Peter (that’s me!) went on the Up the Pucks hockey/punk podcast to talk about the Washington Capitals, Danzig, and Bunheads. So, ya know, the usual. [NSFW: Salty language, mostly some F-bombs up front]
We spend a good deal of time talking about realignment as well as what’s in store for the Caps soon. There’s some pretty good tunes in there as well, so I heartily giving it a listen. Plus: you can hear Georgia the bulldog snoring the whole time.
Like peanut butter and chocolate.
Around the 30-minute mark we actually start dissecting Caps hockey. I identify goaltending as the Caps’ biggest problem (this was recorded a couple weeks ago, so Braden Holtby’s numbers were still atrocious). Then as a group we do the ceremonial reliving of the Washington-Montreal series from 2010, which is still the root of all problems in the franchise.
We go on to discuss what we want out of realignment, rivalries with Pittsburgh, and some advanced stats dabbling.
Lemme know your thoughts– particularly if the four games since this recording have provided a new perspective for you.
Thanks to Brandon and other-Peter for having me on again! I had a blast.
