Its like the team takes the high road every year with this goalie thing...and with after whistle scrums. "Oh...we don't want to take a penalty in those situations"

Man the **** up and win something for once on your terms.

Holtby is the answer

Bring up Holtby.
Not because Neuvirth isnt capable,
but because Holtby wouldnt take the
Rangers running him (Holtby doesnt need
any one to watch out for him) and they wouldnt be able
to score.

personally, i think the rangers should tread very lightly around other team's goaltenders.
they live and die with the one they have. theyve got nothing behind him. if the caps get rough around the nyr crease and even by accident lundqvist gets hurt, the rangers are doomed.

But the Rangers know, as we do, that the Caps won't retaliate against Henrik.

Maybe we can summon Kozlov from Siberia so he can run Lundy after scoring, maybe the best play I ever saw from him in a caps uni

Why wouldn't the Caps run Henrik? They did so against Roloson earlier in the season and it appeared to be a deliberate strategy. Whats the difference now?

BB has done his job, he has planted the seed with the Referees and the League in regards to both Neuvy getting bumped and Green taking head shots. Didn't Montreal complain last season during the play offs in regards to the Caps bumping Halak and then look what happened in Game 7 on the interference call against Knuble.

One or two things are going to occur in game 4 as a result of all of this, either they go back to calling the game like they had in Games 1 and 2 or the power play opportunities will be even or with the Caps having a slight lead in them. Either way it works to the Caps advantage, because of the Master Sandbagger and his comments.

Seriously. Win your own ****ing battles rather than relying on the refs. It all feeds into the passive mentality they adopt at times, especially when they believe they have some room to coast. You can't find the edge of what's allowable by doing nothing at all. It's not like they've got previous season's PKs where a strategic penalty here or there would be dicey.

Also don't think Neuvirth was as cool as his coach has been staying.

The answer isn't with King or Finley, it's with this group coming together and fighting for one another.

So one game against TB is evidence against dozens of other gentle efforts? And they didn't really run Roloson, they just crowded him.

Edit: I should note the caveat to this strategy: it's assuming King has the ability to pound anyone.
F it, sign Donald Brashear to a 1 game contract (actually it should be a 1 shift contract), let him "Colton Orr" Prust and or Avery and then get suspended.

ive got no problem with running lundqvist. on the other hand i saw zero sign that neuvirth was remotely effected by the rangers childish games.

like i said before, they will have to try and hurt him to get his attention.

He wasn't terrible or flustered, just not what I'd really call as 'cool as a cucumber' as was asserted. He didn't handle the traffic in front of him as well as he could have on the Prospal goal sequence and it impacted his normally sound rebound control.

(Granted, either Ovechkin or Carlson should have had Prospal anyway...)

My point was the Caps have done this in the past, and it appeared to be a deliberate strategy so why can they not try it again? And I distinctly remember Hendricks doing more than crowd him, but I could be wrong.

If the Caps aren't willing to run Henrik, I am fine with that. But it is completely unacceptable to me for the Caps to do nothing in response to the Rags after what they did to Neuvy in Game #3. They need to stick up for Neuvy no matter what. The kid deserves that much.

he is the hockey version of a jump shooter.

i have nothing against fehr. if the caps need a physical game from the 4th line, taking hendricks out and putting fehr in isnt going to get that done. if hendricks isnt going to play his game, put beagle in. if the caps want a fehr in, it calls for a game plan change.

I don't think they're soft. They actually hit when they play hard and their stars aren't wallflowers. They appear soft when there's a lack of effort.
