I'd prefer both to be in really.

I don't understand the Halpern thing. He made a couple bumbling PHYSICAL errors in the Winnipeg game and has been in the doghouse since. I really don't get that at all since he's been pretty good this year.

Comprehension is not a requisite for cooperation.

Well to be fair Witt in his prime was a far superior player to Erskine.

Hahaha.

I'll reserve judgement til I see who is actually in the lineup, but this could be an extremely stupid decision, even by Hunter's standards.

Dale has been a success. He somehow got this apathetic bunch to make the playoffs.

God only knows what'll happen tonight.

Go Ovie!
Go Holtby!

lot needs to happen. ovi = ovi, not slowvi. semin does something. carlzner plays like its 2011. wideschultz dont make too many epic mistakes. holtby the same. hunters nuts dont shrivel so much that you need a scope to find 'em.

but if those things happen, 3-2 white.

GO CAPS!

So did that make Boudreau a success over his tenure as coach of the Caps in your opinion or are you just setting the bar a whole lot lower for Hunter?

zero if they lead. no real fans at least. its impossible. i know from experience as will anyone else who tries to stay realistic. im as negative as anyone in general and always think "typical caps" if the opponent goes up 2-0 after 10, but cant help myself when the good guys have it going on. just cant. with a realistic head right now, i say the caps taking game 1 is only well and good for their 1 or 2 Ws in this series, but come 10pm ET if theyve got more goals on the board than b-town i know i wont be thinking like that.

You have a lot to learn, kid. And if you're not a kid, I'm sorry. Find a library.

The Caps have been apathetic since the Halak. Even worse though, the roster is thin. No center depth at all. No rock #1 goalie. No rock #1 D man.

It hasn't been pretty but we are in the playoffs. That's an achievement.

How many teams have center depth, a rock number 1 goaltender, and a rock number 1 blueliner?

Pretty much the same team that was 1st in the east last year... Makes the playoffs and it's an achievement.

OK.

In the past couple of years the caps were the fav. Now they are the underdog, maybe the pressure is off this team and maybe they can come out and play like the fans know they can.

Boudreau was a total failure.

McPhee was, too. Boudreau had some good teams and was badly outcoached. McPhee had years to trade some nuts and didn't.

Hunter may not be good enough. But he has done all a man can with a team like this. Are some here under the impression this is good personnel?

But this is not the time for negativity.

Boston yes.
Pittsburgh doesn't have a rock #1 dman.
Nashville doesn't have good center depth.
San Jose doesn't have a rock #1 dman or a good goalie.
Ottawa doesn't have any of the 3.

Posted this on the main board. 11-1 with young guns in the lineup, outscoring opponents 46-24, inuding games against PHI, NYR, PIT, DET, NJD, OTT, FLA x2 (all playoff teams).

I really feel like this team can do some damage. Remins me of Philly vs NJD in 2010. Philly beats NYR in last game to make the playoffs, and get the 7th seed (just like us). NJ thought they were going far with Kovalchuk (just like Boston since they won last year). But Philly played like the team it was supposed to be finally (just like us as we've had many key injuries) and beat NJ on it's way to the SCF.

Can't wait for tonight, so excited!
