly. He was a really good two-way center back during his time at Ohio State and I know he's excited about this opportunity. It's good to get the kid this experience to work on his versatility. We would love for him to become a piece like Cogliano in that regard. He has the natural skill-set for it. Karlsson already has a goal and an assist in his first few games with the Capitals and will now be getting the opportunity to play with some players that have been producing a lot of offense this season. "One thing you quickly realize about Melker is that he is an absolute puck hound. He's really fast and tenacious out there and is always working hard. Forces lots of turnovers and mistakes. He's really going to fit our system well and were really happy to have him join us. When you work as hard as him it's really easy to fit in. We have a really competitive group of guys all battling for ice time but they see Melker and how hard he is working and it rubs off on the whole group. He's earned an immediate respect from our guys and I think that type of work ethic is going to serve him well for a long time in this league. The Capitals are going to look much different without Turris in the lineup and though they are eager to get him back they are also excited to watch a few other guys earn some more minutes and prove themselves.
  4. Call-up: Pending the IR placement of Christian Folin, the Washington Capitals would like to call-up Dylan DeMelo to the NHL roster.
  5. First off, I would like to thank The Minister for all his hard work as well all the active and passionate GM's in the league for not only making this such an exciting trade deadline but for making this the best fantasy sports league in the world. The Washington Capitals had our busiest deadline ever today and was wildly out-shined by the other top dogs in the league who made this a very stressful and entertaining day. Out: Nic Dowd, Chris Thorburn, Jyrki Jokipakka, Greg Pateryn, Tanner Richard, 1st(2017), 2nd(2017), 3rd(2017), 4th(2016), 4th(2017), 3rd(2018), 4th(2018) In: Erik Haula, Melker Karlsson, Trevor vanRiemsdyk, Christian Folin, Dylan DeMelo Today we wanted to make sure we remained loyal to our group that got us here while also pushing as hard as possible to give us a legitimate opportunity to win the cup this season. Guys like Evander Kane, Henrik Zetterberg, John Klingberg, and Keith Yandle play huge roles for our team and even though they are most likely not going to be in the playoffs this season; we weren't willing to trade them away. These guys are and will continue to be major cornerstones for us moving forward. It has been that type of GMing that has gotten us to this point and we will continue to conduct our organization accordingly even though temptation at times were there. For that reason we did not add any top 6 forwards this deadline or any top 4 defenseman. However, our depth has been such a huge part of our success this year and we are hoping that some of those players can step up and win us the cup. They will have to play bigger roles than they have through most of the season but I think they are capable and have earned this opportunity. We would like to thank Chris, Nic, Greg, Jyrki, and Tanner for all their hard work and contributions as members of this organization to this point. I believe all of them have NHL careers in from of them and one in particular was very hard for me to let go of. When you find and develop players and they blossom into NHLers sometimes you gain sentimental attachments to them but at the end of the day my job is to win the cup for the city of Washington and trading these players today gave us the best opportunity to do so. I think we have added a group of men that will be very successful in their assigned roles and I do not remember the last time I was this excited for the playoffs. I do think we have a legitimate chance but also believe that we are still set up to win next year and for many years after that which has been the type of organization I have been trying to build for a long time now. Washington Capitals Updated Lineup: Chris Kreider - Kyle Turris - Jakob Silfverberg Evander Kane - Henrik Zetterberg - William Nylander Ryan Dzingel - Andrew Cogliano - Richard Panik Brett Connolly - Erik Haula - Zack Kassian Melker Karlsson, Nate Thompson Keith Yandle - John Klingberg Paul Martin - Ryan Ellis Trevor vanRiemsdyk - Chris Wideman Christian Folin Matt Murray Kari Lehtonen Updated Dover Dobermans Lineup: JT Compher - Andrew Copp - Danny O'Regan Anthony Duclair - Carter Rowney - Matthew Peca Victor Olofsson - Frederik Gauthier - Buddy Robinson Jean-Sebastien Dea - Nathan Walker - Pierre Engvall Shane Gersich Devon Toews - Dylan DeMelo Joakim Ryan - Christian Djoos Tim Erixon - Andreas Englund Darren Dietz, Viktor Loov, Luc Snuggerud Steve Michalek Tanner Jaillet Evan Cowley Unsigned Prospects: Clayton Keller 2017 Draft Picks: None 2018 Draft Picks: Washington 1st Washington 2nd
  6. Activation + Assignment: The Washington Capitals activate Dylan DeMelo from the injured reserve and assign him to the Dover Dobermans of the AHL.
  7. I am pretty sure you have Jason Demers and you don't have Karl Alzner. Also... His name is Pateryn and he got me one last assist tonight
  8. Report: Chris Thorburn is on the block for anything I see as valuable. This may not be the most exciting player available but I can assure you that Thorburn provides very solid depth at a very cheap price and is a versatile piece that can fit into the bottom of your lineup. * He has over 65 PIMS in 11 straight NHL seasons * He has played a minimum of 55 games in 10 straight seasons (not including lockout where he played 42/48) * He has scored a minimum of 11 points in 8 of his past 10 seasons. Currently @900k per season this guy brings value and likely will continue to bring value next season as well.
  9. Sorry to hear Bomba. Glad the kids are okay and hopefully things go as well as possible with your dog too.
  10. Assignment: The Washington Capitals assign Andrew Copp to the AHL. Assignment: The Washington Capitals assign Joakim Ryan to the AHL. Activation: The Washington Capitals activate Nate Thompson and place him on the NHL roster Activation: The Washington Capitals activate Greg Pateryn and place him on the NHL roster. With the Washington Capitals sitting in 1st place and the trade deadline approaching the Caps definitely see themselves as potential buyers come March 1st though with so many players part of the long term plans, the team will be looking for players to fill very particular roles. Also I am not sure how much internet I will have over the next week or so but I will try my best. Current Capitals Lineup: Chris Kreider - Kyle Turris - Jakob Silfverberg Evander Kane - Henrik Zetterberg - William Nylander Ryan Dzingel - Andrew Cogliano - Richard Panik Zack Kassian - Nic Dowd - Brett Connolly Nate Thompson, Chris Thorburn Keith Yandle - John Klingberg Paul Martin - Ryan Ellis Jyrki Jokipakka - Chris Wideman Greg Pateryn Matt Murray Kari Lehtonen We are definitely looking for at least one playoff bound defenseman to play on the 3rd pairing so if any teams have any available feel free to send me a personal message.

  12. Assignment: The Washington Capitals assign Anthony Duclair to the AHL. Assignment: The Washington Capitals assign Joakim Ryan to the AHL.
