Two seasons ago, under head coach Dale Hunter, Dmitry Orlov had the trajectory of a No. 4 defenseman.
It is not uncommon for the Verizon Center press box to be sprinkled with scouts from around the NHL.
As a coach, what do you do when two of your players ask to be traded in the same week?
Do you tell them to go home and wait to be dealt?
Do you ignore it and play them anyway?
Will defenseman Dmitry Orlov finally get a chance to play for the Capitals tonight on Long Island? Will goaltender Philipp Grubauer get his first NHL start of the season?
