Samantha Pell joins the show to help deep dive the Washington Capitals. We discuss their bizarre performance the last time we saw them, how it influenced their busy offseason, and what kind of effect all of those changes will have this year. Topics include:

  • What makes them one of the toughest teams to figure out
  • Why changes were necessary after the bubble
  • Unpacking all of their offseason moves
  • Peter Laviolette’s effect in Year 1
  • How the team wants to play differently
