I like to save the feature bits (usually all the derpy player survey stuff) from Breakaway, the monthly game playbook the Caps give out at Verizon. Here’s December 2016, and January/February/March 2017 (I uh sorta forgot I was doing these). Click to embiggen. Notable:
Ovi and Nicky both list Gladiator as their favorite movie. They are clearly soulmates.
Everyone except Holtby said their role model growing up was their mom, their dad, or both. Not Holtby. Holtby picked… Patrick Roy. This explains so much.
Karl Alzner’s favorite sports team is the Washington Nationals because he has excellent taste and is an excellent person all around.
Not gonna lie, as much as I’ve gotten fond of him, it still gives me a pang to see Brooks Orpik take sole possession of the Brooksie nickname.
Still not over Tom and Andre’s favorite television shows being “One Tree Hill” and “The O.C.” respectively.
