What's up with the Washington Capitals?

I was just going over the current NHL standings and was somewhat surprised to see the Washington Capitals languishing at the bottom of the standings. You gotta wonder how a team with the likes of Jaromir Jagr, Olaf Kolzig, Peter Bondra, Robert Lang and Sergei Gonchar can only have 7 points in their first 15 games. The one thing to note about the Caps is that they usually get hot in the second half of the season. But the question is, can they afford to stink it up for that long?

Needless to say their coach Bruce Cassidy is on the hot seat and if things don't turn around real quick, everyone in the NHL is expecting a major shakeup in Washington.

Age old issue proven time and time again by the Rangers you can't buy a winner. Jagr is a cancer a big spoiled baby for 10 million a year he should be able to walk on water.

Jagr and Bondra are killing me in my hockey pools. I still have Kolzig on the bench because he has this tendency to get hot in the second half of the season.

The Bruce Cassidy firing from yesterday shouldn't come as a surprise. Hopefully Glen Hanlon can turn them around.
