———————————————————— by Kolby Solinsky Editor, White Cover Magazine ———————————————————— I have never cheered for the Washington Capitals before. I never had a reason to. I thought Alex Ovechkin — in his Hart Trophy seasons — was overrated and overhyped. Sure, he was winning awards and scoring more goals than Gretzky (not really), but I always knew Sidney […]Read more "Seeing Red: Why I (Now) Love the Washington Capitals"
———————————————————— by Kolby Solinsky Editor, White Cover Magazine ———————————————————— I’ve always felt that the worst thing the Washington Capitals could do was to stop being the Washington Capitals. This didn’t prevent them from doing so, however, but it was tragic the way the Beltway’s best abandoned their previously terrifying identity, pre-2011: fast-paced and all offensive, all […]Read more "What Were You Saying About Alex Ovechkin?"
We realize you may have already found this, but that’s just fine. The KHL’s official YouTube channel may just be your cure for the NHL’s Lockout blues. Even though most playlists and vids are titled with some Russian scribble (seriously, scribble), the Kontinental Hockey League puts all their highlights and recaps – with ENGLISH COMMENTARY – […]Read more "Hey, Guys! The KHL Has an English YouTube Channel!"
Hockey Headlines Roberto Luongo will become a Toronto Maple Leaf. No, wait. He won’t. (TSN.ca) More on that: “Toronto has already made a solid offer for Luongo, and when asked about a deal to the Leafs, GM Mike Gillis said there were several assets the Buds have which can get it done.” (Jason Botchford, The […]Read more "Around the Seawall: Nicklas Backstrom to Wear #99, Chelsea Wins, and Florida and South Carolina Mess Up the BCS"
Dale Hunter has left the Washington Capitals like he left Pierre Turgeon’s shoulder in 1993. Injured, lost, uncertain about the future, and unable to make it past Round 2.Good thing Washington sold the cow for those magic beans. Hunter may have thrust the Capitals into the second round, but there were many times where it […]Read more "Dear Washington, We Apologize For Dale Hunter"
There can’t be a more polarizing team in hockey. Really. Well, maybe that’s not true. Vancouver, Pittsburgh, Boston, Toronto… hockey’s messed up, man. But, when it comes to Washington, things get confusing. Odd, interesting, and confusing.No other team gains fanboys when it’s best player is playing worse. Ovechkin has looked like a 15-year-old version of […]Read more "Do You Love the Washington Capitals, Too?"
*What better way to decide a series than by a sequence of unrelated questions? (NOTE: Nobody at White Cover has ever seen Twilight.) —————————— Are the Bruins really a No. 2? No. They should be considered a Stanley Cup favourite (like, duh!), but the Bruins finished tied for fourth in points in the East. Are […]Read more "NHL Playoff Preview: (2) Boston Bruins v. (7) Washington Capitals"
Maybe a little fun would be more fun, no? (Photo “courtesy” of SensTown.com) So, Alex Ovechkin sucks. What about Alex Semin? Sounds like he’s bailed on the whole “professional” part of being an athlete. How about Tomas Vokoun? Don’t you just feel bad for the guy, signing with a team so he could finally get […]Read more "Maybe Washington Should Try Playing Like the Capitals"
Who, me? In the news again? (Photo “courtesy” of BattleOfTheBeltway) WHOA! Well, that didn’t take long… Bruce Boudreau, one day after getting axed by the Washington Capitals in the midst of one of their yearly dry spells, was hired to replace Randy Carlyle (wait, he got fired, too?) as the head heffe of the Anaheim […]Read more "Bruce Boudreau Replaces Randy Carlyle in Anaheim"
