Lest we forget!

There is a small chance that we reach the 30 shot plateau..not getting my hopes up.

RandyHolt 01-17-2012 12:17 PM

I love how Dale was quick to point out that Rich Pilon hit him harder than he hit Pierre :laugh:

Unless you are team of little to no skill, shots may be overrated.

quality scoring chances > parade of perimeter shots

I thought I heard Dale say he grades players by quality scoring chances, not shots.

I know it was a cheap shot and all but I love the reaction of the rest of Dale's teammates, they all came in swinging 'coz they knew **** was about to go down.

This is going to sound bad but sometimes you kind of want to see your team thug it up.

Devil Dancer 01-17-2012 12:25 PM

Seems like the Caps typically play poorly against the Isles. Here's hoping for two points...

Lecavalier pretty much took a page out of the Dale Hunter book the other day when he sucker punched Malkin after Malkin had his way with the Bolts.

RandyHolt 01-17-2012 12:53 PM

From what i read, it seems Malkin was more like Hunter, at least up until he got sucker punched

From the internets - not sure if true

Malkin charging Kubina earlier and trying to low bridge another, spears him with a quick toe to the stomach and then reverse shoulder jacks Vinny

just twisting your tail rh, but you do realize that you over use this phrase.

I thought it was more from Lucic's book and not Hunter's. Vinny got tired of the punk getting away with a lot of crap and took the only real shot you'll get on someone like that.

First Caps game I'll be attending this season, got some dirt cheap tickets. Hope they don't play to the opponent.

CapitalsCupFantasy 01-17-2012 02:08 PM

Don't suck, don't play down to the competition.

Mystlyfe 01-17-2012 02:13 PM

No more leaky five-hole Vokoun. Please.

His hole has been air tight recently.

I don't think it's something that's ever going to go away completely... I mean, that's always been the book on him.

That's what the Cats fans all said. Looks like they were right.

Mystlyfe 01-17-2012 02:38 PM

I know, I'm just still sore about the last Islanders game when he let in three five-hole goals. Losing makes the drive back from Long Island a lot worse.

Heck, it was noticeable every time the Caps played them for the past few year.

Excellent goaltender, but everyone has their weakness.

RandyHolt 01-17-2012 02:49 PM

At least he is now able to leave the crease and skate around and keep himself in the game, instead of sitting there waiting for a shot, thinking to himself, don't let it go 5, don't let it go 5.

It's one reason I always like the stick handling Holtby and what he brought different vs Varl and Neuv. The leagues overall talent level still mandates many many teams dump it in.

well...now i know where the caps problems are. ov is thinking "dont do my move, dont do my move". vokoun thinking "dont let it go 5, dont let it go 5". these guys all sound like the dopey dog in the looney tunes cartoons, "which way did he go, george? which way did he go?"

The Islanders have outshot their last six opponents so, uh, expect another uphill game.

One of the league's premiere goal scorers, Matt Moulson, is a treat to watch.

I miss gloves.

Joking aside, you seem to be catching on that it can become detrimental to a players game to have to think about doing something, that they have seemingly done every single year from probably the age of 10 on, it not closer to 4 years old, naturally.
