Rookie camp for your Washington Capitals kicked off yesterday, and Pepper and Russell begin to preview the Caps' Southeast Division rivals, and what to focus on during division matchups in 2011-12. The Winnipeg Jets will be the last SE team that the Caps will face for the first time (on November 17th) in the new campaign, but the first that we'll preview.
Both nostalgic thoughts and immediate returns are the focus as we welcome Ed Tait of the Winnipeg Free Press to the show, to discuss how the Jets might match up against the Caps in their six tilts this season, the status of recent ex-Cap Eric Fehr, how the Jets team plans to manage its brutal travel schedule, the franchise's new identity, and more.
