• Capitals send trio to AHL

    News: The Capitals have sent D Karl Alzner, D Bryan Helmer and G Daren Machesney down to the AHL.
    Analysis: Alzner is a solid prospect in all keeper formats and could be back up after the All-Star break. The other two guys have no Fantasy value at this time.
  • Caps call up goalie Machesney

    News: The Capitals have recalled G Daren Machesney from the AHL.
    Analysis: Brent Johnson is apparently hurt, so Machesney will back up Jose Theodore for the time being. He has no Fantasy value.
  • Machesney returned to minors

    News: The Washington Capitals have assigned Daren Machesney to Hershey of the AHL and they recalled Frederic Cassivi from the minors to serve as backup to Olaf Kolzig.
    Analysis: It appears Brent Johnson (undisclosed) is still not ready to return. Either way, Cassivi or Machesney are not recommended Fantasy options at this time.
  • G Machesney sent to the AHL

    News: The Washington Capitals sent G Daren Machesney, D Sasha Pokulok, D Louis Robitaille, RW Matt Stefanishion, LW Joey Tenute and RW Stephen Werner to Hershey of the AHL on Wednesday.
    Analysis: Neither of the above mentioned players are worthy of any Fantasy consideration.
