Show #38 Schmidt Happens

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

We lament (partially in jest) the departure of #88 from the Capitals lineup.  Also some good news with 2 key FA signings.  Musings over what to do next in Caps land....

Kind of a short one here, sorry if this one was a bit rushed, way to much life bullSchmidt getting in the way...

Show #36 Moving on, into the Great Unknown

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

Cathartic last episode, now we all need to move on as Caps fans. At least some of us will anyway, those who are still pining over a certain Predators' forward who was once Capitals' property would beg to differ.

Just my effors in trying to send good your local Caps podcast if you please.

Thanks for listening!


Show #30 Last Ride to the Playoffs

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

Welcome Caps fans!

Naturally we'll discuss not-so-Caps news for the first half.  But these are important to hockey.  Plus how could I pass up a chance to make fun of the Commissioner? Also, a triumph for women's hockey in the USA.  And the misadventures of a hated rival.

In Caps news, we go over the current road trip and what to look for in tonight's game. Plus kudos to an unsung Swede who's earned a moment in the NHL spotlight for a, not the one you're thinking of.  Plus could it be goodbye for our beloved backup?




Show #29–Playoffs here we stumble!

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

Ugh, another Left Coast trip sees the Caps retun in a state of being Californication...

But it looks like our boys have gotten things back on track.  Also, I weigh in on an internal debate between defenseman and playing time.

We also celebrate a new fan celebrity among our ranks, none other than a gentleman from across the sea I'm proud to call a friend.  I retell the story of his awesome soothsaying during a recent game.

In other news there are playoffs that are in the process of just getting to a looooong start.  And there is the conclusion of the other Cup.

Winding up the show is a look back at a former Caps' goalie who uh has our number.  Enjoy!




Show #26 OPENING NIGHT 2016-17!!!!!

Tuesday, October 11th, 2016


of the NHL....

Yes what a long strange journey it's been.  And speaking of journeys Our Washington Capitals are one one right now. So yes there will be a brief history of NHL and a rallying cry to go forth to 2017 with nothing less than Frederick Arthur's Chalice in hand when it's all over.

But not without some groveling and begging first.

Confused?  You might be after this newest episode.

Show #25 You Have Chosen Wisely

Saturday, September 17th, 2016

Beware the False Grail!

On this my 25th episode I spend approximately 25 minutes putting to shame the NHL's latest attempt to sully the sport of hockey.  Will they never learn?  But if you're Jonesing for real hockey and aren't we all, I have something of a preview for the upcoming season.  Some thoughts as well on our as yet final unsigned free agent...hope he comes home soon.

Show #24 Moves Like BMac

Wednesday, June 29th, 2016

Welcome to Vegas, baby!  Sort of....In this eppy we give the once over with regards to the latest NHL franchise and end of season awards that were doled out.  Some thought is given to next year's Expansion Draft and its consequences.  We also go over the Caps' picks in the 2016 Entry Draft as well as other related events.

Editor's note---Yes I do know that Jakob Chychrun was actually taken by Arizona and not Ottawa. However, due to unforeseen technical issues I was unable to correct this on tape, so my apologies.

Bonus content for hanging charge!

Show #23 Gordie Howe Dedication broadcast

Tuesday, June 14th, 2016

Congratulations you bastards from that nasty ass excuse of a that that's out of the way we can get on to more important things.  Like why the PHWA sucks.

RIP Gordie Howe.  I will do my Blueliner best to honor the man who truly earned the nickname of Mr.. Hockey.

An "easter egg" of sorts after the end.  My commentary on recent events.  Feel free to skip if you feel you might be offended.

Show #22 Season’s End

Thursday, May 26th, 2016

And we are once again enjoying our late spring vacation from hockey...In this season wrap up, I go over what went wrong and what could have gone better for our Capitals.  Also, my long-planned rant against the local media, who, in my estimation could have at least been somewhat more supportive by being what they are supposed to be.  This will be the final weekly episode until next season,
