Capitals Troy Brouwer takes a shot at Semin, Tim Brent responds

6 posts in this topic


Troy Brouwer:

"It was tough to lose his scoring ability, when he wanted to play," Brouwer said. "But all in all I think we've been doing well without him. ... Some nights you didn't even know if he was going to come to the rink. It's tough to play alongside guys like those because you don't know what you're going to get out of 'em."

Really Troy, you've been doing well without him? In what league are you doing well without him? I find it funny that Brouwer is calling out Semin for a lack of effort when Brouwer was called out for the same thing when he played in Chicago.

Tim Brent tweets to Brouwer:

"I can say on behalf of his teammates that we love having him here, and he has been a big part of our success so far with his consistent play and work ethic. NOT only his scoring ability. I hope he sticks it to them."

That a boy Timmy. I love seeing the team stick up for one another.

Buddy of mine was skeptical of Semin. I told him Semin just wasn't happy in Washington. It effected his play. Told him he'd show out and help us BIG time in our front 6, and he has. Brouwer is just pissed that his team sucks and they lost their only player worth a damn outside of AO. Sucks to suck.

I have to admit, I had my reservations about Semin, but he has been better than I remember him ever being in Washington. I know he has put up better #s in the past, but he has been, arguably, our best player this season.

The way he and EStaal push each other is amazing. I think some of Semin's aggressiveness is starting to rub off on El Capitan and we are finally getting to see the Staal we'd always hoped we'd see. There is a hunger in Eric this year like I have never seen before.

I'm calling it right now, one of Faulk or Westgarth will be fighting Brouwer tomorrow unless Troy pussies out.

    • My question is whether we're sold enough on him to trade up with Jacksonville to ensure we get him. What would that take? I'd offer them our late 2nd rounder that we got from the Pats, take it or leave it. No way they trade down just for our 3rd round comp. pick and no way Gettleman gives up our original 2nd rounder. I maintain that the best case scenario for the Panthers is for at least 1 QB to go in the top-6, either to the 49ers or Jets. Jacksonville could opt for Solomon Thomas or Jonathan Allen over Fournette, but not likely anyone else other than Garrett, who is going 1st overall without a doubt. Would also be helpful for the Titans to go safety over corner, leaving the Jets with the option to take Lattimore. 1. CLE: Myles Garrett
      2. SF: Mitchell Trubisky
      3. CHI: Jonathan Allen
      4. JAX: Solomon Thomas
      5. TEN: Malik Hooker
      6. NYJ: Marshon Lattimore
      7. SD: Jamal Adams
      8. CAR: Leonard Fournette
