John Erskine wants to forget last season as he had a tough time coming back from knee surgery.
Erskine told then-coach Adam Oates that he was not in game shape but his pleas were ignored and he got off to a terrible start in which he never recovered. The Capitals benched him for weeks on time and it's only now that he is feeling like his old self. "It's hard," he said. "When someone went wide on me I didn't have that explosive power. Over this summer I had a lot of time to work on it and it feels a lot better than it did last year." Erskine was minus-five in 37 games and had only four points. He should get over 100 penalty minutes this season if he remains healthy so he does have some fantasy value. Sep 21 - 10:41 AM
