    The Vogel’ read on Caps site is quite fascinating. AOates meeting with MiG in LA early showing how much Caps was on him. If he improves his output as much as Ribs did, than Caps would be onto something this season that initially looked bleak.
    It seems Caps and MiG84 are now, as Oakland Athletics in baseball, front-runners of stat community to show to the hockey world that numbers never lie!
