It is more or less the same personnel as last season. I guess Boudreau performed a miracle with that team...

1.)Letang? Orpick? Both are pretty solid 1/2 guys.
2.) Fischer, Legwand, Gaustad, Colin Wilson? Seems like a pretty decent middle to me. Not Crosby, Malkin, Staal, etc by any means, but still solid.
3.) Dan Boyle? Niemi isn't that bad.
4.) Yeah, nevermind about Ottawa. I got carried away.

2.) No #1C
3.) Neither is close to a rock #1
4.) Agreed.

But this is not the time for negativity.
This is where you lose most intelligent, business saavy people. In terms of winning the Stanley Cup, you may be correct, but that's not the only thing that determines a successful career.

So Boudreau wins damn near two Presidents trophies and Hunter gets us crawling into the playoffs as a ****ing 7th seed with what is basically an upgraded version of Bruce's teams and BB is the failure?

i am pretty sure that not winning a cup with shoane morrisonn on your first d pair is a sure sign of abject/total failure.

btw....glen hanlon was total failure when it came time to win. bruce boudreau qualified a team for the playoffs that was last in the conference at thanksgiving. that had never been done before. the next season his team was 2nd in the east and the next two 1st in the east. the last first was with three rookie goalies, two rookie d as his shutdown pair and two rookie centers.

i dont see how any of that is total failure.

BB was good, but he wasn't a wartime consigliere.

Here's hoping the Caps can skate with those New England Chowderheads.

I don't expect anything from Ward, last year was a fluke that fooled GMGM into seriously overpaying him.

The Caps need Holtby to be solid.
They need the Defense to tighten up and they need the scorers to F#$%ing score!!

Protect the kid in net. Play solid D, block shots and don't make any dumb mistakes. Holtby will be up to the task in net. I've got a good feeling about Holtby.

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!
love the optimism but the way i see it, even if the forwards create some offense, that defense is just

even if carlzner does well (which im far from confident of), i think green's softness is gonna be a killer given how much the caps are forced to play in their own end, and wideman-schultz is unthinkable.

They thought that fans like me were ridiculous in our assessment of Wilson as an anti-fighting and skill-focused coach who dulled the edge of a team that did have some guys that played really physical when left to their own devices(Simon and Witt especially).

I loved Brian Burke's comments about Wilson after he fired him recently. They pretty much confirmed what I've been saying about Wilson for the last decade.
What did he say?
