I don't understand what is wrong with the Caps..
Both Ovy and Semin averaging well under 1pt/gp.

If there's one management team that is more disappointed than Mtl, it's probably them.

very smart for him to say that. now if anyone of the caps is stupid enough to do something, Shanny will see it as pre-meditated

Ovechkin will lay him out on Bourque's first shift.

It's funny how Habs fans think they're some sort of accommodation to this team... "let's tank to get a high Draft Pick'' News flash, if you think you can stop supporting and cheering your team and come back the next season like nothing happened, you're wrong! you're not a Coach, General Manager, Scout or anything that has to do with managment of the Montreal Canadiens. You're a fan and only a fan, once you go on the tank mode and try to justify your reasoning with the poor excuse '' for the future'' be warned! you'll feel the guilt and realise, you are not a Habs fan anymore, just a bandwagoner, no matter where you live.
HABS FAN 4 LIFE...!

19 years= only 18 tries out of 30 teams.

Hockey is really a religion, the fanatics can't judge their team in fear of persecution from the flock, they can't stray remotely away and have doubts about how the team is manage because if they do they will be thrown out of the community of believers!!!!

I never thought or believed that tank nation aren't real fans. Think what you want, but it's strange when you call yourself a Habs fan but you hope your team loses.

Those that want to tank are fine by me. I'm sort of tweening on the idea myself depending how this stretch against playoff rivals goes, but remember one thing... no team in the NHL tanks on purpose except for a couple of the few remaining games if they have no chance what so ever. Expect our faithfuls to at least try and make a run for it, they deserve our support right now.

It's that same mentality that got us GOMEZ-GIONTA-CAMMALLERI-SPACEK-GILL 3 years ago LOL. Instead of building from the ground to up, we decided in panic mode to sign players so that we can make the playoffs!

We would be so much better if we would have waited and build from the ground up that year !

But I get you man, let's do it again, and again, and again, and again. one day it will work !

How is anyone on this board who encourages writing off the season a bandwagoner? We still actively discuss the team, watch games, go to games and buy merchandize. Don't tell me how to be a fan and I wont tell you how to be a fan. If I were a bandwagoner, I'd go cheer for one of the upper echelon teams or just quit following hockey cold turkey. This is a forum where we can discuss hockey and many of the subtopics that entails. I encourage writing off the season because I feel that this team can't make the playoffs and it may be better served looking at retooling for the future. I have no connection to the management, but I as a fan am entitled to my opinion, as are you. I wont belittle you for perceived acceptance of mediocrity and you can stop calling fans like me "fairweather" and "bandwagoner" because we don't have as much faith in the team as you.

We are all dedicated habs fans (enough to post on forums) and should be united by that fact, not divided. Don't judge me and I wont judge you.

I really see it as a pragmatic viewpoint. The playoff math is quite daunting and many of us feel that tanking helps this team in the long run so they can actually open a window of contention. Feel free to disagree with me, just remember that I am still a true fan and will remain so. I want them to win, I just see in a season like this one, a high draft pick may be the bigger prize than a 8th place finish and a first round exit.
