On Tuesday night in Chicago George McPhee will begin his 16th season as general manager of the Capitals.
It’s been only three preseason games but if you take a poll of the Capitals’ locker room, the NHL’s experiment with hybrid icing is a bad one and it won’t get approved by the Players’ Association.

Back in the day, you could count on the first rookie game of training camp to be a hard-hitting, high-scoring, glove-dropping mess.
In a good way, of course.
