The Trouble with Tyler Biggs

Today, the Toronto Maple Leafs were due to play in Washington. This upsets me for two reasons, one, that there's still no NHL hockey on TV, and two is that I'm very interesting to see what comes out of the Capitals' pseudo-rebuild. They went decidedly defensive last season despite holding the most exciting offensive talent in a decade, and it looks like their intention in the offseason was to ditch that.

Though they got rid of Alex Semin, they added Mike Ribeiro and Wojtek Wolski. The second is a bit of an enigma, an up-and-down player with decent possession numbers throughout his career though has played several different roles for each of the four teams he's played for. Ribeiro, however, is a talented, natural centre and though his numbers have declined, I think he should get an added boost this season.

Maybe there will be a season. There probably will be, and Washington is always an interesting team to track. But there won't be a game tonight. No, so today we will talk about Tyler Biggs.
