Welcome to Caps 'Round the Clock, a blog covering the Washington Capitals and the NHL. In season, I update the Blog after every practice and on game day with Caps news and information, and then provide a recap and analysis after each contest. I also write a periodical Prospect Watch and weekly feature pieces on the state of the Men in Red and other things Capitals. And of course, I will post videos and tidbits from around the League and offer my two cents as the season wears on. In the offseason, I write a Report Card for each player, and will keep you updated on all the news about the Caps through the summer. I'm glad you're here, and hope you come back!

Capitals Trade Semyon Varlamov to Colorado

As first reported by Capitals senior writer Mike Vogel, the Washington Capitals have traded goaltender Semyon Varlamov to the Colorado Avalance for a first-round pick in the 2012 draft and a second round pick in either 2012 or 2013.  This ends weeks of speculation around Varlamov's future and, to be frank, makes him Colorado's problem.  Neuvy time.
This is a steal, period.  The ninja, George McPhee, is at it again.  Two draft picks, including a lottery pick, for Varly?  Boom.
