George gave up on Ruth and Osala. Otherwise I think he loves all his picks a bit too much. I am not certain and regardless, I wanted a roster shakeup this year. Getting Hannan was a good start he needed to do more. Adding at the deadline was quality but we needed guys headed out.

I want Sturm benched next game. Sorry Neuvy, its Varly's turn. He will have to run the table for us IMO. Our forwards D coaches and Neuvy just couldnt get it done. No excuses. The only guy that hasnt had a chance should get it next.

I just want Schultz and Boudreau gone. Start there. Adding Eakin, a sandpaper skinned ginger with speed and some skill from western canada, will help and maybe keep everyone on D except Schultz. See how things go.

I feel really bad for Jason Arnott. Thought he was coming to a cup contending team, plays his ass off, brings vet experience, and everyone gives up in front of him. He is probably dumbfounded with the caps right now.

Why bench Sturm and not Nicky? Bench Nicky and put MP85 in the line up for the so called "spark". What could it hurt?

A message needs to be sent to the entire team that they need to pull their heads out of their *****, and quick. What better way then to take a player signed to a huge contract, that is playing like ****, and replace him with a kid in MP85 that would kill for another chance at the NHL level?

Neuvy has done nothing to deserve getting pulled in favor of Varley. If a statement needs to be made then make it by benching Nicky. I never thought Nicky would be the type to get a fat contract and coast. Well that appears to be the case. Time to make an example out of him.

Capitals have too many Euros who can't elevate their game in the playoffs. It's the same thing, year after year, after year.

stanleycaps98 05-03-2011 09:20 PM

Sounds like Green is unlikely. Bring on, not TFS...

There will be some great quotes from him on Boudreau if he doesn't resign and fat f***er stays.

Wow...24 seconds...2 goals for the Bolts...get out the brooms...SMH...

Biggest reason for the losses by far is 19

It's a shame really. I'm not a Caps fan, but I'd be pissed if was in your position. The difference between the way this team plays in the regular season vs the playoffs is dumbfounding. Start drafting some NA players. Alzner and Carlson are good starts.

If he does not sign with the Caps this offseason, I can't wait to hear what he says.

They have had leads and blown them thanks to their stupidity and passive tendencies. Some defensive improvement.

I disagree. Three playoffs ago, the team went on an amazing run down the stretch to make the playoffs and lost a heartbreaker to the flyers with a bs goal. Two playoffs ago, the team struggled against a mediocre New York team but won in 7 games then played a great series against the to be Stanley Cup champions until the 7th game complete implosion. Last playoffs, the team won the President's trophy and played well and got out to a lead against an outclassed team in the first round and proceeded to implode and lose the series to the number 8 seed. This year the team got the number 1 seed again and took care of business in the first round against a good New York team and is now probably going to be swept by a pretty good team in Tampa Bay. See all scenarios are completely different. Year after year, the team comes up with new ways to frustrate you.

Too many Euros? What about guys like Green?

Load of crap, utter garbage. You will see a huge difference with essentially the same group next season, assuming we have a new coach. Almost all my predictions have been on target, as will this one. I hope someone bumps this thread a year from now.

If I was BB I would put Holtby in next game. I think he would step in and play amazing as he did in the regular season.

Boudreau says Mike Green has lower body injury, explaining his absence for most of 3rd period. Green was seen limping out to team bus.

I think you have a bigger problem with Backstrom than you do with Green.

stanleycaps98 05-03-2011 09:31 PM

Goalies can play as amazing as they want. The team in front of them have to show some will.

My goodness what is up with people and reverting back to bad goaltending as the culprit.

I think it would be a catharsis of sorts.

Did you see the last minute of tonight's game? The team had given up. They gave up in game three down by one goal with a minute to play and down in the series 2-0. That means they've given up.
