Jason Chimera's got jokes.

Known as a "class clown" during his time in Washington, Chimera, now a member of the New York Islanders, had some interesting thoughts on his former team, especially Braden Holtby.

The Islanders face the Capitals Saturday night at Verizon Center in the Capitals' home opener. When asked if he had any secrets on the Caps that could help New York, Chimera had this to say:

Score 20 goals and all of a sudden you become an expert.

Chimera spent over six season with the Capitals before leaving in free agency over the offseason. He matched a career-high in goals last season with 20 and evidently is feeling pretty good about it.

We'll see just how "easy" it is Saturday night. Game time is 7 p.m.
