Jesus, tickets to the home opener are pricey.  

 

 

 

I had tickets for that game as a part of a season ticket share plan...

 

... my preschooler has back to school night on the 3rd.  Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!

 

I hope this little mother****er realizes ALL that I’ve given up for him over the years.

They showed a preview of the home opener during Sunday Night Football.

 

"Watch the defending champion Capitals raise the banner."

 

Got me hyped AF. I love being defending champions.

 

DEFENDING. CHAMPIONS.

Had as in I traded the game for another person in the group.  Now the proud owner of Caps/Rangers tickets on October 17.

I'm still pissed off we're not opening against PITT. No joke, that's BS.

 

Why does that matter? No one in Pittsburgh cares and no one on that team cares. They’ve won 3 in this same era. It’s a big deal for the Caps, but no one in Pittsburgh will care. The opponent that night is irrelevant. It’s all about the Caps and celebrating what they did.

Yeah they only had the Caps do it once after Pittsburgh won the Cup, in 2016.  Last year they opened against the Blues and in 2010 against the Rangers.  

 

There is no "can't open against someone you beat in the playoffs last year" rule.  I would only call BS if they made the Caps do it twice.

Good point - for some reason I thought they made us open vs. PITT in 2016 and 2017, which would be unnecessary.

Prices will probably go down closer to game time but it is the first significant banner raising in this city in a long time. 

 

Well, yea, that's why I want to go.  I may try to scalp.

I cannot believe it’s already time for hockey, seemed like 2 days ago when we won it. I honestly didn’t want this off-season to end in a weird way, what a great summer it was.

Yeah.  I feels unnatural starting up again so soon. I guess that's what winning feels like.

Going to the home opener! I've always dreamed of seeing this particular banner being raised, now I get to party with my kinfolk!

 

If we play well and win a good one, may be the best hockey game I've ever went to and there's been some good ones

I mean...there's only gonna be a handful of times where you can watch your favorite team raise a championship banner.  There are going to be a lot of back to school nights.  One every year, actually.  

 

Think you'd be the only person skipping a back to school night to watch the banner get raised?

That hit was clean. Principle point of contact was the shoulder blade area. Head was more whiplash than anything else. Reputation.

You’re outta your mind 

 

 

Wilson is a ****ing lunatic and an idiot and someone on the team needs to sit him tf down and help him get his **** together.

I'm interested to see what Sundqvist's injury is, because my bet is shoulder, but that won't fit the league's narrative.

Wilson is going to get suspended for a little while after a headshot in a meaningless preseason game. 

 

I can see him get a 10 game suspension from this hit!

He isn’t a lunatic. He hit shoulder to shoulder, and the guys head snapped and he stayed down. That hit was nowhere near a head shot.

Yeah that’s a bad hit.  At least wait until the regular season maybe?  I dunno what to say.  No reason for it.

 

Payback for Kempney?

I would agree that it was 

But he probably will sit for awhile because of this

 At least he will be rested for the stretch run after new year's
