I seriously credit Gill and Gorges for Ovechkin no longer being a top-5 player in the league anymore. He has had a couple okay seasons, but those two shut him down and he was never the same again.

By the way, has it been confirmed that Bourque had a wrist injury?

Edit: I meant last season, which would explain his sub-par performance. Some one mentioned it on HF, just confirming.

Well Markov certainly looks like an elite no1 defensemen right now. Oh and Diaz is very impressive, he plays with a lot more poise, confidence and strenght than last year. Could he become a top4 defensemen?

Overall the team plays a grittier style and controls the puck much better. I hope it stays that way!

First period went by quick, not many whistles. No goals.
Second period was better, Capitals forget to come out on time and are now behind 4-0.

During that series, Ovi tried to switch from Goofy Mascot to Bad Boy and ****ed it up completely. With all his trophies, nobody takes him seriously.

I really don't think we messed them up though.

i'm more worried about Cole.. DD has produced every year he's played hockey.. he played overseas.. could be timing.. could be anything.. Cole on the other hand talked about retiring.. and could be putting together an Edmonton like season.. seems awfully similar to how Oiler fans described him

Just rewound my PVR. Cole wasn't even on the ice.

Diaz slapped the puck, Plekanec passed it to Markov and bam.

Yep. I've been calling this for years. The Caps looked absolutely astonished when their juggernaut offense could not get passed Halak. What I never understood is why Boudreau completely revamped their system into some pseudo-defensive hybrid. You ran into a hot goal. It happens.
