Besides, I'm confidant after the NYR are eliminated we'll come to find out Dubi has been playing hurt these past few months.

the good - avery contributed. Lundy did as much as he could as usual

Staal didn't look like his normal self

We'll need some big time lucky bounces to win the next game

Poor Marc Staal looks gassed. Kid is logging massive amounts of ice time.

We're just gonna have to chalk up this years play-offs as a learning experience for the kids.

Honestly, win or lose, I would be ecstatic if we just went out there with the single goal of taking every frickin shot we get. Shoot from everywhere, never pass up a shot, shoot even from impossible angles... just SHOOT! If you pass up a shot, you get punished (laps, benching... I don't care).

When you shoot you don't know what is going to happen. That's how we have to score, because the other team doesn't know what's going to happen either. Rebounds happen, you get broken plays with people having to adjust, etc. But they know exactly what we're going to do when we try to create stuff... battle in the boards and lose it. Just look at what Kaberle did on that Dubinsky goal a few weeks ago. He was dumbfounded when Cally didn't dump it in along the boards.

I still don't understand how we can play like that in the first and then just stop

We will have about $15 - 20 million in free cap space next season. Get Brad Richards, instant improvement to the team. Let go of Eminger, Gilroy, McCabe, Fedotenko. Sign Boyle and Anisimov cheap ($1-1.5 million), ink Dubinsky to a short term deal no more than $2.5-3 million, ink Callahan to a short term deal no more than $3 million. Than, use whatever cap space you have left to sign a legitimate puck moving defense man. If you have to make a trade to do that, and move another player, than so be it. That HAS to be our game plan during the off season. Anything less than that would be a major failure.

Yep, the Rangers look like school boys compared to the Caps. They don't have a chance, the Caps will move on after 4 maybe 5 games.

Question is, why are the Caps so much stronger than the Rangers? Fire Torts..

They played OK in the 1st and 3rd(outside the lack of scoring).
A horrible 2nd lost them the game.
I just hope we at least can win a few games. I hate those smug caps fans on the main board.

Mcdonagh staying classy.

Pisses me off that you'll be castrated by the league if you mention a word about their refs or ********. It's a complete ****ing disgrace and makes me lose respect for the sport as a whole.

Staal and Girardi have nothing left to give. I can't blame them.

Henrik played absolutely amazingly.

Everyone else - meh.

I refused to watch post game show. I think Henk should ask for a trade. This team isn't going anywhere in the near future.

Name me one "legitimate puck moving defense man" that will be on the market come free agency.

Yeah it has nothing to do with Ovechkin, Backstrom, Semin, etc.

Their top center is Backstrom. Ours is Eric Christensen...

Voted for Avery because I'm bored of voting for Henrik.

Team just isn"t that good. Winning games with heart and hard work is effective in the regular season but you need talent in the playoffs.

What a doozie of a game, nearly everyone was bad.

Thanks Anisimov and Dubinsky for showing. Staal and Girardi were horrible, but I can't blame, they get far too much ice time. McDonagh was really good I thought, and some of the calls on him were laughable.

I love how Ovechkin can charge and leave his feet for every hit as well. It's cute. I hate that ****ing ***** so much.

I love the strategy whip the it in front. That only works for so long. At the end of the day you need legit skill. You can not have Drury in the lineup it done for him, W2 get him as far away from this team as possible. Get Zucc back in and add John Mitchell and hope for the best.

Prospal has the heart, but not the wheels. It's painful watching him move around, constantly beaten to the puck.

Entire teams looks slow.

Listened on the radio, sounds like our entire forward group has gone cold. Oh well, that's a shame. We're a good team when they're clicking. Not so much when they're not.
