Washington Capitals 2013-2014 NHL Regular Season Haikus: 6 Day Countdown

The Washington Capitals play the Blackhawks in six days.  As part of the countdown spirit, I counted down half of the team in haiku form.  It’s very interesting to try to put your thoughts into poetry so please don’t judge too harshly!

Adam Oates

Second year in charge
Confident and competent
Jack Adams candidate?

George McPhee

His last year in charge?
Yes, if the Caps don’t go far.
Trust but verify

Braden Holtby

Number one goalie
Stares down Rich Peverly
Handle down the boards!

Michael Neuvirth

Contract extension?
Better be some good trade bait…
Call up Grubauer!

Karl Alzner

My fav defenseman
Solid defensive stalwart
He signed for a steal

Mike Green

Resurgence last year
A sniper from the right circle
Learning to defend

John Carlson

Made great strides last year
Early struggles, regained form
Make Team USA?

John Erskine


Tough, gritty, physical
Love the player, just too slow
Hate the contract though

Jack Hillen

Solid depth at point
Stockpiling  the bottom pair
Cheap puck-moving depth

Steve Olesky

Best offseason news?
He’s friends with Nail Yakupov
Convince him to join?
