Bring on anyone, I have the upmost faith our boys will bring it EVERY game no matter who we play in the first round. U think they are playing well now, just wait till that first round, they are going to ratch it up a few more gears. What an amazing team we have.
In the first round? The Caps. I'm sick of seeing them in the playoffs and living within their TV coverage area means I have to watch the local broadcast for all of the games and **** Joe Beninati
Despite their struggles this year they're also a team I hate to see the Rangers play because you can have **** like what happened last game where the Rangers are playing well and doing **** right and then freaking Semin will just unleash a perfect shot that's unstoppable and suddenly the Caps are right back in it
They're inconsistent as **** but they have players with so much talent that things can turn on a dime
I just want to see some other teams...
Beyond them, Montreal would suck but I don't think they'll make it in. Toronto wouldn't be my first choice either but I'm not too scared of them.
ppl WANT to play the caps? By the time the playoffs come around they'll have Backstrom and Green. NO...THANK...YOU
I'm not sure Backstrom is gonna be back this year...he's not even skating right now, he got messed up bad.
On the other hand, the coach is pointing fingers at the players, the players are criticizing the coach, the whole thing looks bad in DC right now. I'd be perfectly happy to see them miss the playoffs at this point
If we can play at or near the level we have been, hank included, the only thing standing in our way of winning the east, IMO, is sidney crosby coming back, or boston playing like the 2011 playoff version. The way things look, we're setting up for a possible pitt matchup in round 2. a healthy crosby would scare the **** out of me in that scenario.
if we win the division, round 1 is all the same to me. bunch of average teams, pitt/phily/nj wouldn't fall to 7 or 8 probably. just win the division, take care of business, and then round 2 will be tough.
rangers are the best team in the NHL bring em on .....hank is a brick wall the blue line is as solid as it gets....the pp is starting to light the lamp man i wish the playoffs started tommorow.....that said if we lost to the islanders in the first round. it would be knife in the neck time for me..LGR
