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!

|The guy is on his way out.|
Galiev, 19, was the Capitals' third round selection in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, and spent last year playing for the Saint John Sea Dogs of the QMJHL. Galiev won the Memorial Cup with the Sea Dogs last year, talling 37 goals and 28 assists in 64 games. For my full prospect breakdown of Galiev, click here.
While it's good that Stan is under contract, you have to wonder why the Caps signed Galiev this early. He's going to play in Juniors another year, and EL deals are valuable for the club. Nevertheless, he's now officially a member of the organization.

|Aaaaand, BOOM goes the dynamite.|
As the regular season inches closer, day by day, the time has come to predict and begin to take a look at what the Caps and their fans can expect from each player on the roster. Today's player is Big John Studd Erskine, who will begin his sixth season in the organization in the fall.
Recap of Last Season: Erskine had a great year last season, compiling career highs in goals, games, points, blocks, and hits, and serving his purpose as a very good backup defenseman who was forced into regular duty because of injuries. He filled this role admirably and often without any glaring mistakes, so he deserves props for that. For my full post-season thoughts on Erskine, click here.
