As many of you have already noticed, our Capitals Insider Chuck Gormley is on vacation. We'll get Chuck back by mid-August but should anything crazy-go-nuts go down, he may check in from the Sunshine State. Until then, our good buddy from the Great White North, Ben Raby, will be stepping in to bring you your daily Caps fix. JP Finlay and I will also help round out the coverage while Chuck is away.
Some of you may already know Ben from the Capitals Radio Network where he hosts first and second intermission reports on game nights. In addition to his work for CSN, Ben has appeared on WJFK's 106.7 The Fan, NHL.com, Canada's National Post, Globe and Mail, CTV Montreal and TSN's Sportscentre. Ben grew up in Montreal, is fluent in French and refers to his DVR as a PVR, which I am convinced is a Canadian thing.
JP, a local MarylandGeorgetown product, contributes to both SB Nation and our site right here. He also plays energy reporter by day and is a cheesesteak enthusiast.
We hope you enjoy the coverage and look forward to bringing you the Caps talk you crave. Be on the lookout for our weekly Friday Caps chats (Alan May this week!) and feel free to drop us a line in the comments about anything you want to hear more about andor discuss.
Thanks for reading!
